  1. It is not up to “women, particularly those living alone, to take precautions, secure their homes, and stay vigilant” … it is up to this man to not rape. It is up to the police force to find this man. It is up to the legal authorities to prosecute this man. Do not put responsibility for his actions on his victims. He is responsible. And public servants are responsible for stopping him.

  2. Even though this young man is responsible for this rape, we as women also should take precautions. As long as there is sin, men will partake in these heinous crimes so whatever we have to do to protect ourselves we should.

  3. That’s like saying thieves shouldn’t steal and burglars shouldn’t burgle so leave your vehicle and home wide open and take no precautions. That makes no sense. As a woman I will take precautions because the world is full of crime and criminals and they will commit these acts whether I like it or not so YES it is up to me to SAFEGUARD MYSELF from them as much as I’m able. Would you tell a store owner oh robbers shouldn’t rob or would you tell him it is wise to get alarms and cameras to safeguard your property from them? They shouldn’t but they will and that is a reality of life just like birth and death so protect yourself and defend yourself.

  6. @Rico… I see what you did there 😉

    Heart goes out to the victim. Nobody should have to experience this at all. Everyone here has some valid points.

    1 everyone should have the right to peace and safety

    2 not because you have that right your vigilance and awareness should be at a minimum.

    I don’t recommend panic level awareness that has you not even trusting your shadow. But just know law enforcement involvement means it’s after the fact
