Bond was set at $40,000 for a 32-year-old Joliet man accused of sexually assaulting a woman after luring her into his vehicle with the promise of a newspaper.

“She said that she successfully exited the vehicle on her fourth attempt after picking up a set of keys dropped on the floorboard.”

I’ve never been in a car that you need a key to get out of.

What kind of person male or female is lured into a vehicle with a newspaper? Especially since only one in 50 people actually cares to read one. Ass wipe must have been the reason.

Whatever happened to the good old days, when candy was used to lure victims into vans?

I guess this is another casualty in the war on tasty treats.

Anyone carrying one of those has criminal intent written all over them. (imho)

All the propaganda unfit for print or readership. But, when newspapers are banned, only criminals will have newspapers. One best not talk to the mayor. There maybe is too many pages which need banning (similar to soft drinks).

Second post of yours in 2 weeks using the word "whack" about a woman.
Are you trying to be funny again, rubbing peoples noses in it again or just trying to start up trouble again?
Just asking.

Because the woman didn’t know where she was, police had to use her cell phone’s GPS settings to triangulate her location, he said.
Hmmmmmmm…I wonder what exactly happened there…

Sorry. It had to do with the wrapping of fish. I almost posted it.

One of the things I enjoy about FR is the irreverent humor, but I realized I knew nothing about this situation or this woman, and...well, I didn’t like the way it sounded after I thought of it.

He traded the girl for a piece of paper.

Maybe the girl was such an online freak she never saw a newspaper before!

Who knows?

It seems like you are trying to start trouble....

Just asking.

...in a passive aggressive manner.

Just asking a question that wasn't answered.
Found it a rather odd statement and the use of the word *whack* made it even odder considering what happened.
Just asking for clarification.

Hope that doesn't offend your finely tuned sensibilities because I didn't make the statement, just asked about its' purpose and meaning.
Wouldn't want to misinterpret now would we?

No. He asked her if she wanted to play “Whack a Mole”. She was wondering when the mole would pop up!

Well I guess she found out the hard way.

Quite all right. You are correct about FR... a lot of irreverent or sarcastic humor. It’s rarely intended in a demeaning way, and a little jocularity helps keep us sane.
