In the last two week there has been two incidents where students have been robbed. A guy approached both subjects and demanded money. Since guns and such are a no no on campus what is the best form of self protection? Both of these robberies have taken place after 11pm but it's not uncommon for me to be leaving the gym after 11pm and head back to my apartment. The robbery that occured last night happened on the block my apartment is on.

Best idea, would be not to walk alone, if you are out later at night. Try to find a fellow student that lives in the same area. Safety in numbers.

Also check this out Kimber Life Act

I would shy away form a carrying and edged weapon for self-defense unless you take an edged weapon defense course.

OC Spray maybe?

I'd keep OC, a tac-light so you could blind the guy and run, maybe a knife I'm not sure what their policy is on that in NY and/or your school though. And always have your cellphone on you. Of course, if the badguy has a gun because he doesn't care about the "gun free zone" you're pretty much boned. But that's the price you gotta pay for being an "enlightened" society that values false sense of safety over human life, dignity and property.

I don't know about NY, either, but in NJ you have a duty to retreat if at all possible, otherwise you're criminally-liable for any action taken against an assailant. So if you were outdoors in NJ, and stood your ground and fought, rather than giving the assailant what they wanted, you'd probably be charged with assault for not handing over your money then turning tail and running.

Rich,

You need to get keyed in with Fry this weekend. Carbines are great fun, but practical self-defense should be everyones focus. Fry offers a mix of unarmed and armed options, and he also offers a tremendous body of material called "managing unknown contacts."

I can't carry at work, but I always have a number of other options such edged weapons and a Surefire for lowlight walks handy. The most important weapon is your brain. Keep your eyes up, open and moving. Leave the cell phone and Ipod OFF.

SP10 is spot on. Get into a few of Fry's workshops. Also keep your head on a 380 degree swivel, being aware of your surroundings will go a long way in keeping you safe. Additionally think & look like a predator, not prey.

Security Alert for Sept. 26

On Tuesday, Sept. 25, at approximately 1:40 a.m, a student from Onondaga Community College was approached by an unknown male on the 1000 block of E. Adams Street. The student reported that the male called out to the student as he approached. Once close to the student, he demanded money, which the victim gave him. The suspect then fled on a dark‑colored mountain bike he retrieved from the intersection of E. Adams Street and South Crouse Avenue. He headed west on E. Adams Street. The victim did not sustain any injuries nor was any weapon displayed. The suspect is described as a black male in his 30s, 6‑foot‑2 with muscular build, weighing approximately 180 to 190 pounds. He had freckles on his cheeks and was bald. The suspect was last seen wearing a purple or pink shirt and blue jeans. If anyone has information regarding this incident, please contact the Syracuse Police Department at 442‑5222.

For your safety:

• travel in well‑lighted areas
• walk in groups of three or more and keep away from bushes, cars and other objects a suspect could hide behind
• be alert, walking with headphones can create tunnel vision

For a flashlight I'd recommend the SureFire E2D Defender with the crenellated ends (Thanks, Chris). Also great for emergencies, get an extra lamp and battery carrier and throw it in the backpack or briefcase.

Blind'em (strobe'm w/60 lumens), whack'em , and get outta Dodge.

So TRUE Pyrodox. Remember, "NO WEAPON WAS SEEN". If you use a weapon, to hurt someone, and there was no concrete evidence that the assailant intended, nor had the ability to due great bodily harm, the courts will burn you. I seen a surefire defender afew replys back, be careful with such a device, as it WILL get you into trouble.

What readers forget in these forums, is that the weapon(s) used to injure someone else will always be used as evidence in the courts. This evidence, as seen by the jury will create an image to the jurers, either positive or negative, and such a weapon as this 'Surefire' that has only one purpose (to create severe damage), will be seen as a BIG negative, and will discredit you. This is the same as some defensive knifes that are being marketed today.

BE CAREFUL people,,
Link Posted: 9/26/2007 2:38:14 PM EST
Ron, are you going to wait until some scumbag gets up to you and pulls a knife or a pipe on you before you escalate to his level? Are you willing to take that chance? You will find yourself FAR behind the 8 ball with that reactive mindset.

Some trainers paralyze their students with fear that if they actually defend themsleves, they are going to be at the mercy of the system. Is it a concern? Absolutely.

There are some excellent techniques to emply to hopefully prevent escalation and need for a weapon, but unless you have that training exposed to you, you won't be aware of it to the degree needed. A little aggressive preemption, especially including verbal commands to STOP isn't a bad thing. If the person doesn't stop, and is continuing towards you in an agressive/unusual manner, then prepare for action if you must or simply run away if you can. Yes, NY has a retreat clause OUTSIDE of your premises. Love those politicians who approved these laws.

Maybe a review of the justifiable use of force, Article 35, is needed here. I'm betting most folks haven't seen this.

ypdcrime.com/penal.law/article35.htm

Look over S35.15 especially.

Link Posted: 9/26/2007 5:57:55 PM EST
Hi SP10,

Not at all, If I feel the threat is real, and the ability and opportunity exsists for the perp to do me harm, that so be it, However, alittle smarts, and 12 years with the courts have taught me alot as well.

A surefire, with ridges, designed for destruction, compared to, say, a surefire 6P, both will do the job, however, one won't look as minicing in court as the other. Today, too may instructors tell their students to buy the latest and greatest, and simply ignore the basics, and, with this mind set, the student walks away with a false since of security.

It's like a rape prevention class, that teaches the women to carry mace. WOW, she walks away, feeling this incredible power of confidence, that, should she need it, that she has this can of woop-ass in her purse. But,, how many instructors actually have her spray someone, if just a simple dummy, yet alone, how many instructors tell them that she has a 50/50 chance on the mace being used against her, or the back spray of the airisol comming back to her, or the mere fact, that mace is illegal and what she is actually carrying is a watered down product that is called pepper spray, and has a less than 10 percent chance on dropping someone.

All I'm saying, is nothing beats training, and the most important aspect of any self defense is AWARENESS. A flashlight makes a fantastic weapon, but so does a heavy ink pen,Kuboton or just about anything you have in your hands or pocket. But your brain is your best weapon. Use it, and use it well.

Be Safe,,

You need to talk to your personal attorney for a complete understanding of the use of DPF in NYS.

SPD has a pretty good guide on the use of force in NYS.

http://www.co.suffolk.ny.us/police/forms/pistolhandbook.pdf

S 35.15 Justification; use of physical force in defense of a person.

1. A person may, subject to the provisions of subdivision two, use
physical force upon another person when and to the extent he reasonably
believes such to be necessary to defend himself or a third person from
what he reasonably believes to be the use or imminent use of unlawful
physical force by such other person, unless:
(a) The latter`s conduct was provoked by the actor himself with intent
to cause physical injury to another person; or
(b) The actor was the initial aggressor; except that in such case his
use of physical force is nevertheless justifiable if he has withdrawn
from the encounter and effectively communicated such withdrawal to such
other person but the latter persists in continuing the incident by the
use or threatened imminent use of unlawful physical force; or
(c) The physical force involved is the product of a combat by
agreement not specifically authorized by law.

2. A person may not use deadly physical force upon another person
under circumstances specified in subdivision one unless:
(a) He reasonably believes that such other person is using or about to
use deadly physical force. Even in such case, however, the actor may not
use deadly physical force if he knows that he can with complete safety
as to himself and others avoid the necessity of so doing by retreating;
except that he is under no duty to retreat if he is:
(i) in his dwelling and not the initial aggressor; or
(ii) a police officer or peace officer or a person assisting a police
officer or a peace officer at the latter`s direction, acting pursuant to
section 35.30; or
(b) He reasonably believes that such other person is committing or
attempting to commit a kidnapping, forcible rape, forcible sodomy or
robbery; or
(c) He reasonably believes that such other person is committing or
attempting to commit a burglary, and the circumstances are such that the
use of deadly physical force is authorized by subdivision three of
section 35.20.

Is she mentally prepared to instantly react and take someones life in a pretty brutal manner? Is she prepared to learn and practice the required skills to effectively defend herself with a knife? Unless she can answer yes to those two questions she is probably better off with a self-dense spray and some basic unarmed self defense tactics. The last thing you want is to arm an attacker with your own weapon.

rkbar15 is correct that it all begins with mindset but there are ways to impress upon a person (male or female) just how important your life is and the necessity to do terrible things to someone else in order to defend oneself. There are two types of people in this world predators and prey.

What I have a problem with is the perpetual myth that I keep hearing over and over that the aggressor will take the light or the knife or the gun away from you and use it against you. Have any of you tried to get a spyderco delica out of another persons hand while they are still conscious? Its near impossible even if the person holding the knife isn't the most determined. Give a person the skills to stay conscious and stay on their feet and a quick knife lesson of X'ing and dotting and you have created a formidable opponent/defender- women or man.

Since the time we started using tools man has scocialized women and conditioned them to think they are inferior to us. Fathers and brothers tell daughters and sisters that they shouldnt carry a gun because your male attacker will take it away and kill you with it. What else are they to believe? Someone hears something enough times and they start to believe it.

That's because the regulations regarding the NY defense spray aren't in the PL. You can't legally purchase OC spray from an out of state source and possess it in NYS. You can only legally purchase NY OC compliant defense spray in NY from a licensed pharmacist or NY licensed gun dealer.

Another incident:

ROBBERY



Two students reported that while on the 100 block of Marshall Street on Saturday, Sept. 29, at 3:35 a.m., they were approached a group of 6-8 unknown males. One of the unknown males put his arm around one of the students and asked him if he wanted any drugs. The unknown male then asked the student to see how much money he had in his wallet. The student responded by saying that he did not have any money and pulled his wallet out to show the unknown male. The unknown male then grabbed the student's wallet, pushed him away and punched him in the eye. The second student was told by another unknown male to hand over his wallet or the same thing would happen to him. The suspect then took the student's wallet out of his pocket, took the money out and handed the wallet back to the student.



In a separate but related incident, two other students reported that while walking on the 100 block of Marshall Street, they were approached in the same manner as the previous two students.



The suspects left the scene in two separate vehicles. One vehicle was described as a silver colored, 4-door sedan, and the second vehicle was described as a tan colored mini-van.



The victims described the suspects as:



#1: male, black, early 20s, 5'10" to 6'0" tall, heavy set



#2: male, white, early 20s, short, stocky build, with a shaved head, last seen wearing a white or light grey hooded sweatshirt



There are no descriptions available of the remaining suspects.

Call the 800 #. i"m sure they will be able to tell you what you need to do in order to sell self dense sprays in NY. You could also call one the pharmacies listed on their website. Just plug in your zip code on the web page.

7 %. You are limited to a few brands such as Mace with its 5.5 %, which is what I use. Really though, the 5.5 % works just fine. I got a snoutful of it last month and it was painful enough to make me want to leave the house and seek decontamination. The longer stuff only means a longer decon time.

According to NYS PC, Self Defense Spray is defined and legal for carry for people over the age of 18. Here are the PC sections:

2) PL 270.05 makes poss/sale mace/pepper spray a b misd and then 270.05 (5) exempts self-defense sprays poss by person 18 or older; see also 265.20 (14) for definition of "self defense spray device"

I will post the complete section 270.05 when I get out of class.
