This off duty cop handled his business, though it cost him dearly!

What does this off duty cop teach us about protecting ourselves during a carjacking?
Situational awareness is your best friend. It doesn’t mean that you always are paranoid or living in “condition orange,” but it does mean that you know Col. Cooper’s color code of awareness and you live by it. Pay attention to your surroundings, and recognize that when you’re in public places you need to be more aware of your surroundings than when you’re in private. –Active Self Protection
