One Bad Apple: "murder" is an illegal killing btw



Now I'm pissed that I procrastinated taking a picture of a billboard near my house that says "Murder is not OK."

It'll be there tomorrow...I will take a picture of it and return to this thread with it. It will likely only be about 5-6 hours after this gets greenlit.

You also won't know if the guy trying to rape you is just after some sex or BTK until after you're tied up with the curtain strings and being vivisected. Best not to take chances.

One Bad Apple: This won't even go green until tomorrow morning


And one other thing about this site...this won't go green until the morning which means us paying customers with TF can pretty much assume there will be nothing new on this site for the rest of the night. Even if some cool stuff h appens between now and then.

No one in their right mind would charge a woman for using it on an attacker

But, considering it is the federal government we are talking about...

Any woman who kills her rapist is owed a great deal of thanks by society in general, and especially by any women the bastard didn't get to rape in the future.

jaylectricity: BronyMedic: Rape is about power, control, and violence.

How do you know what motivates rapists so well?


All people really want is to feel that either:

A. They are in control of their life.

or

B. Someone with their interests in mind is in control of their life.

In practice, perceptions tends to move between the two in a sliding scale. Of course, some people don't feel that either of the above are true. That is when they act badly. Rape is an attempt to feel control.

Is that really general? Yes. It's also the most concise explanation of human behavior I have been able to create.

You can say it 100 times, that don't make it true.

We have to keep rapists and pedos in their own section of jail or they get abused. Even criminals don't like 'em.

Rape is one of those weird status. Raping a "biatch" or a "ho" or "stuck-up member another race/sexuality" is commended. If its a nice person, a family member, then it's horrific.

Pedos are totally hated. Instant death sentence.

Rape in prison...happens all the time.

rape, I'm guessing that rapist in prison who raped women of age and aren't a Lifetime/L & O characture are not targeted. I'm also guessing a significant portion(by no means a majority) of the prison population has crimes against women somewhere on their rap sheet but it's not the primary reason they are in prison.

doglover was saying rapist are on similar footing to pedos in prison who often need protective custody

I give all the women in my life the same rape tip: go to a dialect coach and learn how to speak with some kid of New England accent, be it Boston, CT, or Mainer. Then if you ever encounter a rapist, just start talking in said accent. Not even the most excited rapist could maintain arousal in the face of that audible assault.

Sexual assault =! rape to criminals.

Hell rape =! rape sometimes. Once the social contract breaks down rules get bent.

But seriously, while sex crimes are Bad with a capital B, most people treat them as BAD caps lock. Nobody likes a pervert. Even the twisted morality of violent thugs has lines. Rape is almost always the worst thing. That's why I don't get this "rape culture" bullshiat. If that were true, we'd see mujadeen style attacks as just ho hum and not evidence North Africa is hell.

I WAS RIGHT!

http://www.joetheso.com/sex-offender-survival-guide.html

Look at item 3. "All Gremlins(deliberately violent inmates) assume sex offenders are chomos(child molesters) and treat them accordingly." (paraphrased)

I learned two new prison slang terms and got one testimonial. It's not hard math to figure out how people behave, though. Most people on the outside, the logical and rational ones, immediately assume "sex offender" means child rapist. These are the logical and tolerant people. You think someone in jail for shootin' a guy they didn't even know for the $5 an hour they average slingin' crack in Detroit is gonna be MORE reasonable?

What the bull?!

Rape isn't about getting sex and maybe embarrassing her, it is about taking all control that person has of themselves away.  A power that ends when the attacker either stops or is stopped.  Here is a crazy thought, how often does rape end in murder and how is the woman to know that sex is all the rapist wants, because that's what rapist are good for is telling you ahead of time so you are cool with it.  Even if he isn't carrying a weapon, doesn't mean he won't kill her.

I think a woman should be able to defend herself from rape by any means necessary.
 
2013-02-21 06:07:55 AM  
The logistics of carrying around a huge can of bug spray makes the whole idea of using bug spray as a rape deterrent suspect.

You have people in this world are saying that rape often isn't rape because "the woman might enjoy it".

I'd say the notion that false rape claims can and do occur is only a fraction of the reason rape victims are often accused of lying.

2013-02-21 06:26:34 AM  
Officials at the St. Louis County Police Department responded to the story saying it's better to use items for their intended purpose and added it's against federal law to use wasp spray for purposes other than what's listed on the can.

...And here I am, agreeing with the cops.
The mornings off to a weird start.

You are always responsible for your actions, and your attacker is responsible for his.
If he forces you to fight for your life, fark him and the horse he rode in on. Show him the consequences of being a dick.

/If you've got something against guns or killing, get some mace or pony up for a taser.
/Really... bug spray?  How the hell did that get to be a plan?!
 
2013-02-21 06:29:07 AM  

TheOmni: Because rape victims are always believed?



So instead of using something that might get the victim arrested under state law, the obvious solution is to use something that's guaranteed to get the victim arrested under federal law?

What can possibly go wrong?

It's not murder in my eyes. In nature when a predator attacks prey and the prey turns on it and fatally wounds the predator, it's just the way that goes sometimes.
When that rapist attacked he had no care for the the target, and thus deserves no care in return.
And please don't drop to human live is precious. From what I have encountered from traveling to a handful of (I hate the term) third-world countries, a human live isn't worth a dime. There are far to many on the planet who would sell their mothers for a beer.

To quote Texas "Some people just need killin' "

There are no accents in Connecticut you filthy, lying sonofabiatch.  It's the dickheads that surround us that ignore their "r"s. Everyone in the nation should speak like a Nutmegger, the rest of you sound like you've got orange thermos in your mouth.
 
2013-02-21 06:42:30 AM  
I don't understand the wasp spray angle.  Why that?  I've got a can of bear spray that claims a 35' range in still air.  Seems more effective than their 20' wasp  spray and just as illegal to use to deter humans.

Because it's against federal law to use any pesticide in a manner inconsistent with its labeling.

In case y'all missed it,  that is what the headline means by "violating federal law".  It has nothing at all to do with guns or gun control laws.  It's about the fact that it's illegal to use wasp spray in this manner.

jtown: It has nothing at all to do with guns or gun control laws. It's about the fact that it's illegal to use wasp spray in this manner.


That's mostly because no one knows what the fark will happen. We can guesstimate because the pesticides are known, but really almost all research and legislation has gone to keeping humans AWAY from these chemicals. If you're that fearful, just buy pepper spray or a gun. Not only do we know they work, but they're legal and have a better range.

Wasp spray has like 30' tops. Pepper spray isn't like the movies. It's not a mist. They have a gel version that's at a higher PSI and goes 30' or more as well as not breaking up into drops like wasp spray will.
