Shaven-headed woman wearing camouflage killed mother-of-five by slashing her throat in a supermarket

http://pzfeed.com/shaven-headed-woman-wearing-camouflage-killed-mother-of-five-by-slashing-her-throat-in-a-supermarket/

A 59-year-old mother-of-five was murdered in broad daylight on Wednesday, while shopping at a supermarket in Maine.

Local woman Wendy Boudreau was in the ice cream section of Shaw’s supermarket in Saco when she was approached by another woman wearing camouflage clothing who came up and slashed her throat shortly before 3pm.

psycho looking if I've ever seen one:

4. craps.



I've been thinking it's time to keep myself armed at least with pepper spray. Co-worker was describing her home set up to me the other day at work (palm-print safe bolted into the floor under bed with loaded 45). Another one carries pepper spray -- wanted to carry bear mace, but you need a license.

It's just getting too crazy out there...

5. If I could suggest...

Don't go with Mace, always use pepper spray.

Mace, (which is a brand name), is actually tear gas and does not work very well on people that are on a lot of drugs. Pepper spray, which law enforcement and prison guards use will incapacitate the bad guy in about one second.

Be sure you get trained to use it. After all, you wouldn't want to end up spraying yourself instead of the bad guy.

11. VOTE's recommendation is a good one.

Sabre Red brand is particularly good. All pepper sprays are not the same. Also, I recommend buying one of their inert cannisters so you can safely see how far it shoots, how long it lasts, and effect of wind.

6. a clear illustration

 

of the fact that if you are taken unawares by someone bent on harming you, it doesn't really matter a whit what you, or anyone in the vicinity, may have "armed yourself" with.

The differences between a firearm and a knife, in such a situation, are
a knife is ineffective at a distance,
a knife seldom strikes a bystander, and
killing/injuring large numbers of people with a knife in a short space of time is difficult, both physically and because of the greater likelihood of being overwhelmed before succeeding.

Yes, yes: there have been mass knife attacks in public places. They have not resulted in mass murders.

17. ooooh, four, count 'em, four incidents

 

Worldwide. In how long? You had to go back to 2001 for that Osaka incident.

About the same number as in a month in the US then?

Now tell us about the knife attacks that have resulted in multiple injuries but no deaths, 'k? I'm sure google can find you some of them.

And do pay attention. I said: "in such a situation". The situation in question does not include family homicides, often committed when the victims are sleeping.

Gotta love the Oklahoma example you provided, though: the two murderers were teenaged sons of the murdered parents. "A neighbor told the Associated Press that the family homeschooled their children and kept them on a tight leash." I see something that needs to be banned.

mass murder homeschooled

And not just in the U.S.

Knowing your penchant for accuracy, I just thought you would want to be apprised of the error in your statement as it did not give specifics in terms of location, time frame or inter-relational status.

24. what do I require?

 

Oh, even the slightest intellectual honesty will do me.

But keep blathering about family/acquaintance violence incidents that have nothing whatsoever to do with mass murders of strangers in public places and pretending I did not state that specification, because it is relevant, if you like.

How many mass firearm murders in public places have there been in the US this year?

http://www.washingtonpost.com/news/wonkblog/wp/2015/06/18/11-essential-facts-about-guns-and-mass-shootings-in-the-united-states/
Mother Jones tracked and mapped shooting sprees over the three decades from 1982 to May of last year. They counted "at least 61 mass murders carried out with firearms across the country, with the killings unfolding in 30 states from Massachusetts to Hawaii," they found.

A Congressional Research Service report published in 2013 counted 78 incidents over roughly the same period, in which 547 were killed. Definitions of mass shootings vary. The report excludes those for whom terrorist ideology or criminal profit was a motivation. The Mother Jones staff limited themselves to indiscriminate killings of at least four people in public places by lone shooters.

How about that one? Indiscriminate killings of at least four people in public places by lone stabbers.

Have at it.

37. oh ffs

 

A frame for comparison is needed, you see.

Mother Jones selected criteria for determining how many mass shootings and mass shooting deaths had occurred within a certain timeframe. It's a perfectly reasonable one: four deaths of people killed by a single individual. If you'd rather use three people, or two people, as your criterion for "mass murder", feel free to do the work yourself.

I said IN MY FIRST POST, post #6:
The differences between a firearm and a knife, IN SUCH A SITUATION, are ...
What is it that makes somebody else think THEY can shift the goalposts stated?

If somebody else wants to make a different comparison, THEY can feel free to do it.

The situation that THIS thread is about is a murder IN A PUBLIC PLACE, OF A STRANGER.

NOT about killings in private homes, of family members/acquaintances.

If you want to compare the numbers of single stabbing murders of strangers in public places and single shooting murders of strangers in public places, you feel free to do that too. If you want to compare stabbing murders and shooting in private places, of family members/acquaintances, you feel free to do that too. It will just be something completely different from the situation reported in this thread.

44. Speaking of intellectual honesty,

your post #6 was...
" a clear illustration of the fact that if you are taken unawares by someone bent on harming you, it doesn't really matter a whit what you, or anyone in the vicinity, may have "armed yourself" with.

The differences between a firearm and a knife, in such a situation, are...."

Most readers would take "in such a situation' to mean your preceding statement being "taken unawares by someone bent on harming you".

The fact that you were called on your last statement of "Yes, yes: there have been mass knife attacks in public places. They have not resulted in mass murders", which is obviously more hyperbole than fact then caused you to backtrack and add additional qualifiers that were clearly not part of your original post #6.
To wit, not family or acquaintances.

Now should we also only include F to M transgenders, since that seems to be the sexual proclivity of the attacker and if that be the case, can you point to the number of F to M transgender mass murderers that also was not a family member or acquaintance of the victims where the weapon used was a gun?

Yes, I'll bet you're the guy who stalks the aisles of grocery stores keeping a beady eye on every single person within eyeshot, watching for any signs they are about to slit the throat of a complete stranger picking out ice cream.

And would have drawn and fired in the second when that person drew that knife.

I presume you don't get much grocery shopping done yourself.

I still work some shifts where a security clearances, a bite dog tied to my arm, and firearms are required. I am paid to secure life and property. I am not and will not be a cooperative victim. It looks like that is your choice in life.

Keep talking. You are the very reason there are criminals out there. People who are willing victims and who are not prepared to be responsible for themselves and their own security.

Situational awareness is the real term. It is nothing like your fantasies but that does not stop your vivid and deranged ideas of what being responsible for oneself is really like.

Yes I live my life aware of what goes on around me. No I am not strange or even obvious about it. Yes I have at least on backup with me always. My wife and her legally carried firearm, and her many years of training and shooting experience as well.

Self awareness, self responsibility, those are great traits. Or you can just be a willing victim. The choice is yours.

you want to be a helpless and very willing victim, I will never be that.

I am well trained and experienced in taking care of my own situation as well as other situations as I am assigned to.

The fact is that it is people like me that people like you call when you can't manage your own personal security.

This is about like the hypocrisy of the hollyweird morons who scream about gun control but have armed bodyguards to protect them. Armed security for me but not for thy....

You complain loudly and then let someone else bear the burden of your security in life.

There really should be a list that pops up on the dispatchers screen when people like you call in for emergency services with the notation,

"WAIT FOR SECOND CALL NO SITUATION IS CONSIDERED AN INSTANT EMERGENCY TO THIS PERSON....this person rejects the use and carry of all emergency equipment or firearms that might be necessary to protect them. Dispatch only unarmed LEO's and/or fire equipment that is dry. Insure that all speed and traffic laws are strictly obeyed during response."

8. I have to defuse the racial angle on this before someone posts a picture of Eleanor Norton Holmes

At some point in their lives, many black women do what is called the big chop. They lose the weaves and wigs and cut their hair very short. It removes the damaged section, whether its too much straightener or other causes. Generally they go natural for a while. Some women never grow it out. Eleanor Norton Holmes is just such an example. https://www.google.com/webhp?sourceid=chrome-instant&ion=1&espv=2&ie=UTF-8#q=Eleanor+norton+holmes

12. Some men (black included) really do not like black women with short natural hair and are vocal about

it. Surprises me, especially today. Other black women will joint that chorus. To some, a black woman's hair is a political statement, and with some it is. Fair amount of social tension about that in the black community. Criticize a kind of black hairstyle, even if you are black, and you will have more people up in arms than BLM.

I've always taken people at face value, as individuals, not members of groups, racial, ethnic, or otherwise.

I tend to place people into one of two groups (not a joke):

asshole

or

not asshole

I've always viewed personal appearance as a matter of taste and convenience, and have always had difficulty understanding how or why someone would use their appearance to make a statement. It seems so shallow to me, as in it shortcuts the getting to know me for me process.

Her head is shaved because she identifies as a man. She is a trans.

That has been stated in numerous articles. That's why the articles are so confused -- they keep switching between calling her "she" and "he." She changed her name some years ago.

23. Defendant in Saco supermarket killing ordered held without bail



Connor MacCalister, 31, who identifies as a transgender male, is accused of randomly stabbing a 59-year-old mother and grandmother, Wendy Boudreau, at Shaw's on Wednesday.

In a complaint formally charging MacCalister with murder, which was filed Thursday, Maine State Police Detective Kristopher Kennedy said MacCalister, who lives in Saco one street away from the Boudreaus, told police he was “angry with life” and “wanted to get back at someone.”

Kennedy wrote that MacCalister went to the Shaw’s Supermarket in Saco with plans to kill several people and wanted to target an elderly woman who wouldn’t resist. Police have said MacCalister and Boudreau did not know each other.

Police said MacCalister saw Boudreau in the parking lot and followed her into the store. In the ice cream aisle, he grabbed her from behind and slit the woman’s throat, Kennedy wrote. One of her daughters and a grandchild were also shopping in the store with Boudreau but did not see the incident.

In her own words it pretty much says it all... Looking for someone unwilling to even fight back.

People get careless and don't maintain situational awareness. Public places are hard to deal with especially when we have been there a thousand times and take it for granted we are safe there.
I feel for the family of this lady. After a fair trial when they find herim guilty I would be glad to flip the switch, push the meds into herims arm or trip the trap door in the gallows.

51. herim is a word used in some LGBT circles that does not degrade but defines a person.

as both her and him or is used when identity is in question. I did not mean it in a degrading way but this does give us a more descriptive term for some people.

In saying this I learned this term from some LGBT family and friends. I have and do stand clearly and openly for LGBT rights.

I'm comfortable with this word in that it makes more since to me than most of the newly manufactured terms.

52. sam colt made size much less important. For men, and/or women.

That has been a reality for the last 1.5 centuries but some folks are just now figuring it out.

53. Mainers generally are no strangers to guns, but we don't carry them around for shopping,

movies, church, etc. Just hunting and maybe cc for self-protection. In fact, not too long ago some open carry nuts tried walking around the Old Port and into a coffee shop or something with a shotgun or rifle of some sort or other slung over his shoulder. Cleared the place out in no time. This is generally a very peaceful place to live, and also New Englanders tend to be reserved. Eg, not braggy or show-offy about their guns or anything else.

In any event, I doubt a gun would have helped her. The herim grabbed and slashed her from behind. She barely got out a scream. I'm going to guess one, if not both, carotid arteries. There were 2 emts shopping at the time, so she had immediate on-scene help. Probably the only thing that kept her from bleeding out while the ambulance came.

There's a candlelight vigil for her tonight.

54. it is sad and I'm sorry for her family.

I carry at work, open carry and legally CC at all other times. Except for federal buildings it is legal for me to carry almost anywhere in cali. They post their cute little signs but the signs are not backed by law. If for some reason they found out I was armed then can ask me to leave and press trespassing laws if I didn't but that is all they can do.

I guess getting a CCW because you think you need it and then leaving your handgun locked up at home most of the time would be like only having water in the local fire truck 2 days a week on rotating days.

I carry auto insurance every day, I carry medical insurance every day, I have the ability to protect myself when I'm working, mandatory, and I have the ability to protect myself in all other areas of my life every day.

Only being able to protect yourself on Monday Thursday and Sunday seems pretty stupid to me.
