The Gang members who were assaulted with a deadly weapons all knew each other, so it’s all good. Nothing to do here folks, just forget about it. As Murl used to tell us, in Eureka there are no gangs and certainly no retaliation. This is a ‘Crazy White Boy'(CWB) not some truly scary Black, Latino or Asian gang-banger, right? Surely suspending an attempted murder case with viable suspect information won’t have any ‘blowback’, because the 18th Street gang is known for forgiving and forgetting, not retaliation.
Acacia Raskin, 19, was waiting to cross the street to the Fourth Street courthouse entrance around 10:30 a.m. Thursday when a man who she said she has never seen before came up behind her, grabbed her in between her legs and groped her, while reportedly putting his head next to her face.
Broad daylight sexual assaults never happen in Downtown Eureka! Not that you ever heard about anyway. So what make this different? Oh ya, it happened in front of two members of law enforcement and a suspect (who was just released on OR) was arrested unlike the all the others that nobody ever hears about. On top of that, the victim contacted the local media (that’s why her name appears instead of remaining confidential). If she hadn’t contacted the media, this might have been another Eureka crime swept under the rug.
Well, Andy, time for another devotional prayer breakfast on the taxpayers dime, because that’s the only thing that’s going to help your “Don’t tell – Don’t ask – head in the sand” policing policy to work.
