This thread brings up an interesting point of how effective diversion tactics can be.

I think it is not enough to just be aware of your surroundings sometimes, you also need to be aware of the possible motivations of the people in those surroundings.

[QUOTE]Originally posted by Slayr:
Joel, I find that striking up conversation first can help throw off their focus the same way that yours was cut off. Ask them a random off-the-wall question like the one that stumped you. This makes their mind wonder (You may remember some examples from class before that I use). Also, don't stop and talk, continue walking like you have somewhere to be and are late. Sometimes if you are uncomfortable, role-playing can help as well. Act like someone just called you on your cellphone or something like that which would supposedly get someone else involved, thus decreasing the likelihood of attack. I have been known to act like I'v gotta pee really bad or if someone is about to ask me for money, I ask them for it first. I know, I'm a big jerk but most people already know that.[/QUOTE]

I like the "I gotta pee" routine, I'm just crazy enough to pull that off. All of that's good stuff, I'll have to remember it.

I think this was a good wake-up call for me. I think now in the future I will be more aware of this tactic and not be as vulnerable.
Constant vigilance my friends, constant vigilance. Thank you all for sharing and not making me feel like an idiot.

Joel

PS-Matt, can I have your radio?
