    LA - Commuters Thwart Kidnap Attempt Of Teen By Registered Sex Offender

    At least ten commuters at a light rail station in LA helped save a young teen girl from being kidnapped.

    James Alfred Burnett is a Registered Sex Offender who tried to drag the teen away from the station. He fought off the good Samaritans and got away on the train. Police were waiting for him at another station. The girl was unidentified until she heard on the news about the incident and went to police.

    There's a still photo at this link showing this raging lunatic literally picking this girl up and trying to kidnap her.

    I commend these people who stepped in to help this young girl when a lot of people would have turned a blind eye... either out of fear or because they don't think it is their business to get involved with what they may think could be a domestic dispute. They saved her life!!

    Now, to the important part, why was the RSO out of jail to reoffend in the first place??

    The moment a crowd of train passengers foiled sex offender's attempt to kidnap girl

    Most of the time people would rather walk on by than help somebody in need.

    But one group of train passengers decided to take action on seeing an attempted kidnapping playing out before them.

    Up to ten commuters, at an MTA Avalon station in south Los Angeles, fought off registered sex offender, James Alfred Burnett, when he allegedly tried to grab a teenage girl on Thursday

    Poor girl had to be stunned. She went home and contacted police when she heard through media about this.

    Maybe they'll keep reoffending sex offender Burnett locked up. Maybe.

    Thanks to the fine citizens that beat his tail and saved her.

    True heroes in my eyes! People tend to usually look the other way when these kind of things happen.

    What shocks me the most is that this man tried to kidnap this girl in front of these people and actually thought that they would just ignore the situation and continue on with their day as if nothing. This man will surely think twice about doing that again!

    gahhhhh!

    The suspect is identified as James Alfred Burnett, a 46-year-old registered sex offender with a criminal history.

    What in the HE11 was he doing out of jail?

    He's described as a transient, with a prior of rape by force (on Megan's website).

    I'm glad he was caught and doubt this was the only time he tried to pull this stunt!

    Wanna place a wager on how long it will be before he's on the street again?

    MOO
