Two LAPD Officers Raped At Least 4 Women, Department Tries To Bury Case
Los Angeles strung along and tried to bury the case of a woman who was sexually assaulted by a police officer while his partner stood watch, the woman claims in court.
Tara McMahon demands $1 million in damages from Officer Luis Valenzuela, who she claims attacked her in late 2009 in his car while his partner, defendant Officer James Nichols, kept watch.
The woman, who first came forward in January 2010, told a supervisor for officers James Nichols and Luis Valenzuela that they were dressed in plain clothes and driving a Volkswagen Jetta. Valenzuela threatened to take the woman to jail if she refused to get in the car, then got into the back seat with her and exposed himself, telling the woman to touch him, according to a warrant affidavit.
“McMahon finally worked up the courage to report them - but then she was stonewalled and strung along for nearly three years by an LAPD Internal Affairs detective who mixed false promises that the officers would be brought to justice with a repeated command: Don’t talk to a lawyer," the complaint states.
“McMahon then realized that the city had been trying to keep her quiet and avoid being sued," the complaint states.
“Internal Affairs did nothing. The officers remained on the job and sexually assaulted at least three more women the way they assaulted McMahon.”
Nichols and Valenzuela preyed on at least four women over several years when they worked together as narcotics officers in the LAPD's Hollywood Division, the warrant affidavit said. The officers had arrested the women or used them as informants before targeting them, according to the affidavit.
In July 2012, investigators heard reports from prostitutes that patrol officers in the Northeast Division were picking up prostitutes and letting them go in exchange for oral sex, the warrant affidavit said.
McMahon says she later learned from a story in the Los Angeles Times that investigators had raided Nichols’ and Valenzuela’s homes. Though the Times reported that the two had been suspended, McMahon says the men were neither fired nor indicted for assaults on her and the other women.
She seeks punitive damages. She is represented by Daniel Miller with Miller Barondess.
Sex offenders minimize their number of victims. Speaking with 99 male sex offenders, court records showed 136 victims between them, but later during treatment, they eventually confessed to 959 victims between them.

huh weird so rapists are, like, lying about the number of people they’ve raped but all we can focus on are those damn hypothetical lying women who lied about being assaulted? lying liars lying all the time damn women lying. there’s a bigger lie in our midst, it would seem

Ten rape prevention tips:

1. Don’t put drugs in women’s drinks.

2. When you see a woman walking by herself, leave her alone.

3. If you pull over to help a woman whose car has broken down, remember not to rape her.

4. If you are in an elevator and a woman gets in, don’t rape her.

5. When you encounter a woman who is asleep, the safest course of action is to not rape her.

6. Never creep into a woman’s home through an unlocked door or window, or spring out at her from between parked cars, or rape her.

7. Remember, people go to the laundry room to do their laundry. Do not attempt to molest someone who is alone in a laundry room.

8. Use the Buddy System! If it is inconvenient for you to stop yourself from raping women, ask a trusted friend to accompany you at all times.

9. Carry a rape whistle. If you find that you are about to rape someone, blow the whistle until someone comes to stop you.

10. Don’t forget: Honesty is the best policy. When asking a woman out on a date, don’t pretend that you are interested in her as a person; tell her straight up that you expect to be raping her later. If you don’t communicate your intentions, the woman may take it as a sign that you do not plan to rape her.
