Rape. It’s a word nobody ever wants to claim for their own experience. Everyone knows what the horror of that word means. But there is something even worse than that, which this book explores, which is being raped and not being believed by the authorities when report the crime.

A False Report, by journalists T Christian Miller and Ken Armstrong, is a true crime book about a serial rapist. Marc O’Leary, a former member of the military, was stalking women in Washington State and Colorado from at least 2008 to 2011, when he was finally caught. His modus operandi is the stuff of urban nightmares: he drove around neighbourhoods, searching for women who lived alone, in poorly-lit ground

This Guy Is Pissed About All the Mysterious Free Pizza He Keeps …

For two and a half weeks, Guido Grolle’s phone has been ringing off the hook with calls from pizza shops, letting him know he’s got a big order on the way. His inbox fills up with emails telling him what time his pies are coming through. But every time a delivery guy pops by his office to drop off the za, Grolle tells them, for the millionth goddamn time, that he never ordered a thing.

According to Nuhr Rachrichten, the lawyer in Germany has been getting pie after pie, dropped off at various times of the day, without having ordered them himself. More than 100 pizzas from multiple different shops around Hamburg have made their way to Grolle’s office, and he still can’t figure out why.

It may be a dream for most people—getting pizza delivered daily to your desk for free, without having to pick up the phone.

BLACK cab rapist John Worboys allegedly boasted about using the date rape drug on unsuspecting women years before he was jailed for a string of horrific attacks.

Taxi rapist John Worboys boasted about using date rape drugs to stripper pal

Black cab rapist John Worboys confided in a stripper pal that he gave women date-rape drugs, years before the string of horrific attacks he was jailed for.

Dave Hanson says Worboys even urged him to try drugging women himself with GHB, saying chillingly: “They won’t even know, they’ll do whatever you want. I’m telling you, it works.”

He said of Worboys: “He was never short of women. But he wanted the ones he couldn’t have.”

Dave admitted he now wishes he had gone to the police at the time, as it could have stopped the rapist in his tracks.

He said: “The way he described things to me I didn’t feel I had enough details.

“But I’ll do all I can now to ensure he doesn’t get out of prison. I’ll tell the police what he told me – it’s not right that he should get away with it.”

Mich. Teen Found Dead Before Testifying About Rape | PEOPLE.com

A Michigan teen who was found dead last month was scheduled to testify against her alleged rapist in court later this year.

Mujey Dumbuya, 16, was last seen alive leaving her home to catch the bus to school on Jan. 24. When her family learned she never made it to school, they reported her missing, CBS reports.

Four days later, Dumbuya’s body was found by a couple in Kalamazoo, 50 miles away from her high school near Grand Rapids. Although authorities have not released how Dumbuya died, her family believes she was targeted, according to CBS.

Aly Raisman: Olympic coach ignored complaints about pedophile doctor

(JTA) — Aly Raisman, an American Olympic medalist, said that her former coach likely knew but said nothing of molestation allegations against serial pedophile and former gymnastics national team doctor Larry Nassar.

Raisman, who is Jewish, spoke Thursday in an interview with CNN.

“One of my teammates described in graphic detail what Nassar had done to her the night before. And John Geddert was in the car with us and he just didn’t say anything,” she said of the ex-Olympics top coach. The conversation occurred in 2011 — five years before Nassar got busted, Raisman added.

Geddert abruptly resigned last month after USA Gymnastics suspended him as part of an internal investigation, the New York Daily News reported. The daily’s attempts to reach the 60-year-old gymnastics were not immediately successful, the report said.

Geddert came under criminal investigation himself earlier this month, according to the Daily News, following complaints about him

Cops should have told us about burglar before he turned rapist …

People from a neighborhood where a burglar has struck three times say the police should have warned them before the culprit went from making sexual threats to rape.

“Yeah, I’m a little concerned,” said Michelle Richer, 56, a 30-year resident of the Hollywood neighborhood. “There should have been a warning or something, a phone call. They do it for everything else.”

The assault happened at about 1:30 a.m. Thursday when a man with his face covered by a cloth broke into the back of a home on Plunkett Street, demanded money and raped a woman.

“That’s very scary,” said Kate Calabretta, 39, who lives two streets away from where the rapist struck, and who was unaware of the attack. “It’s important to let people know so they can take extra precautions. It could be something simple like a flyer on the door.”
