A Letter to the Editor in the April 7, 2009, Tomahawk Leader:
About the tragedy of young Rochelle Anderson … the crux of the whole matter is that she should never have been in a job like that in the first place. These gasoline station stores are magnets for young guys on drugs who need dope money. She was a “sitting duck.” If a twenty-five-year-old man had been in that job; he would have had a fighting good chance to defend himself.
Would that this tragedy, sad as it is, be a wake-up call to future employees: do not put a lone woman into an after dark job. Some jobs are good for women and some jobs are good for men. This job was meant for a man.
