Mystery Mob!
I doubt many of you have ever heard of a woman named Lois Gibson. But it’s a name you should know, especially if you love all things mystery and crime. She became a bit of a legend after she drew the first sketch shown on America’s Most Wanted.
Oh, and she’s recorded in the Guinness Book of World Records as “The World’s Most Successful Forensic Artist,” helping solve over 1200 crimes. No big deal.
So, let’s don our berets and grab our easels, it’s time for forensic art.
First off, what is a forensic artist again? Forensic art is defined as: an artistic technique used for identification, apprehension or conviction purposes.
And a forensic artist, often referred to as a sketch artist, is someone who renders free-hand or computerized drawings, enhancements, and reconstructions.
Forensic artists work with law enforcement to identify criminal suspects and victims via facial composite sketches. They can even be called to a crime scene to create drawings, and scale diagrams and models of the scene. In general, forensic artists are called upon to:

They also need to maintain accurate case records, ensure that their artwork is properly handled and stored, and testify in court on occasion.
So now that we have that down, let’s get to Lois.
Lois’s (Clark Kent-less) superhero origin story Lois Gibson was 21 years old, living in Los Angeles in the early 1970s. Just like many in La La Land, she moved to the coast to act, dance and model (aka NOT to sketch). But life threw her a curveball, in the form of a break-in and assault.
"I got attacked by a guy who almost choked me to death for 25 minutes straight," said Gibson, in an interview in 2012. "When he finished, I was bleeding down my throat and my eyes."
"Like nine out of 10 girls, I was too traumatized and wanted justice -- but I couldn't get it," she said.
But justice did find her assaulter, almost a year later. And what’s more, completely by accident, she witnessed it. She saw police violently handcuffing a man she recognized as her rapist.
"I saw the arrest," she said. "I know what it is to see justice...It changes your life."
Gibson wanted to help others find that same justice. So she left L.A. to get a degree in forensic art from the University of Texas at Austin.
Drawing Conclusions But it took more than the degree to nail down her craft. So she spent her time drawing…
Apparently, Lois still had to prove to law enforcement that she could draw a person based only on an eyewitness account. So, she practiced, of course.
A friend of hers would walk into a gas station, look at an attendant, and then return to Lois. Using just her friend’s verbal description, she would draw a sketch. And well, eventually, she became really damn good.
Catchin’ bad guys The Houston Police Department decided to give her a try, and the results were astounding.
Her work helped solve 1266 crimes between 1989 and 2012.
She did it all, too. Forensic sketching. Facial reconstruction. Age progression. Whatever was needed.
I mean, LOOK at these side-by-sides. It’s nuts that someone can create sketches so close to the mark from just verbal description. Seriously, wild.
Though retired from police work now, she’s passing the torch to the next generation of sketchers. Since 1998, she’s taught at Northwestern University’s Center for Public Safety.

As always,
Stay ‘spicious

2021.12.05 14:03 DistressedOpossum Dangerous discord server

Transitions owned by Lady Dreya has become a dangerous Discord server. On here I’m just a random user but on Discord I was upper staff on Transitions for a couple years, actually since the beginning I’ve been on the staff team.
Transitions started as a hopeful server for trans folks to get along in, and that started to go downhill the last few months.
I have always respected Lady Dreya but recently I have lost it for her, why? Lady Dreya has a history of questionable moderation decisions. She has been known to invite friends as staff, which is fine, until they are toxic, rude, and destructive to those around them. (I will also note that she never asked the other staff if we felt comfortable with the new staff members, she just added them.)
Recently, in the past couple of days, Dreya has invited user @Yuna#0001 A known and confirmed person of questionable actions and behavior. This is my one and only encounter with Yuna.
Yuna has been rumored (according to herself) to be a Pedophile. When further questioned she confirmed that as an adult she has been dating a 17 year old. After I, a minor, expressed my discomfort with this information, herself and Dreya began to defend these actions by saying “When I was 16 I dated a 30yo” and “My son dated a 26 year old when he was 16, nothing much I could do about it”. Dreya went on to defend her son’s partner by saying “I told him it might not be a good idea because it could ruin her rep”. Really? You’re worried about the adult’s reputation over your own son’s safety and mental health?
Quite frankly these statements disgusted myself and multiple other staff who have since then left the server in protest.
I am writing this post as a warning to those, especially minors, who may encounter this server. Dreya has been openly stating that she thinks it’s OK to talk about NSFW with, around, and involving minors. I am very disturbed and distressed that I have been around such a disturbed individual for so long. I left the staff team and server for my own safety.
Protect yourselves, and Dreya, please think about what you are doing and how you are putting the children in your server at risk right now.
