Woman attacked at the Smoky Mountain National Park

Last weekend a 44 year old woman was sexually assaulted and stabbed during the attack. All of this took place in the massive and heavily utilized Great Smoky Mountain National Park.

It appears that she was hiking alone on one of the trails when she was attacked by a man who looks a lot like Michael Douglas’ character in Falling down but with a mustache.

She managed to make it out to the road and flagged down a passing motorist and was then airlifted to the hospital and then released over the weekend.

You can see a picture of the suspect on the new site here

I am glad it seems like the victim will be okay although I am sure she will have some emotional scars from this vicious attack.

People think it can never happen to them. “It’s safe”. Sadly though as this shows, it does happen. With a little precaution you can lower your odds of failing prey to this type of attack.

* Never walk, jog, run or hike alone. No place is safe and you need to have someone there with you in case of the unexpected.
* Carry a self defense weapon like a Pepper Spay for walkers or in case of hiking get a Bear Pepper Spray Repellent which will work on both bears and humans. This way you’re covered from attack from both types of animal.
* Pay attention to who and what is around you. Many instances can be avoided by paying attention to your surroundings making you look like a bad target.

No matter how safe an area you think you are at, you still need to be aware and smart to help ensure you don’t fall victim. Don’t be paranoid, just cautious and smart.

Stay safe out there!

Father beats man molesting his 4 year old girl to death

This past weekend here in Texas a man came across an acquaintance that he has hired from time to time to work on his ranch, molesting the rancher’s 4 year old daughter.

As any of us would, he jumped into action and in the process of, well let’s say subduing the pervert, he died. Thankfully if this was going to happen, it happened here in Texas.

Here we have a right to defend ourselves, our loved ones, our property and a third person with the use of deadly force should it be deemed necessary at the time.

I am pleased to say that at least so far, they haven’t even arrested the father of the poor little girl this freak was violating for beating that pervert to death, I mean subduing him. ;)

I know some of you out there are saying that it was wrong for him to subdue the man to death but I have to ask you. What you you do if you walked up and caught someone molesting your poor innocent little baby girl? What? Say please stop that sir. No, you would lose it on the guy at least if you cared at all about your baby and what happened to him from there was on him.

This is one less piece of trash in the prison system and in this particular case I have to applaud the father for doing what I would have done, subdue him to death, accidentally of course.

I hope that sweet little baby girl is young enough to never ever remember this incident as she grows up and my thoughts go out to her.

Well done dad!

Police use a Taser on a pregnant woman

I learned this lesson a few times the hard way back when I was young and stupid but you would hope a pregnant woman would think of her baby before she acted.

I refer to disagreeing directly with the police and their instructions. That never works out well for you, trust me. When you disagree with the police you take the ticket and then fight it in court. If not it will cost you much more.

30-year-old Tiffany Rent who is 8 months pregnant learned this lesson the hard way in Chicago on Tuesday. She allegedly was trying to console her daughter when she parked in a handicap parking spot at the local Walgreens.

It seems the police, who must have been in the parking lot somewhere, pulled behind her right away and started to give her a ticket. She gave them the trying to console daughter so I had to pull into a handicap spot versus the next spot over story but the police didn’t buy it.

Evidently, Tiffany got pissed and got out her car, got the ticket and tore it up in front of the officer. Bad move there I know from experience except it was before the age of video so it was not a fun time for me for sure.

She then went to go get back into her car and close the door but the police were ordering her to not move. At this time the police used a Taser on her threw her window from what she said.

Now I would be freaking out if I believed the cops did this even though they thought she was pregnant instead of just obese but in this day of morbid obesity there are plenty of people, both men and women, that could have 5 babies in there and not look any different.

No offense but looking at the video I could not tell she was pregnant, she just looks heavy around the middle. You can see the video here

Lesson here, Tiffany knew she was pregnant. Had she been smart she would have fought it in court and got it thrown out but instead she got zapped, arrested and charged. You never fight with the cops, period. You will always come out on the losing end of that fight.

Your time to fight is in court, not on the street with the officers. Take the ticket and move on with your day as the alternatives are much worse. Thankfully in this case it is said that her baby is going to be fine so thank God there and hopefully a lesson has been learned.

Stay smart and safe out there!

Lowlife Punk punches woman in wheelchair in the face

Of all people to pick on this scumbag, 29 year old Nicholas Velasquez, decided to show he was tough guy by attacking a 69 year old little woman in a wheelchair.

She was waiting for a bus when this thing walked up and just punched her right in the face giving her a black eye. After punching her in the face he then said “I hate white people” as he walked off.

Thankfully the cops got him not far from the scene of the attack and he is being charged with elderly abuse and hate crimes.

I hope they hang this piece of crap by the balls. This is without a doubt one of the most cowardly things I have heard. He didn’t do this because he wanted to rob her, nope, he just attacked her because of her skin color but instead of picking on a white man near his own age he decided to show how tough he was on a 69 year old woman in a wheelchair. Real brave.

Since he likes racial violence hopefully he’ll get some in prison from some of the hate groups that inundate the US prison system which he should be in for a long time.

Go get em boys!

Woman fights off attacker with Pepper Spray

In Bellevue Washington a 23 year old woman owes her life to her quick thinking, bravery and her Pepper Spray. Had she not had all three things going for her than the attacker that occurred Friday night could have ended much differently.

It was about 11:30pm and the young woman exited the bus at her stop when a man got off the bus as well and began following her.

The attacker then grabbed her from behind and tried to drag her off the road but she was fighting him. Well done BTW! He got mad and punched her in the face a few times but she managed to get to her Pepper Spray and gave him a blast.

He took off running and although she was injured, she still won that run in. I wouldn’t say to fight if they want your purse because things aren’t worth your life but when it comes to your person, fight!

I am glad that she, or someone that cares about her, had the foresight to purchase her a Pepper Spray which was vital in this attack.

A Stun gun would have been helpful as well but one self defense weapon is better than none when it comes down to it. A witness at the scene summed it all up when they said “At least she had pepper spray. Normal people, we don’t usually carry that, though. That’s very scary.”

I have to agree for less than 20 bucks you can help yourself or someone you love have that edge they need to stay safe in an attack and not to do that, well it is scary.

Stay safe out there and well done young lady I am very happy you prevailed!

Detroit mom testifies at her rapists trial today

I wrote about this attack on the 37 year old mom who was pushing her 7 month old baby in a stroller and today she had to re-live the whole thing in court.

Yup you read that right, she was pushing her 7 month old baby in a stroller when he raped and then shot her in the back. Hopefully this little scumbag, 18 year old Job Hughley, will be thrown under the jail for this attack as well as the 2 other rapes he is accused of committing.

We really need to consider castration for animals like this guy. If he was castrated it should remove all aggression from him and he doesn’t need to be procreating.

Simple solution and would save the taxpayers from footing the bill to house this piece of trash. Lop that sucker off and put him on probation. If he does anything from there it should be automatic capitol crime and then we put him down. This way the bleeding hearts can’t say we didn’t give him a chance.

Maybe some drastic punishments like this would really help to deter these types of crime and if not it should at least stop them from being able to re-offend!

Mothers should consider carrying a pepper spray with them when pushing a baby in a stroller. As this scum shows just because you have a baby with you it doesn’t mean it will deter one of these animals from attacking you.

You can get a Pepper Spray for runners or walkers. it is easy to carry and use and will at least give you some type of help when trying to protect yourself and your baby from an attacker.

Stay safe out there!

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

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!

Naked and Crazed Cannibal shot to death by Police

This story sounds more like a bad horror movie than reality but it did really happen today in Miami. It all started when a witness saw a naked man “eating the face off another man” and flagged down police.

When the officer got on scene he found a naked man tearing the face and neck off another guy with his frigging teeth! He yelled for the psycho to stop attacking the other man but he would not stop.

The officer then shot the man and he STILL wouldn’t stop eating this guy’s face so the cop unloaded on him finally killing the man.

Police believe the man may have been in a drug fueled craze but toxicology will soon tell us for sure. Either way this guy was long gone in the brain.

How anyone could do such a thing to another human being, even on drugs, is beyond me. The fact he was unarmed will have some idiots crying foul but if it was them or someone they love whose face was being EATEN OFF by some psycho they would say the same as I do, well done officer!

The moment this nutbag decided to pounce on someone else and treat them like steak tartar he sealed his fate in my eyes.

What a world we live in! To see actual video from this crazy scene go here

Stay safe out there.

Jogger Pepper Sprays aggressive dog & is attacked by owner

This story shows how an over reaction can cost you really big as Craig Jones of Salisbury Maryland just found out. According to the news story a jogger was jogging down the road when Jones’ dog apparently began to come after him.

Being smart enough to be prepared the jogger deployed his Jogger Pepper Spray on the dog. Enraged Jones jumped into his call and began yelling and chasing the jogger.

Apparently the jogger was hiding behind a tree for about 15 minutes and when he came out Jones is said to have yelled “you’re a dead man” and again circled around in what appeared to be an effort to hit him with his car.

Jones is said to have ran over some tomb stones in a cemetery in his effort to run over the jogger. Now if all this is true Jones isn’t very smart or very well wrapped tight and of course who marries someone like that? Another nut job.

It is said the wife of Jones was saying the whole thing was blown out of proportion and that the dog was like family and other stupid statements.

I say stupid for a few reasons. Going nutso and chasing someone who is defending themselves from what they perceive to be an aggressive dog is just stupid. Second if the dog was like family, how come it wasn’t fenced in or on a leash for its own protection. Any owner that cares for the dog does not just let it run free.

I applaud the jogger for being smart enough to carry and use a Pepper spray for Runners to protect himself from a perceived aggressive dog. Had the dog not been loose it would not have been sprayed; even if it really wasn’t trying to hurt the jogger the threat still existed as far as the jogger was concerned.

Once again this is all the fault of the dog’s owners and no one elses fault at all. Keep your dog under your control and do the same for your anger.

If convicted of attempted murder, disorderly conduct and malicious destruction it’ll be a long time before this guy will get the chance to be a lousy pet owner again. Lesson learned!

Stay safe out there!

Kidnap victim manages to text location and facilitate her rescue

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!
