QOTD: Protect and serve edition

So some cops were pulling over female drivers in Oklahoma an raping them. A local TV station asked a police officer what women could do to protect themselves in these situations. From the sound of it, not much.

But he did have one excellent piece of advice. He said the best tip he can give a woman who doesn't want to be raped by a police officer is: "follow the law in the first place so you don’t get pulled over."

That ought to keep the beyotches in line.

Update: Here's another good piece of advice from someone who cares:

Hannah Graham: When You Walk Around Drunk in Half a Shirt Alone @ Night, This Happens

By Debbie Schlussel

Is it just me . . . or are you also tired of hearing the sob stories about Hannah Graham, the missing University of Virginia student with the weirdly “sculpted” eyebrows?

Not that I excuse any crime or violence, but if you walk around alone and drunk in half a shirt at night, this kind of thing does happen. I mean, do people really not get this exercise in the utterly obvious?

On Sunday afternoon, while I was at the gym running on the treadmill, I watched as every single cable news network broke into Graham’s teary-eyed parents’ press conference. Her father held up some silly stuffed animal rabbit and blamed her disappearance on the fact that she forgot this lucky child’s toy at home. I burst out laughing at this absurdity. I understand these parents are at wit’s end about their missing daughter. But, um, sorry, but her disappearance had nothing to do with this dumb stuffed animal. She’s an adult . . . or is supposed to be. And instead of maybe realizing that her disappearance might have had something to do with not acting like one, they blame it on her forgetting the plaything accoutrement of a kid. Yes, if she had only had her stuffed rabbit in her possession while gallivanting drunk and alone in almost no shirt on the dark streets of Richmond, she’d be fine. Right?

She sure seems like a lovely person.

I think I need to start drinking now ...and it's early. But I'll do it at home. Clearly, just leaving your house is an invitation to kidnapping, rape and mayhem these days.
