NYPD captain not 'too worried' about spikes in rapes because they weren't 'true stranger rape'

Source: Raw Story

Captain Peter Rose, head of the 94th Precinct which covers Greenpoint, said he wishes the department could do more to help victims, but he added 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," he said before insisting the department is relatively unconcerned about the dramatic increase in rape and attempted rape in the neighborhood.

"It's not a trend that we're too worried about because out of 13 [sex attacks], only two were true stranger rapes," Rose said. At a Community Council meeting Wednesday night, Rose expanded on what types of rape he believes "are the troubling ones," concluding that people who participate in stranger rapes as opposed to acquaintance rape have "like, no moral standards."

"[The reported rapes are] not total abomination rapes where strangers are being dragged off the streets," Rose told the meeting, according to DNAinfo. "If theres 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."

5. So basically, if a guy knows you, it's not rape.

Great message to send in this already rape friendly culture.

12. I guess this means that domestic violence is no big deal, either

Because none of those cases involve "true stranger violence."

13. The police don't like to spend their efforts

on crimes that are difficult to prosecute...and stranger rape is a lot easier to prosecute than rape by an acquaintance.

15. Considering how few rape kits are processed, they don't want to prosecute rape

Whether by an acquaintance or by a stranger.

Why Haven't 70,000 Rape Kits Been Tested for DNA?

by Kate Snow and Rich McHugh
Jul 20 2015, 7:22 pm ET

Hundreds of thousands of rape kits that could identify serial sexual attackers are sitting untested by police departments across the country despite promises and federal funds to clear the backlog, a new agency-by-agency count suggests.

Documents obtained exclusively by USA TODAY Media Network, an NBC News partner, uncovered more than 70,000 neglected forensic evidence kits amassed by more than 1,000 police agencies. That's just a fraction of the nation's 18,000 police departments, so the total number of untested kits is likely far higher.

Thirty-four states haven't even counted how many untested kits are sitting on shelves, and the Justice Department has not established federal guidelines on how to handle sex-crimes evidence to comply with a law passed by Congress in 2013.

Once those kits are tested - Surprise! - more cases can be successfully prosecuted.

Serial Rapists Are More Common Than We Knew & Testing Rape Kits Is Only Part Of The Answer To Reducing Sexual Assault
By Megan Grant
Jun 7 2016

After testing nearly 5,000 rape kits in Ohio that had previously gone untested, we've learned yet another unsettling truth: Serial rapists are more common than we think. It's a problem perpetuated by the fact that we tend to look at rapes as single instances, instead of more closely examining the rapist and their behavior and history. And it is long past time something was done about it.

The initiative to test these thousands of kits, the Cuyahoga County Sexual Assault Kit (SAK) Pilot Research Project carried out by Case Western Reserve University (CWRU), has made for more than 250 convictions; furthermore, out of the 243 kits that were studied, 51 percent of them were connected to serial offenders, according to several press releases from CWRU. What's more, there's a noticeable pattern of behavior in these repeat rapists: They have more violent histories; more than a quarter of them had been arrested for sexual assault before; and well over half of them were arrested for sexual assault later on. Additionally, serial offenders more often commit acts of kidnapping, verbal and physical threats, and the use or threat of use of weapons.

The takeaway here is a scary one: These numbers indicate that a sexual offender has likely committed an assault in the past, or likely will in the future.

14. Moving right along

from "legitimate rape" to "rape by moral people"

Great. Will the trauma prevent pregnancy in these 'moral' cases as well?

18. This guy reminds me of "Lt Scanlon" in "Barney Miller."

Cop in "Internal Affairs" who spent the majority of his previous days on the force in vice.

Eventually he was caught harassing a woman.

19. WOW! This guy requires some mandatory remedial education

No dude, you are just plain wrong. I hope someone with some sense will re-educate this fool. I am sure he will be hearing from victim advocacy groups. Mightily.

20. When I was young and living in the

north eastern states, it was considered "asking for it" if you didn't have all doors and windows of your living quarters locked and someone broke in and raped you... in most cases it was the woman's fault for being female and in the wrong place at the wrong time, even in their own home. Some things never change. As long as men are in charge that is.

21. Someone who rapes and acquaintance has high moral standards? W.T.F?!?!?

People sexually assaulting non-strangers isn't troubling?

I guess people shooting acquaintances isn't as troubling as shooting a stranger either?
