Good Samaritan, 26, faces paralysis, pistol whipped and sexually assaulted by man she gave a lift
Daily Mail ^ | Jan 5, 2014 | Ashley Colman

Posted on 01/08/2014 11:35:08 AM PST by heartwood

A 26-year-old Florida woman may never walk again after her kind gesture to offer a stranger a ride to the hospital turned into a nightmare attack that has ruined her life. Tallahassee-resident Katie Schlinger told her traumatic story to MailOnline, revealing details about the night she offered to drive a stranger to the hospital before 'he physically and sexually attacked her'. Ms Schlinger says she fought back and escaped with her life, but two spinal surgeries later, she still can't use her right arm or walk on her own. And since she's uninsured, she already owes one hospital $250,000 and is about to be kicked out of a third. Survivor: 26-year-old Katie Schlinger survived a horrific attack late last month when she offered to drive a stranger to the hospital Survivor: 26-year-old Katie Schlinger survived a horrific attack late last month when she offered to drive a stranger to the hospital It all goes back to December 20 when Ms Schlinger was in Aiken, South Carolina, to support her brother as he underwent open heart surgery at Aiken Regional Medical Center.

She was smoking a cigarette in the car at the nearby Quality Inn around 4am when she was approached by 23-year-old Michael Antwon Fuller who asked her for a cigarette and the two started talking about their relatives in the hospital.

Fuller told her he was worried about his uncle at the hospital and wondered if she wouldn’t mind driving him up there so he could see him.

‘Yeah I’ll give you a ride if you promise not to hurt me,’ she joked, agreeing to drive him since the hospital was only four minutes away and Fuller was clean cut, well-spoken and well dressed. ‘Who could hurt that precious face?’ Ms Schlinger recalls him responding.

Why, yes, it is one of Obama's sons, and the victim a young white woman.

My pretty younger cousin lives in Aiken. I used to be horrified by my cousins' racism, and their policy of keeping pistols on the nightstand. Now I'm not.

Hmmm.....sounds like someone else I know that was described that way and he's a criminal too!

This sub-human mutant (God Bless you Bob Grant) should be made into her personal slave for life - work to pay her bills and support her until he dies. If not, execute him and recycle whatever chemicals can be retrieved from his body to defray the cost.

His color is irrelevant. He is a sub-human mutant.

A problem exists where if you own a truck you can’t let a hitchiker ride in the bed of the truck...because they have to be seatbelted.

So trucks can’t safely give hitchhikers rides.
Neither can anyone.

So the consequence is that hitchhiking is reduced...probably not a bad thing. Another consequence is that some good samartians have to take a chance every once in a great while to help someone out and give them a ride, instead of telling them to put their thumb out and hopefully get a ride in some ones truck.

One of the comments on the original site:

Another gullible white liberal learns a hard lesson.......

Not sure which is more tragic, the people in this story or me and the dozens of others who had this as their first thought and gave the comment a thumbs up.

I don’t think I’d give that a thumbs up.

But it sure is tragic that these people are willing to put their lives on the line in order to believe the lies that are necessary to sustain their worldview.

You see, liberals’ want to think of themselves as good, moral people, which is the foundational lie of all the other lies they have to maintain in order to sustain this basic lie.

4am, visiting hours don’t begin until God knows when...

Seriously? Nothing struck her as odd about this?

I am very sorry this happened to her, but damn lady.

Women, when some man you love says, “Please be careful and don’t put yourself in bad situations!”, this is exactly what he means. Don’t despise him for trying to manager your life or tell you how to live. Thank him for caring that you continue to live.

Use your head!

An unfortunate story, and extremely poor judgement on her part.

If she had refused to give him a ride, she would have been an “evil racist engaging in profiling.” Of course, better that than what happened.

I don’t buy the hospital visit at 4 AM story. Pure speculation, she wanted to score, and this guy agreed to take her to the drop house. Doesn’t excuse the thug, but nothing else adds up.

One of the unspoken crimes of society is the etremely high cost of medical care. Ever gone to an ER room and made to for several hours while they charge $400 an hour or more for the room while they are all chatting and hamming it up in the center section? After my wife went for food posoning abd received a $7,000 + bill for a few hours we don’t use ERs anymore.

Close...

she didn’t want to THINK OF HERSELF AS AN “evil racist engaging in profiling”.

So, in order to prove to herself that she’s not an “evil racist engaging in profiling”,

she did something extremely stupid and dangerous and ended up paying for it in the worst way.

RE> Smoking in her car at 4AM?

The article says she was at a hotel near the hospital out of state from where she lived. When I am away at a hotel and can’t sleep, I will go down to outside the lobby or near my car to smoke. Smoking in hotel rooms is fairly rare and expensive these days. And you will often see others doing the same, at all hours. Striking up a chat with a fellow smoker at any hour at a hotel isn’t unusual. Driving them anywhere at 4 AM is the part that I don’t understand. The hotel usually has transportation and my first suggestion to such a request would be, I am certain the hotel service desk can have a taxi here in no time, good luck, good bye. What I find most disturbing is this jerk first bumms a smoke, a chat, and a ride from her and then bashes in her head and rapes her.

I think he got her to drop her defenses a little at a time.

“Man, I got a non-smoking room too.” (He’s so law-abiding he won’t smoke where the sign says not to.)

“You visiting family here?”

“Yeah? My uncle’s in the hospital too.”

“I want to be there when he wakes up. Nurses come by five o’clock, taking blood pressure and stuff.”

Backing up her story is that she did have someone in the hospital, and the wrecked car was found at the hospital.

Clean-cut he may be, but he sure has mean eyes in that picture.

This is the kind of person I would marry and I married. Kind hearted.

We’re all geniuses after the fact and the unkind are always right in every fear they hide their blessings under.

Evil exists people. That can’t stop the good that God wants us to do.

Yup. She probably never would have let a white guy in the car.

Beyond that, for my money this story stinks to high heaven. She did at least three things that no girl I have ever known or that I have ever encountered late at night would ever even consider doing.

After my wife went for food posoning abd received a $7,000 + bill for a few hours we don’t use ERs anymore.

That's a great lesson, well maybe you should visit a clinic or called your doctor if it was "just a little food poisoning". Do you know what you're paying for in the ER? It isn't the people "yucking it up in the center section ".

what was your chief complaint when the triage nurse asked you what you were in the ER for? Vomiting, diarrhea, belly pain, fever? If you don't like the bill write a letter to the hospital and billing department and see if you can negotiate or decrease the bill. Go to the billing department and set up payments or dispute what you feel is wrong. Remember that you aren't billed by what they find but on what they looked for and the things that were used to look for the answer.

I started reading the story and without hesitation knew it had to be one of Holder’s people and a son of odumbo who did the deed. I feel very bad for the young lady but she did a really STUPID thing by giving that creep the opportunity to do her harm. Will they ever learn?

As a large male, I don’t have the same target issues a woman of any race or age does.

A few years back I gave a ride to two black men trudging uphill in a snow storm. The older of the two was amazed that I stopped as they were deperate.

As he got in the car, he opened his overcoat and.....
.
.
.
...he had an infant, his daughter, who he had been stranded with by a dead vehicle over two miles back. We all were blessed that night.

She has no common sense at all. 1) smokes 2) no health insurance 3) alone in a parking lot a 4:00 AM 4) gives a ride to a male, and a black one at that.
