Bad News – Most Criminals Get Away With It

Polite society likes to ignore some simple facts associated with crime.

Take this one for example: We are raised hearing the mantra that “crime doesn’t pay.”

Wrong.

Crime does pay. It pays pretty well too. Some might say it’s one of the best kept secret in personal finance.

Except it’s not a secret. It’s just a fact that makes a lot of folks uncomfortable, so they pretend it’s not true.

So what’s my point? Well, I’m not suggesting you quit your day job and go knock off a liquor store.

Here’s the real lesson, if every criminal got caught the first or even second time he committed a crime we would very quickly have them all locked up!

The reality is, only the bad or unlucky criminals get caught and locked up. And many of those that do get locked up use prison as a place to hone their skills. Once they’re back on the street, they are even more skilled.

That means that if you are targeted by a criminal you must assume you’re going up against a pro.

You are more than likely NOT his or her first victim. He has a plan. He knows how to get what he wants. How even knows how to get away with it.

He’s also used to winning. Most people shrink when faced down with a hardened criminal, or any criminal for that matter. They give him what he wants. Criminals thrive off the fear of violence. Violence is their business and they know it pretty well.

If you are reading this you probably know this already, but it’s easy even for those of us that aren’t naïve about crime to get lulled into a false sense of security.

The completely naïve think that they are pretty much safe all the time.

Others think that because they are aware of crime and have thought about what they would do (maybe they even carry a self-defense weapon) that they are prepared. I’m not here to pass judgement on anyone. But there is a fine line between confidence, and a dangerous level of over-confidence.

Remember, many criminals are very good at what they do. You need to train to survive a confrontation with a pro, not a beginner. You have to train to beat the best. So take your defensive training seriously.

If you carry a weapon, when was the last time you trained drawing and deploying it? Weapon or not, when was the last time you threw a few punches? Do you know how to transition from a weapon to bare hands in case of a malfunction (for firearms) or loss of control of an edged or blunt force weapon?

Even masters have to go through the motions to keep their skills sharp. So set aside some time each week to practice. Keep your skills sharp, because when it hits the fan you may be up against a rookie with big talk, or you may be up against a seasoned pro. You definitely do NOT want to find out the hard way.
