In response to the arrests of three law enforcement officials in Oklahoma for sexually assaulting women while on the job, an Oklahoma Highway Patrol trooper told women they can avoid getting raped by a cop if they simply follow traffic laws.

Raw Story first pointed out on Tuesday that Capt. George Brown, a state trooper, shared a few tips for women in an interview with local NBC News affiliate KJRH. Brown told the KJRH anchor that women can keep their car doors locked and speak through a cracked window if a trooper approaches them. If the trooper asks a woman to get out of the car, Brown said, she can ask “in a polite way” why he wants her to do that.

But the “best tip that he can give,” the anchor said on air of his interview with Brown, “is to follow the law in the first place so you don’t get pulled over.”

  1. I have been an Air Policeman in the United States Air Force. I have seen bad APs just like the police described here. The last time that happened they spent 4 years at hard labor. That is how the AIr Force handled it. They also got dishonorable discharges. They were caught stealiing not rape.
    The problem with any class of weaker individuals like women against bruiser men is the men just do not know who they are dealing with. Stupid abusive cops can be victimized as well. Dealing with a woman you do not know? That woman could have just about any disease under the sun and you are next.
    I knew a psychotic man when I was in service. He was 5 foot 3 inches tall and weighed in at about 150 pounds max. He hated bullies of all kinds. That little man was a black belt in several forms of self defense. This is ancient news. He used to go into a bar in class one Air Force Blues and wait for the bullies to show up. He always had a buddy watch his back. He then proceeded to let them pick a fight. Once they did, he just about half killed them.
    There is nothing to say that out there is a similarly trained young woman that looks perfectly like a victim. You simply do not know. So raping anyone could get you killed.
    There is also the disgrace of going to jail for rape. Your career as a police officer is permanently over. Any one hiring you after that goes to trial is likely to be sued. You are no longer fit for duty as a police officer and any lawyer in the country would be happey to pursue this for any citizen out there.
    Disobeying traffic laws can get your license taken away after so many times of it happening and it can get expensive. However traffic laws are a minor crime. Only if someone dies and you are put up for manslaughter or some such thing does it become a major crime.
    NO one should ever be given more than a ticket. It should be done with respect and politeness. If it isn’t, then internal affairs needs to be notified immediately.
    A policeman is only as good as the respect given to him by the public because he deserves it. Too many times police people do deserve less than respect when they act less than a complete professional. At all times we should give all officers of the law respect. It does not mean we talk to them more than necessary. Any lawyer out there will advise you to keep your mouth shut.
    Any policeman worth his pay will not try to incriminate you. It happens all the time though.
    What we do need to do is change the job description. Because police that are aggressive against the public should not be tolerated by the courts or the public.
