1963: LAPD Warns Hitchhikers of Predatory Homosexuals.


 

“Photograph article dated July 18, 1963 partially reads, “Valley police have been issuing citations in recent months to teen-agers who hitchhike up and down Van Nuys Blvd. The department is worried because several Valley youths have been the victims of homosexuals who pick them up and refuse to let them out of the car. Capt. Hagan pointed out that hitchhiking is against the law when it is done on freeways or any roadway where the hitchhiker walks out and stands in the roadway. The hitchhiker, however, is within the law if he stays on the sidewalk.” Motor Officer J. E. Nibes is about to tell Jeff Sillifant, North Hollywood, that he’s breaking the law. ”
