She is probably a drug addict crack whore trying to fund her drug habit by stealing from rich, white Issaquah folk. She is lucky she didn't break into a house in Selleck or Kanasket or Carbonado, she may have been shot dead. Those rich, white Issaquah folks are most likely liberal and anti-gun and robbers know this.
