Social Media WIN!  An OH Woman managed to Post a Real Time Video of her Sexual Assault to Snapchat, prompting a Friend to call the Police and helping Cops to locate and Arrest the Rapist… Scroll down to read more!

Below is a picture (a mug shot actually) of 77 y/o James Allen of Danbury Township, Ohio. 

Jim was booked into the Ottawa County Jail on Tuesday, August 8th, 2017 on rape charges and is being held on $1mil bail.

Jim was arrested after an unnamed friend of an unnamed woman called police to report that her unnamed friend had posted a video on Snapchat which purported to be her (the unnamed woman) being raped by Jimbo.  (Note that I am not passing judgment on Jimbo, I am merely re-reporting that which has already been formally alleged – but I do cop to the fact that I occasionally lack impulse control when it comes to what I believe to be an apropos MEME.)

Anyhow, according to Ottawa County Prosecutor James VanEerten the video clearly shows a sexual assault taking place, it is unclear whether the young woman live-streamed the attack or posted the video shortly afterward, it appears that the woman was impaired while recording the video and he asked people to stop sharing the video on social media.

Memo to the Folks:  If this woman was able to live-stream her sexual assault then that is both terrifying and likable all rolled up at once. But for the video the rapist may well have gotten away with it, only to besiege and torture another victim; yet because of the video the victim may well be forced to relive this experience in ways unimaginable to most people.
