(Yahoo)   50 years later, Kitty Genovese's murder still fascinates. Somebody should probably submit a thread about it. Well, there are a ton of Farkers. I'm sure someone will get around to it   ( divider line

Genovese emerges in the new books as a compelling figure in her own right, a high-spirited young woman known as the class cut-up in high school.

Karen might want an editor

I do believe the Monsignor finally got a point.

I've always had the Crusader Rabbit Complex. If I hear something, I investigate. If I see something, I intervene. It will probably get me killed someday. But fifty years of reading comic books, and a dad who taught me well, has made me a man who can't stand by when bad stuff is going down.

I'm old, but not frail. I'm also a really big dude. That helps. I can usually chill a situation by just throwing THE VOICE OF GOD. I once actually made a big, tough guy fall over backwards just by yelling at him.

To me, my neighborhood is Gotham City and I am the goddam Batman. If you start trouble here, I'm going to get involved.

About a year ago, I heard a woman screaming outside. I grabbed my aluminum baseball bat and ran outside. I saw her on top of her car screaming while a pit bull was snarling and leaping at her. I yelled, and the dog turned and ran at me with death as his intent. No barking. No growling. Just teeth and murder. I swung away. I killed him. He deserved it.

It was only when the adrenaline wore off that I realized I was naked.

Boojum2k: Gunther: Boojum2k: At least a dozen people decided it was a "lover's quarrel" or a drunk, and claimed they didn't see any wounds.

Sure, they'd be easy to miss at night from a distant window, especially when you had no reason to believe otherwise, hindsight being 20/20 and all that. What's your point?

Boojum2k: Moseley got to attack her twice with no one helping her.

You keep making these kind of emotionally charged posts as though the few bystanders who realized what was happening were all appalling people for not risking their own lives fighting an armed psycho and instead called the cops like normal people. Real life isn't a movie, you get that right?

No, it's not a movie. She was really attacked, twice, she really didnt get any help until after both attacks, and she really died. And people really stood by and did nothing.
Are you saying that's what you would do? Because it sounds like you don't really consider it real, that there is nothing wrong with ignoring a woman being stabbed, raped, and murdered.
I don't carry a gun, I don't have any fancy martial arts training, and I'm no badass, but I wouldn't stand by while a woman was repeatedly attacked and make up stories after the fact that I somehow saw something else that wasn't there. Is that what you would do? The witnesses aren't being unfairly treated, they didnt help. Apart from one guy, they didnt call the cops either.

You sound like to need to move to the city and fight some crime.

Gunther: Harry_Seldon: I am not one of "those guys," but in Oregon, I would have probably shot that guy two or three times to put him down.

You are exactly one of "those guys" if by "those guys" you mean "internet tough guy".

Dunno, never been put in the situation. I only have one weapon, but I am not that experienced with it. It is a Ruger LCR double action revolver with a front sight. I spent six years in the Army (it's been a while), so I have some weapons training. My ex-wife of ten years is a deputy sheriff, and she kept me in practice. She probably would have no trouble, but then again, she would have probably beat the crap out of him with her baton. She had more practice with that when she worked in county jail.

oh ffs..

this is one of those myths that just needs to be put to death.

Christopher Columbus did not discover America, The Roanoke Colony did not just vanish mysteriously, the American Civil War was not about slavery, a cow did not start the Great Chicago Fire, Rosa Parks wasn't some old lady who was just too tired to give up her bus seat. and 40 people did not go to their windows and do nothing while Kitty Genovese was being murdered right in front of their eyes.

f*cking sheeple.
