Allow Me To Retort

I know I shouldn't speculate, but allow me to speculate.

The Keller police released this drawing today of a suspect in a rape case. Here's what's weird: (1) The attack allegedly occurred in broad daylight near noon* near midnight on a Friday, (2) in fairly upscale Keller, (3) in a public park (4) with no witnesses, (5) while an accomplice stood as look-out for almost 30 minutes, and (6) and the victim didn't report it until the 5:00 p.m. the next day.

I'm not saying it didn't happen, I just saying that before we haul in some poor Hank Hill looking guy, convict him, and lock him up for 20 years before some Star Trek-like science clears him, we might want to tap the brakes on this one.

*OK, I've now learned the difference between "AM" and "PM". The victim just happened to be sitting in the grass by herself around midnight.

Edit: Two weeks later it was determined that the report was false.
