  1. Yup, looks like a "black woman" to me. I guess they should just stick to "it was a bunch of teens" and other general descriptions especially when they can't tell a black Buick from a gray Toyota.

    Anyway, and unfortunately, there were these type of people lying up around Lakeview all the time in that general vicinity. Usually "mentally ill" or drugged out but still had the capacity to insult, harrass and instigate. Honestly, I wouldn't have flinched.

    1. Light-skinned humans' flesh turns dark and blue-ish when deprived of oxygen. Say, when they stop breathing and/or their heart is no longer operating. In the darkness of night, such a person might very well be misidentified.

  2. Oh, and she most certainly wouldn't have been in the north bound bus shelter at that corner......because the "transient youth" destroyed it years ago.
