Murderers shouldn’t murder.
Car jackers shouldn’t car jack.
Muggers shouldn’t mug.
Thiefs shouldn’t steal.
Rapists shouldn’t rape.
But they all do.
Please, for the love of god, know how to protect yourself. Be aware of your surroundings and don’t rely on human beings to not be really, really terrible.
In a perfect world we wouldn’t have to worry about these things, but our world is far from perfect.
Dash Con was a major scam where the scam artists raised $17,000 for a convention and then didn’t actually pay any of the headlining guests to come. So basically there’s a room with a bouncy house and a ball pit and a game console and tv. Those who paid for reserved seats for the big panels got an extra hour in the ball pit.
My prayer is that when I die, all of hell rejoices that I am out of the fight.
