A serial rapist is at large in Texas. Police have a composite sketch, but not much else.
In November of 2005, Smith said the rapist burst into her apartment in Plano. He terrorized her, ransacked the apartment and held a gun to her head, she said.No chance to call for help. She was on her own.
But Smith has not been silent. She's now applying for her license to carry a concealed handgun, and she encourages others do the same.When seconds count, police are minutes away. That is not a dig against police, just a recognition of reality.
"If someone were to break into my home again, they wouldn't find someone pulling the covers up and screaming. They would find a gun pointed at them," said Smith.
