If you don't have a gun, here's a more
humane way to wreck someone's evil plans for you.
Did you know this? I didn't. I never really thought of it before.
A friend who is a receptionist in a
church in a high risk area was concerned about someone coming into the
office on Monday to rob them when they were counting the collection.
She asked the local police department
about using pepper spray and they recommended to her that she get a can
of wasp spray instead.
The wasp spray, they told her, can
shoot up to twenty feet away and is a lot more accurate, while with the
pepper spray, they have to get too close to you and could overpower you.
The wasp spray temporarily blinds an attacker until they get to the
hospital for an antidote. She keeps a can on her desk in the office and
it doesn't attract attention from people like a can of pepper spray
would. She also keeps one nearby at home for home protection.
Thought this was interesting and might
be of use.
On the heels of a break-in and beating
that left an elderly woman in Toledo dead, self defense experts have a
tip that could save your life.
Val Glinka teaches self-defense to
students at Sylvania Southview High School . For decades, he's suggested
putting a can of wasp and hornet spray near your door or bed.
Glinka says, "This is better than
anything I can teach them."
Glinka considers it inexpensive, easy
to find, and more effective than mace or pepper spray. The cans
typically shoot 20 to 30 feet; so if someone tries to break into your
home, Glinka says "spray the culprit in the eyes". It's a tip he's given
to students for decades.
It's also one he wants everyone to
hear. If you're looking for protection, Glinka says look to the spray.
"That's going to give you a chance to
call the police; maybe get out." Maybe even save a life.
Please share this with all the people
in your life, especially those who are vulnerable or alone.
