  • Well. She goes a ways to break the stereotypical image of a knife-welding robber. Good for helping people (me) think we (I) know what ‘they’ look like!

  • #MeToo
    Fortunately, there is nothing about the term ‘They’ that is illegal or inherently blasphemous. It fundamentally means people other than us, and last time I checked, most people love to classify plants, animals, vehicles etc..
    somehow, in regards to people, we should all simultaneously celebrate diversity, while acting as if ‘They’ is a insult.
    Diversity means difference, which means in some sense.. other.

    • Not exactly clear on the point(s) you tried to make, but I can clarify this….
      The term “they” was referring to our perceptions of ‘the others’, people who LOOK desperate, sick, crazy, drug addicted, foreign (non-white), etc. She does not. And the comfort that we gain by trying to distance ourselves from societal problems (us vs them) is shattered when we see one of ‘us’ (the ‘good guys/gals’) who are accused.

    • My points exactly, Thank you.
      “We”are merely other people’s ”they’s”.
      And There is nothing wrong with ethnocentrism, it’s the definition and prerequisite of cultural diversity in many ways
      Acting as if you can see through another cultures lense is the real comedy.
      She looks like a crook to me, but that’s cause she’s human, not because she’s probably from European lines

    What the Fu©#! She looks like genuine good people. Like any person I would like to have over or meet at a school function… Sad, just sad. Hope she didn’t do it. Sad!!!

      What’s a ‘FFS’ SourjSweet…? I oviously don’t live in your crappy(no comma needed here) insensitive world…

      Sorry Kym I couldn’t help myself, delete it if you want. Still truely don’t know what a FFS or why the term was used negativly pushed in my direction… I thought my prior message was positive. FFS is lessthan whatever I was saying.

      • I believe it’s an acronym for the phrase For Fu*ks Sake

      • It takes all kinds

        FFS stands for: “For Fucks Sake”
        At least that’s they way I have understood that acronym.

      • Muddy Black Dodge

        FFS ‘For Fuc#$ Sake’. Still don’t think I live in SourjBitters world, opps, ‘SourjSweet’ world. Our lives are what we make them SourjBitter, hope you can learn to defend yourself from your world. Some times when you/ I /we/ “humans” think we know how life is, we need to step out of our SourjBitter lives and look onward. Travel SourjBitter(outside the Redwood curtain) it will expand your mind, your world view, your view of your world, your view of how others view their world. (And much more) Good luck SJB, SourJBitter. Sweet I just made a new acronym… going to use it all the time as if everyone knows what I’m talking about…

        • You’re the one judging “good” and “bad” by superficial appearances. What changes would this lady have to make to her appearance to make her look “bad?”

          • Meth sores. Tattoos symbolizing violence and murder. Lack of personal hygiene.
            Some things are signals that there may be problems and would be foolish to ignore. That does not mean that a person is convicted by their appearance- just that caution is reasonable.

            • Most people say you cannot judge a book by its cover, Although I found that the covers of most books have an explanation of what the book is about inside.

            • I guess I know lot of of good people that look and smell like bad people.

          • It’s cute how you pretend the answer isn’t completely obvious.

      • Don’t take it personally, he’s a loser who sprays homeless people with water for fun and brags about it like everyone else think it’s funny FFS!

      • Kym doesn’t need your approval to delete your post, ffs.

    • Normally white collar crime though.

    • Not according to ‘Fox & Friends’!

  • She works at Ace in Fortuna. She is the garden gal.

  • She should have been trying to apply for jobs not trying to be someone she really is not. Sometimes when you don’t have any money or a job you should not try to rob someone and make your life worse you should try to get a job or go to school it is wrong to try and rob or rip off people. I hope this person manages to turn there life around.

      Or move out of Ferndale. If you have to rob to pay your rent, move elsewhere.

      But seriously, you almost have to live a life of crime to pay 💰 rent in Ferndale!

  • How much money did she get?

    • Ran out of black market weed cash. Times be desperate. Just wait another 6-9 months around here people, the “green ghetto “ is just getting into the swing of things…..

      • It’s always about weed with you. Methinks the EMT doth protest too much.

        When you can’t sell the weed and you have bills to pay.

        I give it till Christmas and then I predict a significant upswing in robberies and burglaries.

  • But she says she’s innocent and women are incapable of lying to the extent that we do not need due process. #belive women

    • I agree with your sarcastic comment. I get frustrated by that attitude, too. But say in Bill Cosby’s situation, is someone accused of attempted rape incapable of lying? Shouldn’t there have been more of an investigation much earlier? For me #BelieveWomen is more of a push to give the accuser equal footing with the accused.

  • Kym. I like your last sentence. Thank you!!

  • What business is it? Maybe she wanted to legitimately return something and they didnt honor it. Sometimes peoe get pissed off when they feel they have been ripped off and there is no other avenue. Small claims court can be a real inconvenience.

    • First off that is not a valid excuse for robbing someone at knifepoint at 1030pm.

      I can not imagine that are many businesses that are open that late in Fortuna on that block. Maybe the Shell Station, Pepper’s, or Safeway. It is the block that the Safeway Mall is on. So I am guessing it is one of those businesses.

  • Does she have a cleaning company?

  • Wow people think all is dandy by looks of a picture, this lady is a known meth head. Hello, don’t judge a book by its cover.
