Cab driver pepper sprays unruly passenger

Tuesday, August 28th, 2012

Being a taxi cab driver can be dangerous work even outside of the big city settings. Thankfully, most drivers are smart enough to carry some type of protection in case of trouble. 

I came across a story of a taxi driver that had to do just that, use non-lethal force in the form of pepper spray to protect himself from a allegedly drunken and unruly passenger. Check out the story below.

The cab driver told police that he gave Osborne a ride to a few local businesses Monday afternoon, and then took him back to Osborne’s home on Turkey Creek Ridge Road in York.

Osborne tried to use his debit card to pay but it was declined, the report states. The taxi driver told police his passenger then refused to pay and “became unruly when asked to get out of the taxicab,” according to the report….More at Police: Rock Hill taxi driver subdues drunk passenger with pepper spray – The Herald | HeraldOnline.com

Alcohol, $35. New shoes, $80. Pepper sprayed and arrested after a night of drunken stupidity…..priceless! LOL. 34 years old and still acting the fool. Guarantee he was sitting in his cell saying why didn't I just pay the guy and sleep it off at home. It just shows that man or woman, it doesn't hurt to carry a pepper spray or some other type of self defense weapon, just in case.

Some college students get a taste of what it is like to get pepper sprayed. I can tell you from personal experience it isn't fun at all. Your eyes want to clamp shut so bad it is unbelievable. It hurts for sure and although there are some rare individuals that eat so much hot stuff they can withstand the spray but I have yet to meet one.


Just months after being stabbed 32 times a young woman continues her life

Tuesday, May 29th, 2012

On January 24th, 20 year old Melissa Dohme, was trying to get some sleep because she had a nine o’clock class the next day but she kept getting calls and texts from Robert Lee Burton Jr., her ex-boyfriend.

It seems he was begging and crying for her to just come outside and give him a hug and sadly she did. She grabbed her keys and pepper spray and went outside and was immediately attacked by her lowlife ex.

He began punching and stabbing her and bear in mind he is 250ish pounds and 6 foot 4 inches to her meager 5 foot frame. At one point he must not have been satisfied with the damage his pocket knife was doing to her so he went to his truck and got a much larger knife and then began using that on her.

32 times that coward stabbed her until he finally decided he had done enough to her and he left. Some good Samaritans came by and tried to stop him while the attack took place but the guy scared them off and he continued attack until he felt like stopping.

Thankfully a police officer was close by and came and got emergency services on the way. Poor Melissa lost a ton of blood from him hitting arteries and how she made it is pure inner strength because that attack would have killed most people.

They need to execute this trashy little bastard, slowly! He really needs to pay a price. Thankfully she is getting her life back on track but once again it is all due to her inner strength and force of will.

Now to switch gears to have some good come from this let’s pull some life lessons from this. To ALL of the women out there in the world there is one thing you need to understand…any man that puts his hands on you in anger is no real man and does not give the smallest care for you.

No man would EVER hurt the woman he loves…period! The day he hurts you should be the last day he sees you. Change you number if needed, change your habits and hangouts, hell even change friends if needed just stay away from the bastard.

NEVER, EVER fall for the “I’ll never do it again” B.S line because that is what it is. If he cared about you and was a real man he would never let himself get drunk and/or angry enough to get to the point of wanting to actually physically hurt you. It just doesn’t work that way.

Let them beg, let them cry…just turn off your phone or call the police. NEVER, EVER meet with them or let them in your home after they have hurt you. Bad things will generally occur if you do and it has happened countless times. It could just be another beating but it could be much worse like Melissa found out. Stay away at any cost.

Also for the good Samaritans, especially the man who tried to intervene in Melissa’s attack, had he had a Stun Gun or his own Pepper Spray he may have been able to stop the attack right then and there. Not trying to put the man down, he did try when others would have run.

Personally, I would have Pepper sprayed him in the eyes (I always have one on me), chopped him in the throat (right in the Adam’s apple) and then grabbed him by the back of the head and introduced him to my knees, both of them. Big boy or not, he will drop with a few well placed knees to the face especially after a good throat chop taking away his breath and Pepper spray burning his throat and eyes, trust me.

This is the perfect example of why guys needs to carry self defense weapons as well as women. You may never need it to defend yourself but you may be able to use it to protect someone else! Think about it.

Please stay safe out there ladies. To Melissa, I wish you all the best in life because you damn well deserve it!

A Pharmacist uses Bear Repellent to scare off a would be robber

Sunday, March 4th, 2012

In Deer Park, Washington a would be drug addict thief tried to rob a pharmacy that he has evidently hit a few times before. Only this time Susan Beller was prepared for him with a big ole can of bear repellent pepper spray.

When the scumbag came to counter with his I have a gun and give me all your drugs note he got much more than he ever expected. He got no drugs but did get a whole face full of the bear pepper spray for his trouble.

Susan it seems, had enough of this guy coming in to rob them and decided this time she was going to be a victim. I applaud her guts and determination and if more of us did this we may be able to lower crime rates by making crime much more risky and painful. The days of easy money need to go away.

I only wish she had used a Taser on him before she pepper sprayed him. I say this due to the fact that he could have really had a gun and although not being able to see he could have fired off some shots hitting some innocent bystander.

I can tell you from personal experience just how well the Taser works having tested one on myself at a Taser seminar. I figured the best way to know the product is to really know it. Had she nailed him with a Taser, gun or not he is dropping like a bag of hammers off a high rise.

Thankfully everything worked out fine for everyone but the scumbag criminal, Aaron Miller!

Stay safe!
