WHY I CARRY: Chilling Video Shows 22 Year Old Woman Being Abducted in Philadelphia
Here is another one of our “Why I Carry” stories. These stories, unlike our defensive gun use stories, take a look at situations that may have turned out very differently if the victim(s) had been armed. These stories are the “other side of the coin” so to speak and serve as an important reminder as to why it’s important to take responsibility for your own personal safety.
In this case we have a 22 year old woman, identified as Carlesha Freeland Gaither being abducted off the streets of Philadelphia on the way home from a party.
The chilling video shows Gaither being approached by a male suspect and being dragged away.
Gaither reportedly managed to kick out the back windows of the car she was forced into, but was unable to escape her captor.
The suspect is described as being a 5’10” African American male with a medium/heavy build, approximately 25-30 years in age.
There is a $15,000 reward for information that leads to an arrest and conviction in the case.
As always, I have to point out that a firearm may or may not have helped prevent or stop this crime. However, I prefer to have options whenever possible over simply begging for my life.
