Homeless Man Saves Woman From Rape

This story out of Miami made me cheer.

Police are searching for a man who tried to rape a woman at Bayfront Park Monday morning.

Sebastian Baxter, a homeless man who witnessed the attack, ran for help when he saw the man drag the woman into some bushes. "He tried to get the female to come in the woods," said Baxter. "So, she says, 'No.' Next thing you know he grabbed her, and he snatched her in the woods."

We should all be thanking Sebastian Baxter and others like him who have the courage to actively prevent rape. Thanks also go to the security guard Gerald Etienne.

There are men on this earth that would help a woman being attacked instead of joining in? Color me shocked.

Anonymous, you are scolding the wrong person. Rather than going after the first anonymous for being shocked you should be going after all the men who rape and all the men who fail to work against rape. They are the ones who creating the problem you complain about.

If fewer men raped and more men joined the effort to prevent rape at the source (the rapist) fewer women would be shocked when a man stands up against a rapist.
