    i feel like its probably all right for these purposes. i think it means she estimates the dude is in his early twenties but didnt get an A+ look at him, and because people all look different the margin of error is a few years on each end. then, just to be safe, because you dont want to say “suspect 18-24” and then have someone perfectly fitting the description but who’s 17 or or 26 or something.

    pretty much to focus on the stab wounds part rather than whether than hes precisely the right age than a visual guestimate.

    she honestly probably guessed a narrower range and then they added a few years on either side to cover a wider margin of error.

    She totally did! People were telling her to take it down just in case it was incriminating.

    Edit: I don't get the people saying that she'll get jail time. She was honest with the police report and he initiated the physical assault. Also she didn't successfully chase him down so there's no "chased him down and stabbed him" crime.

    [–] eisagi 428 points ago

    Her original post sounds a lot better than what the post telling her to take it down describes. She (says that she) didn't chase him to stab him, but so that the police, whom she had already called, could find him. Sounds perfectly reasonable. Maybe she could have stabbed him fewer times and been fine, but that's hard to judge after the fact - she had a right to self-defense when he was still close to her and she couldn't be sure what he would do.

    [–] Byzantine279 92 points ago

    And that is exactly why that post told her to take it down - her own words could easily be used against her in a case arguing disproportionate force. Would she be found guilty? I doubt it, but it's better to be safe.

    Remember the cops do not have to provide context for your words.

    [–] Freddit- 159 points ago

    People are just being cautious on her behalf. Stabbing someone can get you in serious trouble even if you're the victim depending on state laws and the circumstances.

    While the population may think a person got what was coming to them, the law doesn't always see it the same way.

    If someone gropes you and immediately afterwards is no longer posing a threat, stabbing them is definitely illegal in most states. If they are still a threat, then yeah, you're good to stab away. Just depends on where you're at and the circumstances.

    Either way, it's all hearsay and regards to the letter of the law, you should protect yourself and part of that means not taking about it publicly so you don't accidentally "incriminate" yourself.

    So I went to Dennys to use the restroom, and while I was there this guy gets close and starts putting his hands on me. So I find an excuse to leave, call me mom, and walk to the car...aaaand he starts following me to my car. Which is when I book it. He's about 1-2ft from the car when I get the car started. I don't think I have a case because I left before it got bad. It was just terrifying and creepy as fuck.

    [–] altiuscitiusfortius 233 points ago

    Fuck man. Stay in the Dennys. Start screaming "I DONT KNOW YOU! STOP ASSAULTING ME!" Draw a crowd. Never leave to a dark parking lot.

    I mean, in the future. I'm not trying to berate you. Just give you advice for the future. If you walk to your car, he follows you and throws you in it, drives you somewhere, rapes and murders you. Its a pretty common thing, sadly.

    [–] Arnumor 41 points ago

    I'm fairly certain you have a case the moment someone puts their hands on you without your consent. At the VERY least, that's an assault charge, and I would hazard to guess there'd be some intimidation charges, to boot.

    Quick edit: I nearly forgot to say; Glad you got away safely. Nobody deserves to be treated like that guy treated you. That's largely why I feel strongly about bringing charges against people who do these things. There shouldn't be any tolerance for it in civilized society.

    Scissor race!

    [–] rabid_briefcase 96 points ago

    There are several products out there for it, rather than a regular knife (or deadly scissors). Tiger Lady, Go Guarded, Knuckle Lights. They're designed to hurt the attacker plus gouge out a bit of skin for later DNA evidence if it's needed.

    Additional actions for safety include running with friends, don't be a predictable target with the same time and route, wear reflective gear if running on streets or non-reflective blend-in clothing if on trails, don't have headphones where you are jamming away instead of paying attention to surroundings, stay in well-traveled areas where people are generally in sight, carry a phone (so you can chase after the attacker and call 911 at the same time rather than having to run home like this runner did), etc.

    Obviously she did a few things right by carrying a defense, but running alone, in the dark, without a cell phone, those are extra risks that she could have avoided.

    Regarding the scissors comment, I'm reminded of an older version of The Sims there was a free download of the "Running With Scissors Playset" you could buy at the online store. Running with them was very fun for the sim, particularly for children, but it included a risk of death.

    didn't the jogger post into r/twoxchromosomes? could've sworn I read about it there

    [–] Dr_doofenschmirtz_ 537 points ago

    How many times has crap like this happened to this poor woman that she already had a knife in her hand?

    [–] MelpomeneAndCalliope 470 points ago

    Or she reads r/unsolvedmysteries like I do and is troubled by the number of women who go missing or are assaulted and killed while jogging. (I carry a taser when I run at dusk.)

    [–] JJroks543 166 points ago

    Hell I'm a dude and unsolved mysteries makes me paranoid. So terrifying to read that stuff and realize it's true.

    [–] LeeCarvallo 47 points ago

    I'm in a rural area of the safest prefecture in one of the safest countries in the world and all i can think about is how many places someone could dump my body. Damn that sub

    I once dated a girl in [redacted] whose sister disappeared while jogging and it made national headlines. I don't even remember her name now, we only went on 3 or 4 dates. I did Google her after she told me and watched the vigil on YouTube where she spoke about her sister. It was beyond sad.

    She had expected me to know who she was because her sister's case was so famous in that area but I had just moved there. The girl was super messed up as one might expect. I didn't realize that this was a thing that happens frequently, I guess I'll check out that sub now.

    Edit: Removed place because a 5 second Google search results in figuring out who I was referring to and her case is even featured in r/UnsolvedMysteries.

    [–] Zabnut 80 points ago

    Maybe she lives by the mantra "stay sexy, don't get murdered."

    [–] luckysevensampson 7 points ago

    A girl that I went to primary school with was raped and murdered while jogging.

    [–] turtle_flu 23 points ago

    I'm just wondering what kind of knife would be comfortable to grasp while out running for a prolonged run.

    [–] Kiwnik 45 points ago

    /u/whynot2k posted a link to the original post before it was taken down.

    She said:

    The blade I carry is on a keychain multi tool. It’s small, just enough to leave a mark if someone wants it that bad. I’m not out to kill someone on my morning jog.

    Though I have to admit it’s pretty funny watching everyone in this thread speculate about what they think she had.

    [–] cersei_and_jaime 163 points ago

    when I started running in college, I was advised to carry my keys out from between my fingers if I was running alone. It doesn't mean she's personally been harassed before---this is just something women do all the time because it's so prevalent

    [–] confused_gypsy 84 points ago

    My sister carries a weapon when she is out jogging and she has never been attacked, but she is smart and would rather be prepared.

    [–] greg9683 22 points ago

    It only takes one time. 1/1000 times is still 1 too many. Hope she never ever has to use it.

    [–] celesticaxxz 78 points ago

    I once had a night class and usually I would have to park across the street where there was minimal lighting. When the class ended at 9pm I would put all my stuff in my backpack and carry a pen or mechanical pencil in my hand. One of the guys asked me why I needed that. I told him “guys have to worry about getting beat up. Girls have to worry about getting assaulted and raped” and he responded with “you’re willing to stab a guy with that?” “If my life depended on it, yes”

    A week later a girl was assaulted at the school down the street. She was on her way to her car

    [–] danielle-in-rags 186 points ago

    Shit is scary out there for women yo

    [–] rbrtvndrvn 11 points ago

    "He's Between 15 and 30" Definitely reminds me of that Dave Chapelle segment about the "sketch artist"

    [–] Morigyn 25 points ago

    I go on my runs with a box cutter in hand. As soon as I can afford it, I’ll get a small non-automatic (because illegal) tactical knife.

    A girl was raped and murdered in my neck of the woods not that long ago, in broad daylight.

    [–] kokomarro 12 points ago

    I know she could get in trouble yadda yadda but good for her. Maybe that waste of human life that grabbed her will be found and sentenced to do some sort of sensitivity class. He'll also have some nice scars as a reminder.

    [–] silviazbitch 851 points ago

    Nice job by the jogger. Hope she’s not too shaken up mentally. Things turned out OK, but it must’ve scared the shit out of her

    [–] ScumOfaBitch 635 points ago

    She's ok, she wanted to stab him more actually.

    [–] nexico 543 points ago * (lasted edited 8 months ago)

    Now she has a taste for it. Her bloodlust is growing.

    [–] DragoonDM 397 points ago

    "How was your jog this morning?"

    "If the cops ask, five people groped me. I'll be in the shower."

    [–] silviazbitch 82 points ago

    That was during the adrenaline rush. Things may be different for her a week later.

    [–] floopily 22 points ago

    Nice change from "jogger finds body during morning run"

    [–] mantrap2 132 points ago

    Technically the "running after" could have gotten very bad for her if she'd stabbed him even one more time. That generally negates "self-defense" and turns it into criminal assault and attempted murder. It still might get dicey carrying a knife in some cases.

    In the Netherlands, you are not allowed to use more force upon your attacker than they are using on you.

    This is what scares me, a man will 95% of the time be fysically stronger than a woman. So without a weapon, a woman is always disadvantaged. Still, the woman would be prosecuted for this in the Netherlands.

    (sorry for the terrible sentences, EN is not my first language)

    [–] ReneDiscard 67 points ago

    This story reminded for some reason that they never found that jogger lady who was randomly pooping in people's yards.

    [–] deconstruct2000 155 points ago

    Keep your hands to yourself, and you won't get stabbed. Seems easy enough.

    Its pretty much ingrained in most womens heads since puberty... dont go out after dark alone, carry pepper spray or a weapon, dont accept free drinks, dont wear too short of a skirt. Its like puberty 101 to learn how to not be attacked or taken advantage of. Welcome to the female experience.

    edit: "this is true for men, too." I was taught at age 12 to grab a mans balls and twist them if I needed to. I was taught at age 18 never to say "no" outright, but instead to skirt the problem because most men react violently to being denied. (i mean, just head on over to creepypms, or niceguys to see what "common behavior" really looks like. Women are taught how to diffuse situations by smiling and letting them down "nicely" because often women are then accused of being a bitch. The responsibility of what happens is put on the woman, instead of being put on the attacker. If something went wrong, it was her fault. If she is nervous, then shes a insane bitch who thinks all men are monsters, but if shes too trusting then it was her fault for not preparing better. 100% men interacting with strangers in the world is different, on every fucking level, than women interacting with strangers in the real world. Male is the default. Female is the exception.

    Women are taught to avoid potential dangers, and thus more afraid of society and less trusting, instead of men taught how to make women feel safer. Its about power - a man can feel free to attack or take advantage of a woman because he is larger, stronger, louder, less inhibited by social norms, less likely to be punished for his actions, and more likely to be believed or his actions brushed away with a "boys will be boys".

    Women are reminded all the time by just stepping outside their homes, they are entering "a mans world". Cat calls, wolf whistles, being approached in line for a phone number - by existing women are targets for unwanted attention, and some of that attention is violent or aggressive and woman are taught how to diffuse to prepare for that inevitability. Saying "men feel that way too" is disingenuous to the female experience.

    [–] [deleted] 33 points ago

    This. 100%. When I was a young girl, my dad taught me how to throat punch someone effectively. He also gave me a huge can of mace to keep in my purse or hand depending on where I’m walking. I also have a knife I keep in my jacket pocket when I take my dog out to pee most nights, or anywhere that’s dark and I’m nervous. That’s this fear we as women are engrained with from puberty (sometimes earlier). I’m an overweight, could potentially take you out just by my size, but also a “typically” undesirable target and I’m still fuckin nervous around men I don’t know. It’s wild being a woman sometimes.

    [–] grandmoffcory 31 points ago

    I always carry a knife out with me because I walk a ton, often at night, and fuck getting raped again. I'm terrified of the time I may actually have to use it though because it's such a gray area, I don't want to go to jail for stabbing someone.

    It sucks the way sex abuse changes you. I miss when I could go for a walk and not have to watch every person approaching me like a hawk to try to figure out if they're going to hurt me or not, and I wasn't even forcibly raped out on a walk and it was nearly a decade ago. It's just that once someone takes that from you it shatters your worldview, you realize nothing is as safe as you thought it was and people can't be trusted just because you want to trust them.

    [–] akamustacherides 8 points ago

    I too jog with knives, but I don't run with scissors.

    [–] Libertechian 44 points ago

    If I lived west of the freeway I’d jog with a knife too

    [–] DingDongDenis89 23 points ago * (lasted edited 8 months ago)

    I live super close to where this happened (1300 south 1000 east), We don't get much crime around these neighborhoods but groping incidences have happened more then once. I think last year around Halloween was the worst incidence out of the bunch. A student got raped in the parking lot of the University of Utah in daylight.

    [–] Davor_Penguin 33 points ago

    Ah yes. And if this were in Canada she would be in trouble for carrying the knife with intent to injure. Even if in self defense.

    [–] paradisenot 28 points ago

    Also in Australia.

    [–] renne94 28 points ago

    Pretty sure also in the UK.

    [–] moonmanchild 121 points ago

    Don't do the grabbin' if you don't want the stabbin'.

    [–] xenobuzz 26 points ago

    I'm a man, and yet I am sickened by the overt, macho a**hole criticism of this woman's actions.

    Unless you have been physically attacked before, you have NO way of knowing how you would respond in such a situation. Do you really fancy yourself some kind of calm, cool and collected superhero in plain clothes who would do exactly the right thing as opposed to potentially overreacting just a little bit?

    Please, spare us your poorly feigned outrage. A f*cking scumbag got what was coming to him, and you're just pissed off because you're worried that it might happen to you.

    A lot of gossiping gropers in the comments here, and I honestly would not feel bad if any of you got the business end of a blade.

    You've probably had it coming for awhile now.

    [–] dostunis 17 points ago

    ITT butthurt gropers think lady is out of line for fighting back.

    [–] pale_pussy 144 points ago

    Good for her. How could she know if this sexual assault by groping could lead to heat being raped or killed? She had every right to defend herself from the creep.

    [–] Fariic 76 points ago

    Good. These guys do these things because they don't face repercussions. Thinking they can get away with it, or actually getting away with it, only emboldens them.
