Shades of Grey

http://patch.com/illinois/lincolnpark/accused-50-shades-grey-rapist-tried-act-out-movie-fantasy-his-uic-dorm

A college student was inspired by the movie 50 Shades of Grey.  He convinced a girlfriend to come to his room, then tied her up and raped her and beat her.  His roommate came back and the girlfriend was released.  She called the police right away.

The police responded, located him and arrested him for a number of charges.  It is important to be aware of recent crime trends in your area and nationally.  Copy cat criminals are an old phenomena.  Now in the age of instant media, many criminals are being inspired by actions in TV shows and movies.

It is important to stay current on crimes in the news, in the media.  Trends of dangerous behavior are also important.  Years ago several students were killed because they saw a show with kids laying down on the yellow line in the center of the road.  Kids saw recent movies showing cars driver under the trailers on 18 wheelers, and they emulated those behaviors.  Keep up with popular media; that's what the SGT Says.
