Police on Thursday asked for the public’s help to find a man wanted in connection with an alleged rape on a public bus in Culver City, which was captured by surveillance cameras.

An 18-year-old woman with the mental capacity of a 10 year old told police she was raped about 5 p.m. Wednesday after she boarded Bus Line 217 at La Cienega and Jefferson boulevards, according to the LA County Sheriff’s Department.

The alleged aggressor boarded the bus the same time as the woman.

"The suspect followed her to the rear of the bus where she sat down," sheriff’s officials said. “The suspect, without any warning or provocation, stood and faced her while positioning himself between her legs and sexually assaulted her."

After about 10 minutes, the man, pictured below on bus surveillance camera, stopped his alleged assault and exited the bus at Sepulveda Boulevard and Slauson Avenue, the route’s last stop.

According to the original post...

“The man is described as a Black man between 18 and 20 years old. He stands between 5 feet 8 inches and 5 feet 10 inches tall, weighs about 150 to 160 pounds and has short, cropped hair. At the time of the incident, he was wearing jeans and a hooded sweatshirt with narrow horizontal stripes.”

Who woulda thunk?

Before I read the article, before I saw the picture from the surveillance camera, I made a prejudiced guess as to the ethnicity of the perpetrator. As in most of these types of news releases, my guess was confirmed. Why is my prejudice and stereotyping so often correct? If such a conclusion from scanty evidence is so often vindicated, why am I publicly castigated for such analysis?

I know the answer, but it's still depressing and so Orwellian.

One of the things we should start doing with these animals is physical castration as part of the sentencing. It wasn’t that long ago that rape was a capital crime.
