Posted on 12/14/2010 1:54:02 PM PST by Wile E Coyote Genius
A man was chased down by bystanders moments after he allegedly molested an 8-year-old girl in a Walmart store in San Leandro, the second such incident in the East Bay in less than two weeks.
The latest incident happened at the Walmart at 1919 Davis St. at about 7 p.m. Friday, when the girl was shopping with her family. Her brother became separated from them, and the girl volunteered to look for him, police said.
Soon afterward, the girl returned to her mother in tears and said a man had grabbed her from behind and had put his hand down her pants, police said.
She pointed him out to her mother, and the mother notified store employees.

I remember when I was a kid, I could go to the toy section and look around while mom shopped. It seems you can't allow kids to do that any more. (And it seems those kids who do are generally so bratty they tear up the toys.)
I wonder if he's another illegal alien moslesting the kids American perverts won't moslest?
How desperate do you have to be to think you just have to grab a girl in a store feel her up and think you can get away with it?
About as desperate as walking across the desert for 3 days to enter the ‘Land of Sexual Opportunity’.
*facepalm* Once again, I fail to understand how anyone could possibly think they can do this sort of thing in a public place and not get caught.
Oh well, could have been worse. At least it wasn’t an 8-year old boy.
Both are equally bad, IMO.
This perp just plain needs killing.
A TSA agent on vacation? (sorry)
Nothing like this ever happened to me when I was a kid, although there was one time when we were in a mall and I had a soda in a Styrofoam cup. So we’re in this toy store and I set my drink down for a moment to look at something. After a minute or so, I picked it up again to take a sip. And one of the store employees said to me “Are you sure that’s yours?” to which I said “Yes.”
I felt insulted by this. Did this lady actually think I would be so dumb as to pick up some random cup in a store and drink from it? Christ, by the time I was 3 years old I knew not to do that.
In San Francisco?? The guy probably thought it was legal, PROTECTED behavior in that sick habitat of freaks and psychos.
You joke but the reality is a TSA agent can do this and not be arrested. Just wonder how many perverts will become TSA agents.
“Both are equally bad, IMO.”
I dunno; I’ve always had a particular revulsion of gay child molesters.
“This perp just plain needs killing.”
I don’t think merely sticking his hands in the girl’s pants quite warrants the death penalty, although he definitely needs some time behind bars. I mean, how stupid could you possibly be?
But I’d still bet you this guy is an illegal immigrant, along with the guy in the dollar store the other week. Probably best to deport the both of them.
This is California. The perp will be released in weeks. Next time he’ll rape an 8 year old until she bleeds out. Then the majority will still call for tolerance.
“You joke but the reality is a TSA agent can do this and not be arrested. Just wonder how many perverts will become TSA agents.”
Heck, this guy ought to apply for a job with the TSA. And if he’s an illegal immigrant, he’d be considered especially good hiring material.
1. Kudos to the bystanders for tracking this sub-human down.
2. Watch your kids in public places - this is apparently a not uncommon MO for predators.
“In San Francisco?? The guy probably thought it was legal, PROTECTED behavior in that sick habitat of freaks and psychos.”
Not much longer before it actually is.
It makes me wonder if they do that kind of thing to females at home in their own country
I would shoot this bastard before the cops ever got there
I joke but you’re right. They can do this at an airport and not have any ramifications - I too wonder how many perverts get to be TSA agents. I can see some dad waiting around the corner with a ballbat when the guy gets off work.
Sure hope the kid didn't just pick out some random guy...kids always tell the truth, after all.
We are talking about Wal Mart, the place has more video cams than ____________? (fill in the blank) They dude had to have been caught on camera
There have always been child molesters, we just didn’t have the Internet to know how big the problem was.
I disagree. Certain forms of behavior are indicative of a sick mind that should be put down. Not in anger and not waving the shining sword of Justice, just put down like a rabid dog.
Child molesters are on that list, as are rapists in general. I'd add anyone who tortures animals for fun, engages in necrophilia or cannibalism, or who gains sexual gratification by viewing images of any of the above.
People like that are just too dangerous to be allowed to walk around free, and since I am not willing to pay to keep them locked up until they die, I think that the humane and civilized thing to do is kill them.
Not exactly the behavior of an innocent man.
OK, I just read another story on this and there were witnesses.
My problem with children accusing people of molesting them stems from the Fells Acres Day Care incident where a prosecutor and counselors got children to lie so they could ruin the day care providers lives. Turns out none of what the kids said was true yet the accused spent years in prison.
The “perp” ran...
I know...I read a later story that said two guys saw him do it.
Did she spit in it?
“I disagree. Certain forms of behavior are indicative of a sick mind that should be put down”
I’ve always maintained that castrating these guys is the best solution. The death penalty ought to be reserved for particularly nasty cases like Samantha Runyon.
“I’d add anyone who tortures animals for fun”
Actually, the way to gain society’s forgiveness for animal abuse is to score six touchdowns in an NFL game and contend for league MVP. ;-)
“People like that are just too dangerous to be allowed to walk around free, and since I am not willing to pay to keep them locked up until they die, I think that the humane and civilized thing to do is kill them.”
You do realize that the death penalty doesn’t really save you anything, since it costs nearly twice the amount of money to house death row inmates as normal ones.
There have always been child molesters, we just didnt have the Internet to know how big the problem was.
Yes, the slime bags have always been around, but I think there are many more today than there once were. And there are definitely more repeat offenders, as there was a time when this child’s father or brothers would have killed this roach or made him wish he was dead.
“There have always been child molesters”
Except that in past times, there was no Internet to help them fuel their urges. In addition, it used to be that even if you had such proclivities, you wouldn’t be so monumentally stupid as to act on them in a public place.
It doesn’t help having idiots like Chris Hanson who think they’re heroes, but who really just end up legitimizing this sort of behavior.
“Did she spit in it?”
Given that the drink was about 10 inches away from me the whole time, I don’t think someone could have done that without my noticing.
“Turns out none of what the kids said was true yet the accused spent years in prison.”
I can’t think of anything more horrible than egomaniac prosecutors who ruined innocent people’s lives like this.
All pedo’s should be executed immediately.
Was this guy an illegal?
If he were a TSA employee he might get away with it
Every society has unwritten rules that are enforced by its citizens, and strictly. They tend to change over time, but they are always there.
Girls in our society are taught all sorts of rules by the women and girls they meet. So it is time for a new rule to be added, for all females around the world.
Simple put, that all women and girls expect, demand, that all other women and girls carry a knife or other bladed weapon on their person when out in public, and that if attacked by a man, to cut him with it.
It truly needs to be “something that girls just do”. There is no place in the world that does not have a sharp piece of metal or even glass.
Admittedly, at first, when women cut men who attack them, some will be injured, or even killed. But many, many women are injured or killed right now, and achieve nothing in the process.
But when enough women start carrying bladed weapons, and start cutting men with them, there will be a momentous change.
Men will pause before they attack a female, and in that moment, out of the fear of being cut, many men will decide to *not* attack. They won’t know which girls and women have knives, but it won’t matter, because they might. And that is enough.
It could change everything. Far fewer girls being grabbed by molesters. Far fewer rapes, even in the blur of alcohol by the rapist. Far fewer women beaten by their boyfriends and husbands.
It won’t end it all, but it could end a lot of it. And all that it takes is for some women to start carrying knives, and when asked why they are doing so by other women, to respond, “Carrying knives is just something that girls do.”
“Don’t you have a knife? You need one to cut a man if he attacks you. Here, I have an extra. I’ll loan it to you until you can get your own.”
“I would never go out in public without my knife. I’d just feel undressed.”
“All my daughters have their own knives. It’s the smart thing to do.”
“How desperate do you have to be to think you just have to grab a girl in a store feel her up and think you can get away with it?”
I honestly cannot understand the thought process behind such behavior. You can’t pick up a prostitute somewhere if you’re that desperate for an orgasm?
You almost have to wonder if a strait jacket, a padded room, and Thorazine is what’s really needed for someone that stupid.
“Watch your kids in public places - this is apparently a not uncommon MO for predators.”
Their perverse thrill is multiplied by the risk of getting caught.
Oh, you mean something along the lines of “Touch me and your manhood gets it.”
Yeah, I think a few guys losing (or being threatened with the loss of) their male appendages might put a damper in such behavior.
“Their perverse thrill is multiplied by the risk of getting caught.”
The risk of being arrested, forced to register as a sex offender, and becoming a social pariah is thrilling? Once again, I don’t get it.
I hear what you are saying, but as another poster pointed out, years and years ago, this scumbag would have never made it to the police station. He would have been “shot trying to escape”, or something similar.
Castration doesn’t really work. Or at least, not reliably. Any farmer will tell you that removing the testes does not extinguish an animal’s sexual desires and often times does not even eliminate its ability to perform. When applied to human vermin, it might even make such creature even more dangerous because they would need a higher powered “kick” to gain release.
As for Vick. I personally dislike dogfighting, but it’s not that much worse than cockfighting or even bullfighting. I don’t think that he or any of the audience were getting a sexual thrill from the exhibitions.
You’re point on the death penalty is well-taken, but I was speaking about the way I think things should be — not the way they are. In my opinion, if one of these scumbags is caught red-handed and there is no question of guilt, a trial is a needless waste of taxpayer money.
Homicide in the public interest will do just fine.
“years and years ago, this scumbag would have never made it to the police station. He would have been shot trying to escape, or something similar.”
Police used to do a lot of things that would be unacceptable today. Heck, they shot John Dillinger from behind with no warning whatsoever, and he wasn’t a sex criminal.
“Castration doesnt really work. Or at least, not reliably. Any farmer will tell you that removing the testes does not extinguish an animals sexual desires and often times does not even eliminate its ability to perform.”
Hard to say, although it does cut down on one’s testosterone level. Of course, you can still have an erection and achieve orgasm, balls or no balls. Sometimes, castration totally removes all urges, other times not.
Even when you’re a prepubescent boy, you still have some sexual urges, although they remain weak until puberty.
“Youre point on the death penalty is well-taken, but I was speaking about the way I think things should be not the way they are.”
It’s also a fact that many death-row inmates take years to be executed, if ever, all the while costing taxpayers $90,000 a year to house (as compared to $50,000 for normal inmates). But sometimes you get lucky and nature executes them like with Jessica Lunsford’s killer getting cancer.
“a trial is a needless waste of taxpayer money.”
Perhaps, but the Constitution states that everyone is entitled to a fair trial, so whether we like it or not, that’s how the justice system works.
And people wonder why I keep my kids near me at all times.
The reason you don’t ‘get it’ is because you are a NORMAL man with normal desires combined with self-control, not a sociopathic perverted freak.
No, I don’t think there were more. It was just much easier to get away with it. Especially before modern police techniques and telephones. A person could move through an area, molest and murder a child, hide the body and be gone before very many people knew he was around. Just like serial murderers have been around forever. I read the other day that there have been 185,000 unsolved murders in the US over the past 20 years alone. That means there could be hundreds or even thousands of serial murderers out there. Up until fairly recently, putting together common data on all those murders was virtually impossible.
“The risk of being arrested, forced to register as a sex offender, and becoming a social pariah is thrilling? Once again, I dont get it.”
That’s because you are a normal healthy person.
It’s an evil spiritual and mental illness. The predator is compelled to take the risk, no matter the consequence. Usually the need for risk escalates to the point where they end up killing someone. They have no control, which is why people like this should either be put to death or never let out of jail.
That’s too much to expect. All a girl or woman would have to do is to nick the man, enough so that he sheds some blood. That is usually enough.
Remember that much of the psychology of male aggression towards females is less sexual than dominance oriented. Such attackers often have feelings of inadequacy, so they seek out a female they think is weaker than they, to brutalize.
One good nick, however, just about anywhere, will often set him on a flight panic.
Good point. It’s like trying to see the world through the eyes of a liberal.
“It was just much easier to get away with it”
In olden times, slum children were a common target. Albert Fish (a real headcase who practiced cannibalism and self-torture) admitted at his 1934 trial that he used to rape and murder black boys because no one cared about or would miss them.
