A young girl raped!!!

Philippines
December 11, 2006 10:35pm CST
I was talking with my friend of mine. We were discussing the law and women`s rights. She told me about this incident - a young girl was raped by a man posing as a plain clothes officer; he asked her to come to the police station when she and her male friend didn't have a driver`s license to show. He sent the boy off to get his license and asked the girl to accompany him to the police station. Took her instead to an isolated area where the horrendous crime was committed. Infact, the law clearly states that between 6 pm and 6am, a woman has the right to REFUSE to go to the Police Station, even if an arrest warrant has been issued against her. It is a procedural issue that a woman can be arrested between 6pm and 6 am , ONLY if she is arrested by a woman officer and taken to an ALL WOMEN police station. And if she is arrested by a male officer, it has to be proven that a woman officer was on duty at the time of arrest. It is good for us to know our rights. To what extent it comes of use remains to be seen in any situation. But as they say, knowledge is power. Just thought I`d share this with you. I did not know this and am sure lot of us will not know this- please be innformed..... And pass on this info to whom all u know.......

Honestly, I would have to see some concrete proof of this law. I've heard that ANYONE, not just a woman, has the right to confirm "flashing lights" behind him/her before stopping at night. Simply because there have been reports of "fake" police lights on a car. People were using them to pull over people on a highway, and once stopped, they were raped, murdered or robbed. If this happened, and it's dark, and you're unsure about the "Police car" behind you, you have the right to call 911 from your cell, and confirm that there is indeed an officer in that area before you stop. I've not heard that resisting arrest between ANY hours is deemed "Legal." Besides that, for a simple driving violation, there would never be a civilian clothed police officer on duty for such things.

The "fake police officer" scam is pretty common in South Florida, and you're right, you can either call 911 or the State Troopers on your cell and verify if there are real officers on patrol nearby. Or you can go to the nearest police station!

So terribly sorry to hear about your friend, I hope she is doing okay. I didn't know of this law and thank-you so very much for bringing it to my attention. Hopefully others will read this as well. I had heard something that a women could only be searched by a female officer but did not know anything other than that. I drive legally at all times but it wouldn't surprise me in todays society to be stopped for no actual reason other than to be harrassed or as the girl you described something much worse. I will send emails out tomorrow about this, do you mind if I copy and paste this into the email? Have a great day!

That's just horrendous!! You are right about the rights thing, but that's just too ideal.... don't you think so?? I mean, even if you know your rights, the person who commits a heinous crime like this will have a retort for you!! @dreadstar- no offence, but i don't think that blaming the category of policemen is the solution to the problem. Agreed that there's a lot of corruption as far as the 'lawmakers' and law 'enforcers' are concerned, but just because there are a few bad eggs, you should not assume that the entire basket is rotten.....

That is a sad story. I never heard about such a law though. I know a Police Officer that lives up the street, we gave him a call after reading this and he said he just arrested a 19 year old girl the other day at 3:00 AM and his partner was another male Officer. Maybe the law doesn't apply for all states? I know he said that he can't search a female and that she is searched at the Station by another female, but they are able to arrest at any time of day or any time of night.

so i guess this is what is true though. but really, what is the protection of a woman in the hands of a male officer during off peak hours??? im wondering too..

A woman cop can also rape a young girl. It's not always men. It's a hard situation. Maybe some day they will get their stuff together and figure out a more safe way.

How horrible. I was reading an article where it was being discussed how rapists are buying polic uniforms (I guess from ebay & stuff) and using that false autority to gain access into a woman's home while she's all alone & rape her.

I know that you used to be able to go in and purchase police items from the same place where the police purchase all of their uniforms and such and was never questioned if your were one or not. But some places do ask that you verify that you are who you say you are. My father is a sheriff reserve member and had to purchase some items and they made him show proof that he was a reserve. I didn't know about the 6 pm things either but thanks for posting.

Sometimes its actually a real police person making these crimes. They don't need to go and buy a uniform, they already have one.

a very sad story. but i find those laws interesting..... of course, at one point or another they are bent in the favor of the person doing the arrest (in the case you presented, especially).

I have never heard this law before. I thought it was that a women officer only was aable to do the pat downs on women. Very interesting. I hope your friend is seeking help with this terrible situation.

same here, i didn't know about the 6-6 thing..but i'll probably check with the police station if i ever have a chance to. i do know that an officer can not take you in just because you don't have a drivers license on you. if you have no previous record, they can just ticket you and call in your name or ss# and find out you have a valid drivers license...my husband taught me that. i also know that you do not even have to open the window or leave your vehicle while recieving a ticket from an officer. and never get into a patrol car unless you're under arrest...if you feel uncomfortable about the situation, i would suggest having a cell phone and calling the police station and asking about the officer, making sure that he/she is a real officer, call in the name and badge number. if you do this, and the guy was a fake, at least you can report it to the police. its horrible these days how some people pretend to be police or firefighter. i have young children, and i wanted to teach them that going with a police officer is safe, but in these days, i can never be sure.
