Suspicious Male on Jesusita Trail

To whoever is dense about the reality of hiking alone while being female: We can't leave "it" locked in the car with other things lowlifes feel entitled to take. Unless a woman is armed, as wary as a forward observer, and a good shot, she's vulnerable in a way males are not. It's a fact of life, not an opinion, that she's smaller, lighter and not as strong as non-geriatric males. Males hike to enjoy the peace, solitude and beauty, not as an exercise in intact survival. Slimebag sexual molesters make that impossible for women since if we are unwary, we are at risk--and it isn't from lions, tigers and bears. While the reporter may have mistakes intention, women can't be faulted for being cautious when a strange male is too 'friendly' in a deserted area: We ask ourselves if the guy would accost a male in the same way. If the answer is "no" then it's not paranoid to be suspicious and our duty to warn others. Both genders of good intent wish it were different--lots of loneliness around--but it is what it's always been, bad actors screw things up for everyone.

Good grief, who knows what the guy did or said to make the woman uncomfortable. Being a critic of her fear is uncalled for without the whole story. Roger gives us what he hears and then people jump all over him like he's holding back information.

Obviously there is more to this story then the one sentence headline and none of us really know what this guy is saying to these women. A trail up in the mountains is NOT the place that a normal guy would hit on a female, alone with no one around. How does anyone think that would be ok? I use rule #4 everywhere I go not because the government instills fear it’s from personal experiences with crazies.

Seriously? Since when is trying to talk to someone a crime? No matter how creepy, disrespectful, or vulgar - it may not be right, but it still ain't a crime!

Thank you Roger! Sometimes people lash out at your reporting and I stop and think, at least you take the time to do what you do. Many of these stories would go un-told even though they are important and most of us truly appreciate everything you do for edhat and this community in general :) have a great evening!!

Since it's a male following women around on a desolated hiking trail it is not against the law but it is suspicious and that is what the call was. Don't cry people have the right to call the police and request help when they see fit. When I hear such a call to let folks know what's going on I post it. I'm really sorry if that offends you but I would much rather do that then hear a crime was committed at that location. Good Day and Trump Bless...

OMG... are people so helpless they need to call the police when someone is being annoying? Good Ludd, I guess we do need a Nanny State to protect us from everything. (And yet we elect President someone who walks into teen aged girls' dressing rooms during a beauty pageant and talks about dating his daughter!! smh)

Sorry, 1984, no. Any male on trail (or anywhere) who attempts more than a casual nod and Good Morning is cause for a little discomfort if you are a woman, especially if the man is ignoring other men and only trying to chat up the women. Doesn't matter what the guy looks like. Women were a lot more trusting back in Bundy's day and one of the reasons we are now so wary and suspicious is because of guys like him. Rule #4: Never go anywhere without a knife.

Because Bundys are a dime a dozen? Or because we are fed fear and outrage 24/7/365. Still, having said that, I applaud your efforts to be prepared to defend yourself and hope you never have to use those measures to do so.

If you're handsome the attention is welcome. If you are ugly it's a crime. Remember Ted Bundy .
