That robber is huge! Would you have done something than these workers?
If you were a bystander in this convenience store robbery and the robber started attacking the clerk, would you step in? Thinking through your responses and how your Active Self Protection comes into play is an important part of protecting yourself from a robbery!
Since criminals are looking for victims and not fights, they tend to look for vulnerable people to target. This robbery certainly speaks to that! Think about a pride of lions chasing wildebeest in Africa and you get the picture. They target the elderly, the young, and the sick for easier attack and greater success. Likewise, robbers pick victims who they think will not effectively resist them, or that the criminal can quickly overwhelm. This includes the elderly, the young (kids and early teens), the sick, pregnant women, and the distracted. Men (the overwhelming majority of attackers) also target women because women tend to be physically weaker than men. If you’re in a vulnerable population take extra precaution and train to defend against a robbery! –Active Self Protection
