    Now those are stats that I never want to see where I live! Ack!

    I was happy to find our murder rate was cut in half from this time last year.

    Reno is above the national average in every single category, significantly above in most. I really don't know how LE has such a good rep with the locals.

    Call me crazy, but is it possible that there is a correlation between the legalization of prostitutes, the unrestricted availability of alcohol and the crime rates in Nevada? One wonders if this type of behavior would be occuring at such a high frequency if prostitution and the availabity of alcohol were restricted. Las Vegas is known as "Sin City" but some of the sins being committed are unforgivable.

    I think it would be hard to argue that prostitution doesn't change the way women are viewed by some men. When women can be bought like a Hershey bar I don't think it is hard to objectify them. To be very honest I could never understand how someone could pay for sex and not think less of themselves, it is laughable IMO. At least the women are getting paid.

    I don't want to generalize too much because I know lots of good people who have gone to Vegas. I understand that most people go there for fun- the glitter and face pace, not to cause trouble for anyone. However, the partying reputation, legal hookers and gambling are going to attract a lot people who are high risk to commit crime. JMO

    They have to take the good with the bad. I have a different outlook on the legalization of prostitution as I feel it is not only a good thing, but neccessary. Prostitution is going to exist in every city across the country legal or not. The element associated with the "business" aspect is the problem not the women. It is the pimps, drug dealers, and scumbags who we need to remove from the equation.

    Does this have an affect on Nevada's stats? I don't think the answer is that simple.

    I have a slightly different look on the legalized prostitution --- how do you not look down on the men who have to pay to get someone to have sex with them?

    I don't agree with prostitution. I guess it goes against my own personal morals and values. However, I must say that I don't necessarily think the men paying for sex are paying for the pure fact that it's the only way to get someone to sleep with them. Infact, I think that's rarely the case. Men sleeping with prostitutes keeps it more annonymous, so to speak. It's an easy way for them to have their sexual needs and desires met without people knowing, for example their spouses, parents, children. ect...

    There are a lot of things that are going to exist in every city whether or not they are legal but that doesn't make them necessary. Call me a prude but paying someone to have sex with you makes you a moron IMO.

    Let's take this back to Bri now. We could go on and on about this subject. LOL

    Maybe we should start writing and calling the newspaper to find out why they aren't putting some pressure on LE there?

    Hello Softsoul! I sort of agree, but have to add in the fact that it could be a lonely soul, or a kinky soul.....neither of which are necessarily a moron. I just want to see someone arrested for the murder of Bri!!!

    So many prostitutes are beaten up, subjected to weird stuff, missing and even murdered. I wonder just how many men who use them are sexually or socially normal.

    I don't think this guy has anything to do with prostitutes. I have this hunch that he frequents the topless clubs just south of 80 on Victoria (which might be where he got his thong underwear), then he leaves and heads north toward campus. The Bri attack was not, in my opinion, premeditated, like a delivery guy or plumber or anything like that. It seems to be more like a crime of opportunity, given that his two prior attacks were of the "anger-retaliatory" type of rape. Or at least it seems so to me.

    They need to look at guys with a juvenile record of physical assault on women who are working as day laborers in the campus area. Again, IMHO.

    After all, who pulls a woman off the street, like his November rape, then beats and rapes her, but brings condoms with him? Who goes back to the apartment of a woman he's already raped to break in again? It's the anger-retaliatory rapist at his prime, looking to inflict fear and pain through rape. Murder is simply a byproduct.

    trost arrest update

    Trost has been brought back to jail in Las Vegas from CA.
    He was in court on Tuesday where he faces many charges.
    Links below show updated photos as well, and one video of this guy.
    Still not sure if this guy has been looked at enough.

    I do not think there is a connection now to the former roommate and the Go-Tan.

    In regards to Roy Trost. Further details in regards to the (2) sexual assaults in the hospital parking lot.
    - he robbed and assualted both victims in one of their cars.
    - he is also facing charges for sexually assaulting a former girlfriends
    daughter
    - he is facing at least two burglary charges - one being at a ranch stealing saddles. Sagebrush Ranch. There is a brothel located within 45 minutes of Reno called Sagebrush Ranch. *** I am not 100% sure this is the sagebrush ranch that trost stole saddles from.
    - The newsreport of the Sagebrush Ranch burglary - the owner said Trost was loading saddles in his "truck". No details on what kind of truck.
    - one of the articles below stated Trost worked at the hospital "Desert Springs", not sure if there is a tie to a hospital in Reno.

    Seems like this guy could be good for it, but you would think they would have run his DNA by now, right?

    I believe they have his DNA.
    They may be collecting additional evidence in the Las Vegas parking lot cases. I believe they must make a case for these crimes first.

    Then they would/could release info if a match with Reno cases.

    There seems to be a lot more to the Trost case that has not been released. I have a feeling there is more to come.

    The fact that he was facing charges to burglaries and sexually assaulting his girlfriend's daughter.
    Sounds like he should have been arrested some time ago.

    The ranch owner knew it was Trost who stole the saddles. Why wasnt he arrested - maybe they could not locate him all of this time.
    They were very quick to put out his name and pics when the assaults occurred.

    When they released his photo, I thought, 'Wow, this could be Bri's perp.'" I know some other elements--like his age--don't add up, but I think it's good to explore the possibility.

    Looks like the media actually reports on sexual crimes in LV!!

    I find it disgusting that the bail for robbing someone with a deadly weapon is over 3X as much as sexually assaulting them with a deadly weapon. What a message that sends. I guess "we" value money more than people/women in this society. Being openly and grossly lewd will get you the same bail as sexually assaulting a child under 16.

    Nevada is a terrible place to be when it comes to people convicted of any sexual charge. Here in Vegas they cant even keep tabs on where the are living, at the moment they are looking for over a hundred sex offenders that live somewhere in town but dont know where.
    Looking for the truth

    That guy doesn't look 20 to me. The burgulary fits too since he tried to break into one of the victims apt.

    I just saw this

    I haven't seen anything related to the Dennison case mentioned and while some details are different, this guy would be someone that I would hope that LE would take a closer look into.

    The fact that an extra pair of panties (that were not Brianna's) was left at the scene and the fact that the perp in the other rapes had shaved genitals makes me very suspicious of this guy... I, too, hope LE is taking a MUCH closer look at this guy.
