  1. Umm….is there some reason the alleged victim couldn’t have made a more timely call to the police? I mean, really, everybody has a cell phone so waiting HOURS to make report is inexcusable.

  2. Obnoxious. People, when you are a crime victim, you should report the crime immediately. That allows the police to do an immediate canvas and try to find the assailant, so that he doesn’t victimize someone else. And why did DPS decide to simply let her “not report the crime to police” when they found out about it the next day. Reporting a crime isn’t about her rights — it’s about keeping society safe.
