The Los Angeles Daily News has issued the following report:

"The drummer for '80s glam band POISON was arrested on a rape warrant issued out of Mississippi as he arrived at LAX after getting off a flight from New Zealand, police said.

Rikki Rockett, 46, was arrested Monday at the airport and booked into the Los Angeles County Jail, according to Los Angeles police and the Los Angeles County Sheriff Department's Inmate Information website. He was held on a strong-arm rape warrant stemming from Neshoba County, Missisippi, and appears to have been released from L.A. County custody, the Sheriff's Web site shows. His status today could not be confirmed.

Details about the warrant were not immediately available."

Rape has very little to do with the act of sex. Its about 80 percent the control/steal aspect. It has to do with being a completely f***ed up individual.

Please, there could be another side to this story.
Star struck girl has too many drinks and accompanies him upstairs. Boyfriend finds out. Girl freaks and blames Rockett.
Don't think it can happen? Well, it happened to me. Thank God I wasn't arrested, but it scared the living hell out of me.

That was the plot in a film called Vulgar. A clown gets raped by some gangsters, goes on to become a popular childrens entertainer and they blackmail him. I've never seen it though. Kevin Smith film I think.

Sometimes you don't need a great shirt to get you laid, just a great chat up line. Such as

Though that's yet to work for me either :P

In the meantime I find it difficult to believe Rikki did this.But stranger thing's have happend.I help teach a self defense class & part of what I do is teach people about reality so to speak.The truth is you never really know what to expect from people.Rape really is more about power than anything else.That's why it's so devastateing.One of my student's was very nearly raped by a neighbor.She got out of it by acting like she wanted it.This caused the guy to be repulsed.He actually called her crazy and ran out of the house nearly vomitting in the process.She called the cop's and had him arrested.But it just goes to show you.There are some truly sick people out there.

Hey thanks BlackDog for the great tip! Really never thought about that being a way of detering a rapeist. Thank you again. I think I shall spread that around to any female who will listen. It could really help them and it may help me too. If it does not work and he presist then I am going to have to just kill the guy. I never leave my home unarmed. That is how women get hurt.

Hey don't take my word for it.That's was pretty much an extreme case.By all mean's if your in that situation & it's all you can think to do then try it.But I do not recomend that as a deterent in any way.What I would suggest is a good self defense program.The world we live in is a very different place than it was so many years ago.I honestly think S.D. should be taught in high school by atleast by junior year.Everyone should know how to protect themselves.Simply because there are people out there that don't like you or don't like themselves or are angry at their parent's or that bully in the playground or whoever & some of them are gonna try and take it out on you.Just because your a convenient or easy target.Rape is just one of the way's they might do it.Here's an interesting fact.80 to 90 percent of all violent crime victims are attacked by people they actually know or are atleast familliar with.

It just seems like a brilliant use of reverse psycology. Of course having a second corse of action is a good thing, but if killing the man can be avoided useing reverse psycology then it is better. Then he can be sent to jail and be truely raped. Hahaha!
