"a raw truth is: When it comes to personal safety most people don't think about it until they have a need. This pressing need is usually combined with the lack of thousands of dollars to buy a high-tech security service, hire a lawyer or a bodyguard.
This site's for people with such a problem.
We will provide you free, easy-to-use information to keep you safe from crime and violence. Our goal is to give you common sense information you can use right now to ensure your personal safety and protect your property. This site isn't about marketing or making money off you, it's about giving you the information you need to keep safe.
Violence is real, so are the consequences. What we're going to do here is to help you handle both."
In addition to the state purpose the site is also an excellent resource for those writing about crime and violence. It is recommended by Barry Eisler as a key resource for his John Rain thrillers and has been very useful to me in my writing.
