Yes, John, lessons learned:
1. Always be aware in transitional spaces.
2. Always have a plan.
3. NEVER, ever, go to Houston.

Men Going God's Way says:

I would have run over bike guy.

G R says:

If I was sitting in the red SUV that guy would have become my new hood ornament!

Alexi Nugent says:

Place Called USA says:

Never paranoid. Just situationally aware. These daily reminders of just how fast things can go sideways really help keep me alert on the job and off duty. Thank you.

Steven Fuerst says:

I would have ran the guy on the bike over. Jail time or not. No one is pointing a gun at my family and biking away.

Ejiroghene Okotie says:

Just a lot of careless and clueless people

J Chan says:

So many clueless people. It's so frustrating.

Trust me. I operate a small business and sell my products at farmers markets. I have a cash till and take CC payments. I'm fully aware of my surroundings, especially when breaking down the booth and exiting the event. Even taking mental notes of (in my mind) suspicious customers during the event. Those that linger, ask stupid questions, wandering eyes. Watching other vehicles, people, checking mirrors, etc has become the norm when leaving. Not paranoid BUT aware, John.

RG says:

I would of ran that fool over on the bike. Not kill em but def smack em off lol.

Robert Dietrich says:

"Aware, not paranoid." Great advice. You have to pay attention to your surroundings. In the second and third videos, there were clear indicators of coming trouble that should have set off the spider-sense in the victims. In the first and the last video, all I can say is don't carry large amounts of cash (or any amount of cash for that matter) in hand-held envelopes, wallets, bags, or other obvious targets of theft. Don't count your money at the ATM. Do your business, leave, and count your money when you get to a safe place. If there's a discrepancy, report it to the bank then. Also in the last video, watch your mirrors. Unless you're being followed by a professional, it's pretty easy to pick up a tail (yes, I've been followed a few times). When you do pick up a tail, call the police and drive to a police station, substation, or if they're available to a place where they will meet you as directed by dispatch. Also, change up your routine. Take different routes to get home and learn the back streets.

I would’ve ran that dude in the white hoodie for sure. Right off camera.
Media: poor black man ran down in vehicle
Me: 😏

dm1927 says:

Amaze how people don't pay attention to there surroundings.

Greg Wagner says:
