2:30 AM is a sad time to be alone.

What's even sadder is that we continue to live in an age when women can't feel safe on streets after dark. Not only do they get assaulted, but they are then accused of 'asking for it'. I wonder whether she'll have to explain to anyone that the sexual assault was a 'legitimate' one, as, you know, distinct from the 'illegitimate' ones.

I hope the police are bringing this photo into all the downtown businesses, especially with cameras. Also, the gas stations, fast food or mini markets in town that may recognize the description and that hat if he is a regular. Barbershops in the area may also know him if he is getting that short haircut all the time (the Pleasanton Patch said that he had a "military" haircut).

Nice try politicizing this attack by a typical dodger fan, Winston.
This was an rape, regardless as to your designation of legitimacy.
Weenies like you make women very fearful.."
