Hmmm.... I respectfully disagree that most thought he was good mannered. At least some of the things I've read such as he had the nickname The Rapist (so he gave women the creeps), it was also mentioned that he was an oddball, and also that he'd only pull over women, never men, which didn't set too well with those that worked with him. And last but not least... he was reported to bosses for slapping a female cop’s bum. Those things don't make for a very good mannered person, at least in my book.
“It used to be the talk of the station that he would only pull over women and never any blokes. “It got to the point that people didn’t want to go on patrol with him.
The 3 clues that could've seen Wayne Couzens sacked before killing Sarah
As for being below Sarah's level... First off, I agree. He likely was well below her level. BUT, people put on their best faces when they are trying to impress someone. I always tell those that fall hard for someone to give it time and wait for the infatuation period to end. Time needs to go by for true colors to come out. So, IF (and it's a huge unlikely IF if you ask me) they ever did go out, even once, he'd have been on his best behavior and she wouldn't have had a clue what a despicable person he was. I'll end by saying I do think it's extremely unlikely that she had anything to do with him in the past. I think it was a stranger abduction and she was his unlucky victim that night.
Lastly, both women and men have been known to have flings (and more) with those below their level so it does happen. I've done it myself so I can speak from experience and not just make generalizations that it happens. And I KNEW he was well below my level
(it wasn't something that was hidden from me) and still did it, and rather enjoyed myself for the time I was with the person. Was it going to be a forever thing? Oh heck NO. I knew that going in. LOL Marriage and having kids was brought up and that's when I bowed out. But I had fun.
To recap... I do think it's extremely unlikely that she had anything to do with him in the past. I think it was a stranger abduction and she was his unlucky victim that night.
