A Bad Day For The Ladies

Los Angeles, Irvine and South Gate, CA

A woman was hit in the head in a vehicle to vehicle shooting in Lafayette Square in Culver City. She was taken to Cedars-Sinai where she died.

An Irvine woman, Janelle Peralta, 29, died in the hospital Thursday after being admitted, drenched in blood, after a fight with her live-in boyfriend. Both of them had multiple stab wounds, and the boyfriend, Javier Colon, 33, is listed in serious condition after extensive surgery. It's not clear exactly what happened, or who, in fact, was the aggressor. Police have booked him on suspicion of attempted murder, and as things get clearer, they're thinking maybe homicide. Their 14-month-old child wasn't at the scene, so that's something, I suppose.

And Jose Lopez, was arrested in Madera County, California, on suspicion of killing his girlfriend, Rosa Ramos, who has been missing since June 23rd. She was last seen driving a red 1993 Ford Thunderbird that has been found in Madera. Of Rosa, however, there is no sign.

Women are far more likely to be victims of domestic violence, abuse and sexual assault. Most of these tend to come from intimate partners, but not always. So, let's do something about that, shall we? Here are some links to places that might be able to help.
And, as always, ladies, please get some firearms, martial arts, and dirty tricks training. Mace is fine, sure, but a can of Aquanet and a Zippo ends an argument pretty goddamn fast.

Bravo! Thanks for the support and for passing along some good sound advice. Unfortunately, the Culver City thing happened not far from my home.
