"Just Give Them What They Want"...

The more I hear stories like the following, the more I am convinced that people who advise the above (give a robber what they want) are evil, rather than simply stupid. There are too many stories like this one out there:

Bentley Grad Kidnapped From South Boston & Murdered
BOSTON (CBS) – A young woman was kidnapped from South Boston in broad daylight Tuesday morning and forced to take out money from five different ATMs before she was taken to Stony Brook Reservation in Hyde Park and stabbed to death, the District Attorney said on Wednesday.
The body of the victim, identified as 24-year-old Amy Lord, was discovered Tuesday afternoon. Police believe she was in her car when she was abducted around 6 a.m. Her car was later returned to South Boston, where it was set on fire.
Got that? She did what her attacker wanted - FIVE GODDAMNED TIMES - and was murdered in cold blood for her compliance. Anyone telling you that you should just give in and do what they want does NOT have your best interest at heart - they simply want meek, compliant lambs for the slaughter. This woman was a good little victim, and paid for her compliance with her life. Here's something else to think about: She's 24 years old. That means that 6 years ago she was a college freshman - when the Virginia Tech shootings happened and 32 people were murdered for being good compliant little victims.

What strikes me the most is that she got out of the vehicle five times - five times she could have taken off running; five times she could have called for help; five times she had a chance to escape. But no, she listened to the Martha Coakleys of this world and gave her assailant what he wanted - five times - and when he had gotten what he wanted, he took the most important thing in the world from her. She listened to all those police chiefs who assured her that compliance was less dangerous than resistance - those ARMED police chiefs - and she died in a hail of stab wounds delivered by some psychopath who didn't get the message about letting her live because she complied.

Fuck that shit right in its ear.

Massachusetts is too "civilized" for the death penalty. That's a pity. I'll bet good money that the person who killed her is known to police; most likely has a rap sheet longer than they are tall; and has received a series of slaps on the wrist up until this point. Since they were plying their trade in Massachusetts they knew they stood a very good chance of avoiding armed victims, so were free to rob, threaten, and eventually kill with impunity. How utterly progressive, Massachusetts. Maybe instead of proposing new gun bans, you ought to start banning knives like in England? Surely that will stop vicious street thugs from murdering young women!

Fight back. Ideally with something that goes [BOOM] and punches large holes in whoever is attacking you.

That is all.

Banning Knives? I know that Double-Edged Blades have been Verboten since at least 1978, when I tried to purchase one in Boston.

Which means Jack Shit to the dead girl.

Given what we've learned since April, it's also possible that this evil POS could be another Speed Bump or Joker.

If they're willing to kill you because when you don't comply then they are just as willing to kill you when you do comply. The converse is almost certainly true; if they are not willing to kill you after you comply then they most likely will not kill you if you refuse to comply.

This is what I teach my kids and then explain to them that even if they are at a serious disadvantage, they should still run, scream, bite, kick, spit, gouge eyes, and crack nuts (assuming a man) regardless of what their assailant has threatened.

If she'd had a gun, the violence may have needlessly escalated, and someone could have gotten hurt. He may even have taken it and used it against her, don'tcha know.

Looking at the picture in that link I call tell you exactly where she is. I can also tell you that at the time of day this was taken, there are hundreds of people nearby and many stores. Often there are police.

Why she didn't run and ask for help doesn't matter now, it's just sad that she didn't have the means or mindset to resist because we'd be reading a different story had she.

Unfortunately, as a recent transplant to Boston, she would probably not be able to get a Massachusetts LTC because Boston PD does not like to issue those. The locals know this, too.

She should have gotten a LTC from the Wilbraham address of her parents as soon as she turned 21 and then changed the address when she moved to Boston.

Let's leave off the woulda, should, coulda. We don't know what happened. What we do know is that a young woman has been murdered, senselessly.

We also know, if we needed reminders, that monsters prowl the streets -- monsters who will kidnap a young woman to get a few bucks out of her, and then murder her for no reason.

Never mind what she did or didn't do. What would you do?

Daniel in Brookline, I don't think he's really insulting the victim.

I believe Jay is underscoring the fact that you cannot assume that a criminal is going to leave you intact when you think you have done what he wants you to do.

Relying on the mercy of ruthless animals, who are threatening you with deadly force, is pointless. resisting and maybe even killing them seems to make a lot more sense.

When addressed by an unlawful aggressor, the proper way to punctuate the sentence, "I will kill you if you do not do what I want," is with a period after the first usage of the word, "you". The sentence retains its meaning that way.

How you apply the period is situational dependant, but I will note the sentence is semantically equivalent to "I will kill."

Ed said...

The Boston Police Department cannot, and will not protect you. There is no "would, should, could" in that statement. You are on your own in maintaining your own personal safety. The Mayor and the Chief of Police are contemptuous of thus concept. What are you going to do about it?

Larry said...

Methinks the statement is misconstrued. Obviously what the miscreant most ardently desires is a hot chunk of lead in the cranium.

And so, you should give them exactly what they want, and then they will most certainly leave you alone.
