Or She Could Have Insisted On Cuddling Afterwards...
The Defense Equal Opportunity Management Institute (DEOMI), an arm of the Department Of Defense, released this video entitled "DEOMI Bystander Intervention Training Video."
The video opens with a depiction the brutal rape and murder of Kitty Genovese. Genovese was savagely attacked and stabbed multiple times. Her cries for help were ignored by numerous neighbors. At one point, her attacker left the scene, only to return several minutes later to rape her and repeatedly stab her again.
The video goes on to suggest preventing violence or rape by, among other strategies, encouraging dialogue or using humor:
Only use these measures if your whistle doesn't work.
David Stein at Republican Party Animals writes:
That the Department of Defense would invoke the Genovese case to illustrate these "nine points" is probably one of the most grotesque and insulting misuses of taxpayer money I've ever witnessed in my 44 years. The ultimate irony is that the Genovese case illustrates the exact opposite of what the DoD (and, by extension, the Obama Administration) is trying force on the public. Moseley specifically told police that he chose female victims because they "didnít fight back." The Genovese case illustrates the importance of fighting back, not using "progressive" non-violent hippie-bullcrap. The Genovese case illustrates the importance of being armed, and the value of concealed-carry for women.
Your tax dollars hard at work.
