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.

I don't know how it is there in Decatur, but it's normally pretty dark at 11:50pm in Keller...

By looking at the neck on the sketch, this person is waaaaay too short to be Ed Winfrey!!! I did hear a rumor yesterday that their was a celebtity in the Roanoke/Keller area eating at Babe's fried chicken parlor. I wonder if it was Drew Carrie???

Keller is not "upscale."

I am sorry for the woman, but why would anyone, in this day and time, be sitting at the park at midnight by themselves?? Not very safe in my book.

almost thirty minutes......????

I dont think it fair that rapists have all the stamina in the world.

That area is not upscale. That park is very close to homes and it would not be unusual for an 18 year old living near there to step out and walk over the park at that hour. Kids do that these days to go talk on the phone or just get a break. The delay in reporting might have been the result of fear, needing to talk to someone else first, or any number of reasons related to what was a traumatic event. I would not classify the rapist as some poor

Those police artist sketches are retarded. They either look dead-nut like the person(Like the dude must have posed)or they could look like anybody. That picture looks a LOT like me. I'm staying in for the day.

"PM- pefore midnight"

Is "pefore" a word? an abbreviation?
Is it like...Lb is for pound...where did the "Lb" come from in pound?

Poster number 3....When is Keller NOT in the dark?

It appears be a device to help people remember the difference between am and pm.
