Oh, boy  

Frederick Gaston, 51, admitted to assaulting and raping a 26-year-old woman who was drunk, vomiting and passing in and out of consciousness.

A Miami Uber driver raped a female passenger over Labor Day weekend last year, later calling it “good sex” and saying it’s simply a “perk” of the job.

The Miami New Times reports that a 26-year-old woman was drunk with a male friend in Miami’s Wynwood district in September 2017 when 51-year-old Uber driver Fredrick Gaston offered the two a ride home. The woman, who has not been identified, was doubled over vomiting and passing in and out of consciousness.”

    This is absolutely disgusting that he was hired by Uber. According to the article there has been 100 drivers in 4 years accused of sexually assaulting women. Even if only a few were guilty thats a few too many. These aholes give decent drivers a bad name. Uber's rep is all ready trashed. When is Uber not in the news for negative things? You cant blame Travis for all of it. Dara could've made Uber do better background checks than the 3rd party ones still being done. Maybe it would weed out these criminals and give decent, hard working, law abiding drivers more riders/trips. You would think they would want this bad publicity to stop but they dont care as long as people are still willing to ride. Shame on the male passenger also for getting dropped off 1st knowing that the girl was so intoxicated. Not that he should have to worry about that happening but its a known fact that it has happened. Not saying it gives a man the right to rape an intoxicated passenger but whats wrong with thes...

Not saying it gives a man the right to rape an intoxicated passenger but whats wrong with these women getting that drunk and getting into a car with a stranger again knowing this happens. I hear it all the time females mostly young telling me they pass out from being intoxicated in an Uber all the time. It sucks that drivers cant be trusted but women need to be more careful.

    Starting to become a pattern. See this line:

    Gaston reportedly had a history of predatory and violent behavior prior to working at Uber. Despite his criminal history, Gaston was still hired by Uber.
