  1. Food for Thought:
    Maybe a woman or a girl that live in an area where it is not too populated, maybe when they leave their house, they should wear a face mask until they start driving away.
    Also another trick that might work, no makeup and very simple clothes.
    When you return home, then of course that will be a great time for makeup and very nice clothes. I am not trying to give Mussar. I am just trying my best to give you advice so these wild animals will get their evil eyes in a different direction and hopefully in the near future these bandits will be on the front line in those cities that Russia recently annexed. They need to shoot their eyes at the enemy and not at the women.

    • Do you realize that you are not an expert on crime-prevention, and what you think is common sense is offensive to many? You may recommend your hypervigilant approach and extreme precautions to your own family, but they’re likely to grow up with fear and possibly OCD. Leave the chumra-seeking or extreme tznius-promotion out of this, and allow some normalcy in our community.

  2. What a woman looks like or what she wears has nothing to do with it. Someone looking to do harm does not care if she has makeup on, if she is 20 or 60, or what kind of clothes. That type of crime is not about attraction, don’t be so naive. It is about power and opportunity. It sounds like you blame women for bringing such crimes upon themselves. Shame on you.

    • If what you were saying was true then the main group being abducted would be older women. They have less ability to fight back or run away so they provide far more and easier of an opportunity for power.

      • Thank you for your comment. I was actually about to reply to the wonderful Community member. When I saw your comment, I decided that since you replied nicely and to the point, I don’t need to comment. I actually want to say one small thing. I think that the Community member did not notice a few words of the article.
        “dragged her into the woods”————
        You don’t hear a lot of stories of a 60 year old being dragged.

  3. So you all seem to agree that it is the fault of the victims??? You are woefully uninformed about this type of crime. Shame on all of you.

  4. To the person who thinks that wearing nice clothes or makeup is a problem, when there’s an anti-Semitic attack would you recommend potential victims stop wearing clothing that makes them look obviously Jewish? C’mon, man!
    People should wear what they want to feel comfortable, as long as it’s appropriate. That’s not asking for attention from criminals, it’s being healthy.

  5. I don’t have much to say about the above comments, but one thing, B”H this is a virtually unheard of thing around here. TY to those helping out.
