I was doing some articles on situational awareness and ran across this article. It is very good and goes a ways in explaining crime and who does it. As many know a self defense weapon is something that I always suggest we carry to help stop a physical attack on us. Legal weapons are hard to come by and we all struggle to have them. It turns out it's all about where we are in the world but I can say the defenders do seem to go everywhere. So, this article helps to explain why bad things happen to us. Self defense weapons are obviously of great interest to all of us but this article sets the stage for the mind set.
