LAWRENCE — A would-be rapist got more than he bargained for when he grabbed a 31-year-old woman in the bathroom of her first-floor apartment on the city's northwest side.THIS. We need more of this. If you can't shoot them, stab them. If you can't stab them, hit them with a bat. If you don't have a bat, beat them bloody with your bare hands. Do not give in to evil. Fight it with every fiber of your being.
The 5-foot-1-inch, 124-pound woman fought back fiercely, and the 5-foot-7-inch, 200-pound man wound up outside on the ground with a serious knee injury, waiting for police to arrive.
This woman is a hero, plain and simple. And I love this line:
Exactly. Fight back. Not "give them what they want". Fight back. Don't cower. Fight back. None of this whistle nonsense. Fight back. Right now, the best tool with which to fight back is a firearm - have one, know how to use it, and be prepared to stop any threat you encounter.
And she has some advice for any woman who finds herself in a similar situation.
"Just fight back," she said. "Don't stop. Don't give in."
