Strangers are Danger

Do not engage in conversations with street vendors, pan handlers, or anyone approaching you.


Remember, they have to get close, to rob or assault you. Distance is your friend.


Put your hand up in a stopping motion and say, “Get back, sorry not today, no thank you or my favorite no autographs please."


If “No Thanks” did not work, shift immediately to forceful commands. “Leave me/us alone. Now!” By this time you should already have your support hand up and out delivering the palm open “Universal Stop Sign”.


If an encounter looks eminent, formulate a plan. Look for cover and multiple exits immediately.  Decide what you will say, what you will do, and where you will go.
