You know it makes sense.

A information sheet to mark National ‘Crime Prevention Day of Action’ (that’s Today!) focusing on personal safety, security advice and your ‘vulnerability’.

      I just wish they had the guts to mention drink. If you’re walking alone after only one or two, your vulnerability is increased.

        No, it’s out-of-control binge drinking that’s the problem, a completely unbiased alcohol awareness campaign warned me all about it.

      2. ReproBertie

        There is a second PDF being emailed around with the Streetwise one (it just arrived in my inbox) which states that “Late night intoxication is a factor in 12% of thefts from person, 19% of robberies and 18% of assaults.”

      1. ReproBertie

        Hardly. I’m usually the first to dismiss fear-mongering victim blaming disguised as good advice but this is not the case here. It’s really just a call to be aware of yourself and your surroundings which is often enough to deter opportunistic scumbags from trying to snatch your phone, for example.

      Despite the “March 2015” in the bottom right corner, we’ve been getting that same .pdf (along with the rest in the series) sent around work every year for as far back as I can remember. Probably going back to a time when “streetwise” was a thing.

    The world would be a much better place if everyone was afraid all of the time and everyone assumed that everyone else was planning to hurt them. Just like in the U.S.

    assume the victim position while the coppers sit their fat assess in the office, looking up that cute chick they are harassing on Pulse, cushy as.

    They should issue a leaflet on “Top Tips on How to Protect Yourself From Garda Abuse of Power”
