Serial Killers and Cleveland's Image

Now that ANOTHER serial killer has been apprehended in Cleveland–well, actually, East Cleveland–the city is laser-focused on what’s most important about this story: whether women feel safe in the city’s poorest neighborhoods the city’s image!

Will the fact that poor women are being preyed on and murdered/imprisoned/raped by calculating lunatics hurt tourism? Channel 5 investigates!


My friend Christine had this to say about the story:

Night or day… it doesn’t matter. In the late ’90s/early 2000s I used to wait for the bus in the same area that Ariel Castro was prowling, and dozens of men would ask me if I needed a ride. He might’ve been one of them, for all I know–he’s pretty ordinary-looking. I learned a lesson from all that: there are people who assume you’re a throwaway person if you’re hanging around a certain area, no matter what time of day.

I wonder where the hell would they get that idea?
