Former CIA Officer Jason Hanson explains…
How to Protect Yourself from
Becoming a “Victim of the Dark”
A violent crime happens every 26.3 seconds, and MOST occur at night. Here’s the one thing you must know to avoid joining this statistic.
What Happened During
The Next Few Moments Would
Forever Change Her Life.
The man, fueled by meth and alcohol, took her to a dark corner of the cemetery and brutally assaulted her.
The last thing she remembered before blacking out was his hand grasping her throat while he whispered, “You’re going to die!”
Eventually, she woke up in the cemetery… barely alive.
But Because This Event Constantly Cycles In Her Mind.
Death Grips Her Every Single Day.
My Least Favorite
City In The World
My Instinct Kicked In
As I Now Considered
Him A Threat.
Always Watching And
Reacting To Everything
Simply keeping your eyes open, your head on a swivel, and reacting to even the slightest discomfort can keep you alive.
Now, if I’d been on my cell phone checking Facebook during our walk in Baltimore City…
Or dreaming about how our day would go…
Or simply not paying attention…
Who knows what could’ve happened.
Maybe even worse.
The last thing I wanted for me, my wife – or both – was to be a number in the violent statistics of Baltimore City.
Unfortunately, not everyone is so lucky…
Which leads me to the problem…
You Can’t Watch
What You Can’t See
You’d think so.
Yet so many people still put themselves in harm’s way, due to the simple fact they can’t see their surroundings.
When you can’t see your surroundings, you can’t react.
And when you can’t react… you could get seriously injured.
One minute you think you’re safe… then without warning, a situation can turn from safe to terrifying – turning you not only into a victim, but the top news story of the day.
For instance, three people were recently robbed at gunpoint just after midnight in a Baltimore County suburb…
They thought they were safe, but because they couldn’t see their surroundings they got robbed by two suspects lurking in the shadows.
What were they doing?
Playing Pokémon Go on their phones.
I know that sounds ridiculous, but the Baltimore County police spokesman said in a statement…
“The game itself is harmless. But what concerns us the most are the same things that concern us with texting… You don’t want to pay so much attention to the game, that you put yourself into a dangerous situation.”
The bottom line is, we all know criminals love to hide.
They duck down between cars… hide behind pillars and large trees… and wear dark clothes to blend into the night.
According to the Bureau of Justice’s National Crime Victimization Survey, 63.2% of rapes, and 71.7% of motor vehicle theft happen at night…
And 40% of all total rapes and assaults take place in parking garages where it’s typically dark during any hour of the day.
A few years ago, a woman was carjacked and murdered by a crazed man in a parking garage.
Nkosi Thandiwe said he walked up to the woman’s car as she sat completely unaware, told her to get out, then shot her in the back of the neck when she tried running.
When asked in court why he did it, he simply said, “I don’t know.”
As you can see, crimes committed in the dark are often a matter of life and death.
Which is why I highly recommend you not only do your best to stay in A.W.A.R.E. mode, but to also carry a simple item that can deter your predator…
Giving you enough time to get away… while helping save you from your worst nightmare.
What I’m referring to is a high-powered tactical flashlight.
Simple enough, right?
But not just any tactical flashlight…
You need one you can bet your life on… the one I trust for myself, my wife, and other members of my family.
After all, during my time in the CIA, I know what it’s like to have a flashlight in my hand, having to count on it time and time again.
And even though I’m no longer with the Agency…
The last thing I want to do is send my wife out, without the ability to see in the dark, putting her in harm’s way.
This is why I went to great lengths to team up with brilliant engineers to create what I call, “The World’s Toughest Flashlight.”
And no, that’s not some cute slogan made up by guys on Madison Avenue who’ve never been in the trenches with a flashlight.
The flashlight we created is called the SPYTAC X-6 and is designed for espionage and military special operations to operate in the harshest conditions on earth.
With the SPYTAC X-6, you can…
Identify threats in low-light situations, eliminating the advantage of an attacker stalking in the shadows. (Make them scurry like cockroaches on the kitchen floor.)
Hit your attacker with 600 lumens of light, square in the eyes… masking your position behind a wall of light while blinding and disorienting his brain. (Giving you time to escape to safety.)
Use the “flicker vertigo” effect. Hitting the strobe option can seriously impair your predator, with the possibility of nausea, dizziness, headache, and panic. (Making his recovery time greater.)
Mount it to your gun, so you can identify your target. The recoil resistant construction and 1-inch outer body diameter allows for weapon-mounting with standard 1” scope rings on calibers up to .50 Cal making the SPYTAC X-6 one of the most durable weapon mountable flashlights in history.
“Last week whilst taking my mother to France for Xmas (We are still here) she accidentally locked and padlocked her case with the keys inside. Anyway I had a go and remembering a video of yours I watched… I tensioned the lock, raked the pins and then jiggled them. "Snick". The lock came open. And my mother was VERY happy! Thank you for your help and for making my Mum, not only happy but a little bit proud of me too!” ~ Michael Robary, London, England
