For years, people have suffered from sexual harassment, rape, robbery, murdering and many other crimes. According to usafacts.org, there are nearly half a million homeless people and there were 1.2 million cases of violent crime last year, in the United States. Another source, Gallup's annual Crime survey shows that 4 out of 10 people are afraid of walking at night. Even though governments are trying to make solutions to address these issues there is a cheaper and a more simple solution.
