Date Rape Protection and Evidence UOP

You don’t need to be forced to have sex for it to be rape. Date Rape can be emotionally coerced with threats, name calling, too much alcohol, and or drugs. It is the most common form of Rape.

Many Date Rapes are planned. The use of Date Rape drugs is one way a rapist plans an attack.

You may hear Date Rape Drugs called, Rohypnol, GHB, ActiveSex, Rope, Rib, R-2, Roofies, Roche, Ruffies, and Liquid Persuasion. These drugs are difficult to detect when mixed with drinks or other drugs. They are odorless and tasteless.

At Parties or gatherings:

1. Never drink from a glass or open bottle you have left unattended for even a second. It takes a blink of an eye to drop powder or liquid into a drink.

2. Never accept drinks from strangers even if a waiter delivers it from the stranger

3. Open cans or bottles of drink yourself and listen to that rush sound when it opens. Discard anything that doesn’t.

4. Punch bowls are often spiked with drugs. Never accept drinks from one.

5. If you order a drink from the bar, always take yours directly from the bartender

6. If possible drink from a bottle, because  it’s harder to drop a drug into a bottle than an open glass

7. Don’t go to bars and clubs by yourself – always go with a trusted friend

8. If you feel drunk after just one alcoholic drink, you may have been drugged. Seek help from a trusted friend, if possible one you pre-planned to come with.

9. If possible always have one designated non drinker when you go out; if not have Taxi money and use it.

10. Never share some-one’s drink. It is a known way to get a victim to drink a drugged drink.

11. If you think you have been targeted, leave with your friends and have your planned self defense, such as Pepper Spray, Ready to use.

Other Places:

1. Avoid secluded places, even your own, or partners room until you trust your partner

2. If you are with someone and you feel uncomfortable or uneasy, your instincts are kicking in. Listen to them, make an excuse and leave.

3. If you walk, jog, go to the movies, or any other activity try to go with trusted friends.

4. Always have your self defense in mind. Have your Pepper Spray ready to use.

When any kind of rape does occur, any evidence that can be preserved is a better chance to convict a rapist. Once a rapist gets away with it, he/ she will do it again. What you as a victim can do to help stop it:

1. If your a victim of rape and you are injured, get to a hospital emergency room. Most Hospitals have staff trained specifically to help and treat victims of this type of crime.

2. Notify the police. Don’t change clothes, wash up externally or internally, smoke, eat, or drink. If you must drink, try to use a straw and only drink water. Saliva, semen, sweat, blood, or other trace evidence can help positivly identify the suspect and /or prove the crime.

3. Try not to go to the bathroom until a urine sample can be taken. Drug metabolites can be found by toxicologists for evidence.

4. Write down as much information as you can, as soon as you can and while your memory is fresh. Try to do this before you talk to friends about what happened, because you may forget to repeat small details to the police.  In police work we try to write down who,  what, when, where, why, and how.  As examples: try to remember suspect(s) description; race, clothing, facial hair, glasses, scars, tattoos, and weapon (if there is one);  location, day or night, vehicle description-make- model- license number; and any other detail you remember leading up to and after the rape happened.

5.  Call a trusted friend or family member to come and be with you for emotional support. Tell them what happened after you write it down. Have them bring a change of clothing, including under wear, because the clothing you are wearing will be collected as evidence.

6. Rape is an assault and you are the victim. Don’t let a rapist let you feel otherwise.
