  • Wow, I walk past that area on my way to and from work, and the Marines at 9th & G are always so concerned that I’m heading in that direction. There are some housing projects nearby but I never thought it was particularly unsafe.

  • Glad to see this degenerate isn’t a minor. My friend in veterinary school just learned how to castrate goats – maybe the MPDC can call her to get some help with “fixing” this guy.

  • I saw the police in the back alley as I was taking my trash out that evening. They had the police tape up, by the storage for Fragers rental, which is on the corner of the alley cut through between 11th and 12th. I was waiting to see what was going on via the list serve, and I’m glad they caught the guy quickly.

  • Jeez, that is right by my place. Now I’m a little worried.

  • Hoping this fellow can get himself a “fixed address” in a local correctional facility for some time. Maybe he’ll even be there long enough to get reformed…

  • So glad they caught the guy, and thoughts are with the victim. This is my neighborhood, so while we have crime, this particular kind isn’t all that common. Scary.
