One More Reason NOT to use Uber

Uber driver drops passengers at airport, then tries to burglarize their home


I THANK GOD every day I live in a very rural area where Uber is not around.

I never liked the ideal when is started up and still don’t think it is a SAFE mode of travel. I mean how many times has Uber been in the news in the past few years for something like this?

Travel Security: Hotel Room Master Keys


Hackers built a ‘master key’ for millions of hotel                                                      rooms

Good information for you folks that travel a lot for business or even on that family vacation this summer. Be Aware of this security shortfall.

Whenever I travel and stay in Hotels, I use this door jamming device, of course it does not help when you are not in the room but the easy fix there is DO NOT leave valuables in your room.

Funny picture, but it shows the subtle and deceptive tradecraft of thieves all over the globe.

So often children are used in street scams like this to emotionally disarm and distract the tourist.

Don’t be emotionally disarmed and/or distracted by kids in the street while traveling, it can cost you more than a watch sometimes.

Some of these gangs like in Southeast Asia/Mexico and Central/South America use scams like this to draw people into kidnapping situations.

Analysis: Is it Lawful Self-Defense to “Run Down” Rioters Surrounding Your Vehicle?

A great topic to cover seeing how race riots may be visiting towns and cities across this Nation very soon.

Bottom line, if possible, get the incident on video. Cops, judges and juries LOVE video.

I had a friend who went through a similar situation a while back.

Drunk college kids were celebrating downtown after a Basketball game. The celebration turned into a full-scale looting riot and the Police were caught off-guard. My friend was just trying to get back home after going to the market to get pampers for his new baby. Several kids blocked the road and refused to move and then some started throwing beer bottles against his car. My friend started filming the whole thing with his cell phone. After a couple of minutes he started being in fear for his life when a larger crowd appeared and started rocking his car back and forth trying to tip it over.

At that moment, self-preservation kicked into high gear. He accelerated through the crowd blocking his path, running over a total of 4 to 5 people. Of course the idiots got his plate number and called the cops. My fiend in turn also filed charges.

Long story short, with a good lawyer armed with that cell phone footage, charges against my friend were dismissed by a judge. The judge said “That any reasonable person would do the same to protect their life when surrounded by inebriated hooligans…these idiots got off easy with JUST broken bones.”

From my friend’s cell phone video combined with Street CCTV, they were able to Prosecute around 15 people. They went after the four that were attacking my friend’s car with Felony Assault Charges and last I heard from my friend, they all got convicted.

My buddy’s lawyer later said that without the cell phone footage the case may not have went as well… but him recording it showed responsibility and rational thinking to the judge.

Food for thought gents.
