End of the World Watch: Mentally Disabled Woman Raped on City Bus


While the bus was driving. . .

Police on Thursday asked for the public’s help to find a man wanted in connection with an alleged rape on a public bus in Culver City, which was captured by surveillance cameras.

An 18-year-old woman with the mental capacity of a 10 year old told police she was raped about 5 p.m. Wednesday after she boarded Bus Line 217 at La Cienega and Jefferson boulevards, according to the LA County Sheriff’s Department.

The alleged aggressor boarded the bus the same time as the woman.

“The suspect followed her to the rear of the bus where she sat down,” sheriff’s officials said. “The suspect, without any warning or provocation, stood and faced her while positioning himself between her legs and sexually assaulted her.”

After about 10 minutes, the man, pictured below on bus surveillance camera, stopped his alleged assault and exited the bus at Sepulveda Boulevard and Slauson Avenue, the route’s last stop.

“She did not scream or shout out. She was too afraid to do so,” said Sgt. Dan Scott with LA County Sheriff’s Department.

Somehow our side — which would probably vote to castrate rapists if such a bill were to come up for a vote — became the party that endorsed rape in 2012. There’s a real “war on woman” out there and the women are in danger.
