To whoever decided to title the column “Body Identified as Missing Stripper”, if you could please show some respect to woman who was found dead and change it to her name, it’d be wonderful. Respect for the dead should not be undermined because she was a stripper. The title of this column is extremely disrespectful to her and her family suffering the loss of a mother and daughter. I’m positive there is more we should remember her for aside from being a stripper.
SR responds: Sandrarose.com does not consider ‘stripper’ to be a derogatory term. It was never Sandrarose.com’s intentions to cast aspersions on the dead or to offend the friends and family of Angela Rabotte. Most strippers are hard working women who earn an honest living to pay their bills and put food on the table. The post title was relevant because, according to Ms. Rabotte’s friends, on the night she went missing, Ms. Rabotte worked an after party in Atlanta in order to earn money to support herself and her child. It is my hope that the friends and family of Ms. Rabotte were not ashamed of Angela’s chosen profession.
In related news, Charles Outlaw (pictured right) was taken into custody earlier this week on outstanding warrants for parole violations. He is being held without bond in the Gwinnett County jail as a “person of interest” in the Angela Rabotte case. Outlaw has not been charged with Rabotte’s death.
