Did you know?
After looking at the 2013 Crime Clock Statistics (this is the latest full year reported at this time, from the Uniform Crime Report), what do you think? Do you wonder how many of those rapes, robberies or aggravated assaults could have been stopped if the victims had been wearing an ARMABAND? I do. Of course, it’s hard to say if Murder could be affected, but it could be, I guess.
An aggravated assault every 43.5 seconds? So basically, in the time it took me to write this post so far, there have been 3 or 4 aggravated assaults, a robbery and a half, and we are about 1/3 of the way through a rape. That is SCARY. Did you realize that it was so prevalent? And these are just the reported crimes – and it has been shown that personal violent crime is grossly under reported.
With Spring Break for the college kids quickly approaching (my daughter’s is next week), so many college students are escaping to warmer climates to enjoy some surf, sand and sun. Some are going skiing (brrrrr). We know that there are many, many reports of sexual assaults, aggravated assaults and simple assaults reported and UNreported on Spring Break. How many of those could be stopped not only by being responsible with the drinking, but by wearing an ARMABAND, for that added little bit of protection? These are the things I think about – and want to change. I want an ARMABAND on EVERY college student. Male and female. Every. Single. One. Why? Because there is no way to tell who will become a victim – no way to know who will be the preyed upon. So everyone should have one.
Help us spread the word on college campuses and let’s change the game – and the statistics.
Have a great weekend everyone!
