Did you know that in the US a violent crime is committed every 19 seconds, one murder every 27 minutes. One forcible rape every 6 minutes. One robbery every 54 seconds. These none-too-encouraging numbers just go to show that you can't be too careful these days. That's why it is wise to look into purchasing personal safety products such as key chain alarms, personal alarms, and various self-defense devices such as pepper spray and Mace™. You never know who is making plans to make you a victim.
