NYPD captain says he is 'not too worried'
about rape increase as only rapes by strangers
are 'the troubling ones'

Quote:
The New York Police Department and City Hall have apologised for an “insensitive” comment by a precinct captain that only rapes committed by strangers are “the troubling ones”.

Captain Peter Rose said he was “not too worried” about a 62 per cent uptick in rape cases in Greenpoint, Brooklyn, in 2016 as only two of the rapes were by strangers.

“Every rape should be investigated. I wish we could do more,” he said, as reported by DNAinfo. “It really becomes a balancing act for the investigators. Some of them were Tinder, some of them were hookup sites, some of them were actually coworkers. It's not a trend that we're too worried about because out of 13 [sex attacks], only two were true stranger rapes.

”If there's a true stranger rape, a random guy picks up a stranger off the street, those are the troubling ones. That person has, like, no moral standards.”

He added that the rapes in Greenpoint were “not total-abomination rapes where strangers are being dragged off the streets.”

Speaking of troubling moral standards...

This is the type of ass hole appointed to law enforcement nowadays.

Reminds me of a Marion Barry Quote...

I know exactly what this captain was saying. Although he should not have said it, his sentiment is correct from the point of view of law enforcement. From a law enforcement standpoint, you want to catch the bad guys. It's far harder to catch the random acts of violence than it is when the victim knows, can identify and will testify against the perpetrator.

I highly doubt this captain was in any way minimizing one type of rape. He just spoke without thinking. Unfortunately, we live in a world where people are so quick to add meaning to other's words with no context or experience to speak of.

I call horseshlt if people think a rape victim will just hop up and turn in her attacker. I guess law enforcement will hire any d**kh**d who claims to be also a psychologist. The captain spoke stupidly and without thinking.

What would you expect from a city run by de Blasio or any other big city liberal?

That is what I think when I look at states run by Republicans.

Boring deflection.

If we wanted to go that route, it's your party that has the bad history regarding rape problems.

While I understand your inclination to stoop to mindless party allegations, you are truly in a glass house handing other people stones to throw back at you on this issue...

Are mindless party allegations the same as mindless right wing allegations and mindless left wing allegations?
