The Vancouver Police Department’s...

...message is simple...yikersI'm calling it the "Three Stooges meets Frankenstein Defence"... which, sadly, relies heavily on idiots, explosives & falling anvils...

STEP ONE:

"If this happens to you, run!"
STEP TWO:
"If running is not an option, hide."
STEP THREE:
"If you can’t hide, fight."
STEP FOUR:
"Attack to incapacitate."
Hey, don't be a party-pooper... John Wick apparently once killed three men with a pencil.

**********

FROM THE COMMENTS:
"Look around you. Can you make some sort of rudimentary lathe?"
Think outside the constabulary. Maybe uproot a sapling or a stop sign to use as a bludgeon, or maneuver your attackers under a piano being lifted by ropes into a nearby hi-rise...acme police advice
"The instructions are reinforced by a video released on Wednesday to teach the public how to react before first-responders are on scene."
The truth is... you've always been on your own. The VPD is just, (likely under pressure from their legal department), finally acknowledging that reality.

Just ask Jaiden Jackson.

old white guy says............always carry a lethal weapon with you no matter what some dimwitted cop says. Your chances of survival are better. Use whatever force is necessary to save yourself and make sure your attacker reaches room temperature as soon as possible.

what the police are admitting here
is that it's not possible for them
to actually protect the citizenry.

they usually arrive after the fact
and write reports about what occurred.
gawd forbid they run into a criminal
and have to take action.

as in most human interactions, you
alone are responsible for your own
well being.

...you construct a weapon. Look around you. Can you make some sort of rudimentary lathe? (With apologies to Galaxy Quest)

Vancouver, eh? It rains a lot there. Most people carry an umbrella. Sharp pointy end & you can break an arm or neck with the crook. Get a really, really good one. Sturdy. Use it like a bayonet. Older folks, take up a walking cane. You're old, so a target. Bring one along whether you need it or not. Really stuck? Wear a belt, use the buckle end. The pin could put an eye out & the buckle will do damage to a head. You carry keys with you, put a key between your knuckles & use it on the face. Jab the eyes, or slash a nose. Very effective.

Mace, pepper spray, even a knife or gun takes precious time to put into action. Best defense? Be situation aware at all times.

of course, once you use your
improvised weapon, the cops
will arrive just in time to
arrest you.

not saying don't do it... you
just better have a good lawyer
on speed dial.
