Guarding against Robbery and Assault
Tip 1: If you are involved in a heated argument that appears to be turning violent, walk away. If you fight “to prove something,” you will only demonstrate poor judgment.
Tip 2: Never carry a firearm, knife, or other illegal weapon. A weapon can escalate the situation and be used to harm innocent people or yourself.
