In my first post on crime, I urged you to accept the reality of the criminal threat and to mentally choose not to allow yourself to be easily victimized. Hopefully you’re reading this second post because you’ve sworn off the denial, distraction, and passivity that characterizes most people and decided to do whatever you reasonably can to protect yourself, your family, and your home. If this mindset of yours is authentic and deeply felt, you’re more than halfway to your goal.
Your next step is to form a self-protection plan. Helping you do that is the purpose of this second post.
