I am a woman and carry a gun all of the time, every where I go. He would have never made it past my car door. If weapons are not your thing, at least take self defense classes. Learn how to get out of these situations. You’ll be surprised how empowered you feel.
I’m wondering if her dad being a prominent diplomat had something to do with this. Because he was charged with kidnapping at this point, it makes me believe there was a ransom or some other personal gain for this idiot. I pray they find her alive.
I totally disagree with your post. That is a very broad statement you made. You say they couldn’t care less? What about the officer giving CPR to the man that has a heart attack on the street or an officer giving mouth to mouth on a newborn baby trying to get her to breathe? Or maybe the...

The Fifth Amendment right not to incriminate yourself is not restricted only to cases where you are under indictment or actively being prosecuted for a crime. In 1976, the U.S. Supreme Court ruled on a case called McCarthy v. Arndstein. Among other holdings, the court ruled: “The constitutional...
