Ms. Towne obviously has something about her that draws people to her. Did she send a picture?
"minding my own business and noticing how happy folks sounded on their way to do whatever"
So beautiful in a way
Holy crap, it's Jeanne Towne? The blind woman who sings in the market -- she's been there for thirty years, I'll bet. She's a Seattle institution.
Now I REALLY want to kick this guy in the balls really hard. Fuck.
...AND the Sheriff's department stepped up apologized? Instead of grumbling about how hard their job is? It's all so... classy. And strange. Very strange and unfamiliar, but definitely classy
Exactly what Fnarf said @3. Good lord, that woman is a fixture in the Market.
It breaks my heart to think of someone deliberately tormenting her. What kind of fucking creep stalks a blind woman?
The same kind of creep that stalks anyone, just way more cowardly.
I'm counting my blessings.
Google points me to a 1992 letter to the editor from Ms. Towne regarding jerks who try to run her over (my words, not hers). There's also a 1990 article (and followup) about her house burning down.
I had no idea the papers had free archives going back that far; it's nice to see they're not trying to charge for access to old articles.
I'd take a couple hits to the face for an annual Metro pass...
The stalking is breathtakingly ghastly and shitty. Some crimes, I think half the punishment should be having somebody covertly videotaping you doing it, then having that tape shown to your mother.
(Then comes the kick in the balls. Then off to prison, for death by wambi.)
Hey, no language wieners have posted yet, complaining that she has no way of knowing if the security cam footage was "excellent"? It would be dickish to point that out.
GodDAMN, what kind of asshole stalks a blind woman?! It sounds like a motherfucking Haneke movie!
