Citizens of Guwahati, India arm themselves after a violent attack rocks the country

A violent sexual assault has put India’s citizens on edge

Guwahati, India – After a recent molestation made world-wide headlines, locals have begun stocking up on self defense supplies. Pepper sprays, stun guns, telescopic batons and knives are a few things that natives of this Indian city have been purchasing en masse in recent weeks.

The early July Guwahati molestation incident seems to have spurred the trend, and has rocked the entire country due to circumstances of the event. On or about July 9th approximately 17 men were involved in the sexual assault of a female outside a pub. It gets worse, the incident was apparently filmed by a reporter, who never thought to try to prevent it or even call police. As of this writing, 15 suspects have been arrested.

The Guwahati incident has instilled fear in single working women, and parents worried about their children’s safety. Now, many locals are buying self defense products or enrolling in self defense classes.

Officials have urged women employees working night shifts to equip themselves with self-defense tools and get some simple training to escape danger.

Experts suggest that in addition to pepper spray, consistent awareness is also a good idea.“Pepper spray can be a handy tool, but being aware of your surroundings is also important. In the last one week, we’ve had a large number of single working women and worried parents enrolling their teenage daughters in our Krav Maga self-defense classes,” says Franklin Joseph, self-defense instructor, Bad-ass Combat Academy.

Pepper Spray has been selling like crazy in India

Further, many are buying telescopic batons and stun guns — though they cost a little more than pepper sprays — which are handy, he added.

Sonia Narang, a local official, said “People are becoming more proactive and taking precautions now. We have issued pamphlets with simple tips to create awareness. While Bangalore is quite safe for women, the first step is to become more alert. Women need to arm themselves.”

It doesn’t matter what part of the world you live in, the danger of becoming a victim of street crime knows no borders. Pepper spray is one of the easiest, and least expensive tools you have at your disposal. Other options include stun guns and Tasers.

The police can’t be everywhere, and they likely won’t be nearby when you need help. Individuals must take responsibility for their own self defense. Don’t leave something as important as your personal safety to chance. Educate yourself by reading our self defense articles and protect your self with self defense products and self defense classes.

Matthew McConaughy, Carl Fredricksen and Voldemort?

Fake Matt

Subject: Anthony Mahowald
Crime: Porn & serial peeping
Profile: Likes to wear mirrors on his shoes

Meet Anthony Mahowald, who just happens to bear a striking resemblance to actor Matthew McConaughey. However, the similarities end there.

He’s accused of using his cellphone camera to snap pictures under dressing room doors. Police say he’s also accused of setting up a hidden camera in a bedroom.

Real Matt

And in February, he was arrested for peeping through a window. He was caught when the homeowner went outside to pick up the morning newspaper and noticed some tracks in the snow.

He followed the tracks around to the side of the house to his bedroom window, where Mr. Mahowald was peering in the window watching his wife get dressed. The homeowner used a stun gun to subdue him. Police say they also found child porn on Mahowald’s computer.

Disco Fever!

Subject: Weston Howard
Crimes: Public intoxication
Profile: Loves the Bee Gees

This is 85-year-old Weston Howard of Central Florida. Ole Weston is a real life Carl Fredricksen from the Disney animated movie “UP”. Weston was arrested for several counts of public intoxication, indecent exposure, disturbing the peace and butchering an already lame song in public.

Carl Fredricksen

Howard was seen stumbling along the city streets with no pants on singing “Stayin’ Alive” and begging for cash. He was arrested, held overnight and released after he sobered up and posted bail.

Police knew he was intoxicated before they initiated a sobriety test because they knew that no sober person would sing Bee Gees tunes, at least not willingly. Police said Howard has been arrested before, he’s the harmless town drunk who wanders the city streets most nights mumbling and smelling of Nightrain. However, according to locals, he’s never been known to sing Bee Gees tunes before, he’s usually partial to Rick James.

Meet Phineas T. Cormac, 42 of Thomasville Alabama. Phineas was booked on residential burglary charges and just happens to be a dead ringer for Voldamort from the Harry Potter movies. Phineas apparently choose the wrong house to burglarize, for several reasons. Number one, the homeowner was home. Number two, the homeowner was a 350 pound ex-pro wrestler and marine who was an avid firearm collector. Number three, the homeowner was African American, and judging from poor Phineas’s Aryan tattoos, the homeowner wasn’t thrilled to see him.


What exactly happened to Phineas’s face is unclear to police, as both the homeowner and Phineas haven’t been forthcoming with details. However, police speculated that the homeowner caught Mr. Cormac in the act of burglarizing his house and put a quick end to it.

Police also believe that when the homeowner saw the burglar’s racist tattoos that may have motivated a more severe beating than was otherwise warranted. We think just having the name Phineas is enough to justify the butt kicking that he got. Let’s face it, no matter how tough looking your tattoos are, your name is still Phineas, right?

A Gun Carrying Citizen Foils A Knife Wielding Psycho

Another self defense story involving the use of a gun.

SALT LAKE CITY – A citizen with a firearm stopped a knife wielding man as he started stabbing shoppers in a Salt Lake City Smith’s supermarket.

The suspect purchased a knife from the store and proceeded to use it as a weapon. Smith’s employee Dorothy Espinoza said, “He pulled it out and stood outside the Smiths in the foyer. And just started stabbing people and yelling you killed my people. You killed my people.”

Espinoza says, the knife wielding man seriously injured two people. “There is blood all over. One got stabbed in the stomach and got stabbed in the head and held his hands and got stabbed all over the arms.”

Then, just as the suspect was searching for another victim – a shopper with a gun stopped the attacks. “A guy pulled gun on him and told him to drop his weapon or he would shoot him. So, he dropped his weapon and the people from Smith’s grabbed him.”

When cops arrived, the suspect had already been subdued by employees and shoppers. Police praised the hero who pulled the gun. Lt. Brian Purvis said, “This was a volatile situation that could have gotten worse. We can only assume from what we saw it could have gotten worse. He was definitely in the right place at the right time.”

Police have not released the names of the suspect, the victims or the man who pulled the gun, and say they don’t know what caused the suspects to attack the victims.

Ex Marine Uses A Gun To Prevent An Assault

Semper Fi

Port St. Lucie Florida — An ex-Marine in his 20’s fired two bullets outside a movie theater early Tuesday after he and his wife were assaulted. This was the same thug who, moments earlier disrupted a movie inside the theater, a police spokesman said.

The altercation occurred as the youth was trying to get back into the theater to retrieve a cellphone he left behind, said police spokesman Master Sgt. Frank Sabol.

During the movie showing in Port St. Lucie, the 16-year-old youth and a friend were noisy enough for the theater manager to go into the theater and tell them to be quiet.

After exiting the movie, “(The 16-year-old) was trying to go back in the theater (through the out door) when he bumped into the victim and started an altercation,” the officer said. “(The youth) said something.” The couple were pushed and the husband was punched in the face and the youth’s friend began to approach the couple.

The husband, who is a former Marine, “feared for his safety, pulled his gun, for which he has a concealed permit, and fired two bullets,” Sabol said.

One bullet hit the 16-year-old’s hat. The other bullet hit a front window at the theater.

Sabol said having a concealed firearm in a movie isn’t an offense.

The four suspects, who police said were not armed with any weapons, fled in a SUV. Port St. Lucie police stopped them near the movie theater.

Just another example of someone using a gun in self defense to stop crime.

Piggly Wiggly Bandit

An obese woman steals bacon and cheese from a Piggly Wiggly. Sometimes reality is funnier than reality TV.

Got any Bacon and Cheese?

Georgia – Back in May, An obese woman, Lonneshia Shafaye Appling, 26, apparently stole some bacon and cheese for her Atkins diet, from a Clarke County Piggly Wiggly and then used pepper spray to assault employees who chased her.

A customer noticed Appling hide some items in a canvas bag in her shopping cart, then pay for just one item at the checkout counter. When employees tried to stop her at the exit, she discharged her pepper spray into one of the employees’ face.

It gets better.

As she fled the store on foot, employees engaged in a slow speed pursuit (She is 340 pounds). Running at a full sprint, she realized the employees were gaining ground on her, despite the fact that they were walking at a causal pace. Hoping to lighten her load and gain some speed, she dropped a few stolen beer cans from her purse. When they caught up with Appling and spoke with her in an attempt to detain her for police, she punched one of the workers, then spit in his face. Hopefully this was before she consumed the bacon and cheese. She even offered them cash if they would let her go.

This wasn’t her first brush with the law, she was arrested in January for shoplifting at an store in Madison County. When the officer tried to take Appling into custody, she started taking her clothes off and told the officer she had AIDS.

As the officer struggled to cuff the…ah…..large woman, Appling continued her striptease until she was completely naked. She broke free from the officer, who eventually subdued her with a taser.

Appling is a sad example of what is becoming of our once proud nation; selfish, lazy, fat, apathetic, and a sense of entitlement.

McMarijuana, Criminal farting and a dude named Goldilocks

There’s only one thing we love more than crazy mug shots, stupid criminals!

If I had a second brain, it’d die of loneliness

Man Accused of Paying for Fast Food With Pot
VERO BEACH, Fla. — The history of bartering can be traced back to 6000 BC. It is believed the barter system was introduced by the tribes of Mesopotamia. The Aztecs bartered crops and other goods with neighboring villages and cities. In the old west, animal furs were traded for food or other goods. And then there was Shawn Pannullo, who attempted to barter with a McDonald’s cashier.

Mr. Pannullo apparently thought he could trade a dime bag of cannabis for a Big Mac value meal. A McDonald’s cashier called police after Pannullo went through the drive-thru allegedly offering to pay for his meal with marijuana.

Police arrested him at his home. He denied the accusations, claiming he’d been at home for the last three days studying for a an upcoming urine test for a job interview. They arrested him on the spot.

Did somebody step on a duck?

Man Accused of Criminal Farting
West Virgina – While being booked for a DUI, Jose Cruz didn’t have any pepper spray to use on police. So he improvised, unleashing his own natural, but nasty brand of tear gas. Police say Jose Cruz passed gas on an officer and now faces an additional battery charge.

You can’t make this stuff up. According to the police report, without warning Cruz allegedly “lifted his leg and passed gas loudly” on said cop and “then fanned the air with his hand in front of his rear onto the cop.”

The complaint filed goes on to say, “The gas was very odorous and created contact of an insulting or provoking nature”.

Cruz’s public defender will attempt to blame the cops by claiming they pulled his finger, thereby causing the noxious gas to escape.

Who’s been eating my porridge?

Goldilocks Burglar
BILLINGS, Mont – A real-life Goldilocks has been charged with burglary after he broke into a home, ate some cheese from the refrigerator, made a mess in a bathroom and fell asleep on a child’s bed. A Montana woman says she was awaken by the sound of snoring coming from her 2-year-old son’s bedroom and found accused burglar Tracy Mullins.

Mullins, 47, was arrested for allegedly breaking into the woman’s home, eating, using the bathroom, and falling asleep.

A word of advise to young upcoming burglars; When burglarizing a house, remember to leave when you are done! Also, take some pride in what you do, if you are going to eat out of your victims refrigerator make it worth you while! Prime rib, lobster tail or fine wines are great, but cheese? Really, that’s the best you can do? You’re a disgrace to your profession.

71 year-old Florida Man Foils Robbery With His Firearm

Florida – Two men tried to rob an Internet cafe when a 71-year-old customer fired a few rounds with his piece-maker, foiling the robbery and wounding the suspects.

Surveillance footage shows two masked men entering the Palms Internet Cafe around 10 p.m. Friday. One of them pointed a gun at customers while the other swung a baseball bat. Samuel Williams then pulled his handgun and took aim. He began firing while the suspects fall over each other as they run out the door.

Crime Prevention Is Easier With A Kind Word And A Gun, Than Just A Kind Word Alone!

Nineteen-year-olds Duwayne Henderson and Davis Dawkins were later arrested and face attempted armed robbery with a firearm and criminal mischief charges. Dawkins had a miner wound on his left arm, but Henderson had gunshot wounds in two places: his left buttock and his right hip.


The good Samaritan hero Williams, has a concealed weapons permit. Bill Gladson of the Marion County State Attorney’s Office says the shooting appears justified.

Both men were arrested for attempted robbery with a firearm.

Chalk one up for the good guys, and another blow for gun control advocates. It’s nice to see that some people in this country still believe in private citizen’s right to self defense.

Stupid Chip Criminals

We love stupid criminals. We also love potato chips. So what could be better than combining the two? Enjoy!

Cheetos Assault

Take a Cheetos break

Tennessee – We’re not exactly sure what happened, or even if the event in question occurred at a trailer park. But the police report indicated a domestic dispute between James Earl Taylor, 40, and Mary Childers, after an argument over the reality show “Redneck island” evolved into a physical assault.
The physical altercation apparently involved Orange Cheese Puffs, that fact is not in dispute. However, it’s unclear whether the improvised weapon in question was Crunchy Cheetos, Cheetos Puffs or the Flamin’ Hot Variety.

Frito Lay?

Chips For Sex
Oklahoma – Lahoma Sue Smith of Oklahoma pleaded guilty to a prostitution charge for accepting a box of Frito-Lay chips in exchange for oral sex. According to an Oklahoma City Police Department report, Faron Ray Johnson told cops that he informed Smith that he did not have any money, but that she ‘agreed to give him sex for a box of chips.’ Johnson, a Frito-Lay employee, provided Smith with a case of chips he valued at $30.

I’d do just about anything for a bag of Sweet Maui Onion, but this is ridiculous.

Chips and Dip
WASHINGTON, Pa. — Police followed a trail of potato chips to catch a Pennsylvania burglary suspect.

Nobody can steal just one!

Washington police say 21-year-old Benjamin Sickles was arrested after he broke into a Subway restaurant and stole several bags of snacks. Not simply content to take his new found booty home to snack on later, he ate while he walked, leaving a trail of chips as he went.

Cops say the mental giant broke a glass door before trying to unsuccessfully open the cash register. He then made off with nine bags of chips after he couldn’t get to the cash.

Officers followed a trail of chip bags to Sickles residence. He was hold up in the house, so cops lured him out with sour cream and onion dip. He had a bloody hand and foot when he was taken into custody after police drew their Tasers.

Oh Canada
Saanich, B.C. – A couple of drunk university students stole Zellers brand BBQ – flavored chips out of a woman’s garage in Saanich, B.C.

We Always Get Our Chip Thief

The female students were drinking and heading to the University of Victoria when they passed an open garage and noticed the chips inside. The owner, who was alerted to their presence by her barking Chihuahua, heard the chip bandits and called the police.

According to police, the chip thieves motivation was the fact that Zellers is closing it’s doors for good in October and these chips are particularly good.

“I haven’t tried these for myself, but my understanding is that particular brand of barbeque is quite tasty,” said Sgt. Dean Jantzen of the Saanich Police as he tried to keep a straight face. “Apparently there had been some elicit chip tasting.”

Jantzen couldn’t keep his laughter suppressed any longer and after one question laughed saying, “These are first time chip offenders.”

You can’t make this stuff up.

These Are Not The Droids You’re Looking For!

Vader geek
