    Does said wetsuit have one of those little slits in the crotch area so one can whip it out?

    both criminal wanted crime committed and law wanted crime committed and both are human , wanted it committed just like the criminal did…. dont wanna admit even that they want them to be committed just as teh criminal did or so what that they do too and are people too just like the criminal, how about nobody should want them committed. neither criminal nor law… law wanted it committed cause they couldnt do what they do without them the crime being committed meaning they want the crime committed just as the criminal, criminal wanted it committed.. both human how about neither the law nor criminal should want them committed. we kinda never know why those people were doing what their doing think about it… the crime aside… they wanted you to do the same thing u wanted to do(the law) , what in the heLL

    $1,000 dollar reward, to catch this knucklehead??? i want a raise!

  6. The Big Logic says:

    If a load was blown, and apparently one was blown, then the wetsuit had to have a relief poutch in the crotch area. How does someone wearing a wetsuit become sexually stimulated to commit rape? Maybe it was Timberlake, that dude does not play with a full deck.

    I’m not sure I’m buying it. 5’8, 150 pounds??? And the woman couldn’t defend herself? Anyone who has wriggled in and out of a wetsuit KNOWS these are difficult to pull off and on. She would’ve had PLENTY of opportunities to get away AND beat the mess out if the guy as he was wriggling out of it! My vote- “false!”

    1. The Big Logic says:

      Your logic belongs at the bottom of a 25 foot deep sewage container.

    2. reverendjustito says:

      I actually agree with The Big Logic. I live in this neighborhood. It was a hot night and I had my windows open/live close enough to hear someone screaming. It seems odd to me that at a time when multiple students are walking back to their cars, no one saw or heard a man in a wet suit sexually assault someone in a well lit residential neighborhood.
