Sheriff's Detective at LACC: people who report rape were "just drunk" night befo

Students stand up to rapist sympathizer sheriff. We need community back up Monday 10am to confront administration and politicians (Angelides, Feinstein, Boxer) on taking action!

Sheriff's Detective ...

ALL OUT AGAINST SEXIST SHERIFFS! Monday November 6th @10am NO means NO at LACC!
Wednesday November 1st I and three other people were campaigning in front of the Vermont side of LACC. Two sheriffs came up to us asking if we had seen a man with a hooded sweater. We say no but ask why. Because he is a rapist they said. The one sheriff ( Detective Spelatz) then told us that “70-80% of rape reports are illegitimate” and that most women who report rape have a “morning after slight”. He also said reports were from women who drank too much and regretted what they did the night before. The sheriff said nothing.

Minutes later my friends and I from the group Students for Educational Reform (SER) which we are apart of to marched to the sheriffs department. In the end there were 40 of us.

We said we wanted to file a complaint and were stalled. So we sat down in the office. No sooner did we sit down then we spot the Detective Spelatz and the Sergeant Parra. We walked out and I made a complaint along with another witness. I am also a victim of sexual assault.
Our demands are:

1. Immediate resignation of detective Spelatz (he handles the current rape case investigation case)
2. An apology by the Los Angeles Sheriffs Department
3. A compulsory training course on rape, sexual harassment and sheriff’s conduct with rape victims.



The next day the sheriffs had shown the tape to the administration but did not explain why we came. They had a false impression of what happened and they along with the sheriffs asked US TO APOLOGIZE for “intimidating them”. No way!

Monday @ 10am in front of campus Students for Educational Reform is having a protest rally in front of the campus. Senator Boxer, Feinstein and Angelides will be there. We intend to tell them to “do their job!” and fight rapist sympathizers in the Sheriffs department.
For more info please contact Julia (310) 404-6729

We could not all fit but we all wanted to be present. Now the sheriffs are saying that we " intimidated" them and are pressing charges.
