HEAD ON A SWIVEL

HOW KEEPING AWARE OF YOUR SURROUNDINGS COULD SAVE YOUR LIFE

It isn’t that people aren’t concerned with their own safety, they are, but it is a matter of thinking that nothing bad will ever happen to you. It is being complacent in your environment, comfortable in your surroundings and confident that crime only happens in “bad neighborhoods.” Criminals, like lions on the hunt, pick out the weak animal in the herd, the one not likely to fight back.
