The City Too Busy To Tell You If There’s a Rapist On The Loose

I just finished my first round of follow-up with the police to find out if in fact a woman was raped on the street 1.5 blocks from my house last night.

Do you think the city was helpful? You tell me:

I called the Zone 3 Precinct Office (Phone: (404) 624-0674) but was told that I have to call back at 10PM tonight to talk to morning shift supervisor Sgt. Smith.

So I have to wait a minimum of 10 hours to find out if there’s a rapist on the loose in my neighborhood? Of course, it’s not like he’d rape anyone before 10 anyway.

I called the APD’s public affairs office as well. They said call Zone 3 because they don’t know. Why would I think that Public Affairs have any information to help me, a member of the public? How silly of me.

So I left a message with my City Council Member, Joyce Shepard. Her number is (404) 330-6053. I haven’t heard back yet.

If you live in Southwest Atlanta and want to help — Call those numbers yourself and ask what happened to the naked woman who ran through Capitol View last night screaming “Help Me.” We deserve to know if there’s a rapist on the loose attacking woman who are walking down the street.

    sooooo how do you know she was raped?

    they told you that much but had no other details?

    intriguing and btw – my dumbass would have opened the door and let her in …only to be found chopped up in pieces later. How many times do you see a nekkid white woman screaming help in the middle of the night in the hood?

    keep us POSTed…get it? POSTed? ha ha hee hee

    i didn’t know that she was raped. i considered it a strong possibility though because she was naked at 2:15 pounding on my door and screaming.
