Predators: Who They Are and How to Stop Them - Autographed Copy
Signed by Greg Cooper -
An inmate, incarcerated for the rape of seventy-five women, reveals in an interview that if his victims had simply put a pair of old construction boots at the front door, he would have passed by and never even considered them as potential targets. The grieving father of a murdered seventeen-year-old woman admits that he should have been more involved in his daughter's life and paid attention to the "friends" in her immediate circle. Most of us only half-listen to the public service announcements about safety in the home. We lock our doors at night, but do little else to change habits that may make us the next victims of the dangerous individuals who are always on the watch for their next opportunity.This book takes readers through the mindset of predatory criminals - their motives, various plans of attack, and way of thinking - and then teaches simple lifestyle techniques that will help reduce the risk of becoming victimized. Criminal behavior specialists Greg Cooper and Mike King provide expert analysis based on real-life cases, in addition to moving insights from victims and criminals themselves. The authors make the point that the people who commit these crimes aren't much different from the predators of the wild, preying on the weak and unsuspecting. What makes these individuals more dangerous than their instinctive wildlife counterparts, however, is that they consciously choose to inflict their will on the more vulnerable members of their own species. To protect our loved ones and ourselves requires that we truly educate ourselves about the predators who live in our society and then take appropriate action. This excellent, in-depth study will help readers lead safer lives.
Death Notifications: Delivering an Offensive Message in the Least Offensive Manner - Autographed
Signed by Dean L. Jackson
There is one job that no one in Law Enforcement or the Military wants to preform; Death Notifications. But the fact remains, it must be done. Imagine a world in which no one was ever informed of the death of a loved one. Instead, one day someone's wife, brother, son, or mother simply disappears. As traumatic as it is to hear the news that someone you love has died, it would be far worse to spend the rest of your life wondering what happened to them.
Dean L. Jackson has personally delivered this message more than 300 times over the course of his career. It's never easy for the messenger, but doing it the wrong way can make it a hell of a lot harder than it has to be.
This study edition provides space for the reader to make notes.
