There are certainly already many blogs about security advice out there, so you might wonder why did I think the world would need another one? Well, I have spent now some 25+ years working in the security industry and counting, mostly protecting businesses, politicians, corporations. Whenever I was able to work with ordinary people, helping them to protect their homes or teaching them how to defend themselves and their loved ones, my work had a REAL MEANING! I felt that I was doing something good and useful and that made me feel good in return.
Do you need to protect yourself?
Despite all the progress of our modern society, the world we live in can at times still be a dangerous place! There are many threats and dangers to our lives, many of which most people are not even aware of. I’ve created rssecurity.tips to help with FREE professional security advice on the subjects of personal safety and home security. I might sound like an idealist, but I believe that a few good people can make a difference, so I am trying to be one of those. Even if what I do cannot change the world, if it only might help one person, it was absolutely worth the effort!
Should you be taking your safety in your own hands?
Although for me the answer to this question is very obvious, I am aware that some of you might actually be still in doubt. As a law obeying citizen, you are being taught to rely on law and justice provided by the government. Think about that just for a moment, the law is only being enforced AFTER a crime has already happened, correct? The reality is, that no government can afford to put a police officer in front of everyone’s house, to ensure that everyone is safe. Our justice system, like many others, is based on punishment with fines and serving time in prison. That should scare lawbreakers off and make crime less appealing to them.
Now do I really need to say how effective this system is in reality? Not only do many crimes not get solved ever, but even if the criminals get caught, very often they walk away unpunished. The jails are crowded and therefore for certain crimes they do not even get sentenced anymore.
