Illinois State Police advises women not to resist attackers

David Codrea has it covered (click here); the ISP advises women to puke during an attack.

Possessing no credentials, I am wary of offering advice on personal protection. However, it is my humble opinion that a string of bullets fired from any meek pocket pistol has more potential to be an effective defense than does projectile vomiting.

What about Illinois policewomen? Is there a difference between on duty and off duty? Municipal policewomen? A difference between Chicago policewomen and small town? Retirees? All women, are they supposed to forego resisting?

I hate the very system of thinking that leads to conclusions like this.

ASM826, while not intending to disrespect the troopers, I am of the opinion that, for the most part, the ISP is just another Illinois political body.

Thanks for stopping by.
