Yes, never ending is right. Now we have another case in Dallas. This guy was already in an investigation for something else while this happened.

https://www.dallasnews.com/news/cou...-woman-sues-uber-dallas-driver-accused-raping

An elderly Tarrant County woman who told police an Uber driver raped her before dropping her off in October is suing the San Francisco company and the Dallas driver for more than $1 million.

Hashem Ramezanpour, 40, is wanted on a charge of aggravated sexual assault. Fort Worth police said he may have fled the country. He is a citizen of Iran, according to court records.

Hashem Ramezanpour
(Fort Worth Police Department)
The 77-year-old woman -- identified in court records only as "Jane Doe" -- said in a lawsuit filed Thursday in Dallas that one of her sons used the Uber app on Oct. 22 to get her a ride from her friend's home back to her house.

Ramezanpour picked up the woman in his white 2016 Honda Civic. But instead of driving her home, Ramezanpour took the woman to a secluded wooded area, where he "viciously beat and raped her," according to the suit.

The woman's complaint alleges that lab tests confirmed Ramezanpour as her attacker.

"When Uber placed unsuspecting women such as Mrs. Doe, alone inside Hashem Ramezanpour's vehicle, it was like locking visitors at a zoo inside a hungry tiger's cage," the lawsuit reads.

Yes. Guess what? There's visibility because there is TRACEABILITY! What victim is going to take the time to get the license plate, medallion number, name, etc from a cabbie???

Oh, and the NYC Transportation Bomber was a HACK.
You don't NEED all that to go after a cabbie.

Just pay with a credit card and BOOM... lighting focus on which car/driver it is.

Here in Orlandoish all the taxis are required to have a vehicle# displayed inside and outside of the car.

So the taxis i drive...

Liscense plate if you can catch it.

text with the vehicle # (if you phoned in)

Vehicle number inside/outside the car

Receipts on demand (with vehicle/driver ID #)

driver name/City badge MUST be on display on person or in the vehicle.

Tracking a taxi is easier than you would think.

Uber is nothing compared to the taxi industry.
Google "mears Taxi Rape" and see what you find

You have to go back to 2004,

http://articles.orlandosentinel.com/2004-12-05/news/0412050132_1_mears-sparling-driver

It was a female driver who was sexually assaulted. So the ONE case i found? the driver was a victim.

Now we look at uber/lyft in JUST Orlando-ish...

What was I able to find about taxi drivers commiting rape in Orlando?

A cab driver in Orange county California by the name of Orlando Bruce Bosley committing rape In California.

The evidence of uber being less Rapey than taxis?

Well at least in Orlando that's not the case... not at all..

In Orlando you are infinity more likely to be raped by an uber/lyft driver than a taxi driver it seems.

Because mears is the only cab company in exsistance.

Unfortunately, the taxi industry isn't like the sitcom. It has been rife with rape over the years. Far more than Uber.

This was hashed out with chicabby years ago. You should look that thread up, if they didn't delete it. Or just do some honest research.

Now, I could leave out the fact that taxis have been around far longer than Uber, and be just like you.

But then again, that fact should simply go with out saying.
It's called a Case study...
I used Orlandoish area as a case study.

With an extra decade of back history on the taxi side I have no instances of rape making the news for taxis in the area. You can bet anything the taxi lobby is no better at covering up the media than Uber is.

Between 2014 and present we have a long string of events with fluber compared to literally nada with taxis in the area.

I didn't include all the rapes, groping etc. that went on everywhere in the world, just those in Orlandoish.

Kissimmee/Osceola county is orlandoish. Disney straddles Orange/Osceola county. There's a lot of WDW hotels and restaurants in Osceola county.

I did searches for both Mears taxi and Orlando taxi and I included the closest relevant searches.
