Everybody whines about Daley's gun law, but how does he keep getting elected every four years? Watch Obama start restricting gun ownership soon too. Got my FOID card, got my gun, i'm good to go...and so is my wife!

Wow...no woman deserves to be raped but this woman was clearly foolishly reckless. Walking alone at 2:30am with headphones and a hoodie on??? You can't see anything other than what's directly ahead, you can't hear whats going on around you, and you aren't paying attention to your surroundings! Seriously someone needs to start an "urban living" training course for these recent Big Ten University graduates coming to live in "cool" Chicago! I don't care what city you're in...London, Paris, Sao Paulo, Sydney, etc. You walk around like that at 2am and you are begging to get your arse handed to you!
She's probably some ignorant Trixie from Ohio.

Nobody deserves this -- but walking alone at 2:30 a.m. -- male or female -- is not prudent.

PLEASE!! If you must walk home at 2:30 AM please be aware of your surroundings and turn off your headphones. Please protect yourself so that you do not suffer a horrid attack as did this poor woman.

None of this woman's actions caused her to be raped. The reason she was raped is because there was a rapist waiting to target someone. This could have happened even if it was 2:30 in the afternoon and she wasn't wearing headphones. Nothing she did was "begging to get her arse handed to her."
Sorry, but walking alone at 2:30 AM while wearing headphones makes you a TARGET.

when are these women supposed to have time to draw their weapon. My guess is this guy is not polite about this, so I don't see how a gun would have helped. People need to be smarter when out at night. NO HEADPHONES!!!!! You just make yourself such a target for these people

I think it's kind of disgusting that we can't expect some standard of safety and decency in this world. The fact that the victim was wearing a hoodie and listening to headphones is irrelevant. Don't you feel slightly outraged by the fact that in our society you are never allowed to feel the tiniest bit safe? And if you do, you are 'stupid','ignorant', a 'target'?

Obviously an Obama campaign worker with too much time on his hands! I have lived in this area for 10+ years, and to say it's over rated is the under-statement of the century! That's what happens though when Daley sells out to these social engineering, progressive minded radical Alderman who have done nothing short of destroying the potential of areas such as these. Liberalism = Ghetto!
You live in Midlothian, and call Chicago a cess-pool? I thought midlo was actually Robbins. It might as well be. And now blaming Obama? I bet you didn`t even vote. Living poor in Midlo is conservatism.

No all the fools falling for the propaganda that Obama is gonna ban guns, are great for the stock of Smith/Wesson. Keep panic buying cowboys. I`m rich bitch.

Women, I suggest you use your second amendment right and get a small gun. Be aware of your surroundings, and if attacked shoot. OH wait, you cant have a gun. Well I guess you need to take your raping like a champ and hopefully you are able to get a better discription to the police. Maybe after a couple of rapings they will catch him. I feel really bad for people that live in chicago.
You're not even allowed to carry a STUN GUN!

How ridiculous is that? I've even seen conflicting reports on whether pepper spray is actually legal or not to carry in Chicago.

I, fully support a law allowing WOMEN ONLY to carry a stun gun for personal protection.

I'm a man, and after seeing this type of stuff going on, looked into a stun gun for my wife, but apparently thats against the law in Chicago. What a joke.

Living female in this society makes you a target. Let's not forget that this wouldn't have happened if the man had not been there to rape her. Walking alone at 2:30 a.m. wearing headphones or walking alone at 2:30 in the afternoone wearing headphones makes no difference. The only difference between those scenarios is the presence of the RAPIST.

Carrying a gun, knife, mace, or whatever hardly increases your safety if you are unaware of your surroundings , as was the poor victim. By the time the creep grapped her, the chances she could use her weapon greatly decreased, while the chances he would grab it from her and use it against her greatly increased.

If we had a concealed gun law, then this rapist would be holding a gun to her head instead of a knife to her throat. Guns don't solve anything. They legitimize violence in our society. DON'T support Illinois HBO245. We don't need more guns on our streets!
