Woman Waiting Out Storm Was Raped at Gary Train Station

Chicago Tribune, August 16, 2011

South Shore Line police are asking for the public’s help in finding a man who raped a 68-year-old woman as she waited out a rainstorm in a Gary train station over the weekend.

The woman was attacked as she sat in the passenger shelter at the Miller South Shore station in Gary about 11:45 p.m. Saturday, according to Northern Indiana Commuter Transportation District police.

The woman was waiting for a rain shower to pass when a man rode up the platform on a bike and sat down near her, Byrd said. {snip}

The man tried to engage the woman in conversation, then pulled out a black handgun and ordered her to get down on the ground and disrobe, Byrd said.

Police described the attacker as black, in his mid-20s, slender build, about 5-foot-7 to 5-foot-9. He was wearing a white T-shirt with black lettering on the front and back and white shorts.

    This happened in the Miller area of Gary, one of the few parts of the city that is not entirely black, with a few upscale homes near the beach.

    They got a blurry picture of the perpetrator riding up on his bike, with a shot of the back of his shirt and the lettering on it that cannot be made out, but that one can just discern the general pattern of. In other words, good luck in catching this thug.

    Was the woman White? Of course they did not mention it, so I assume she was. Blacks tend to rape no matter the age. There have been so many stories of blacks raping older White women some in their 80’s!

    As George Wallace said in his SANER days before being forced to retract his stance on segregation. BTW, What is it about Whites who ALWAYS apologize and later beg for forgiveness from these people is beyond comprehension. They will NEVER be forgiven no matter what, so why do they apologize? Insanity. Well, anyway here it is:

    “In the name of the greatest people who ever trod this earth, I draw the line in the dust and toss the gauntlet before the feet of tyranny, and I say segregation today, segregation tomorrow, segregation forever.”

    -George C. Wallace, Jr.

    Really? It seems to me that blacks and hispanics have the worst kids,(gangs and crime) more so than White “bad” parents. I have seen many good White kids come from an alcoholic/drug abuse family more so than the nonwhite family.

    I am getting pretty sick of these AmRen stories that tell these make believe stories of our Great black Populations propensity for crime.

    If you check out the books they are using to educate white children today you would know that all blacks do with their spare time is 1. Come up with new and wonderful inventions 2. Write great books and articles to educate the simple white man. 3. Donate their valuable time to not only hep blacks but also whites worldwide, if it were not for black generosity most whites would starve? 4. NO you claim it was a black lad who did this BUT if they find the accused I have a feeling he will be working in his laboratory coming up with a cure for some horrible disease?

    Not really. It’s the Christian way to ask forgiveness publicly. Many public figures have done this, and most of them have been Southern politicians or religious leaders. But many people, after having lived a contradictory life, “get religion” as they age or face the consequences of their previous lives. I think it is a sign of the lack of real integrity.

    @ Post 4 – You are 100% wrong. Hear a black man state what the real problem is:

    “There’s something wrong with the black man’s mind”

    A White woman who lives in my buidling was raped at UCLA main hospital in Westwood by a black male nurse. She is 62, chubby and was never pretty.

    She was scheduled for surgery. He came in her room to take her to surgery. He wheeled the gurney into another room, shut the door and raped her. He was sent to prison.

    When she told me about it I told her he could not possibly be a nurse, he must have been a nurse’s aide. She told me his name. I looked it up on the Californa RN site, nothing. I looked on the California licensed vocational nurse site and there he was as no longer licensed.

    UCLA hospital calles itself the 3rd best hospital in the country.
