uncovered meat

What happens when a government thinks its flock looks too appetizing to the wolves?
No, letting sheep defend themselves isn’t their answer,
and neither is putting a bounty on the wolves.
Their answer is always to advise the sheep to build their own wolf-proof pens or to gather them into castles that can be defended by the King’s knights. Above all, they say, pay us more to protect you.

Women in a Brooklyn neighborhood on edge over a spate of sex attacks are being told by police that wearing skirts and dresses might not be a good idea.

So, promoting concealed-carry will be the new NYPD policy?
Nnnnnnnn, no.
Appease the wolves, they say. Adapt to their cultural peculiarities. It would be wrong to interfere with the wolves’ nature. It is your natural place to live in fear under the King’s protection. No guarantees, of course, if you arrogantly stray outside the castle walls looking like lunch.

However, not all sheep peasants citizens agree:

“There have been reports that the women attacked were all wearing skirts,” said Jessica Silk, a Safe Slope founder. “Unfortunately this might be a common link between the women that were attacked but the message shouldn’t be that you shouldn’t wear a skirt. The message should be that, ‘Here are ways that you can protect yourself.’

Amen, sister.

    “There have been reports that the women attacked were all wearing skirts uh, women who had not been trained how to effectively defend themselves.,” yet.

    I’m thinking, a really short skirt, with a combo chastity belt/ rat trap device underneath. The perp could be located at the nearest ER.

    You know a little 22 may be under powered but Id be willing to guess that rapist will not be lining up to be shot in the thingy with one.

    A COP stopping women in the street and saying crap like this: ‘Don’t you think your shorts are a little short?” “He pointed at their dresses and said they were showing a lot of skin.”


    So who are the perps in this “series?” The wanted posters show guys who look like …pigment advantaged men. But are they converts reverts to a particularly mysogynistic ‘religion?’

    I do not like where this is heading.

    Claire, neither do I. It makes me wonder what ethnicity or religion the cop claims. It reeks of the uncovered meat BS ascribed to by the muzzies.
    I wear skirts and dresses because they are comfortable when it is hot, you don’t like it? TOUGH.
    You wanna try to *touch* this without my assent?
    I grew up with two brothers who were meaner’n junk yard dogs and they taught me how to fight dirty and that is IF I am unarmed.
    Some folks have no clue…..

    Get trained go armed. 15 Million armed females in the US, apparently none of live in Brooklyn… To paraphrase” Nothing says get off me, like a .45 but a .22 in the hand beats a .45 in the safe.

    Sounds sorta like the advice given out in Saudi Arabia.

    “A COP stopping women in the street and saying….”

    Yeah, that’s from the new NYPD Department for the “Promotion of virtue and the Prevention of Vice”.

    We all know that the police are not there for protection, they’re there to try to find out Who Did It, and if it takes them 10 years, well, some things just take time.

    In the 20s or so, certain civic-minded citizens took the role of protector upon themselves. It worked fairly well, but unfortunately gave us the Cosa Nostra in return. When the town hires a professional gunman to drive the errant cowboys out of town, they really need to plan for the future – how to drive the gunman out of town when his Work Is Done.

    Whatever happened to the Guardian Angels?
