(Newser) – Another woman has been raped on a bus in Rio de Janiero, despite the mayor's pledge to boost security on public transport after the gang-rape of an American tourist in March. In the latest attack, witnesses say an armed man ordered other passengers to the front of the bus and told the driver to keep going while he raped a female passenger, the BBC reports. The man, who appeared to be on drugs, robbed other passengers before leaving the bus and fleeing across a busy highway.

Sex crimes are one of the most brutal and torturous ways to violate, then kill another person. To do this with a crowd on a bus, is a total sign of the downward spiral, we face in society today. We are only as good as our weakest link, soul, species yadda yadda ya, I am in favor of making all females wear one of those penis traps. You insert it in the lady part and if a male attempts to rape her, he will be met with pain and agony, by the claws and teeth of the chomper 12000. He will never dick a daisy again.

"An armed man ordered other passengers to the front of the bus and told the driver to keep going while he raped a female passenger" How could that have happened, Brazil has extremely strict gun control, almost a total citizen ban on all guns. How could it be that they have 4 times the gun murders than the US, and a smaller population?

We should keep the assumption that all men are rapists. It's clearly working to stop rape.
