“I want to throw that bitch on the ground right here and fuck her up”

Trigger Warning!

I was riding the Red Line in Chicago when two drunk men got on. You could tell they were both drunk and high. One had an alcoholic drink in his hand, and they both had joints behind an ear.

They started swearing and talking about the woman on the train. The said some really vulgar things. They pointed to me and talked said, “I want to throw that bitch on the ground right here and fuck her up. Teach her her place. I’ll nail her right here. Look at her sitting there like she is better than us. I’ll fuck her up.”

They said the things along the same line about several females on the train. Several times when females would exit the train (the men where standing by the doors) they would grab they woman’s but or breasts. I did notice they were armed. It really shook me up.

    Despicable! seriously, whats wrong with some people?! You can report it, no one should be subjected to that kind of behaviour when travelling on a train!

  2. Golden Silence says:

    I agree with Clarice. You should report it. Not only were they targeting women on the train with their pathetic behavior, they had marijuana and guns on them! These criminals deserve to be behind bars.

    That is very scary – echoing the comments above, do report it. They should at least be able to check their CCTV to identify these guys.

    I’m so sorry that happened to you. It is painful to read that women are going through these types of incidents in their day to day lives due to violent, hateful men. I say yes as well-these criminals should be reported. My guess is they already have a criminal record.

    Hey everyone, I’m the one the sent the story in. First of all, sorry for all the typos in it, I was pretty shook up when I wrote it.

    The hard part about reporting it would be that I don’t live in that area. Actually, I was only in Chicago on a class trip with my university. I had no idea how to go about reporting it at the time, And so I didn’t write down the train number or anything.

    But it was good to read from other people that agreed that what happened was not ok. It really scared me. and then I felt silly for being so scared.

    thanks again for this blog, and for the comments.
