‘Red Underwear Rapist’ Charged

UPDATE: 8/21/2007: Rivera is back in Charlotte.

Last week, police discovered Jose Cristobal Rivera-Mejia‘s DNA matched that of the suspect in three different unsolved rape cases from 2004 & 2005. Rivera is an illegal alien & repeat offender who has managed to accumulate nine arrests and ten felony charges within the past three years. This isn’t counting the 16 felony charges related to the three rape cases.

Rivera was deported last November after he was arrested and identified as an illegal alien… He re-entered the US within months and continued his criminal behavior. Rivera’s latest arrest was on June 19th. He was charged with breaking and entering with force, larceny and resisting a police officer.

Once again, the Mecklenburg County Sheriff’s Dept. sent Rivera back to Atlanta for deportation. In the meantime, police forensically connected Rivera to the three rapes. All deportation efforts were stopped. Rivera will return to Charlotte to face the rape related charges.

Police have confirmed Rivera is the ‘red underwear rapist,’ who attacked a woman on East Blvd in September 2005. The victim was jogging in the Dilworth community when Rivera (wearing only red underwear) grabbed her, took her behind a building at knife point and raped her. Rivera attacked another woman after he talked his way into her home and he attacked the third victim outside her apartment.

The Charlotte Observer printed an article today titled, ‘Deported, but not out of U.S. for Good.’ The article sheds some light on some deported illegal alien repeat offenders who continue to come back to the states… and commit more crime.

    It occurred to me while reading this story that we can solve 2problems at once. Illegals, and that is the proper term, coming here and comitting crimes is a major problem. It seems Mexican nationals are certainly not being disuided from coming here by there government, and apparently not ours.

    Wouldn’t it be nice, and maybe even make sense, if we were to take about 50% of the people being housed in our prisons for things like pedophilia, rape, and murder….brand them with the phrase USA convist (preferably on the forehead) and bus them all to Mexico (Southern Mexico) and just drop them off with paperwork that says they are what we are trading as our part of the Nafta agreement?

    We’d send a message and ease prison overpopulation in one fell swoop.

    Or perhaps we could just use them to test the air quality on Mars!

    It’s a shame when your “yellow alertness” starts showing its face.

    I’ve seen this creep at the bus stop behind Starbucks on East Blvd. in Dilworth. In his black hoodie watching every female that had to walk to the back lot. I was so uncomfortable I took the lid off my hot coffee to use if needed! Connecting his mug to that day…he is a predator! Feed him to the sharks!!

    Is it not time this guy was put to death. How many more lives does he have to ruin. He is the scum of the earth and evidently continues to live in our country. We do not need all the dirt bags from Mexico in our country. Do we have to take up arms??? Our country does not seem to care. This is a good example of what is entering our country. Can the law not put a stop to him once and for all. He is not worth a trial. This is the type of person the crooked lawyers and judges keep putting back into our society. End his career of crime.

    Plus our tax dollars will be used to provide him an attorney. Only in America.

    25-30% of our jail space is taken up by illegal aliens who have committed a crime. Get rid of illegal immigration and we would have the resources to try the many cases that “fall through the cracks.”

    Get rid of illegal immigration means building a wall or legalizing all the illegals?

    That statement is dangerously ambiguous.

    Our country is far to easy on all criminals but when those criminals are illegals~should the same rules apply? I think not. I understand everyone wants to live in a civilized society but thats simply impossible to do today. We, as a community and country, need to respond in the same manner were treated. Taking the high road does not always yield positive results. A few bullets will speak volumes. I see no reason why tax payers, people who do not break the law, should continue to support felons of our own country let alone those who do not legally belong here. Its really time to take a stand against immigration AND crime. That means changing our mindsets. Maybe shooting criminals isnt the answer but Ill tell you~the response from the criminal sector will change. When they realize there is a punishment for their actions, they will go elsewhere to create mayhem! The problem is, this country has become so PC~one of the major contributors to our downfall~who really stands together and supports the notion to stop criminals in their tracks?

    Ending illegal immigration means building a wall, combined with mass deportation (not amnesty).

    If your not paying taxes and contributing to society(in a positive way), then you should go back to the land of which you came.

    Great idea. Let’s think rationally. People will move to any area that has the greatest benefits, with the fewest disadvantages.

    Let’s find a way to remove the benefits to illegals and they will find another place to go, possibly even home.

    Hope he wears those red underwear in prison. His fellow inmates will love those.

    A concealed carry law for hand guns would have solved this problem long ago. Would any woman not be willing to pull the trigger on this guy if she was attacked?
