Glop-Top!v2YqWLQgu.Country code: ponychan.png, country type: customflag, valid: 9135Locked[View All]

I put a guy in jail today using the power of pony.

No, really.

STARTS OUT LIKE THIS: First off, I gotta point out I'm a girl. Not out of DOOT TOOT attention seeking but as an essential part of the story. So I'm on the bus, sitting next to the window and riding along and etc. Guy sits next to me, no biggie.

Then I feel what I think is his hand on my flank, squeezing. So I'm a fluttershy, and I give him the benefit of the doubt. I scoot forward on my seat, away from his hand, just in case his hand was asleep and he didn't realize or whatnot. Nope, his hand moves forward and continues to grope me. I'm VERY upset right now due to flashbacks from when I was a kid to other groping incidents and I'm NOT a happy camper.

So I stand up to try to move, and his hand is STILL on my flank and he moves his legs so he blocks my way. The bus stops at the transfer center and the guy walks off, giving me a smirk. I'm NOT happy, not at all. So I decide to tell the bus driver.

The bus driver starts to blame ME (seriously) and asks OH WELL WHY DIDN'T YOU SCREAM AND HOLLER (because I was scared and flashbacking to a rape as a kid?) and WHY DIDN'T YOU MOVE UGH (I tried to move, I moved away twice and tried to walk away from the seat but he wouldn't let me). I gave her a detailed description of the dude (seriously, he was dressed REALLY distinctively, to the point it surprised me) and pointed him out since he was standing right outside the bus.

I wasn't going to say anything to her but one thing that these silly ponies has given me the courage to do is to stand up when somepony wrongs me. I ended up missing my transfer to a bus to take me to a very important job placement interview to give this report because I knew it was the right thing to do, if not for me then for other ladies. The driver's response? She told me that she refused to take a report because I didn't "move" and "scream" and that it was my fault anyway and etc.

Needless to say, by now I am crying and I get off and take my bus home. Now, I go home and I think and I wait for a few hours because in the front of my mind is her telling me that nothing could be done about this and he'd get away scott free. But I remember reading about other bus groping incidents in the news and I think that enough is goshdarn enough and I call the Metro people themselves. Once again, it was thinking of both Fluttershy's bravery when standing up to monsters, Applejack's admitting she needed help, and a dash of pinkie giggling at the ghostie that got me to gather my own strength for this.

I was smart enough to take exact details of the line, the time I was riding it, where it stopped exactly, and the name of the exact bus. They sent over an officer, and while I was blubbery and crying the cop was shockingly nice and even hugged me. He'd be a total Applejack, all about getting things done while being considerate as can be. He even offered to hug me twice! And he NEVER made it feel like it was my fault.

He gave me my case number and a source of information and told me I could call him if it ever happened again, if I ever saw the groper again, or if I needed somepony to talk to so he could give me some more resources. I waved goodbye and he left and I felt a bit better.

No less than FIFTEEN, kid you not, FIFTEEN minutes later the officer knocks on the door.

They found the dude and needed me to identify him. Apparently he was STILL hanging out at that bus transfer center, just...doing nothing, I guess? I didn't ask. I went down, and it was DEFINITELY him. It was a little spooky, but that ghostie couldn't hurt me, and if he thought he could he had another thing coming.

After he's identified and sent off I end up being told that he has a series of warrants out for his arrest and that he'll be in jail and such.

So, ponychan, today I was told by somepony that I can't do anything when somepony gropes/molests me, and instead I went NO WAY and did something. Hopefully he won't be groping any other ladies anytime soon.

This is the first time a dude who has done something bad to me (I've been in physically abusive relationships and molested/raped) has been brought to justice, and it feels GOOD, pony.

Not sitting around, letting crimes happen and being happily victimized no matter who tries to get in the way? Dang right that's standing up for yourself.

Don't listen to all these messed up chumps, OP, you're a top notch lady.

And that guy was obviously a crazy career criminal. Foolish little kids don't realize what life can be like. Way more complex than all that. No doubt you made the right decisions, and don't let anything keep you from that in the future, no matter how many crazy people there are, on buses or on image boards.

(Lurker first time posting.)

OP please don't take the parasprites to heart at all.

Years ago (in the mists of time) myself and a bunch of other young bronies were altar boys at a local church. And you can guess what happened there.

But even though it happened to all of us we were too afraid to stand up. I'm sure that several other ponies were harmed after we passed through the barn and that will always be in the back of our minds.

You stood up and told somepony and made a difference. Don't let anypony tell you otherwise. You did a good thing.

Not every pony can be a fighter or hardened by battle. Some are just not made that way inside. That's why we have those around that _are_ made that way.

Think of it this way...the suggestion has been that you should have used a weapon or some other direct tool.

Well the police are a tool and a weapon both if used correctly. And I think you used them quite well. :-)

Dear princess celestia,
Today I learnt that there can be good parasprites such as hitler, who is even appreciated through his German accent posts and funny sayings. I also learnt that there can be bad parasprites like violent J, who provided an impractical solution to something one might come across everyday. (I mean, what are the chances of a late teens, maybe early 20s girl kicking the flank of a full grown man? No offense OP). Being a guy, I-WAIT. FUCK.
TAKE 2
Dear parasprites
Dude she did stand up for herself. She called the cops so the guy can get punished and learn his lesson rather than suffering in silence and making the guy think that it's okay to grab flank.
Your faithful-A SHIT I GIVE UP

Right, so if I get mugged by a guy with a gun it is TOTALLY my fault that I didn't buy a gun and a bullet-proof vest so I can kick the mugger's flank.

If I give him all the money I have and report to the police later I am suddenly NOT standing up for myself because I somehow did not preemptively expect a crime to happen to my person? REALLY?

Somehow, expecting the world to be civilized and the police to do their job is a sign of weakness?

Get the fuck out of here.

To OP, you did the right thing and stood up for youself.

Too many victims of such crimes just let it go because they simply want to forget it and move on.

This shitty society has somehow convinced people that crying "RAPE" and actually doing something about it is being "fussy". Well screw them.

Not to mention in the case of rape they always try and blame the victim in some way: were they drunk, wearing a mini skirt etc etc. It's total bullshit rape culture.

I think people are scared of the idea that some people are just bad people, so they pin the blame on the victim because they don't like the insecurity that comes from acknowledging that not everypony is good/civilised.

that is the most retarded statment anypony has ever made......ever. its a non-lethal weapon deaths from tazers are few and far between and are usually because of heart conditions or seceptibility to heart conditions. so basically dont taze grandpa and if you have a heart condition dont grope the op's flank on a bus in the future. because i am sure that by now she has seen that my logic is irrefutable and has purchased a tazer from a licensed dealer. she will soon recieve training with the device and never worry about sexual assault again. dont thank me OP thank your self for being awesome.

this

We stood up for Glop, and i believe she knows that we are behind her and we are dissapointed and upset with Violent J, Mudflips, Angel, and other parasprites.

but now we established what is right and what is wrong, we must not harass them anymore for that goes against our brony way. We love and tolerate, and while we cannot let parasprites harass one of our friends, we must also remember that harassing them just makes us the angry and spiteful ones.

let us put our anger aside and remember what this post is about. The bravery of Glop and her wise decisions that brought down a real criminal.

There's a big difference between hanging around in a gang area without any protection/caution (or as you call it 'seeing all roses and candy') and riding a public transportation without a potentially lethal weapon because you SOMEHOW didn't preemptively predict that you were going to be groped.

Is it really too much to ask for a safe/crime-free public transportation?

Maybe we should install CCTVs and machine gun turrets in all public transportation system to preemptively prevent crime since it's SOO unreasonable to expect people to not behave like a sex-crazed animal in public area.

better to have it and not need it than need it and not have it. plus in OP's situation she would not have needed or wanted to use the tazer seeing as the man was touching her her would have been shocked as well. all she would have had to do is show it to the assliant and activate it. tazers are fucking scary if it was me or anypony with half a brain they would stop and back the fuck up damn quick.

Get off her flank, seriously. Ponychan isn't 4chan's /b/. There is a "you need more than two brain cells to rub together" requirement. The RPing insults to somepony who had shit from the past to deal with is flat out pathetic.

Not everypony is the same nor does everypony handle a situation the same way. Shoot, one of my closest friends had a sickfuck do things with her as a kid and now (she's 21), she gets uncomfortable with things many people would enjoy such as being cuddled by somepony because of what happened to her as a little girl - it's sad. Talk is cheap, especially on the internet. The whole "You should have" or "I would have" is hot air, you're not fooling anypony except maybe yourself. Honestly, some of the posts in this thread make that idiot bus driver seem intillegent. And that's saying something.

OP, you deserve kudos. Even if your missed meeting was important, you would have felt sick inside (or even more so) the rest of the day knowing this creep was still out there. Who knows, you may have saved a girl from being a rape victim by getting him arrested. While you can't change the past, you can be stronger in the future and you proved just that.

I'm glad you live in a safe neighborhood. I'm happy for you. I really am. Jealous even. I live in a country where the police are just as frightening to be around as a gang (raping extorting sons of bitches). I have a beautiful wife, and in a couple of months I'll have a beautiful daughter. I know how men think, and I've seen the depths their depravity can reach. My wife's already been mugged more than once on her way home from work, and I'm grateful beyond words that money was all they wanted. Do you have any idea how that feels? You can judge me all you want, but I'm not going to let my daughter grow up without SOME semblance of protection. I'm not trying to burst anypony's bubble here, I still think OP is a boss, but expecting the world to be civilized, I just can't wrap my head around that idea anymore.

I expect the world to be civilized not because I have an idealistic outlook on human nature, but because we have a very intricate system of justice we pay money for that is intended to prevent just that.

I am not saying arming yourself in the face of danger is stupid. I am saying just because OP here didn't have a weapon on her doesn't make her actions after that (reporting to the police) somehow less valid.

And no, I don't live in a 'safe' neighborhood. No one does. All neighborhoods have varying degree of criminal activity. Pretending that criminals don't exist doesn't change anything.

Yeah, sorry it turned out like this, but i\'m shutting this thread down because some of you don\'t get it. This isn\'t how we do things around here. When someone comes and posts a story about what happened in their life, and goes even further to try and convey a message to her fellow users, telling them not to be afraid to go to the authorities, you don\'t just belittle her in her own thread, and continue to do so until it\'s expiration. In fact, you don\'t even post at all. I have seen some people trying to defend themselves with the \"oh, this doesn\'t belong here, move it\", well if you wanted us to move it, maybe you should, oh I don\'t know REPORT IT?! Not once did I see a report to have this thread moved, and you still continued to carry on about it!And furthermore,even if you are just trying to help by posting \"hey, don\'t be a bitch, go and stand up for yourself next time you dumba­ss\", think of what it would be like if you were the OP, and you had just gotten slandered like that, for doing something you believed in, or thought was right. You wouldn\'t like that, now would you? Just don\'t do it, and try to be more compassionate for someone who had just gotten molested on public transportation./thread /discussion /shut up, whatever. It seems some of you have forgotten just about the first thing the Admin had posted on the front page, \"Don\'t bring the drama here, keep it out\". Try not to cause trouble anymore, okay? Being a moderator is hard enough as it is, and seeing threads like these just melt into pits of despair and cries to ban just makes it all the more stressful and hard to do your job correctly.Also, I want no one to start any threads about or pertaining to this thread in the future; it has caused enough drama to have it\'s own ED article. First offence will get deleted and second will get you a ban.Archived for future lesson to be learned, and for this post to be remarked upon.Keep the drama out of here.
