A 73-year-old man was arrested for using a stun gun to incapacitate a woman and then raping her, Prince William County police said.

The woman, 52, told police that she and the man, whom she knew, got into an argument that escalated. He then used a stun gun on her and sexually assaulted her, police said.

Wow- I guess old age can't stop you from being a complete a-hole. 73 yrs old and still disrepectful and hateful as ever. Judging from the scratches on his face, it appears the victim put up a decent fight before she endured this maniac's assault... I hope they throw him under the jail.

Some people never learn at any age not to fool around with the American female. Guard to Michael Coreleone: Michael, in Sicily, women on more dangerous than shotguns. Double down on that for the U.S. Never ceases to amaze how so many people get into so much trouble over one of our greatest commodities. It's a power thing. Really stupid.

I wonder what the argument was about - this poor old geezer probably just needed a little help and she wouldn't offer. He can always pay for it (actually you do anyway one way or the other)if he's got any money.

I wonder if he has a record for rape, or has raped in the past and didn't get caught. It's highly unusal for a man to begin raping at his age.

chrswatkins, since 97% of the time the raper is of another race, usually black, we only get a chance to comment on a white suspect every once in a great while. hard for you to take the FACT that the reason there are more black suspects and prisoners is because they commit more crime than all the other races put together. personally I'm not obssessed with race so I'm more interested in the facts than what color the guy is, but that's just me.

@ REd2million - not sure about your stats but based on these that 97% figure is not very likely...
In reality, according to the Bureau of Justice Statistics, 38% of victims were raped by a friend or acquaintance, 28% by "an intimate" and 7% by another relative, and 26% were committed by a stranger to the victim. About four out of ten sexual assaults take place at the victim's own home.[26]- Wikipedia

You folks ought to stop with the race issue. Bottom line a woman has been violated yet again by a sad, lonely weak, abusive and sadistic man. The question you should be asking is why so many men are so volatile against women these days. Misogyny is my guess. Beware ladies.

Hope all you sickos out there celebrating this RAPIST because of his age and he can still 'cut the cake' know that many women are armed and will not blink before shooting any potential abuser that makes a wrong move...and will shoot where it counts.You too will look good in Orange...if you live.

@ red2million..It's funny how the original criminals of this country (whites) love to point out false facts of how blacks commit 97% of crime in America. Pick up a book, and read how your folks are the blueprint of these crimes. There's one called THE RISE AND FALL OF JIM CROW. It details some of the most horrific crimes committed against the human race against blacks, just because, well, they were black. Lynchings, shootings, rapes, and dismemberments of thousands and thousands of black men, woman, and children. I tried to show some people the book, and some couldnt even read it was so horrible. It also details statements from whites during the 1800's, that whites were obsessed with blacks. Obsessed with every move we make. And that still shows on some of these posts. We basically learned criminal instinct from white America...period. I think if all Americans read this book, it would open their eyes to their own ignorance. It would also show black Americans how strong we really our to have survived this atrocity.

A true man wants two things: danger and play.

For that reason he wants woman: the most dangerous plaything.

@ red2million.


No one cares what white people think of black people anymore. We have moved on beyond that. Have you?

Per Wikipedia: Although African-Americans account for only 12 percent of the U.S. population, an estimated 38.9 percent of all prisoners in the United States are black (as of 2005 DOJ data).[30] Blacks were nearly 5 times more likely than whites, nearly 3 times more likely than Hispanics to have been in jail in 2005.[30] Census data for 2000, which included a count of the number and race of all individuals incarcerated in the United States, revealed a dramatic racial disproportion of the incarcerated population in each state: the proportion of blacks in prison populations exceeded the proportion among state residents in every single state.[31] In twenty states, the percent of blacks incarcerated was at least five times greater than their share of resident population.[31] According to DOJ 2009 data, Black non-Hispanic males, with an incarceration rate of 4,749 inmates per 100,000 U.S. residents of the same race and gender, were incarcerated at a rate more than 6 times higher than white non-Hispanic males (708 inmates per 100,000 U.S. residents) and 2.6 times higher than Hispanic males (1,822 inmates per 100,000 U.S. residents).[32]

Methinks this would refute the above claims that blacks commit MOST of the crime. Individuals from all groups commit crime.

Please read THE RISE AND FALL OF JIM CROW. Oh yeah, it was written by a white guy. He says he wanted to expose the side of American history that white Americans don't want to talk about. And all of his facts were checked by numerous historians. This basically unlocks the key to why racism exist in America. Why African American's are still behind whites economically, and rates are higher for prisoners. I know it sounds like a cop out, but there is still a plan to keep Black Americans down systematically in America. This book exposes it all. Although i don't believe all whites are the same, i do believe that until Congress looks more like America, things will always be the same. This country is still being run by a white perspective, with favoritism towards whites. It's 2010, and we still have to move into their neighborhoods for better schools, and even better shopping. Something has to change.........
