In the late nineties I was involved with a case called the Eastside rape case. The case was a serial rapist who at gunpoint raped and sodomized at least sixteen victims. It was a terror campaign that one out for at least three years. This case still haunts me to this day. We were doing all we could capture this rapist. I wanted to do a mailing in the community. The mailer was so important to us, to get it to every single person that lived in the areas where he was attacking these women. The mailers costs you know anywhere between ten and forty-thousand dollars to do. Mr. Trump would willingly give the between the ten and forty-thousand dollars that we needed. And that happened just within a few days. Donald Trump was definitely a leader who stepped up for the cops, the detectives and the women in this case. There is absolutely no doubt.
