News The Zapper Always Zaps Twice!

Brace yourself…More “just in” on the Denny Way Zapper!
Behold the following missive, culled by a Slog commentor known only as “Maty Yeswad” from a Myspace.com bulletin originally posted by noted homosexuals and progenitors of The Bus Stop (the popular once-and-future Capitol Hill gay bar, not the place where street people crap) Rodney and Gary:
“I am all too cavalier about walking home by myself. Please take this seriously, I’d hate to see anyone get hurt.
Gary and I were walking home at 2:30 AM on Saturday (late Friday) on 13th between Olive and Denny when a man jumped out from behind bushes and attempted to shoot some type of weapon at us. It clicked twice and I saw a silhouette of what looked like a gun but Gary said he saw two lights on the gun and must have been a tazer. Nothing happened, he told us not to run and we ran a block away and called the police.
We (surprisingly) hadn’t had much to drink but still couldn’t make a clear identification because it was so dark. BE CAREFUL. I’m 6’4”, 225 pounds and don’t look like I have any money at all. The Hill just isn’t as safe as it used to be.
When the police came they told us to take 12th or other well lit streets home which might be good advice to everyone. It makes me really sad it has come to this. I’ve never seen so much crime for such a prolonged period in this neighborhood.”
Yes, the Mad Zapper is real. He’s out there. Beware!
