I agree with Deirdre Macken’s letter in the Monday, 18 June, 2012, copy of your paper. I hope that the day we can carry and use mace legally to defend ourselves is almost here. I believe it is my human right to defend myself. Please help me to do so within the law.
Women in the Cayman Islands speak up loudly; we do not wan another tragedy to happen before we all start clambering for means to defend ourselves, which happens every time something bad happens to a woman. We just as quickly forget it after a few weeks. This is the 21st Century; let’s stop being so reactive and instead become forward minded and proactive. We also voted these ministers into power. Please, legislators, do something about this very soon.
Maybe if women had effective ways to protect themselves there wouldn’t be any need for social services to keep their home for battered women.
Second that idea
I am writing to support Ms Deirdre Macken’s letter to you about making mace legal. I, too, have been wondering about the outcome of our plea to be able to carry mace or pepper spray to defend ourselves from attackers.
To the women of the Cayman Islands, please join this fight. Speak up; the life you save might be your own.
