22 arrests in Luxor for sexual harassment

Post by HEPZIBAH »

We have read posts on this forum about the lack of policing, no action being taken in the courts etc but something is being done. It may not seem it sometimes but it isn't all blind eyes and bribes and leave to the 'local way'.


Copied from the Luxor4U Facebook page.

22 people has been arrested for sexual harassment in Luxor while they were riding motorcycles.

Did they get arrested while on the motorbikes, or did they commit sexual harassment while on motorcycles ?
and, if the latter then how ? what did they do ? :tk
Oh God, my brain hurts, and it's only 10:30.. :cool:

Motorbikes have always had a bad rep' Due to it liberating the 50's and 60's kids, and the jealous elder guardians of that era... :cg

Two (or more) boys on motorbikes cruising the roads cat-calling or making obscene gestures at passing women (usually foreign women) is not uncommon.

I'm guessing this is what we're talking about....and it's good to see the authorities taking some action.

And let us not forget, its not just the females in receipt of these unwarranted comments, I've been on the receiving end of many myself over the years, or is it that the police think that male sufferers do not warrant their attention?

What's all this about 50s and 60s kids getting freedom from motorbikes BM ??????? :lol. They should also be charged for driving without due care and attention. If you are sexually harassing people then your mind is not on your riding and therefore "Due Care and Attention" Offence has been committed. I spent 4 hours riding around Luxor today shopping, and just thought that I would go back a few years and look around for traffic offences in Luxor, if the same laws applied here and every offence was a 30le fine then I would have made over 3000le in the 4 hours, and I would have taken over 30 vehicles off the road for Construction and Use Offences. Given 1week I may have solved Luxors traffic problem and paid for a new computer system for our traffic police, to give them a more slicker operation, than what is provided for them at this present time.

:stp I do hope that you were doing your 'police spotter' bit whilst walking. After all, it would be a crime if you were doing this whilst riding your motorbike around without due care and attention!

I have heard of the bag snatchers, so ladies beware. Tip-Wear your strap overhead and not resting on the shoulder as it is easily pulled off you. The strap overhead prevents theft and is itself a deterrent. As for the sexual harassment, these boys must be bored without so many tourists around. Usually they are just happy to rip around the roads at speed. I have been on a few bikes and boy they know how to handle the machine so long as their mind is on the job.

I am well aware that I have a great deal of pavement attraction to the hunters eye. :up It is something that I've come to accept. It is a well known fact that us oldies are an attraction to a certain section of the younger generation, something that I have no problem with, but do not desire to be invited to suck on an Egyptian banana :ks or test out the limits of stretch of an Egyptian mans galabeya. :stp I think that this unwanted attention is due to the fact that I don short socks to accompany my sandals while out. :urm:

What would you think Hepzibah? If you got stopped for speeding in the UK, would the Police Motorcyclist have got off his motorbike and ran after you on foot to book you? :lol:
Due to the intensive training of police vehicle drivers they can both ride safe and look for and prosecute offenders.

Wearing your bag strap over your head makes no difference. Just makes the conflict longer and more violent. And they still get it.

I'm sure that the UK Police Motorcyclists are highly trained. However, you must take into account the advancing years, lack of retraining and testing, and just the regularity of the job. Nothing stays the same - especially given the passage of time and change of location. It must be some years now since you were officially 'on the job'!
