Forewarned is forearmed.
Knowledge is power.
Awareness is strength.
The best advice I’d offer anyone traveling through life on planet Earth is trust no one, unless s/he proves him/herself trustworthy, and think like the thugs.
In this unsafe world, the latter, combined with common sense and clear sight about reality, offers one of the better forms of protection.
I’m no doe in the woods when it comes to violence and shit in life, including that cast in particular upon children and women.
Still, this message from a pal with connections to the Department of Corrections troubled a nerve. Even if it doesn’t apply to you directly, it’s helpful to share. Too often females tend to be too trusting and/or naive and can only benefit by knowing what’s what.
Think like the thugs. Know what the thugs think. Awareness is a first step toward safety. Now to what’s going down …
“There is a new gang initiation in progress in the Tacoma area. Young children or young girls are placed on the side of the road crying. When a female stops to help, they ask for a ride home. When the driver arrives at the house, she is besieged by waiting gang members, beaten and raped.
“This is not a joke. Hopefully, telling people about the initiation will cause it to be less effective and they will stop.
“Please pass this on to all women you know who live in the Tacoma area.”
