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.

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

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.

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!

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?
