Pueblo Police Warn Residents About Sexual Predator


Pueblo police are issuing a community warning about a sexually violent predator.

Police say Emmanuel Bitsuie is now living at a home on the 1200 block of East Evans Avenue in Pueblo. He had been listed as homeless until recently.

Bitsuie has most recently been convicted of attempted 1st degree sexual assault, and in the past was convicted of felony menacing. He is currently on intensive supervised parole for the next 22 months, and will be tracked using a GPS ankle monitor.

    Hi Ryan, Thank you for the kind words. I have chosen to use the crime that was committed against me as a positive. It has made me a stronger more confident person. I have been through therapy and everything happens for a reason and I have taken his power back. I do think you are correct that the time should fit the crime. It is a very sad state of of our legal system when you get more jail time for kicking your dog than you do for beating your wife. How is that fair?

    @AbuseVictim: I'm very sorry for what you have gone through, and based on plenty of data (as was true in your case as well), many sexual predators do not stop. This fails my points of protecting the public and reasonable punishment. I don't have the numbers with me here, but I've read studies that many rapists will continue their terror after being released. This is why if judges had common sense they would realize that the jail terms are not long enough, because they apparently forget that it's solely meant to protect society from the person. Warning people that this person is sexually violent acknowledges that once again society is at risk because the system admits that he was not in long enough to change.

    Hi All, I would like to add that as a sexual assault victim myself I think this program is a great tool. Please keep in mind it is just a tool my abuser is on these lists and I believe people need to be aware that people like this DO NOT STOP EVER!!! My abuser was convicted and 1 month after he was released from his "reasonable" punishment he raped two more young women before he was caught and convicted again. All I can say is be aware of your surroundings, people you are with and ALWAYS know where your children are. That can prevent a lot of pain and therapy in the future. I am not judging anyone just saying I have been there and if I had known that there was a sex offender in the area I would have never sold him that candy bar!! It changed my life forever.

    Marie, I also appreciate your point but in the case of this specific crime I don't believe it applies. Once you have been convicted of any sexually violent offense I don't believe you should have that right to privacy that you seem to be implying was trampled on.

    After reading comment #2, I wonder who the public needs to be warned about. I appreciate the fact that the police department has to issue these warnings under the current law. HOWEVER, sometimes things are not as they seem. People accused of crimes are sometimes not always guilty in the truest sense of the classification of that law. My heart goes out to any victim, please don't misunderstand my comments. I support the police department 100% but am not so supportive of how some laws are written.

    Jail time is meant to do two things: 1) Protect society & 2) Provide reasonable punishment. Warning residents that he is still sexually violent fails common sense point #1. I'm running for mayor in 2012 and will debunk everyone. Nuff said.
