Cop impersonator rapes woman on West Side of Chicago

Chicago police are searching for a trio of suspects, including one that impersonated a police officers, in the rape of woman on the West Side.  The woman was driving down the 3400 block of West Chicago Avenue when a person impersonating a cop flashed his headlights and pulled the woman’s car over.  She turned over her driver’s license and followed the suspect to another location, as the fake cop demanded.  Upon arriving at that location, the woman was sexually assaulted by another suspect.  A third suspect was also involved, however his role in the crime is not clear.  More information here.

In the above situation, and countless others, innocent people have been harmed by the action of a criminal. Had there been an armed, law abiding citizen in the area, tragedy may very well have been averted. Americans use guns for self defense every 13 seconds, and that is perhaps the best reason to have a gun. These people are certainly glad they had a gun for self defense.
