Rape victim forced to call her boyfriend. She calls 911 instead.

Published

Meet Robert Giles. This is the face of the rapist who attacked a young woman in Georgia and tried to make her boyfriend experience the attack via a phonecall.

The attacker made his move by kidnapping the victim in Hapeville Georgia, he then took her to the back of an adult store where he attacked her.

The quick thinking of the victim as well as a 911 dispatcher meant that the police could get to the scene before Giles had a clue.

As he forced his victim to call her boyfriend so he could “listen in” to the attack, the victim called 911 (pretending to call her partner), the dispatcher quickly understood what was happening and pretended to be her boyfriend while dispatching police.

Whilst acting in character, the operator tried to talk the attacker out of the assault, but at the same time sent police units to intervene. Police quickly arrived and say they arrested Giles in the act.

 

Maj. Joe Woodall from Clayton county police said: “She explained to him what the perpetrator had told her; that he was wanting him to listen while she was being raped,” 

“They were able to stop it right then and there and snatched him right from the car,” 

Giles now faces rape, false imprisonment and obstruction charges. Hapeville police are preparing kidnapping charges against Giles.

Why Is Uber Banned In London?

Published

on

This morning Transport for London announced that it plans to revoke Uber’s cap license in the capital due to its approach to reporting criminal offenses. “TfL has today informed Uber that it will not be issued with a private hire operator licence,” they posted on Twitter.

In one patr of announcement, TfL’s references “Greyball”, which refers to a controversial software used by the company that was first exposed earlier this year by the New York Times.

The investigation found that Uber had used the secret program to avoid law enforcement, allowing it to operate illegally without detection. Greyball was created to identify police and other law enforcers and provide them with a fake interface that made it much harder to book taxis.

According to the Times’ report, the company used a number of techniques to do this such as analysing people’s credit card information to determine whether or not they had ties with a police union. If you were discovered to be opening and closing Uber in certain areas, such as near government offices or police stations, you would also be served the fake version of the app.

The company even looked at social media profiles and identified models of phone likely to be used by law enforcement.

If you were “Greyballed” then you would either see fake cars or no cars on the app. If you did manage to book an Uber, the company would call the driver to cancel the ride.

In report by Independent, published in March, Uber has defended the software: “This technology is used to hide the standard city app view for individual riders, enabling Uber to show that same rider a different version. It’s been used for many purposes, for example: the testing of new features by employees; marketing promotions; fraud prevention; to protect our partners from physical harm; and to deter riders using the app in violation of our terms of service.”

Uber has always insisted that its workers are not employees, but instead self-employed contractors, meaning they are not same rights around pay and conditions as actual employees. However, the company has said that move by TfL threatens to put thousands of workers’ livelihoods at risk.

Tom Elvidge, Uber’s general manager in London, said: “By wanting to ban our app from the capital, Transport for London and the mayor have caved in to a small number of people who want to restrict consumer choice. If this decision stands, it will put more than 40,000 licensed drivers out of work and deprive Londoners of a convenient and affordable form of transport. To defend the livelihoods of all those drivers, and the consumer choice of millions of Londoners who use our app, we intend to immediately challenge this in the courts.”

The transport governing body says the rules and regulations around the licence are in place to ensure passenger safety, adding in a statement: “TfL has concluded that Uber London is not fit and proper to hold a private hire operator licence. TfL considers Uber’s approach and conduct demonstrate a lack of corporate responsibility in relation to a number of issues which have potential public safety and security implications.”

A heroic 16 year old teen tackled a suspect trying to escape from two female police officers in Brighton, UK.

The teen’s name is Kiya Ingham and is an amateur kick boxer and plans to be a police officer when he finishes his education.

The suspect he was chasing kicked out against the police officers and attempted to escape before Ingham spotted what was going on and chased down Bradley Jay Hughes (31).

Ingham has since been given an award by Sussex police for his bravery when assisting female PCs Lynsey Burkinshaw and Johanna Clarke.

Ingham said:

“I took interest at what was happening inside the police car and sat at the bus stop for about 30 seconds.

‘Then the man flipped. I dropped my bag, which had my tablet and phone in, and ran after him. I didn’t think, it was just instinct.

When I was running I was just hoping I could get him down, because if he did that to police officers he could do worse to me.

You can see him point at me and say ‘I know your face’. “

 

Bradley Jay Hughes pleaded guilty to assualting the officers and was sentenced to 100 hours of unpaid community work.

Bodycam Footage Shows Policeman Shoot Knife-Wielding Man

This altercation in Ohio goes from sedate, to violent and crazy in about 1 second.

It looks like the guy either flipped out for no apparent reason, or he was looking for a “suicide by cop”.

He was certainly acting strangely before he flipped. Luckily the cop seemed like he was ready and drew his weapon fast.
