I absolutely agree with this post. If one looks very carefully at all the different levels of law enforcement, CA, judiciary they are connected to UVA, UVA Law, directly or indirectly such as being alumni, or through spouses, or children, lecturing, employment etc. None of it is at arms length and it's very incestuous and insidious. There are even the favored defense attorneys. That's why they don't fear any retribution or law suits. UVA owns Charlottesville.
otherwise Ch'ville would be a Culpeper or Waynesboro.

And you make it sound like the Police Departments are the Rapists....

Do you really think that all men are simply sex-driven machines that they cannot control themselves if a girl is wearing provocative and revealing clothes? Do your really think that we don't have self-control? Men and women should respect each other's right to not participate if they don't want to. Period. It doesn't matter if she's flirting a lot and wearing skimpy clothing, if she says she doesn't want to have sex, NO ONE should make her. And just because a woman is wearing revealing clothes does not mean she deserves to get raped. Don't ever say that again. Women should be allowed to dress however they want and not be afraid of getting attacked.
Why DOES a girl were "provocative and revealing clothes"? Is it to entice males to look at her and pursue a relationship with her? If she doesn't want to be treated as an object of a male's desire, then she shouldn't provoke it. That being said, if she says no, it's no, period. Dressing in an overtly provocative manner is going to get attention, mostly attention that is not wanted. As stated by others, rape is about power and objectifying, not sex.

I totally sympathize with the victims. I came to Charlottesville in 1991. Since then I have heard Charlottesville news media report on rape cases. In 1998, I joined a group of males and females match from Down Town Pavilion to the Rotunda, if that is what she is called, to show support for the victims.
I was in Maryland in 2008, turning on the Fox News Cable Channel when I saw the Charlottesville Chief of Police being interviewed about rape victims. Yes, it is an epidemic and it has to be solved. All the issues that cable channels interview people on, the only thing Charlottesville has to report to the world is a serial rapist that has been on the loose for over twenty-years, then it must have been an issue of concern.
I do believe that one can show his or her importance by bullying another person, enjoying from their sufferings or putting them down just to feel good about oneself. This are some of the reasons people victimize others as is done in these rapes. The Police cannot eradicate it. The only way to eradicate it is by teaching self-esteem to allow the victimizers to know and believe in something good about themselves and others.
According to Sharon Supriya, "In the United States, a woman is sexually assaulted or raped every six minutes . 85% of victims know their attacker and 84% of rapes will go unreported."
The following are some of the reasons given for rape:

Did I touch a raw nerve? Actually did not say the PD are rapists. I would still like to believe most cops do a good job. I'm talking about how the hierarchy has to turn a blind eye because UVA wields much influence and power. It's amazing how fast that non-UVA rapist was arrested a few weeks ago but they're still looking for the blue-eyed UVA student for the forcible groping whch was a day apart. There's a different standard for UVA perps. That uva student ALSTON got away with murder. the Securro rapist (ex-uva student) was supposed to serve 10 years and then due to a paperwork mess-up walked after 6 months. read Securro's book. case after case. The only exception has been Huguely because of national coverage but we shall see how soon he will be set free.
