I've been the victim of violent crime as a female, one violent, the other escaping the situation well enough to help my other gfs, and one last time was chance that saved me from being robbed but not hurt.
I was handled just fine by the cops, hospital emergency personnel, neighbors and family. I could have used the college counselor if I need too. What is the problem here? Are we women, required to check into a Federal govt program or crisis center now? Domestic violence shelters should be locally funded as well as hot lines. I worked on a hot-line in college but we were volunteers.
No one else can do anything. It has to be the Federal govt—far away in DC where the political classes live high on the hog.
I agree with patteeu on this one.
