Good information! 


Through a Rapist's Eyes (No Joke)


Please pass it along and share it with your children.

A group of rapists and date rapists in prison were interviewed on what they look for
in a potential victim and here are some interesting facts:

1) The first thing men look for in a potential victim is hairstyle.  They are most
likely to go after a woman with a ponytail, bun, braid or other hairstyle that can
easily be grabbed .  They are also likely to go after a woman with long hair . 
Women with short hair are not common targets.

2) The second thing men look for is clothing.  They will look for women who's
clothing is easy to remove quickly.  Many of them carry scissors around specifically
to cut clothing.

3) They also look for women on their cell phone, searching through their purse, or
doing other activities while walking because they are off-guard and can be easily

4) Men are most likely to attack & rape in the early morning, between 5: 00a.m. and

5) The number one place women are abducted from/attacked is grocery store parking
lots. The number two: office parking lots/garages.  Number three: public restrooms.

6) The thing about these men is that they are looking to grab a woman and quickly
move her to another location where they don't have to worry about getting caught.

7) Only 2% said they carried weapons because rape carries a 3-5 year sentence but
rape with a weapon is 15-20 years.

 If you put up any kind of a fight at all, they get discouraged because it only
takes a minute or two for them to realize that going after you isn't worth it
because it will be time-consuming.

9) These men said they would not pick on women who have umbrellas, or other similar
objects that can be used from a distance, in their hands

Keys are NOT a deterrent because you have to get really close to the attacker to use
them as a weapon.  So, the idea is to convince these guys you're not worth it.

10) Several defense mechanisms he taught us are: If someone is following behind you
on a street or in a garage or with you in an elevator or stairwell, look them in the
face and ask them a question, like what time is it?, or make general small talk: 'I
can't believe it is so cold out here,' 'We're in for a bad winter.'  Now you've seen
their face and could identify th em in a line-up; you lose appeal as a target.

11) If someone is coming toward you, hold out your hands in front of you and yell
STOP! or STAY BACK!  Most of the rapists this man talked to said they'd leave a
woman alone if she yelled or showed that she would not be afraid to fight back. 
Again, they are looking for an EASY target.

12) If you carry pepper spray (this instructor was a huge advocate of it and carries
it with him wherever he goes), yell I HAVE PEPPER SPRAY and holding it out will be a

13) If someone grabs you, you can't beat them with strength but you can by
outsmarting them.  If you are grabbed around the waist from behind, pinch the
attacker either under the Arm (between the elbow and armpit) OR in the upper inner
thigh VERY VERY HARD.  One woman in a class this guy taught told him she used the
underarm pinch on a guy who was trying to date rape her and was so upset she broke
through the skin and tore out muscle strands - the guy needed stitches.  Try
pinching yourself in those places as hard as you can stand it - it hurts.

14) After the initial hit, always GO for the GROIN.  I know from a particularly
unfortunate experience that if you slap a guy's parts it is extremely painful.  You
might think that you' ll anger the guy and make him want to hurt you more, but the
thing these rapists told our instructor is that they want a woman who will not cause
a lot of trouble.  Start causing trouble and he's out of there.

15) When the guy puts his hands up to you, grab his first two fingers and bend them
back as far as possible with as much pressure pushing down on them as possible.  The
instructor did it to me without using much pressure, and I ended up on my knees and
both knuckles cracked audibly.

16) Of course the things we always hear still apply.  Always be aware of your
surroundings, take someone with you if you can and if you see any odd behavior,
don't dismiss it, go with your instincts!!!

You may feel a little silly at the time, but you'd feel much worse if the guy really
was trouble.

1. Tip from Tae Kwon Do : The elbow is the strongest point on your body. If you are
close enough to use it, do!

2. Learned this from a tourist guide in New Orleans :  If a robber asks for your
wallet and/or purse, DO NOT HAND IT TO HIM. Toss it away from you....chances are
that he is more interested in your wallet and/or purse than you, and he will go for

3. If you are ever thrown into the trunk of a car, kick out the back tail lights and
stick your arm out the hole and start waving like crazy.  The driver won't see you,
but everybody else will. This has saved lives.

4. Women have a tendency to get into their cars after shopping, eating, working,
etc, and just sit (doing their checkbook, or making a list, etc.)  DON'T DO THIS! 
The predator will be watching you, and this is the perfect opportunity for him to
get in on the passenger side, put a gun to your head, and tell you where to go.  AS

a. If someone is in the car with a gun to your head DO NOT DRIVE OFF, repeat: DO NOT
DRIVE OFF! Instead gun the engine and speed into anything, wrecking the car.  Your
Air Bag will save you.  If the person is in the back seat they will get the worst of
it.  As soon as the car crashes bail out and run.  It is better than having them
your body in a remote location.

5 A few notes about getting into your car in a parking lot or parking garage:

A.) Be aware: look around you, look into your car, at the passenger side floor, and
in the back seat.

B.) If you are parked next to a big van, enter your car from the passenger door. 
Most serial killers attack their victims by pulling them into their vans while the
women are attempting to get into their cars.

C.) Look at the car parked on the driver's side of your vehicle, and the passenger
side. If a male is sitting alone in the seat nearest your car, you may want to walk
back into the mall, or work, and get a guard/policeman to walk you back out.

IT IS ALWAYS BETTER TO BE SAFE THAN SORRY. (And better paranoid than dead.)

6. ALWAYS take the elevator instead of the stairs. (Stairwells are horrible places
to be alone and the perfect crime spot. This is especially true at NIGHT!)

7. If the predator has a gun and you are not under his control, ALWAYS RUN! The
predator will only hit you (a running target) 4 in 100 times. And even then, it most
likely WILL NOT be a vital organ. RUN, preferably in a zigzag pattern!

8. As women, we are always trying to be sympathetic: STOP! It may get you raped or
killed. Ted Bundy, the serial killer, was a good-looking, well-educated man, who
ALWAYS played on the sympathies of unsuspecting women. He walked with a cane, or a
limp, and often asked 'for help' into his vehicle or with his vehicle, which is when
he abducted his next victim.

9. Another Safety Point: Someone just told me that her friend heard a crying baby on
her porch the night before last, and she called the police because it was late and
she thought it was weird. The police told her 'Whatever you do, DO NOT open the

The lady then said that it sounded like the baby had crawled near a window, and she
was worried that it would crawl to the street and get run over. The policeman said,
'We already have a unit on the way, whatever you do, DO NOT open the door.'  He told
her that they think a serial killer has a baby's cry recorded and uses it to coax
women out of their homes thinking that someone dropped off a baby.  He said they
have not verified it, but have had several calls by women saying that they hear
baby's cries outside their doors when they're home alone at night.

Please pass this on and DO NOT open the door for a crying baby -- - This should be
taken seriously because the Crying Baby theory was mentioned on America's Most
Wanted this past Saturday when they profiled the serial killer in Louisiana .

I'd like you to forward this to all the women you know.  It may save a life.  A
candle is not dimmed by lighting another candle.  I was going to send this to the
ladies only, but guys, if you love your mothers, wives, sisters, daughters, etc.,
you may want to pass it onto them, as well.
