You Make The Call!

Check out this story in today's Idaho Statesman:
The girl told police a man made her get into his car as she walked down Chinden Boulevard about 3:40 p.m. Monday.
She said he drove her to a business on the 4200 block of Chinden where he attacked her. Afterward, he told her to break into a nearby business. She was breaking the window to gain entry when witnesses called the police to report a break-in.
The girl described the man as being between 35 and 40, about 5 feet 5 inches tall, with short brown hair with a grayish tint, a red beard and bad teeth.
Now, I'm no policeman, but I'm betting I can guess what was going through their minds as they heard that story. Which do you think is most likely? That someone forced a girl into his car in the middle of the day on a major thoroughfare, assaulted her, then (somehow) "forced" her to break into a business while he stayed at a safe distance away? Or is it more likely that she got caught breaking into the business, and came up with this story of being abducted, abused, and mind-controlled by Danny Bonaduce on the spur of the moment?

I'm betting on the latter...

Joel,

Most everyone interested in this blog is aware of and agrees that there's an idiot who, all too often, posts off topic meaningless babble. He's considered "the troll".

Your readers and commenters seem to get really spun up by this troll.

Now what if there's someone out there, fairly adept at emulating the troll's babble (not difficult to do), who intentionally and just for fun makes stupid troll-like comments in this arena just to see if he can rile up your readers?

Two questions:

1. Would your readers consider this person to be a troll as well?

2. Submariners were taught how to not let people get to them. Trying to spin someone up and avoid getting spun up was daily fodder on the boats I served on. The troll obviously gets to your submariner readers. What's up with that?

Was the attack a sexual assault? I don't know where Chindon Blvd is, but I would say the police should take her to the nearest hospital and have them prepare a Sexual Assault Kit to send to their serving Crime Laboratory. With that proposition put to her she might stick to her story, or, who knows she may change her story.

Bubblehead,

Don't know where else to alert you to the death of Capt. Bladen Delany Clagggett, 91 years old.

He was skipper of USS Dace SS-247 which sank a Japanese cruiser in the run up to the battle of Leyte Gulf. Claggett and MCclintock, Skipper of USS Darter SS-227, both scored sinkings on the Japanese fleet headed for Leyte gulf. Darter went aground on Bombay sholls at full speed during the engagement. Claggett and Dace rescued the entire crew of Darter. Darter's crew as a unit was transferred to the new construction submarine USS Menhaden
SS-377 at Manitowoc WI.
Claggett received the Navy Cross for the engagement. Read more about their adventures on pages 749 - 758 of Clay Blair's silent victory. Stirring stuff for submariners during Memorial Day activities.

Keep a zero bubble...........

What the media never told you is that she was 250 pounds.

All I did was wag the bag of taco flavor doritos and she told me she'd do anything for them.

Rest in peace, CAPT Claggett. Thanks TMC for the info. If you are near a WWII veteran, please spend some time talking to him/her. They are leaving us at a rapid pace now. The rich history and incredible stories they have to tell should be shared with future generations.
