Keychain Essentials — What you need to carry for safety

My key chain essentials. As you can see on my key chain, I have a kubaton, this is called the heart attack, and this is pepper spray. Each one of these tools is effective in and of itself.

I have them all on my key chain because you need to be prepared for anything. From a standpoint of a single mom, I want to know that I can protect my children and myself. Now obviously these tools are to defend yourself and your loved ones, not to start fights or to threaten anyone!

All 3 of these tools can deter any attacker; none of these tools are sharp. As you can see, it is pointed but it’s not sharp to the touch and neither is this one.

The pepper spray comes in a holster so it protects you or your child from accidentally spraying it. You have to unsnap the holster and then turn the spray into the correct position, holding it up and then pressing the button in order for it to spray.

All of these are legal in the United States and the Heart Attack is $4.95, the Kubotan is $5.00, and the Pepper Spray is $9.95. On my other videos, I will show you how to use each one of them individually.

The most important thing to remember is that you have the right to not be a victim or be afraid that you cannot protect yourself or your loved ones. Thank you very much!

73 year old woman beaten, raped and robbed in daylight

Sadly I write over and over again about attacks that happen during daylight hours as do many others yet people still let their guard down. It doesn't matter if it is day or night, a public or secluded place, you can still fall victim of crime if you are not careful.

Take for example this story below about a 73 year old woman who was out bird-watching when she was attacked, raped and robbed in broad daylight in central park with tons of people all over the park. It seems she had a run in with the freak previously when she inadvertently filmed him while he was masterbating in the park.

A 73-year-old birdwatcher strolling through Central Park was raped in broad daylight Wednesday by a monster who she said began his assault with four words: “Do you remember me?”

Then he dragged the petite woman into the brush and brutalized her just steps away from the tourists and sun worshippers gathered at tranquil Strawberry Fields, police said….More at Woman, 73, robbed and raped in Central Park in broad daylight – New York Daily News

She made a couple of crucial mistakes and I don't mean to pick on her or blame her in any way but there were things she did that did not help out her situation. 

First, when she encountered him previously masturbating in daylight hours in a heavily used park like Central Park and had that bad encounter with him coming over to her after she filmed him, she should have called the police to let them know this pervert was running around the area.

Second, having seen this sicko before during daytime, it would have been prudent to keep an eye out for him and also to have carried a pepper spray or personal panic alarm. Anything might have helped to fend him off long enough for someone else in the park to come to her assistance.

When they catch this scumbag he should be castrated as he will only do this type of thing again to someone else and the next woman might not be so lucky and might wind up dead because this guy isn't right in the head.

Just remember, daylight and public does not equal safe!

Another perfect example why elderly people should have something like Life alert. In this case it saves elderly woman from her attacker. God only knows what his real intentions were and what might have happened to her had she not had the life alert. Every penny she ever spent for that service was all justified in this one action alone.

No matter what you choose to do to increase your personal safety, just do something!


Pepper spray for running can protect you from people & dogs

One of the things you need to take into consideration no matter which area you choose to run in, is your safety. From wearing reflectors when running in low light situations on the road to pepper spray for joggers to help defend yourself should the need arise you need to be smart.

There are so many instances of runners being attacked by criminals as well as dogs that it warrants carrying one of the running Mace sprays. The other benefit is being able to help.

The other day I was out for a run it was just around dinner time and I saw another runner off in the distance and she seemed panicked so I ran towards her. At this point I noticed the 2 dogs who chased her down and started to bite her.

I wasn’t far so i got there pretty quick and kicked the one dog in the ribs with everything I had and I then pepper sprayed the other dog just before I kicked it as well.

Now bear in mind I am an animal lover but these dogs were vicious and I had no other way to stop them from hurting this lady. She had a few punctures on her legs where they chomped on her to bring her down and another set of bites on her right hand and arm. Thankfully none of her injuries were life threatening although she was bleeding bad she was fine after going to the hospital.

Be it man or animal it was a great feeling to have the tools to help save some woman from a vicious attack. Even if you don’t need it to help yourself you may need it to help someone else so it is worth the tiny investment in a pepper spray for runners. Take this article I found about a pack of dogs that attacked two guys.


Jose Ledesma has been charged with two misdemeanor counts of failing to protect the public from dogs and two misdemeanor counts of failing to restrain a dog. He was arraigned Tuesday.

Ledesma was caring for a friend’s pit bulls at the time of the attack, the district attorney’s office said.

In November, John and Richard Garritson were running with family members along a trail in the hills of Valley Center when they were attacked by as many as six dogs. The dogs were roaming free in the area, they told San Diego 6….More at Man Charged in Pit Bull Pack Mauling – San Diego 6

I found that story with just a quick search and I just wanted to show you that I am not trying to scare anyone; just trying to help keep you and those around you, safe.

Cab driver pepper sprays unruly passenger

Being a taxi cab driver can be dangerous work even outside of the big city settings. Thankfully, most drivers are smart enough to carry some type of protection in case of trouble. 

I came across a story of a taxi driver that had to do just that, use non-lethal force in the form of pepper spray to protect himself from a allegedly drunken and unruly passenger. Check out the story below.

The cab driver told police that he gave Osborne a ride to a few local businesses Monday afternoon, and then took him back to Osborne’s home on Turkey Creek Ridge Road in York.

Osborne tried to use his debit card to pay but it was declined, the report states. The taxi driver told police his passenger then refused to pay and “became unruly when asked to get out of the taxicab,” according to the report….More at Police: Rock Hill taxi driver subdues drunk passenger with pepper spray – The Herald |

Alcohol, $35. New shoes, $80. Pepper sprayed and arrested after a night of drunken stupidity…..priceless! LOL. 34 years old and still acting the fool. Guarantee he was sitting in his cell saying why didn't I just pay the guy and sleep it off at home. It just shows that man or woman, it doesn't hurt to carry a pepper spray or some other type of self defense weapon, just in case.

Some college students get a taste of what it is like to get pepper sprayed. I can tell you from personal experience it isn't fun at all. Your eyes want to clamp shut so bad it is unbelievable. It hurts for sure and although there are some rare individuals that eat so much hot stuff they can withstand the spray but I have yet to meet one.

Police use pepper spray on man after he resists arrest

Police had to use pepper spray on a criminal in order to subdue him. Only thing is it wasn't his first police encounter of the week.

It seems this guy was busted in May and in July 3 times! It doesn't surpise me this idiot resisted arrest and had to be sprayed. You'd think being in his mid twenties that he would get the idea. Check out the full story below.

Two days later, Hicks was arrested again, this time in East Somerville.

At about 3:30 p.m. on July 25, an officer was at the corner of Pennsylvania and Minnesota avenues writing a citation for a moving truck when he saw a “suspicious male” on Connecticut Avenue looking into driveways, according to another police report.

The officer, who “previously had at least two encounters with him,” recognized the man as Hicks, who had just been arrested two days earlier and in June and May.

The officer wrote in his report: “Based on Mr. Hicks' suspicious behavior, I believed him to be scouting the neighborhood for criminal purposes. In fact, earlier in the afternoon I saw Mr. Hicks acting very suspicious as he walked back and forth [on] Broadway in East Somerville.”

When the officer tried to question Hicks, the 24-year-old tried to flee and push the officer away, according to the report.

The officer brought Hicks to the ground, Hicks continued to struggle, and the officer used a short burst of pepper spray to subdue him, the report says….More at Police: Man Arrested for Laptop Theft, Is Pepper Sprayed Two Days Later –

Although this guy will probably wind up in jail this time, he should be sent to a work camp. Prison is too easy for the criminals and they need to start making these scumbags pay their own way by working for the state.

Hopefully this woman will get the book thrown at her for assaulting that old woman like that with pepper spray, how nutty must she be to do this type of thing. She seems like the perfect candidate to go off the hook and kill someone she gets mad at. This may be a good thing in the long run if she gets the jail time she deserves.

A Pepper Spray Gun can help save you from attack

A woman was just recently attacked and she did the right thing and thankfully, it worked out in her favor but it easily could have went the other way. I have always said that when it comes to possessions, they aren't worth dieing for so don't fight them but when it comes to your person that is a different story. That's when you fight with all you have in you.

You can read part of the story of this womans attack and there is a link to the rest of it should you want to see the entire thing. 

Lincoln Police say a woman was attacked and nearly raped while walking home in north Lincoln early Sunday morning.

Police say she was walking alone in Oak Lake Park around three in the morning when a man approached her and asked if she was all right.  When she said she was fine, police say the man grabbed her arm and pushed her to the ground.

Authorities say the man got on top of her and started pulling and ripping at her clothes. “The victim resisted. She continued to kick him until she was able to get away. She ran through the park and continued to the police station where she reported the incident,” According to officer Katie Flood. …More at Attempted rape at Lincoln park – KLKN

Although this video shows a model and brand of Pepper Spray Gun that we do not sell I still want you to check it out. My goal here is to ensure people are able to defend themselves, would I prefer you bought my model? Of course, I am trying to keep the lights on but my main concern is helping people. Just be sure you are aware of the pepper spray gun laws in your area so you don't get yourself into trouble with the police.

The Mace Pepper Spray Gun pink model is just one of the 4 great colors that this weapon is available in. It can shoot up to 25 feet so that really helps because the further away you can keep an attacker the better. Should you not see him/them coming it will still work up close just like any other pepper spray.

Often if you wear the Pepper Spray Gun holster, just the mere sight of it will keep away many criminal types as they are unable to tell from a distance exactly what is in the holster. It is easier for them to just find another, weaker appearing victim to attack. They are cowards and most aren't looking for a fight.

Murdered jogger was pregnant

31-year old Sarah Hart was murdered last week while out jogging with her sister by 28-year old Christopher Allman according to police.

It seems that the two women were jogging when Sarah began to feel ill. She decided to go back to the car and told her sister to keep going. By the time the sister returned to the car Sarah was no where to be found.

Eventually her body was found and she and her fetus were both dead. Truly a tragic loss for her husband and children and I am sure she will be greatly missed.

It appears that both women knew of Allman in passing and would see him walking to work as they went on their jogs and are said to have occasionally chit chatted with him.

As of yet no motive has been given for this guy although he has admitted to the crime. He is being charged with murder, kidnapping, robbery and tampering with evidence in this tragic event.

I hope they fry this freak considering he murdered two people that day and stole the mom from her kids.

This story should serve as a wake up call for all women out there. I guarantee Sarah thought she was safe walking back to the car by herself and sadly that is the case with most victims of crime.

The reason to jog with someone is for the improved safety in numbers but that only holds true if you stay together. Also anyone into outdoor life needs to think of their safety and utilize the tons of inexpensive things you can use to up your safety level.

A Pepper Spray for joggers created by Mace is perfect for exercising outdoors and for less than 20 bucks it can help to save your life while not infringing on your fun so it is a no-brainer choice.

RIP Sarah.

Stay safe out there!

Woman attacked at the Smoky Mountain National Park

Last weekend a 44 year old woman was sexually assaulted and stabbed during the attack. All of this took place in the massive and heavily utilized Great Smoky Mountain National Park.

It appears that she was hiking alone on one of the trails when she was attacked by a man who looks a lot like Michael Douglas’ character in Falling down but with a mustache.

She managed to make it out to the road and flagged down a passing motorist and was then airlifted to the hospital and then released over the weekend.

You can see a picture of the suspect on the new site here

I am glad it seems like the victim will be okay although I am sure she will have some emotional scars from this vicious attack.

People think it can never happen to them. “It’s safe”. Sadly though as this shows, it does happen. With a little precaution you can lower your odds of failing prey to this type of attack.

* Never walk, jog, run or hike alone. No place is safe and you need to have someone there with you in case of the unexpected.
* Carry a self defense weapon like a Pepper Spay for walkers or in case of hiking get a Bear Pepper Spray Repellent which will work on both bears and humans. This way you’re covered from attack from both types of animal.
* Pay attention to who and what is around you. Many instances can be avoided by paying attention to your surroundings making you look like a bad target.

No matter how safe an area you think you are at, you still need to be aware and smart to help ensure you don’t fall victim. Don’t be paranoid, just cautious and smart.

Stay safe out there!

Lowlife Punk punches woman in wheelchair in the face

Of all people to pick on this scumbag, 29 year old Nicholas Velasquez, decided to show he was tough guy by attacking a 69 year old little woman in a wheelchair.

She was waiting for a bus when this thing walked up and just punched her right in the face giving her a black eye. After punching her in the face he then said “I hate white people” as he walked off.

Thankfully the cops got him not far from the scene of the attack and he is being charged with elderly abuse and hate crimes.

I hope they hang this piece of crap by the balls. This is without a doubt one of the most cowardly things I have heard. He didn’t do this because he wanted to rob her, nope, he just attacked her because of her skin color but instead of picking on a white man near his own age he decided to show how tough he was on a 69 year old woman in a wheelchair. Real brave.

Since he likes racial violence hopefully he’ll get some in prison from some of the hate groups that inundate the US prison system which he should be in for a long time.

Go get em boys!

Woman fights off attacker with Pepper Spray

In Bellevue Washington a 23 year old woman owes her life to her quick thinking, bravery and her Pepper Spray. Had she not had all three things going for her than the attacker that occurred Friday night could have ended much differently.

It was about 11:30pm and the young woman exited the bus at her stop when a man got off the bus as well and began following her.

The attacker then grabbed her from behind and tried to drag her off the road but she was fighting him. Well done BTW! He got mad and punched her in the face a few times but she managed to get to her Pepper Spray and gave him a blast.

He took off running and although she was injured, she still won that run in. I wouldn’t say to fight if they want your purse because things aren’t worth your life but when it comes to your person, fight!

I am glad that she, or someone that cares about her, had the foresight to purchase her a Pepper Spray which was vital in this attack.

A Stun gun would have been helpful as well but one self defense weapon is better than none when it comes down to it. A witness at the scene summed it all up when they said “At least she had pepper spray. Normal people, we don’t usually carry that, though. That’s very scary.”

I have to agree for less than 20 bucks you can help yourself or someone you love have that edge they need to stay safe in an attack and not to do that, well it is scary.
