NYPD Warns Women About Skirts in Brooklyn Sex Attack Probe | NBC New York Women in a Brooklyn neighborhood on edge over a spate of sex attacks are being told by police that wearing skirts and dresses might not be a good idea. The surprising message from the NYPD is not being taken well. "There have been reports that the women attacked were all wearing skirts," said Jessica Silk, a Safe Slope founder. "Unfortunately this might be a common link between the women that were attacked but the message shouldn't be that you shouldn't wear a skirt. The message should be that, 'Here are ways that you can protect yourself.'" The ways that the women could protect themselves is to carry a gun and blow the two hispanic men doing the raping away. Problem solved. Trash taken out.
