  • This story is amazing: a soldier in the U.S. Navy beat the crap out of a potential rapist in Dubai who was driving her around on shore leave. During a shopping trip, drove her to a secluded location and attempted to rape her at knifepoint. The 28-year-old woman “ knocked the knife from his grasp, broke it in two, bit his hand, wrestled him to the ground and put him in a stranglehold between her thighs.” The driver was arrested the next day and has been charged with a litany of crimes, including attempted rape.
