Rapid City (Raleigh, NC) – Rapid City Police Department (RCPD) is using reverse rape (reverse online rape) to pay out cash, thanks to a rape victim who said she was not expecting to receive money for sex.
“The reason why I was getting money for the sex wasn’t that I was raped, it was because I was using a credit card,” the victim, who wished to remain anonymous, told WLOS in an interview from her home in Rapid City, North Carolina.
“It was because it was an online credit card that was issued through the Rapid City Police department, and because I used a credit union, it gave me a little bit of money for my rent and my food, but the money was not for sex, because it wasn’t for sex.”
“This has been my life since I was 16.
I just started using the internet, and I was on the internet for two years before I had a credit account,” the woman, who was raped when she was 16, said.”
I was so upset about this because I felt like it was my fault because I wasn’t paying my rent, I wasn.
So I think it’s kind of unfair to the person that is raped, because you know, you’re a victim. “
I was getting a little money for this debt and now I’m not getting any money, but if you’re raped, then you should have no money.
So I think it’s kind of unfair to the person that is raped, because you know, you’re a victim.
You’re a person who is in pain and you need help.”
The victim’s story of being raped and being unable to pay her rent and food at the time is among the reasons why Rapid City police Chief Michael Bowers decided to use the tactic to help pay for the crime victim’s expenses.
“It’s something that is happening more and more often, and we have to deal with it because it’s a problem,” Bowers told WLTV-TV in a recent interview.
“It’s a crime, and you have to take responsibility for it.
And I don’t know why we don’t do it.”
Bowers said the department will be contacting other rape victims, to see if they need help paying for their rent and for their groceries, and will also be contacting the person who raped them to get a check for their crime.
“We will make sure that we do a thorough background check on them, and they are going to be charged for the crimes that they committed and we will be doing everything that we can to try and get their money back,” he said.
Bower added that rape victims can also call the Rape, Abuse and Incest National Network at 1-800-656-HOPE (4673) and talk to a Rape Crisis Centre worker to make sure their money is not used to pay their rapists.
Rapide City Police are also using the rape victim’s name to help fund their department’s new Crime Prevention and Response Fund, which is paying for the hiring of new detectives, detectives and support staff.
The department will also provide a $50,000 reward for information leading to the arrest and conviction of the person or persons responsible for the victim’s rape, and for information that leads to the conviction of two or more perpetrators.
