Resolution, sorta.

Someone in the office of City Council President Lisa Borders was kind enough to help me get some information from the police. Here’s the note they sent to me:


I have contacted the ADP Zone 3 precinct for further information and was informed that after a search of the area, the women in question was never found. Unless something new turns up, there will be no further investigation of this incident. Should you have further questions, please contact Sgt. Yubuka, Zone 3, at 404.624.0674.

Please contact our office again if we may be of assistance in the future.

Ailena Gibby
Communications Associate
Lisa Borders, Atlanta City Council President

That kinda settles this in my mind. If the woman doesn’t want to be found, I have to assume (and in my ‘hood, it’s a safe assumption) that she’s a hooker. That someone is a prostitute doesn’t justify anyone attacking her or tossing her from a car naked, but that’s less frightening than the thought of people randomly being grabbed and raped.

City of Atlanta Scorecard:

Police: Quick to respond to 911, but unwilling to do much else. I shouldn’t have to call the President of the City Council to get a simple answer.

And of course, there’s that tiny matter of the cops tolerating prostitutes and drug dealers standing along Dill Ave all day and all night even though me and my neighbors call the cops about it constantly.

City Council President Lisa Borders: A++. She was able to get me what I needed, some information. She has no authority over police matters and she’s only been in office since last summer, no I don’t hold her at all responsible for their misdeeds.

Council Member Joyce Shepard: Still haven’t heard back from her.
