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 http://abcnews.go.com/US/great-smoky-mountains-national-park-patrols-increased-attack/story?id=16550269#.T9_R18UuE3w

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!

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!
