    CA - Suspects Raped 'Defenseless' Disabled Women on Tape

    Two of the four suspects who are visible in more than 100 hours of videotape as they sexually assaulted severely disabled women, many of whom just "lay there" as they were attacked, have been identified, authorities announced.

    If you have not been following this case, take some time. It is disturbing.

    OMG. I am just sick with fury. No punishment is too awful for these awful men. This is just so disturbing on a gut level. I was nauseated reading the article. Those poor women!

    My question is, how does this activity get videotaped? Is there a friend (fellow coworker) in the room filming this as it happens? Is it surveilance video or patient rooms? How does this happen for such a long period of time without someone cathcing on and stopping it?

    The article stated the DVDs were delivered anonymously to LE by someone claiming to have been asked to clean this mess off someones hard drive. Is that someone some sick collector of disabled rape porn?? Where did that someone GET all this video? Was he a participant? Ugghhh this is just so disturbing!

    The video appears to come from different sources, some is security camera footage from a still camera mounted in the room and some is video footage that is handheld and appears that an accomplice, one of the suspects, is holding it for another [suspect]," said Scott.

    We all know this stuff goes on but a video compilation is pretty astounding.

    Just goes to prove the point "if they can't talk" (i.e. disabled, animals, small kids, whatever) you can't be too careful! Must be pretty low end facilites that employ the types shown in that video without noticing. Sheesh.

    Send or keep on sending the images and sketches of the remaining suspects to every single hospital and residential care facility in the entire state. Hope they keep circulating and publicizing the images and sketches of those not yet caught until they are identified. They will be. These men need to be taken off the streets, out of the residences and removed from the workplaces of CA now.

    what is interesting is that they have had these tapes since March. They have been enhancing and putting solid descriptions together before release. They released it to the public yesterday I think and 2 have been identified already. There are more.
    The accounts of what is seen on these tapes is horrendous. Even the most seasoned vets who have seen it all said it is some of the worst they have seen.

    At least one of the perps is a paraplegic patient. The others most likely work there and had access to the tapes.

    Last March, the Special Victims Bureau in Los Angeles, California found themselves with an anonymous delivery of 100 hours of grainy footage taken by what appeared to be both hand-held and security cameras. The detectives believe the footage had been a collection.
    What became clear when the footage was enhanced was up to 10-20 disabled women being raped over what appeared to be a period of time. The rapes are believed to have taken place between 2007 and 2009.

    One of the suspects, Bert Hicks, was a worker at a Los Angeles care facility and had already been prosecuted by police for two felony sex counts and two abuse counts. He is currently imprisoned at Tehachapi State Prison and scheduled for release in 2012, Scott said.

    The videos came from an anonymous tipster who said a customer purchased a laptop on the streets of Inglewood and brought it to him to wipe the hard drive. Before doing so, he copied the videos and gave them to authorities.

    The men apparently knew each other based on the fact that they raped the same victim, investigators said.

    Where was the rest of the staff? I know there are a lot of unethical people in the world, but these 'men' are disgusting. How in the heck did another patient get into a room to rape another patient without anyone noticing? Unbelievable! I hope the rest of the staff is investigated also.

    In another video, a man leads another suspect into a room then leaves him alone to assault a woman
    ... Some of the assaults occur on beds and one takes place on a collection of bean bags on the floor.

    Uhhhh...yeah...that is not at all believable. But whomever turned in the videos either had a conscience or a vendetta (9 out of 10 odds it was vendetta).
