Criminals beware, there are cameras everywhere.
After all, few things are as incriminating as a video of a criminal caught in the act.
And when the perpetrator can be heard clearly stating his or her intentions while the video is being recorded, well…prison time!
There’s also something to be said for taking precautions, particularly for young women, such as traveling in groups. Walking about at night alone is a bad idea, for example.
Fortunately, when a quick-thinking young lady was suddenly assaulted walking home, she had the presence of mind to do something very brave, and something her attacker never suspected.
And this is exactly what enabled law enforcement to capture the rapist and send him to prison for a nice long stretch. Chances are, THIS guy won’t get pizza delivered to his cell, either.
Via Daily Mail:
“A teenager helped snare the man who tried to rape her after she managed to record the brutal assault on her mobile phone.
Student Lillian Constantine, 18, can be heard screaming and pleading with her attacker on the two-minute 47-second clip, recorded on her Samsung as she walked home in Ramsgate, Kent.
It is thought to be the first time ever that a victim’s own footage of an entire attack has helped put a rapist behind bars.
Ashraf Miah, 34, attacked her beneath a street light that had been turned off by a council to save money.
Police were able to isolate a still from the grainy film, allowing Miah, a Bangladeshi takeaway worker, to be traced to an address in London.
The illegal immigrant was jailed last month for 13-and-a-half years and must serve a minimum of nine-and-a-half years.”

There are a number of compelling themes here:
One is that a lady should never walk alone on the streets at night, as I said above. Either go with a group or don’t go.
The other theme involves dispelling the myth that allowing illegal migrants to remain in-country is a good idea.
Since they arrived illegally, they are already criminals. That they might choose to commit another crime or two should not come as a surprise.
And no, we shouldn’t keep paying for them and supporting them. That makes ZERO sense.
One must applaud this young lady for having the courage to act as she did and for going public with a humiliating story.
If our politicians had just a fraction of her courage, we would have far fewer problems with crime and illegal migrants.
