Just more proof of how stupid the women of Atlanta really are.

Investigations seem to be turning up a much different side to her personal life than the one being sold to the public via the media. This whole "stopping to chat" with an old man thing sounded fishy from day one. Meredith's parents must be so proud of little miss hooker.
What a terriable thing for you to say, there are friends & family out there of Meredith's if you can't say something nice don't say anything at all, to Meredith family may God keep you's strong. Don't let people like this get to you just consider the source. My prayers are with you.

This fella tyrone fits the description of people who are heading in the wrong path. Why speak ill of the dead. All your trying to do is hurt the living. This woman is probably in the comfort of God and praying for us now.

Martial arts are a mixed bag. If it leads you to yoga which is buddhism and eastern religion they are bad. If they give you a false sense of security they are bad. But if they provide the element of surprise on an assailant who doesn't know you know them then they are good. Once while vending outside a concert at the georgia dome i had paid a security guard and provided him with my own gun. I told him if there is trouble don't shoot anyone just fire a shot or two in the air. This will scare the theives and draw the police.

Well i had a bunch of young people customers spending five dollars so fast i couldn't get the money in my pockets fast enough. I feel this light tap on my head. It was a punch that had missed its mark. When i turned to see who was tapping me. The second punch landed square in my face so hard it knocked my tooth thru my upper lip in between my nose. I was severely injured and required later a trip to the hospital. I expected to hear the shots for it was five to one.

No shots rang out. The security guard had run off in fear with my gun. One thing though. I had studied jujitsu and karate for 3yrs at the univ of pittsburgh. I was able to fight back so effectively that one mans arm was broken and another was knocked out and the other three were injured and didn't want anymore of me. I didn't stop me from going to the hospital later that night but it probably saved all my money and possibly my life.

You are so right. I couldn't believe he ran. He talked so tough and was supposed to be a friend. All he had to do was make a noise and everyone would have ran. Martial arts are not superior to firearms. The japanese found that out. But sometimes when it gets hand to hand. And for what ever reason you can't get hold to a gun they do help.

Shame on you!!!! Meredith seemed like a good person she was probably talking to him b/c she is a nice girl. You need to go back up North b/c I know that's where your from. For the record there are very smart women in Atlanta!!!

What I don't understand is why we all have to live in fear, look behind our back all the times, worry about what time we go out for simple groceries, saying hello to people passing you on the street, and so on...what has caused this fear? Is it due to all the illegal immigrants, drug abusers, the economy...
There has to be a solution to this problem. What is it? I want to advocate solutions due to this growing problem. I am now applying for a gun license due to stalkers, a man following me, then coming through the woods towards me, men following me, etc.
I am a nice person, but now feel that I now have to change and become a person that I dislike. So now, I find myself having to change myself, which is changing all the good qualities that I posses. Just really sad. My thoughts for the day.

In the high school where I work, the boys need to take a self-defense course! Nearly all the fights are girls--and I mean vicious, bloody fights. I've seen girls slug boys in the stomach and in the head. The "weaker sex" has gotten violent in the last 20 years and are acting like boys did years ago.

So let me get this straight...

Every time a woman gets attacked, membership to his martial arts class increases.

I smell a motive.

No one has posted in a while.

There are many different forms of Self Defense. You must find what makes you as an individual comfortable. Some methods are less extreme, but always remember things can get out of hand quickly.

Ask yourself, are your ready?

I offer options, choose yours:

I teach a Women's Self-Defense couse. I teach women how to "stay out of trouble" and not "how to get out of trouble". My best advice..."keep your head on a swivel" and follow the advice of the title of my book, "Stay Alert! Stay Alive!"
