.Hero & Zero: Car Help & Alleged Rape

Hero: Neither wind nor rain deterred Kirk from helping a woman in distress. Madeleine was stuck in the parking lot of United Markets in San Rafael with a dead car battery and without her cell phone. As she weighed her options, a man pulled into the parking space next to hers. Madeleine explained her situation to the stranger, who introduced himself as Kirk, and asked to use his phone to call AAA. He obliged and they stood in the pelting rain while she made the call. When she hung up, she suggested that he go inside to do his shopping, but he insisted that he would stay until AAA phoned back with the towing info. Thanks, Kirk, for turning Madeleine’s nasty day into a nice one.

Zero: Whether or not Izell Lewis of San Rafael committed the crimes of which he is accused, we’re convicting him of being a huge loser. While in Marin County Superior Court last week, Lewis, 26, proclaimed that he’s not guilty of rape because, “I’m a good-looking guy,” and the alleged victim “is 300 pounds, no exaggeration.” Well, Lewis, you’re not all that. There’s also the question of your judgment after you called your judge a racist in open court and you decided to represent yourself for the purported rape last July at Corte Madera Town Center. Don’t forget your new charges stemming from allegedly masturbating in front of a female Uber driver last month in San Rafael. Good luck, Good-Lookin’.
