This is a one lady who women should pattern themselves after.
 
Strong.
Sensible.
In shape.
Bright.
Protective.
Clear thinking.

And still a lady in the midst of a hostile situation.

You go Derdre Rodriguez.:up:

Cedar Rapids woman bags burglar with ice scraper
Associated Press
4:39 PM CDT, April 8, 2008


CEDAR RAPIDS, Iowa - Cedar Rapids police say a woman chased down a burglar, bagged him with an ice scraper and then made him pick up the stolen loot he dropped when he fled.

Police were called to Derdre Rodriguez's home on Monday where they found her holding 16-year-old Jake Merfeld at bay with the ice scraper.

She told officers that when she came home, she heard someone jump out of a back window. She saw the teen running across the yard, carrying jewelry, cell phones and a video game.

Rodriguez chased the suspect, who started dropping the items. When she caught him, she hit him on top of the head with the ice scraper and he surrendered. Rodriguez made Merfeld pick up the property he dropped when he tried to escape.




Merfeld, who was treated for a cut on his head, faces a second-degree burglary charge.

if she's so great, perhaps many men should pattern themselves after her as well.

Good point.

More men should.

Now that the burglar was a minor male of 16 years old, how soon do you want to bet someone here in FYM will claim she was "abusing a minor" and had no right do "take the law into her own hands"?

yada

Actually chasing and confronting a fleeing criminal is not generally well-advised. It's nice when it works out well for the victim, but in most cases you're taking a foolish risk.

Generally speaking yes.

However I'm down with Derdre on this one.

Being that she's an intelligent woman and not a meshungina, it wasn't a kakameyme idea.

It was a real good chochmeh, based on her wise thinking-one must surmise.

Chasing down a burglar for some video games and jewelry isn't really the best example of "sensible" and "clear thinking." She's lucky she wasn't hurt or even killed.

Yeah, generally my rule of thumb is, when it comes between choosing my jewelry/any other possession or my life, let the creep take what he wants so I can run the hell away.

Strong.
Silly.
In shape.
Stupid.
Protective.


Are the words i'd use to describe her.

For all she knew he could of had a gun or a knife and might not of been afraid to use them. Unless he stole the crown jewels , risking your life for the sake of a few belongings really isnt worth it.

I did watch the video, twice. And my opinion hasn't changed.

In her own words:

I was so angry I wanted to throw something at him
That is not sensible clear thinking, that is impulsive, angry thinking, the type that gets people hurt and/or killed. Material possessions can be replaced and are just not worth risking your life over.

As a firm believer of womanhood, I believe you're selling womanhood short.
And I know a great many things, being a salesman and all and an expert on all the womens.

This has nothing to do about being a woman.

MrsSpringsteen 04-09-2008 05:32 PM

What does "still a lady" mean? What's the definition of being a "lady"?
