Excuse me dear friends if my jumbles are a bit thoughts… I mean my thoughts are a bit jumbled. I have ALOT on my mind this morning. I really need to stop doing this, I do it to myself and it can either be seen as a character strength or a character flaw. I suppose it would be easier on me if I was like any other of the billion of Americans that watch the world from the inside out without stepping in to get their hands dirty. I could just sit on my couch and watch CNN and and be shocked and angry while waiting for the next episode of Dancing With The Stars (ick, actually I don’t watch that show).
But I don’t do that. I’m a selfish little bitch I guess you could say. I want to DO something. I want to make a DIFFERENCE. I see problems and I want to FIX them and it’s frustrating as hell cheering from the fucking sidelines and not seeing anything happen. So I have projects, I get ideas, so many that my proverbial plate is overflowing. But you know what? It’s my time and my energy that goes into this and I don’t think it really affects anyone negatively but myself. Buy hey, if one of my ideas/projects comes to fruition and it helps some people in some way THEN I can happily know that I DID make a difference to someone without trampling over anyone elses civil rights. The projects/ideas I have on this level does not constitute the changing of any laws or even the asking of anyones permission. These are projects I can put into place NOW to help those who want it and if you don’t, well no harm no foul.
So this Long Island serial killer case is pissing me off in more ways than one. Naturally I’m pissed that some fucker is running around amok (amok, amok, amok!) getting away with his shit. It pisses me off that a ‘budding’ serial killer is watching this and may think that he too could get away with this crap if he targets hookers. I mean come on. 10 and counting murders over years and they are just now starting to try and figure this guy out. It pisses me off that some bitches and bastards, though they aren’t saying it out loud, are not seeing this as it should be but are minimally excusing his behavior because come on.. it’s just hookers. And since hookers shouldn’t work as hookers because it is such a dangerous job.. well what do you expect? They believe they are safe because they don’t advertise for sex on Craigslist so therefore a serial killer is not after them and they expect they can just live their lives as normal every day business. TEN daughters have been MURDERED assholes. FOUR are ‘prostitutes’. We don’t know what the other six are. We can assume that they were also hookers but you know what they say about assuming. Besides which, IT DOESN’T MATTER. They were all somebody’s child you dicks! I’m sure their mom’s did not see prostitution as a viable occupation nor I’m sure did they approve of their child’s choice of work. How many of us can say that we do everything our mothers have told us to do or how many of us have followed our mothers footsteps and done everything we could on the basis of our parents approval? If this was the case, we would all be doctors, rocket scientists, and presidents. This is why I want the criminalization of this occupation STOPPED. It’s not that I would see it as a viable choice for making a living but shit happens and sometimes it’s the only choice you got. My daughter may go against all my recommendations and advice and find herself in a situation that I would not approve of and if she does I don’t want this happening to her. I want her to be able to communicate for safety, work indoors, and be able to go to the police without fear of arrest to be able to report the whack jobs she may encounter.
So what the hell is that you ask? It’s a damn start. If you have no one to call, call this. Anyone with a Google account can set up a free Google voice account so that is what I did. Write down the number, memorize the number, keep this number with you. Call this number prior to going on a date/appointment/whatever. It won’t ring, it will go straight to a voice mail where you can leave as much as or as little information that you want. Nobody is going to answer the phone and preach to you, belittle you, encourage you, or anything else. It’s just a place to leave a message so that SOMEONE, SOMEWHERE knows whats going on. Call the number and leave a message while you’re client is there so that THEY know someone has your back should something happen to you.
This is a far cry from what I actually would like to see but hell it’s a beginning and I know at least I have tried to do something to help. Even if it never gets used, at least I fucking tried. What have you done lately? If someone like Shannon Gilbert (the lady who is missing in Long Island whose search is what led to the discovery of the ten remains) had used something like this then perhaps the cops could have found her by now or be one step closer to finding the SOB that harmed her. You can’t call 911 when you’re dead but at least call this number prior to getting into a situation that is unknown or unfamiliar.
What happens. You call the number. Voice mail picks up. Leave a message as detailed as you want. A handful of others like myself have access to this account (in case something happens to me) and can monitor it in my absence. I do not have the money, time, or manpower YET to be able to return calls and do follow ups to check and see if you are ok. I will keep a log of ALL CALLS (even the heavy breathers/hey baby what are you wearing calls). I know there are going to be some fuckers out there that are going to think it’s just a riot to crank call a hooker hotline… peckerheads…
It’s a start. I still eventually would like to grown into a National Date Hotline. A 1-800 number that ANYBODY can call. Even women who aren’t hookers but use services like Match.com. I’d like to have phone operators 24/7/365 and be able to return calls after a date is supposed to have concluded to check on the welfare of the person. I would want this to be a totally FREE service though and I don’t know the costs, legal issues, privacy issues, equipment and all that crap to make a national hotline with phone operators so until then…
What do you think?
