This is a reminder that we all need to be "AWARE" of what's going on around us, especially when we're most vulnerable like delivering packages to a car or walking in public buried in our phone. An exercise I was given during training for my hand gun permit was mindfulness training. While in public,I practice surveilling everything within eyesight paying special attention to other people acting out of character and characterisctics of people around me. What are they wearing? What do the look like and can I describe them accurately. You never know when YOU could come to someone's aid!
Congratulation Alex on stopping another disgusting crime.
