While proofing the newspaper this morning, I read something that chilled me to the core. A woman was traveling on I-95 and stopped in RR because she was tired. She decided to take a nap in the parking lot of the local hospital. A habitual offender, who wasn't suppose to be released from jail, found her there and brutally raped her and then drove out near the interstate and left her. Then the rapist went on a burglary spree. The rape victim found her rapist on our website being charged with another crime.
This has definitely made me want to be more careful. No more sleeping in the car and being extra vigilant with my surroundings. My heart and prayers go out to this brave woman. The rapist has been to jail more than 40 times for a variety of charges.
For a small city, we have had a lot of crime lately ranging from burglary to sex crimes. What is the world coming to?
