Remember IT IS NOT A WOMAN’S RESPONSIBILITY TO PREVENT RAPE. In the world we live in, however, women should be empowered with any tools in order to protect themselves. Source for more facts follow NowYouKno

i think the best but also saddest thing about this is that MEN created this product to protect women from MEN

Preach.

It’s been more than a month since this happened, but please don’t forget Eric Gardner or his story. He can no longer tell it.

Moral of the story is actually don’t get in trouble with the law.

no

Yes

What did he do to get in trouble with the law?
He sold a pack of cigarettes. A pack of cigarettes, legal to sell if you own a business and pay up to the government for a piece of paper that states that you have someone else’s permission to sell something.
That’s what they killed him for.

 He died because he resisted arrest, no cop is going to go up and just put someone in a choke hold for selling cigarettes. They will do that if and ONLY if he doesn’t cooperate initially. Simple. Do what the cops tell you to do.

Is that what you saw? He repeatedly yelled "I CANNOT BREATHE" and was ignored. Placing him in a choke hold, then tackling him and piling on top of him (which you can see for yourself in the video, unless you are denying the actual events as they took place) in which he isn’t resisting arrest, they’ve clearly got him. They also clearly ignored his cries for help. He was not selling cigarettes at the time, he was explaining before they forcefully took him down that a fight had broken out on the street and he was simply trying to break it up. You can clearly hear the others on the street corroborate up his story. The police acted excessively, and now a man is dead over almost NOTHING. So show some damn respect, for if you were being choked to death on the street and yelled out for help, I think you’d want TO BREATHE too. What does "I cannot breathe, I cannot breathe" mean other than the obvious? Mr. Garner was an asthmatic man, and the excessive force to bring him down, placing him in a choke hold and literally crushing all the air out of him while he screamed for his life, that is fucking horrible. Unimaginable, except Mr. Garner’s family not only must imagine this, they must somehow come to terms with it. How does one exactly come to terms with something like this? I have ashtma, and I cannot even begin to imagine the horrible final moments Mr. Garner was experiencing. When you’re having an asthma attack, you need air, not force applied to your neck. Not pressure on your entire body, thus your lungs. Show some fucking respect. Don’t comment on my post and continue to excuse the unexcusable. I can’t think of a simpler way to put it than this: what the police did in this video is unforgivable. It is outrageous that a father in Staten Island could be suffocated to death, have his head slammed into the sidewalk, and left to lie there just dying. The moment those cops chose to approach him, Mr. Garner’s fate had already been decided. There’s no excuse for the unexcusable.
Update and important to note: the chokehold has been BANNED by police departments for years. “Chokeholds are dangerous. In Los Angeles alone, between 1977 and 1982, 16 people died in police custody after being placed in chokeholds. The LAPD banned the practice in 1983, and the NYPD followed suit 10 years later. Since then, however, many New York cops appear to have ignored that ban. From 2009 to 2013, the city’s Civilian Complaint Review Board received more than 1,000 complaints regarding NYPD chokeholds. The CCRB substantiated just nine of those complaints, and only one officer was disciplined — by being docked some vacation days.” (Source)

One of the things that is really notable about Moscow and yet not many people outside Russia know about, is how gorgeous the Moscow metro is.

These photos? That’s what the metro stations look like.

Yeah.

They’re called the “People’s palaces of Moscow” or else “Underground palaces,” and they were built during the Soviet era on the Communist idea that art and beauty should belong to the people rather than only being available in the houses of nobles.

These photos show just some of the metro’s attractions. There are many more mosaics, statues, etc, placed throughout.

And the metro is always this clean.

In addition to being beautiful, it is incredibly functional. It gets you pretty much everywhere in Moscow, and the trains run at intervals of every three minutes or less. At peak times, they run every 90 seconds. You never have to worry about missing a train, because the next one will come almost immediately.

Not always of course. In the late evening or early morning hours, you may have to wait as long as five whole minutes for a train. They’re also super easy to navigate.

We Russians are pretty proud of our metro system.
