    Police: Good Samaritans Stop Rape In Progress
    http://www.kptv.com/news/14441750/detail.html

    SALEM, Ore. -- Five Good Samaritans stopped a rape in progress in a south Salem neighborhood, according to police.

    Officers said a 22-year-old woman on crutches was walking near the intersection of Liberty and Boone streets southeast just before 1 a.m. Saturday when she was attacked and assaulted by 37-year-old Paul Landingham.

    According to authorities, a car with five people was driving by, saw what was happening and came to the woman's rescue.

    Three men pulled Landingham off the woman and held him until police arrived at the scene.

    The victim was transported to an area hospital.

    Landingham was taken into custody on first-degree rape charges.

    Hahaha! It's about time that an article comes out where people have the balls to get involved and help someone in need. This needs to happen more often!

    Call me angry, violent, bloodthirsty or what have you; but I yearn for the days when shit like this happened, you could just throw a beating into someone and it not even be noticed by the public.

    Around this part of town, those Good Samaritans at the minimum would had their asses villified by the press and the "PIO" of our PD here in town.

    They deserve a fucking medal and some "Get Out Of Speeding Ticket" coupons.

    Looks like they held him down alright...deep into the pavement. Bravo!

    Depends on how you were raised. Most people now days stay out of situations because they don't know how or when to get involved.

    Its good to see that people aren't afraid to get their hands dirty. And good job in holding him to the pavement. He deserved to eat concrete.
    Being the best is not what always counts. What counts is always trying your best.

    Remember who you are, and where you came from. That way you never get a big head.


    May those that lost their lives in 9-11 RIP, for the things you did not many could do. You left so many behind so that you could save so few. For now we stand strong as one, and will not look back till the fight is done. (me)

    My guess is they knocked him over, and he just rolled onto his fat face, then repeated the process several times as he rolled on down the street.

    yes. unfortunately, good people are often afraid to step up and do it, whether it is for liability reasons, or pansy reasons

    i LOVE to see a story that ends like this, although i'm really hoping he didn't manage rape the victim...hopefully he was just trying to. sounds like he might have succeeded though

    every time i come across this thread, i have to click it just to see the guy's face.

    the only thing i wish they would have done differently is kicked him in the head enough to cause some permanent damage...and a lifetime of pain.
