Is it safe to comment?

The Serial Leg shooter is still on the loose I see.☺

On a more serious but still humorist note:

2100 block of MLK at 5 a.m. when four "unidentified" men in a dark-colored Pontiac Sunfire attempted to rob her.

Now how do you get 4 White Cracker/Bubba's in a Sunfire?

MLK, 5 a.m.

Does Augusta Public Transit operate a bus route on MLK Blvd. at 5 in the morning?

Well, I'm standing on a corner on Martin Luther King Boulevard, what a fine sight to see. It's four unidentified men in a dark Pontiac Sunfire slowin' down to take a look at me...Come on, baby, don't say maybe... I gotta know if you're gonna shoot me today....
