Cop's Tip For Not Getting Raped By A Cop: 'Don't Get Pulled Over'

http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2014/09/23/oklahoma-police-rape_n_5870752.html

In response to the arrests of three law enforcement officials in Oklahoma for sexually assaulting women while on the job, an Oklahoma Highway Patrol trooper told women they can avoid getting raped by a cop if they simply follow traffic laws.

Raw Story first pointed out on Tuesday that Capt. George Brown, a state trooper, shared a few tips for women in an interview with local NBC News affiliate KJRH. Brown told the KJRH anchor that women can keep their car doors locked and speak through a cracked window if a trooper approaches them. If the trooper asks a woman to get out of the car, Brown said, she can ask "in a polite way" why he wants her to do that.

But the "best tip that he can give," the anchor said on air of her interview with Brown, "is to follow the law in the first place so you donít get pulled over."

In the past month, a Tulsa County Deputy, an OHP trooper and an Oklahoma City police officer have all been charged with repeatedly raping and sexually assaulting women while on the job.


In other news, every aspiring rapist now knows he can get away with it by simply passing through the Police Academy.
