A group of activists are outraged over the promotion of an NYPD Captain from the 94th Precinct to Deputy Inspector, following comments he made earlier this year about date rape cases.
Deputy Inspector Peter R. Rose, who was promoted in an NYPD ceremony on Tuesday, came under fire in January for the way he addressed a 2016 trend that saw an increase in rape and attempted rape cases within the 94th Precinct, most of which were classified as acquaintance rapes.
“It’s not a trend that we’re too worried about because out of 13 [sex attacks], only two were true stranger rapes,” then Capt. Rose said to DNAInfo before the precinct community council meeting.
