Glad to hear you are ok, violence is a horrible thing. It's even worse when you try to live life as a nice person and someone does this to you and all you can think of is how you wish you could do harm to them. I think it goes through everyones minds after an event like this, could I done something else, was it my fault etc.

I've been very fortunate in my 44 years on this planet, only had a single incident about 20 years ago where I was punched in the face without even being aware I had upset someone, the same person also tried to knee me in the face as well, but fortunately missed, my friends just stood their and watched, and my best friend at the time, told me how he wanted to punch this guy in the face (but only after the guy had gone away).

I understand you can not pack heat in NY, but, how about a expandable baton?
I use it in my work and it can really put bad guys out of comission in 5 seconds.
You can get proeficient in it with very little training also.



My grammar errors are justified by the fact that I am a brazilian living in Brazil. I am also very stupid.

So yeah, I have my own car but sometimes I just like to walk and take the train, the motherfucker grabbed my hair like when you grab a cat by the scruff and took my purse with a bunch of shit... and then he ran... and there I was crying like a little bitch :(

I'm ok now, but it's the first time that I experience that kind of violence, or any kind of violence. But I also feel that I wanna cut his dick and put it inside his ass, full of bullet ants. The first time that I experience that kind of hate. Sadly I can't do that but just the feeling is satisfying. I have crazy thoughts and now I wanna buy a knife, pepper spray and take karate or taekwondo classes, and I'm not even joking.

It's sad not because of the material stuff, but because I like to walk alone and now I feel like that mf took that from me, so yeah, *sniff sniff*. Anyway, thankfully I'm ok and nothing happened to me physically, so I guess that he was a polite piece of shit.

By the way, forget knifes, they are not useful, they are messy, they will cause you trouble. the expandable baton will hurt the attacker without causing much of a mess.

1) cancel all credit cards. I know you have emotional issues from this, but if he takes your credit hostage, it'll be a pain in the ass to fix

2) Make sure you're alright. Physical property can be replaced. Your health can't

3) buy pepper spray. Either that or a taser. It's cheap, usually good, and doesn't kill anyone

4) learn how to defend yourself. Taking martial arts is a smart way to provide protection, especially if pepper spray doesn't work

5) go on vgchartz.

Thanks for sharing that website.

I'll probably buy some things myself or get something for relatives.

You left a nice comment on one of my threads a few days ago. I glanced at your photo and smiled. But damn, I'm sorry this happened to you. If I was there in person, I'd totally step in. I hope you find a way to defend yourself in the future. Be safer next time!     



thanks everyone for the nice comments



Sorry to hear what happened to you, feeling safe is a precious thing that we miss when its gone, I hope you can get it back, I would do taekwondo and karate classes myself, if only to let out some rage at first, get fitter, and get some control back

I hope your ok



I'm not sure why you thought you were safe to walk alone at night. That's very naive or very stupid. This is a crippling experience for sure emotionally, but perhaps it's actually a blessing in disguise as in the future when you encounter someone looking for more than cash from you, you will be better prepared to handle the situation.

I hope this is your only interaction with such matters, but you need to make better decisions.
