You’ve gotta know that these guys are likely to head someplace warm since it’s winter, and that they will do whatever it takes to survive. They’ve already robbed banks, and made a dramatic escape from that prison. That means that nobody is safe until they are caught.
I’ve already lost a relative due to this type of situation and just because you might live a thousand or two miles away, does NOT mean you are safe.
So, pay attention to your surroundings, don’t travel alone in your car if you can help it and if you do, make sure your doors are locked so someone can’t just jump in and hold you at gun point.
Plan as best you can in advance so that if you are car jacked, to smash into something HARD, fast and furious. You could get hurt doing so, you might even die, but chances are if you don’t do it, you will be killed anyway later when you aren’t needed any more.
They will be desperate for transportation, cash/credit cards, food, guns, places to sleep. Anybody in their path is a likely victim.
Get a good look at their pix, memorize them, and pay attention, be safe.
Don’t leave valuables inside your car.
Thanks for the good tips.
