    BAD; Woman assaulted during morning jog

    And its such a nice town...

    http://www.wtnh.com/dpp/news/crime/w...ex-assault-jog

    West Hartford, Conn. (WTNH) - A West Hartford woman on her morning jog was sexually assaulted Wednesday morning. The incident has prompted schools in the area to be on alert.

    The woman's identity has not been released. Police say she was out on her usual route on Fern Street around 7am when the suspect jumped out of the bushes and raped her. She ran to a nearby house for help and was transported to Hartford Hospital with serious injuries.

    BGs can be anywhere including nice towns and nice areas. No place is absolutely safe anymore.

    Another reason to vary ones daily routine, don't make it easy for criminals to target you.

    Houses are all down both sides of Fern St, it's a heavy traveled 35mph road east/west through W. Hartford.

    Not much cover for BG's. The article said "she was out on her usual route" Lesson to be learned, change up times & route.

    Any time, any place.

    A treadmill would have been cheaper, and it can be used year 'round.
    People like to be seen jogging around, it tends to give them the satisfaction of showing people they are taking care of themselves and staying fit and active.
    I think a little on the chunky side is better than being raped.

    Hope she recovers mentally in good fashion.

    I run out on the sidewalk because fresh air is better than the stale dusty air inside every home. I also don't have the money or space for even a "compact" treadmill. I couldn't give a crap if anyone "sees" me; I'm running for my health, not my vanity. In fact, I prefer it when people ignore me while I exercise.

    I also carry when I go running and I'm aware of the "hidden" spots along my route.

    No excuse not to have even a tdi while running. Then again, most people are oblivious that there are, in fact, bad people in this world that may have the occasional desire to hurt you. A nice 190 lumen LED light comes in handy for dark areas/random dogs/creepy people getting too close.

    What is a, "TDI"? A "tactical defensive instrument"? Seriously.

    I must've found the defensive acronym course too expensive.

    It is the name of a well known defensive purpose by design KaBar brand mini knife, as designed by a company called Tactical Defense Institute bka 'TDI'.

    The KaBar TDI is very well known in among the combat arms circles and has been for roughly a decade now since it's debut initially oriented toward LEOs.
    If you go to the knife sub-area of this forum and run a search on "TDI" you will find very many hits and individual threads discussing the merits, function and many varying applications of the TDI knife as is now a series.

    I personally own three; Small/LEO, Large/Combat and the small variant training (blunt edge) knife.

    Without tools, be they material, physical or mental, I fear she had little chance of defense or escape from an ambush.

    Agreed, although I would argue that mindset is the most important of the three you listed. Having the greatest tools in the world will do you little good if you do not have the mindset to actively use them in such an encounter.

    Strange. One would think modern life itself would keep people aware and alert, everywhere. Muggings, rapes, robberies ... the great equalizer.

    The mind, mindset and utter dedication to survive a situation. The great equalizer.

    Each situation is different. Ambush can be bad. Many of us have been there. If quickly wrapped up and overpowered by a much stronger opponent, it's quite possible to be able to do nothing about it. It's against these types of situations I have found a quick-deploying folding knife to be an invaluable defensive tool. On a few prior occasions, it has proved highly convincing ... which was enough to survive the situations. Which is fine by me. I'd prefer the 'tards to be eliminated, but if they merely go away then I have "won."
