Ng was dishonorably discharged from the Marine Corps in 1980, for theft of heavy weaponry, and served only 2 years of a 14-year sentence, after which release, he met Leonard Lake, and the two began kidnapping, raping, barbarically torturing and murdering anywhere from 11 to 25 men, women and children. Every single body found on Lake’s property in 1985 showed signs of rape and torture, even infants. The two men filmed home videos of themselves committing these crimes, and the videos still exist as private property of the State of California, which will not release them to the public.
Among the reports from the courtroom, Ng and Lake filmed each other clubbing victims, male and female, adults and children, with homemade spiked bats, chaining them to tables and sawing their limbs off, raping them before and after, and forcing them to watch their family members receive such tortures. Lake took cyanide when captured. Ng fled to Calgary, Canada, where he was arrested and fought extradition back to the U. S. for 6 years, before losing, being tried and convicted of 12 counts of murder and multiple other charges, and being sentenced to death in 1998. The trial cost $4 million. Ng and his lawyers are still appealing all verdicts, regardless of the home videos he and Lake made, which were shown as evidence against him. The total cost for his legal proceedings has reached $20 million.

Habits That Help
Rape is a crime that occurs because of the offender’s predatory behavior, and you can never protect yourself one hundred percent from becoming a target. But every woman should make sure her day-to-day behavior isn’t putting her at a higher risk.
Since it’s often the consistency of a target’s habits that gives a determined predator his cues, try occasionally to vary the path you take to and from work (stick to a few routes you know well). This way, a predator can’t assume that you always get home at a specific time.
To protect against home-invasion rapists, something as simple as locking your doors and windows, including your garage door, even when you are in your home can make a big difference. It sounds obvious, but predators scout in advance for women who leave doors unlocked while running errands and watch to see if you enter your home without a key. Speaking of windows, make sure all of yours are securely covered by curtains or shades at night. Exposed windows broadcast whether you are alone and when you go to sleep.
These serial assailants search for that brief moment of vulnerability when you are by yourself and distracted or off in your own world. In the 1990s, a serial rapist stalked Manhattan’s usually safe Upper East Side, attacking more than 18 women in their 20s and 30s, usually between 1 and 4 a.m., as they entered their brownstone buildings.
My team in the prosecutor’s office at the time theorized that he counted on his victims being tired at that hour and he knew some were off guard because they had been drinking. He still has not been caught.
If you’re in a similar situation, instead of heading home alone, ask a friend if you can stay with her or take a taxi together. Presenting yourself as alert, aware, and able to call for help quickly will make you appear more empowered and less like a woman to target.

Hello all, this is Coach Joshua. This just happened to me today and I just wanted to send out a quick warning. I just got an automated call from “Card Services” telling me that they were going to lower my interest rates. One of my cards does use “Card Services” when they contact me so I thought it was legit and pressed 1 to be connected to a human being. So I get a lady who proceeds to tell me that they are going to lower my interest rates on all of my cards, Visa, MasterCard, etc. So I start to wonder, how are you going to lower interest rates for cards with two different banks? “Who is this?” I asked. “Card Services, we’re going to lower your interest rates.” she replied.
So then she says “I need to know that you still have the card and didn’t cut it up or anything, so I just need you to verify the expiration date.” So I said “For which card? I’ll tell you what, you tell me the expiration date and I’ll tell you if that’s it.” So she asked “for which card?” And I replied “Exactly. You never told me which card either. So why don’t you tell me which card you wanted the expiration date for and what it is and I’ll tell you if it’s correct.” So she said “The Visa card, it expires in 2014. We just need to verify that you still have the card. So please verify the expiration date” So I told her, “yes it expires in 2014 and I still have the card, I’m looking at it right now.” So she tells me the first four digits of my card and asks me to verify and I told her that they were correct. So then she says she needs me to read off the whole card number to verify it. I told her “Not gonna happen.” So then she asks “If you’re not interested then why did you stay on the phone? Just to waste my time?” So I replied, “Thank you, good bye.” And that was the end of that.
There was a little more back and forth during the conversation but it was just more of the “Who is this? And why do you need me to give you my information?” type back and forth, so I condensed a longer conversation for quicker and easier reading. But you get the idea.
If somebody calls you wanting you to give them your credit card number, or any information from your credit card, bank account, social security number, etc. don’t give it to them. If they want you to repeat it to verify it, let them know that they called you not the other way around. If any verifying is going to be taking place, they can tell YOU what it is and YOU can verify it. If they start to try and bully you into giving them your info, hang up.
Con men (or “Confidence Men”) have been around for a long time and are very good at gaining the confidence of honest, trusting people and then separating them from their hard earned cash or belongings. Always be wary when people ask you for any kind of personal or account information, just because they sound official doesn’t mean they are. And remember this, if they are calling from your Credit Card Company or bank, they shouldn’t need you to tell them any pertinent account information, they should already have that. If they insist that they are your creditor or bank, then let them know you will call them back and give them the information and call them back using the number on the back of your card, or the number on your banks business card or letterhead. If they really are who they say they are, they won’t have a problem with you being secure with your information, it’s important to them too.

Joseph Edward Duncan III watched and stalked the Groene-Mckenzie home and family for days, planning his dreadful deed. Duncan entered the home duct taped and zip tied the Mother, 13 yr. old son and Boyfriend. He bludgeoned these three victims with a claw hammer. He also kidnapped the 8 yr. old Daughter Shasta and 9 yr. old son Dylan. He held them for weeks in a secluded campsite repeatedly rapeing and torturing both children. Weeks later Duncan was spotted with Shasta at a Denny’s, after his capture and with Shasta’s recollection of very good details they found Dylan’s body. He has been shot to death and the body burned. The police then put together the pieces of who Duncan was, he had a long history of sexual assault and murder. He was in and out of Juvy and Jail.
The cops found themselves wondering why Duncan had ever been released from prison. He was clearly an example of a habitual offender who had managed to slip through the cracks of the system.
Hammilton Howard “ Albert “ Fish was a child rapist and cannibal. He had boasted that he “ Had Children in every state, “ and at one time put the count at about 100, but it was not clear if he meant rape or cannibalism. Most of his victims would either be handicapped or African-American, since he didn’t think they would be missed if they were missing. Fish tortured, mutilated and murdered young children with his “ Implements of Hell “ meat cleaver, butcher knife and a bone saw. These are the details of one of Fish’s victims. On May 25 1928, Fish abducted Grace Budd.
Six years later, in November 1934, an anonymous letter was sent to the girl’s parents that led the police to Albert Fish. Mrs. Budd was illiterate and could not read the letter herself, so she had her son read it to her. The unaltered letter is presented below verbatim, complete with Fish’s misspellings and grammatical errors:
Dear Mrs. Budd. In 1894 a friend of mine shipped as a deck hand on the Steamer Tacoma, Capt. John Davis. They sailed from San Francisco for Hong Kong, China. On arriving there he and two others went ashore and got drunk. When they returned the boat was gone. At that time there was famine in China. Meat of any kind was from $1–3 per pound. So great was the suffering among the very poor that all children under 12 were sold for food in order to keep others from starving. A boy or girl under 14 was not safe in the street. You could go in any shop and ask for steak—chops—or stew meat. Part of the naked body of a boy or girl would be brought out and just what you wanted cut from it. A boy or girl’s behind which is the sweetest part of the body and sold as veal cutlet brought the highest price. John staid there so long he acquired a taste for human flesh. On his return to N.Y. he stole two boys, one 7 and one 11. Took them to his home stripped them naked tied them in a closet. Then burned everything they had on. Several times every day and night he spanked them – tortured them – to make their meat good and tender. First he killed the 11 year old boy, because he had the fattest ass and of course the most meat on it. Every part of his body was cooked and eaten except the head—bones and guts. He was roasted in the oven (all of his ass), boiled, broiled, fried and stewed. The little boy was next, went the same way. At that time, I was living at 409 E 100 St. near—right side. He told me so often how good human flesh was I made up my mind to taste it. On Sunday June the 3, 1928 I called on you at 406 W 15 St. Brought you pot cheese—strawberries. We had lunch. Grace sat in my lap and kissed me. I made up my mind to eat her. On the pretense of taking her to a party. You said yes she could go. I took her to an empty house in Westchester I had already picked out. When we got there, I told her to remain outside. She picked wildflowers. I went upstairs and stripped all my clothes off. I knew if I did not I would get her blood on them. When all was ready I went to the window and called her. Then I hid in a closet until she was in the room. When she saw me all naked she began to cry and tried to run down the stairs. I grabbed her and she said she would tell her mamma. First I stripped her naked. How she did kick – bite and scratch. I choked her to death, then cut her in small pieces so I could take my meat to my rooms. Cook and eat it. How sweet and tender her little ass was roasted in the oven. It took me 9 days to eat her entire body. I did not f**k her tho I could of had I wished. She died a virgin.

I recently started the No Second Chance program and part of my homework assignment was to come up with my own predator profiles. You can pick up the book, No Second Chance a Reality-Based Guide to Self-Defense by Mark Hatmaker at your local bookstore or visit www.extremeselfprotection.com
