    Oregon woman raped after police refuse to send out response unit

    Local police in Oregon, USA fail to respond to emergency calls and advise residents to "consider relocating to an area with adequate police services"

    by The Commentator on 28 May 2013 11:08



    A woman was choked and raped following a 911 call to police in which the dispatcher told her to ask her attacker to "go away".
    The incident, which occured late last August but was only widely reported last week, took place in Josephine County, Oregon, when a woman's ex-boyfriend tried to break into her home.
    Instead of sending an officer to the scene, the police dispatcher advised, “I don’t have anybody to send out there. You know, obviously, if he comes inside the residence and assaults you, can you ask him to go away? Do you know if he’s intoxicated or anything?”
    The man eventually forced entry to the house, wherein he proceeded to "brutally rape" the woman before fleeing. After the attack, police went in search for 29-year-old Michael Bellah, and arrested him.
    The Sheriff's Department blamed the lack of resources due to recent public funding cuts. “There isn’t a day go by that we don’t have another victim,” said Josephine County Sheriff Gil Gilbertson. In Josephine County, 80 percent of sheriff’s deputies lost their jobs when the cuts were made. The few that remain cannot respond to emergency calls during the evening or on weekends.
    “How is it that there were no officers available to assist the woman who was about be raped, but they did have officers available to go and arrest the man after the rape? The police department should be sued for their failure to protect a tax paying citizen,” Julia Mason, 28, of Portland, Oregon said after she was asked what she thought about the police who failed to help a woman who was about to become a rape victim.
    After the government budget cuts, which occurred before the rape incident, Josephine County Sheriff Gil Gilbertson said in a press release that victims of domestic violence should "consider relocating to an area with adequate police services."
    Bellah was charged with Kidnapping, sex abuse, stangulation and theft among other things. His bail was set at $437,500.

    I get sick to my stomach when I hear stuff like this because I imagine it being my fiancé. And I get even angrier when there's people out there who want to eliminate the one other method she could have protected herself with.

    I read this the other day. Very sad. Poor woman probably believed guns were evil and that police were there to protect her and that is why she doesen't own one. It's up to the individual to devise thier own home defense plan but I would urge anyone thinking about this to consider a lethal option. Shame on you Sheriff Gilbertson. Sir, you are a scumbag. Instead of recomending domestic violence victims to move, which is not a strategic defense at all, you should be organizing self defense training/firearms for the public.... or something. You know your force has been cut back and you are supposed to be a leader in your community. You hold an elected position and need to be held accountable for instances like these. Vote this idiot out next election, please. What a dummy.

    Children are different, they do need a protector. Responsible adults understand that weapons are for them and their families protection until/if the LEO get on scene. Rural people have always understood that. They've always had a shotgun or rifle around. City folk are just now are getting to know what country folk have known for hundreds of years.
    Police have no responsibility to protect individuals. The common folks need to know this and understand it too.

    It's a sad day when a dispatcher tells you there isn't an officer available.

    Been asked; "Why a gun?" several times. This is how it usually goes...

    Q: Why a gun?
    A: Why not?

    Q: What are you afraid of?
    A: Nothing.

    Q: Have you ever had a gun pulled on you?
    A: Yes, four times in fact.

    That usually ends the conversation right there. It is indeed my own responsibility to protect myself and my home.

    Law enforcement resources are being cut across the country, a police department in MN had to ask residents for ammo because they couldn't find any, the average response time in our city of Grand Rapids, MI, is 18+ minutes now, we are about to lose 17 more officers, and those remaining will be mostly re-deployed to the overnight hours, meaning that the average 911 response time during the day will increase, yet those in DC and in the legislatures of a number of states - and even our mayor - would have us become even more dependent on those diminishing resources. That makes all the sense on the world.

    I refuse to allow my family or myself to be victims. I pray for protection and carry a firearm. The Divine/human cooperative. Taking shoot/no shoot training soon so that I can carry at the church of which I am a member and a leader of one of our security teams.
