It’s pretty insane that four days after the murder of Vanessa Marcotte they haven’t released the names of any suspects yet. The more we think about what happened to the 27 year old woman who disappeared while she was jogging in Princeton, the more insane it gets. There’s no way it could be random. What are the odds? I mean, think about it. If a psycho was going around looking for joggers to kill, why would he go to Princeton? It’s a town of less than 5,000 people. The odds that you’d see any joggers at any given time are pretty slim.
Thought about this a lot and if Turtleboy had to hypothesize what happened we would guess that it’s some sort of stalker. Someone who knew where she lived, was watching the home, knew she was a jogger, and just waited for her to leave. It’s the only thing that makes sense. And from police officers that we’ve spoken with the whole thing is strange. She was reported missing a couple hours after she went out for a jog, and soon after a massive search was underway. From cops that we’ve spoken with this is not routine for a healthy 27 year old.
Anyway, what’s annoying us right now are the folks that Donald Trump refers to as “the second amendment people.” Not ALL of them. But lots of them who are posting stuff like this on the Facebook machine:
These have to be the dumbest comments I’ve ever seen. Anyone who thinks that carrying a gun with them while they go running is even remotely plausible is more than likely fat and never exercises. That’s just a scientific fact. First of all, it’s the summer, so no one’s wearing a hoodie out when they go running. This is what your typical running outfit looks like for women:
Where’s the gun going? Didn’t think that far ahead did you? When you go out for a jog you typically make sure you have a few things – running shoes, a stopwatch, and MAYBE headphones (although head phones are for fat guys at the gym). But if you did somehow find a way to conceal a gun in an outfit like this, it would be incredibly uncomfortable, it would become covered in sweat, and it would eventually move around and there’s a good chance you’d end up accidentally shooting yourself. Try concealing a cell phone with you the next time you go jogging. It’s much smaller than a gun. Let me know how that goes.
We did actually look for ways to carry while running. This is what we found:
Like we said before, an arrangement like this would work for a mile at most. Then it would suck. Anyone who’s ever run more than a mile before knows how much it would suck to have a piece of metal on your ass or pushing into your belly while you’re running.
Look, Turtleboy is a second amendment supporter, so please don’t get it twisted. But some of the second amendment people are living in fantasy land. And they ALWAYS offer the unsolicited advice that you should carry your gun with you and shoot the bad guys when they fuck with you. Meanwhile, Turtleboy is living in reality and supports gun rights, but also understands that no one who actually wants to get physical exercise is going to carry a gun with them when they go running.
The bottom line is that I get why women would be scared to go running after something like this, but you can’t let the bad guys win. This was a freak incident, and living bottled up and sheltered is no way to go through life. The only way to defeat terrorism is to not change anything you do.
