Lock this guy up, just what we need another criminal running around the streets of Bishop. Let’s just hope the inyo county court system does its job and puts this guys away for a long time.

Mr Jones: The man has been charged, not convicted. Do you know the difference?

Police responded to a disturbance, then arrested someone of raping of an unconscious person. What disturbance does a passed out victim make? If this man had intercourse with an unconscious person, then yes it’s rape. If two adults were drinking to the point of intoxication that would allow for poor choices, shouldn’t both people be charged with rape?

Wow, BishopPeeps, really? A victim of rape should be charged with rape?

Tinner- Stay on point, and stop being white knight’y. I was making the point on the reporting and how this news release is telling us an event that took place. Let’s take out the gender roles in this story. Police responded to a disturbance, and a person was then arrested for raping an unconscious person. If a person had sex with an unconscious person, then yes it’s rape, and that person should be in prison. If two individuals engaged in a night of drinking and were both drunk…which person goes to jail for raping if both parties are both drunk? I came to that conclusion because how does an unconscious person know they were raped if they are unconscious? Hence the “Disturbance” call.

BishopPeeps, a woman would know.
Do you know what inmates do to convicted rapists in prison? That’s me.

Read about this sort of thing all the time nowdays….and see it on the Discovery ID television station 24/7….for gosh sakes,girls….before “hooking up ” with a stranger,especially the “new friends ” from out of State,do a background check,at least.
