  1. Why would ANYONE go to a park at 12:30am?!?!?! Sorry this is so not right. Asking for a trouble. Common sense please. Use McDonalds WC if you have to. 🙁 sorry for the victim but honestly!

  2. So you are saying Dunwoody is not safe after 11pm?

    Was Dunwoody culpable for not locking the bathroom door if it is common sense that the bathroom is dangerous after 11pm?

    What are you saying ?

    Are you publicly blaming the victim? Is this a Dunwoody view or just a few ill conceived thoughts by 2 individuals?
