Attacked is an understatement – 2 women have been raped while another one was raped and murdered by the same man. It happened a few streets down my road, and I have noticed that an unvoluntary curfew has taken place in my mind when I walk back home late, i.e should I take a taxi rather than walk 10 mns? Is it too late to go to the off license? Etc.

It sucks serious ass. I’ll try to be there.
