73 year old woman beaten, raped and robbed in daylight

Tuesday, September 11th, 2012

Sadly I write over and over again about attacks that happen during daylight hours as do many others yet people still let their guard down. It doesn't matter if it is day or night, a public or secluded place, you can still fall victim of crime if you are not careful.

Take for example this story below about a 73 year old woman who was out bird-watching when she was attacked, raped and robbed in broad daylight in central park with tons of people all over the park. It seems she had a run in with the freak previously when she inadvertently filmed him while he was masterbating in the park.

A 73-year-old birdwatcher strolling through Central Park was raped in broad daylight Wednesday by a monster who she said began his assault with four words: “Do you remember me?”

Then he dragged the petite woman into the brush and brutalized her just steps away from the tourists and sun worshippers gathered at tranquil Strawberry Fields, police said….More at Woman, 73, robbed and raped in Central Park in broad daylight – New York Daily News

She made a couple of crucial mistakes and I don't mean to pick on her or blame her in any way but there were things she did that did not help out her situation. 

First, when she encountered him previously masturbating in daylight hours in a heavily used park like Central Park and had that bad encounter with him coming over to her after she filmed him, she should have called the police to let them know this pervert was running around the area.

Second, having seen this sicko before during daytime, it would have been prudent to keep an eye out for him and also to have carried a pepper spray or personal panic alarm. Anything might have helped to fend him off long enough for someone else in the park to come to her assistance.

When they catch this scumbag he should be castrated as he will only do this type of thing again to someone else and the next woman might not be so lucky and might wind up dead because this guy isn't right in the head.

Just remember, daylight and public does not equal safe!

Another perfect example why elderly people should have something like Life alert. In this case it saves elderly woman from her attacker. God only knows what his real intentions were and what might have happened to her had she not had the life alert. Every penny she ever spent for that service was all justified in this one action alone.

No matter what you choose to do to increase your personal safety, just do something!

 


Kidnap victim manages to text location and facilitate her rescue

Wednesday, May 9th, 2012

On April 30th 2 young women went out and made the biggest mistakes possible, they left with 2 strange men while out on the town drinking.

I have written about this subject repeatedly and I don’t want to sound like I am blaming the victims or saying they got what they deserve, I am simply hoping writing about this bad experience will possibly stop one young lady from making the same mistake.

Young women think that just because they have a friend or two with them they are safe to go out and “go wild” but they are sadly mistaken as this story shows.

There were two women and they stayed together the whole time and it did them no good when one of the guys they left the bar with pulled out a gun and started making demands.

When one of the girls tried to resist the scumbag with the guns unwanted advances he shot her in the head, killing her. Cristian De La O Hernandez, 22, and Jose Juarez, 41 then took the other woman to a motel where I am sure you can imagine, lots of bad things happened to her.

Had she not been able to finally text a friend her location after a week she most likely would have ended up like her poor friend, dead. These two animals need to be treated the way they act. They act like animals and should be put down like one.

Here are some easy to follow rules of thumb:

1. Having friends with you does not guarantee your safety. If you are hammered drunk you become that much more susceptible to falling victim. If you want to get hammered do it in the safety of your home, not a bar.

2. Carry some type of self defense weapon with you at all times. It is too easy to do, to not do it. A Lipstick Pepper Spray fits great into a purse of any size and there are plenty of Mini Stun Guns as well to choose from for defense. Anything you can do to sway the odds in your favor you want to do.

3. Don’t leave the bar with strange guys even if a friend comes along. As these two poor young ladies found out, it doesn’t guarantee you any safety at all. The only way to be safe is get the digits and then meet them another day when you are sober and it is in a public place.

Stay safe and sober out there!
