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.”


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.

  1. My brother is a Salt Lake City police officer in Utah. SWAT team at one time. 16 plus years. You wouldn’t believe the things that go on even inside the police department. It’s important to keep your cardio level up. Some strength training 20 to 30 minutes everyday. 20 to 30 minutes cardio. And 20 to 30 minutes with weapons and or hand-to-hand Close Quarters combat. And don’t forget weapons of opportunity. I’ve been in prison myself. And I’m reformed and I am now a contractor. So you can pretty much say I’ve seen it all. I’ve gone up against the gangsters. And the murderers. I’ve woke up in the hospital and could barely recognize myself in the mirror. You’re so right. Criminals going around everyday picking their Mark’s and targeting civilians all the time. It’s their trade. And most of them are addicted to hardcore narcotics. And are basically just out of their mind. They have no respect for themselves or others. Practice practice practice. The 3DS desire determination and dedication. My mom went on a small trip last year to California and ended up right in the middle of a hotel robbery at gunpoint. So what I’m saying. Is really a lot of people are naive as to what’s really going on around them even in small towns. It’s important to have training. And you can go out there and get it. Learn The Art of War. That is the true martial art. Pray that something like that never happens to you but if you find yourself there be prepared. I could go on but that pretty much sums it up.

  2. Unlike all or moat other teenagers,I am not naive,I have been there,seen it,done that,I live in a very peaceful village in the English countryside,but even then I am always very aware of my surroundings,these people do exist,I grew up around violence and drugs and all sorts ,and have experienced all sorts of abuse at an early age,the sort of abuse that would have killed any normal seven-year old,I have been stabbed,threatened and strangled at that age as well,so for you teenagers,(and adults) who perceive the world to be a place full of health and safety executives and lovely mummy’s and daddy’s,don’t be fooled,don’t be too overconfident ,LIFE IS NOT a fairytale and these people have most likely dealt with plenty of youngsters/young adults before,you are not a top dog,you are in fact,your average normal person/chav off of the street,I know I sound cruel,but with life experience comes discipline and wisdom.i have seen many teenagers these days and they in fact fight like feral dogs,it’s disgraceful ,which is why I am glad these sort of websites exist,so don’t let Bobs work go to waste! Use your skills carefully,not pointlessly,should a criminal threaten you with a gun,you need to ANALYSE the situation and depending on your body type is what depends on what you do,everything is not the same,whether you like it or not women have a huge advantage over men when it comes to hand-to-hand as their hips and flexible body allow for more elegant,free movements,speed + accuracy potentially equals power,power and big muscles are the last thing you want to worry about in a fight ,sure they are nice but unless you have the stamina to use them for a long time then they mean nothing ,to put it simply ,you are done for,and DO NOT assume that the bigger you are the slower you are,that is so naive,I weigh 15 stone and none of my family or friends can hear any of my footsteps ,big,silent,strong and deadly,and I am also 6’1 ,so no,speed does not depend on size I am also broad.if you are muscular ,muscle is twice as dense as fat so you must allow for this when moving ,if your footwork is too wobbly your opponent may push you into s corner and could take advantage of your mistake,how you develop techniques is up to you and your body type,Bob just supplies you with the foundation of the house,you need to build the rest,as I will do here,remember to not take this risk with an armed criminal unless YOU ABSOLUTELY HAVE TO,this is very risky and dangerous,if you are facing the criminal ,and the criminal is threatening you with a handgun,depending on your distance ,I want you to ROLL INTO him,yes that’s right,running away only gives him/her the advantage.timing and speed is everything for this,quickly grab hold of his arm and press down on his wrist,this WILL force him to let go of the gun,grab it and them point it at him,kill him only if necessary,as for other ways,I will let bob take care of the rest,this is his business after all

  3. I never let my guard down,I am disabled and know that makes me a target. I try and always look around and be aware of what is around me. Thanks to your company I have some help that I can carry with me on my walker and on my person in case I need it. Thank you all so much for all your information and products. I wish I could afford more. Keep up the good work and Bless you all.

  4. In today’s world self defense is becoming more and important and those of us who are well trained,, even though we are in our later years, know how to disable and defeat. I hope it never happens but at 74 yrs I still feel confident in my abilities. Number one defense is a good offense–the first attack must come from the supposed victim.

  5. I thoroughly believe in evil(bad) people.
    I do not believe in luck or unlucky.
    right time and place for sure.
    also know what ever my skill level there is Always someone better, I’ve proven accounts when growing up on the chi town streets going up against 2,3 or more.
    the one on one days are long gone.
    I may be up in years but know and remember everything taught me.
    various arts and skills I feel fortunate to not be pushing up daisies due to encounters in the past.that said I believe I can assertain almost any situation and know in my heart of hearts how to handle it, naturally there will be some I don’t.
    Every situation is not necessarily unique.
    I personally treat every altercation if it comes up as dealing with someone who knows what they’re doing,then and only then if it’s warranted will those souls find out I also have a firm grip on what I am doing and how to do it.NEVER take anything for granted. I am normally a nice guy but if push comes to shove I can make life miserable and painful.in the event the law needs to intervene, I can and would secure the situation until they arrive but if there is no authority coming I can wrap it up and leave whomever in the gutter if needed NOT necessarily dead but they might wish they were.
    Additionally I have an uncanny ability to know or feel when something is not right.
    One of the first things learned was Expect the unexpected which I do. I have a reputation, those that know me know it, those I’ll willed that don’t oh well they will find out. Good blog, great videos Thanks!
    it’s good to be reminded of things now and then.

  8. In resent years my body has been slowed down due to a work injury. Im 67 years old and over 6 ft tall @ 225 lbs. Self defence
    Has become an issue with regard to my loss of muscle and redistribution of weight above the belt line. Im a walking target for crooks. I appreciate your blogs and when l can afford it I get reading materal. Simple but effective is the only defence methods I can consider. Thanks for the info.

  9. Bill Andrews: Take some time and check out an Organization called the United States Concealed Carry Association, that provides Legal Defense Counsel for all of its members, who are forced to use their firearm to protect their life, or their family’s lives. All Lawyers are strong Second Amendment, and Self Defense Attorneys. It’s worth the time, and money to purchase this type of Insurance.

  10. To Alvin Decker: When guns are outlawed, you will suddenly become a member of the largest outlaw group in the world, the American gun owner, which numbers about 100 million people. No Army in the world tops that number.
