Los Angeles Would Like To Get In On This Rape Cop Game Please

police on the scene, you know what I mean? Looks like the NYPD rape cops better step up their game because they have some competition! Whereas the NYPD keeps its lady citizens safe by raping them at gunpoint and or alternatively, when they are too drunk to consent, LA rape cops do it the old fashioned way: by threatening to put them in jail.

Tell us about how these cops “forced” women to have sex with them, LA Times (and is there another word for that, we wonder?):

Two Los Angeles Police Department officers are under investigation for allegedly preying on women over a period of five years, luring them into an unmarked car and forcing them to perform sex acts, according to court records. The pair repeatedly used the threat of jail to get women into their car and drove them to secluded areas where one of the officers demanded sex while the other kept watch, the warrant alleges.
[Luis] Valenzuela, a 15-year department veteran, and [James] Nichols, a 12-year veteran, were expected to be assigned to their homes pending the outcome of the probe, the head of the internal affairs group said. The officers could not be reached for comment

Don’t you feel that much safer, citizens of L.A., knowing that it only took FIVE YEARS for these men to be found out? Also too, the article is unclear on this point but it seems as though these officers are being subjected to an “internal probe,” conducted by their fellow police officers from the LAPD, and THEN, if there is enough evidence, they will be charged with crimes. So good news everyone, if driving around in an old Volkswagon and looking for women to demand oral sex from is something you’re into, you just have to get a job with the LAPD! Who knows, you might be able to get away with this behavior for a few years, and then wait for your friends and colleagues to find evidence against you from the comfort of your own home.
