Robberies "Spike" on Metro

We have been writing about it here and other security consultants have been talking about it….crime rises as the economy worsens

In Tuesday’s “Washington Post”, Lena H. Sun writes that robberies in the Metro Transit system are set to jump 24% by the end of the year.

That is the bad news. The good news is that people can do some thing about it. Apparently, opportunistic thieves are preying on people who are not paying attention to their surroundings.

Moral of the story – if you walk around with your head burried in your Blackberry or if you are moving like a robot from texting as you walk, you are going to be an easy target. Like we have said in the past – HARDEN THE TARGET.

Know where you are headed and be determined to get there without being robbed. There are wolves out there always ready to pounce on poor, unsuspecting sheep. Don’t become a victim.
