“Sharon Duvernay, who now wants to move, said she plans to buy guard dogs and update her security system as well as install cameras on all sides of her home. ‘We’re putting better lighting everywhere and we’re thinking about barb-wired or razor-wired fencing,’ she said. ‘Regular activities, like taking out the trash, and every little noise will put me on high alert.'” What’s prompting all of the alarm in little Lake Los Angeles, California? The fact that 63-year-old Christopher Hubbart, aka The Pillowcase Rapist, is being released and will be moving in next door . . .
Hubbart’s attacked 40 women and girls during his prolific career. And according to this foxnews.com account, past attempts at releasing him back into the wild aren’t giving Duvernay or any of her neighbors much comfort.
“He [Hubbart] was released once and he raped 19 women,” Duvernay said. “The second time he was released, he tried to pull a jogger into the bushes. I think he’s very ill and has no impulse control. He will absolutely try to do this again.”
Local LEOs aren’t exactly thrilled about having Hubbart moving into their jurisdiction either.
“Clearly this wasn’t our choice for placement either,” said Capt. Patrick Nelson of the Lancaster Sheriff’s Station. “But we’re confident we have a good response plan, at least for the first portion of the reintegration when he [Hubbart] will have 24-hour supervision” by a state contractor who supervises sexually violent predators.
So Duvernay, who was herself a rape victim as a child, is planning on adding lighting, dogs, security cameras, an alarm system and concertina wire as preventive measures. Notable by its absence in her reported security plan, though, is any mention of something like, say, a Remington 870 Express or perhaps a Mossy 500. Ms. Duverany wouldn’t go amiss by home carrying a Ruger LC9 either. Of course, being a resident of the Golden State, her chances of getting a concealed carry permit are about the same as California voters wising up about their Second Amendment rights.
Some will no doubt counsel Ms. Duvernay that if she ever finds Hubbart lurking on her rural property, her default response should be to shoot, shovel and shut the hell up, but we couldn’t possibly comment.
