While searching for a weekly criminal to offer up for Wicked Wednesday, I stumbled across an article about Sergeant Nomsa Masuku - a woman who makes it her business to hunt down rapists and bring them to justice. Most recently, she was the lead investigator who brought down a man who subsequently was convicted of 30 counts of rape and 42 counts of kidnapping.
This gal rocks. A 40-year old mother in South Africa with three kids and 15 years on the force, I imagine she doesn't take shit from anyone.
Putting her own safety on the line, she would dress in casual clothes and go bar-hopping with a male colleague (because the rapist liked to target couples), in an attempt to draw this asshole out. She didn't get him then, but eventually - posing as an ex-girlfriend of his who wanted her child support - she got inside his home, got him to admit who he was, and then arrested his sick ass.
You go, girl.
One less asshole off the streets.
The world needs more officers like her.
