Michelle Malkin is skeptical
about the woman's claims.
So am I. She's got the black eye and the facial marking, but the story doesn't add up. I tossed out some random thoughts at Transterrestiral Musings:
I have a hard time that she would keep her head still enough for the perp to carve that "B" on her face.
Note this detail:
"She told police the man then sat on her chest, pinning both her hands down with his knees and used what she believed was a dull knife with a roughly 5-inch blade to carve the B"
(Link via a skeptical Michelle Malkin.)
That means that her head was right side up when the mugger carved it (if that's what happened).
Maybe it's an underlined M instead of a B?
Actually, it looks like two thirds of the EIB logo
Look at her pic in the Malkin post. The skin isn't even broken. What kind of a mugger carries a knife that dull? I've seen butter knives sharper than that.
If it weren't for the letter carving allegation, this would be dog-bites-man. Of course muggers are offended by the party that's tougher on law enforcement.
