"A United Kingdom student described feeling 'vulnerable' and 'violated' after being a victim of 'needle spiking' at a nightclub in Nottingham."

"Hers is one of many cases reported across Britain, in which an injection is administered to someone without their knowledge or consent, usually in a nightclub or bar setting — sometimes through the clothes.... Campaigners say they are seeking 'tangible' changes to make nighttime venues safer, so no woman has to endure hours of memory blackouts, or worse.... Nottinghamshire police say no other offenses, including sexual assault, have been linked to the reports of being injected...."

No sexual assault reports from women who emerge from an hours-long blackout.

This is horrifying. Someone very dear to me was drugged and raped at a party so I would recommend the death penalty for this sort of thing...

Really. As a person who spent many years running bars and playing in bars, I'm not sure I'd feel good about hanging out in nightclubs today if I was a good looking young woman or man. There are too many nutballs out there feeling free to do as they want. And with good reason. There's rarely any ramifications for anyone's actions these days.

Best stick to basic pubs/taverns where men are men and sheep are afraid.

Wu-Han-Flu vaccination squad?

Yeah, it is a gross violation to force people to be injected with stuff against their will.

Have no idea why any female in today's world would risk going to a bar or nightclub. Especially in Great Britain!

But maybe I'm just biased here.

They're not going to know about people take pictures or video, or groping.

But bigger violations leave marks that are still there a couple of hours later

I'm not saying it's not happening, but it has all the hallmarks of a good hysteria. Nevertheless, it's a good reminder that with the sociopaths out there, there may be better uses of our time than "combating" global warming while China breaks ground on record numbers of new coal power plants.

@Yancey, I see what you did there.
I never liked bars in my youth, but I was a cheap back then.

Where else are you going to meet a good-looking mujahideen fighter?

Then what would be the point?
It is a distressing idea, but as a practical matter, I don't see how it can be accomplished surreptitiously.

Same as we never find evidence of election fraud because the evidence is destroyed and looking at elections after they happened is *crazy*.

By the same logic as there has been no election fraud, these women haven't been raped.

You can't donate blood for a while, 3 months I believe, after being pricked by a needle.

The three biggest lies in Texas.
1. I won this belt buckle at the rodeo.
2. That truck over there is paid-for.
3. No, honest M'am, I just helping the sheep over the fence.

I would like to know- wtf is happening to society? Is it a loss of moral guidance- loss of theological grounding- that causes strangers to harm e/other w/out a pang of conscience? Is it drugs? All of these younger(&maybe not so young)selfishly striving for relevance, for attention. From whom? I can’t wrap my head around senseless acts of random terror. Knockout games, pushing people onto subway rails- jabbing people w/needles containing God only knows-

Society needs an intervention:0(

I am skeptical.
Until someone is charged and convicted of doing this, I'll remain skeptical.
Given the amount of extreme alcohol consumption that seems to occur in British bars and nightclubs, resulting in people passing out, blacking out, and not remembering what happened the night before, why would a predator go to this much trouble?
And, to ask the obvious question, is such a thing even plausible?

Aussie Pundit said...

Also - here's a reason to be skeptical - according to the article , "Campaigners say they are seeking "tangible" changes to make nighttime venues safer, so no woman has to endure hours of memory blackouts, or worse."

Nobody has been charged. No crime is being investigated.

Here's an idea. Find out if a crime of this nature has actually been committed, before inflicting well-meaning "changes" on small business owners.
