Woman attacked on Harvard campus

Harvard University Police report an undergraduate student walking in the Quincy House courtyard around 1:35 a.m. was attacked by two men:

The victim stated that while walking through the courtyard she was grabbed by two males who attempted to pull her back towards the building. The suspects did not say anything to the victim. She fought with them and was able to flee the courtyard and entered a nearby residence for safety. The victim was not injured during the incident and officers searching the area could not locate the suspects.

if this happens to you, aim for the balls...as hard as you can. Guarantee you he'll be incapacitated long enough for you to get away. And if you're life is really threatened, aim for the throat, it will likely kill him.

And if you're out and about at odd hours, very early/very late,isolated areas,etc., carry some kind of weapon to be able to defend yourself. Woman, men and even kids need to be able to be more proactive. One of the things that bothers me about most 'progressives' is they want you to not be able to defend yourself, play dead, and wait for the police to arrive. Arrive to take you to do a chalk outline of your body or call EMTs to take you to the hospital.


Don't do this to you BF because you two had a little tiff. This is advice for serious assaults and probable assaults only.

So you kick the first one in the balls

There were two attackers in this alleged assault incident.

She seems to have done a decent job resisting them however she did, as she got away into a controlled-access building.

I don't know a single person I would consider progressive who would tell people to not resist an attack. That's old school "don't fight and don't get hurt" and "women are too weak to resist" advice and had nothing to do with politics and everything to do with ignorance about how many people actually do get away when they do resist.

Even kids are told to run first, then resist their would-be attackers or abductors - Although Trayvon Martin might be alive if he hadn't followed the advice he got at school.

eveything I have read by the experts regarding "what to do if you are mugged" informs me to not do anything to anger the attacker and to not fight back (unless you feel your life is in danger), especially if the person has a weapon, unless you know self defense techniques and you can disarm the person and get safely away.

As a person who survived three muggings using my wits instead of my fists, I can attest to this fact.

I am not sure what you are getting at with "progressives" wanting me to play dead and/or not to defend myself. It has nothing to do with politics.

I now have a blue belt in karate. You know what my instructor said? If you can get away, get away and if you have to use a technique, use it and get away. Fighting is always a last resort.
