    most brutes know the government will let them go eventually, but how far will they go knowing that may not get away with just raping someone and hours later get caught...in the back of their minds, they know there is a possiblity they may get "named" if not "shamed"..........

      @ Zukile: No matter where the woamn is or who she is with - It does give ANY man the right to rape her. Sick people think that way

      PLease don't down thumbs me unless you are rape victim and you know what you are talking about............ No WOMAN, no matter who she is, where she lives, what she wears, or work or walks - has the ffreedom to do so and NO ONE, has the right to rape her. NO WOMAN goes out there and ASKS to be raped -----

      Shelley Voster i agree with you _BUT_ as a woman i am aware of such things as rape and abuse, why did she go with him? a woman walking with a man late at night whom she does not know drinking dancing rubbing ext, you were not there, my woman intuition grants me the wisdom to know where i belong and where not

    This story is simple. The lady was not raped, the so called “rapist” promised the lady something in exchange of sex and at the end he did not fulfil his promise then she decided to go and open a rape case. I mean is there any adult out there who will take a walk with stranger.
