Sounds like a variant of the D.E.N.N.I.S system.

I can't say for certain, but I'm going to guess the victim in this case didn't feel safe going to the police for some reason. Maybe undocumented. Maybe just a minority with bad past experiences with police. Or maybe this is one of those weird rural counties where you can't make a complaint against certain well-connected people. Whatever the reason, the law and courts were off limits.

This used to be very common in the US. Protection squads sprung up to fill the vacuums left by a distant state. That's where the American Mafia came from. Or any other organized crime you can name. I fear this is going to make a comeback.

Am I being melodramatic? This sounds a lot like the early Black Hand extortion schemes from late 19th century New York and Sicily. And how many people know they call 911 at their peril? And you know what's happening to the court system...

I've got a rock that wards off cobras. $2,461.37 and it's yours (plus shipping and handling and applicable sales tax)*

Looks like this happened in Salt Lake County, pop 1.1 million or so. Weird, maybe, but not rural.

"Rural" is more of an attitude than a population.

So who was raping this woman, and was that not covered by the "protection " money?

Jesus. Demented gaslighting extortion aside, I hope the woman finds solace and recovers from the rapes...

No money in the world.

Well...on second thought, $2,000 a year, I'll pay half to some poor IT guy in India.
