  • LyonSteve

    Woman, walking alone at 1am on a Tuesday night?

    I do like how they put “baby face” in the blotter.

    • Lou

      The Babyface Flasher. Sounds like a one man crime spree.

    • I guess for someone who exposes themself it is better to be described as having a “baby face” than having a “baby *****”. In reality, he just has a baby mind to be doing this kind of thing.

      • maybe she meant it looked like a baby’s arm holding and apple?

    We’re told the “bigot” suspect is white and nothing about the victim’s race. But if that teenage “bigot” used a white racial slur against a white victim, is the suspect still a bigot? What about a non-white racial slur against a white kid? Bigoted? White racial slur against a non-white victim?

    Or does there have to be a race difference AND an applicable slur for a bigoted comment to count?

    I’ll just choose not to label the kid.

    • Yes, I would say that anyone who spits on someone while calling them a racial slur is displaying bigoted behavior.

    • mehoo

      Yes, a black suspect calling a white person a racial slur is also a bigot, and nobody thought otherwise.

    • No H8

      I believe this was a black male calling a white male an anti-gay name while threatening to assault him. Either way, the hate and bullying has got to end…

  • Sara

    There used to be a registered sex offender near Highland and 9th Street North. I believe he is now listed at Kenmore near 6th Street. (See http://www.crimereports.com.) No woman should be walking alone at 1am. That simply is not wise.

  • The guy stealing the bike was described as 6’2″ tall, 170. He was confronted by the victim and then the victim was assaulted. Now, if my bike were being stolen, my confrontation with the thief would likely come in the form of a terrorist-style kick in the nuts or punch in the face. Or, I’d just call the police rather than confront him at all. All or nothing. Expect an assault and either avoid it or attack full force before he can realize what is happening.
