Mace Hot Walkers Personal Protection for Female Joggers and Walkers

Wednesday, October 19th, 2011

This parent purchased Mace Hot Walkers as non lethal personal protection for his daughter living in St. Louis…

Bill always worried about his daughter, Josie.  She always had that independent streak growing up.  The past Thanksgiving, she announced to the family that she would be moving to the big city to work on her acting career.

When Josie’s sister wondered aloud if Josie would keep up her workout routine, Josie assured everyone that she’d still get her three mile walk in everyday by strolling through the park.  It didn’t take long for sparks to fly across the dinner table.

Bill resolved that he’d support his daughter, no matter what.  So at Christmas time, a few days before Josie planned to leave town, he picked up an extra gift.

“Josie,” he said, when he sat her down at the next family gathering, “I’m sorry if it sounded like I wasn’t behind you all the way the last time we all were together.”

“I know, Dad,” said Josie, “the city’s a lot different that this town, and you just want me to be safe.”

“That’s right,” Bill replied, “so when I heard about these, I thought they might help both of us feel a little better about your move.”

He explained how the Hot Walkers looked and felt just like a regular pair of aerobic hand weights, the kind people use to keep their hearts in good shape. This cleverly disguised pepper spray is an excellent way a woman can defend herself if attacked while walking, jogging or running on the St. Louis city urban bike trails.

“These weights keep you just in case,” Bill explained.  “Let’s say you run into someone who wants to hurt you.  Just press this button right here to blast them with pepper spray.  They won’t be able to do much of anything for a while, so you can run and get help.”

“I know you want to keep the same king of independence you’re used to out here in the country,” Bill paused, placing a hand on Josie’s knee.  “This lets you stay in control, and it’ll keep me and your sister from worrying about you on those walks.” Parents often wonder…is downtown St. Louis safe?

Josie hugged her dad, and settled in for warm celebration with the rest of her family.  This time, everyone knew she could handle living on her own in the big city. Downtown St. Louis living requires residents,visitors and tourist to be vigilant about always being aware of their surroundings. Hot Walkers are effective as an urban self defense  and urban street defense weapon.

Though the suburban population has ballooned to approximately 3 million, the frequently quoted population of St. Louis city is roughly 356,000.

Sadly, in the most dangerous city in America. Murders have become common on local television news channels. St. Louis residents can expect a murder to be reported every few days in the most dangerous city in America. The murder rate in St. Louis is about 4 times higher than the murder rate in New York.
