There was Relda...in the late 1960's a method where a lone woman was approached on escalators and rendered unconcious by different means. While being held up,"Sir? Can you help me? My sister here is sick and I need to get her into the car. Can you help me? Security usually would.
Long before Snopes or even computers, this was a known method of robbery. Even in the Shanghi Tunnels of Portland Oregon in the 1800's, men would be drugged...and wake up out to sea on some ship. Hence the use of the word "Shanghi'd".
The recent stories may be untrue occurences, but the method of slipping someone something like "ruffies" or a "Bill Cosby Qualude" is real...very real. And women and everyone...should never leave drinks unattended either.
To convince readers the method is untrue...is harmful in the long run of known historical drugging and robbing unsuspecting people. Women and men alike.
