actually the more I think about it yelling just lipski in those circumstances seems more reasonable than just yelling Lizzie. especially since lipski is a powerful insult word. and why do you just yell the persons name-Lizzie- in a fight or argument? that to me makes no sense.

but of course Lipski is what the witness heard so obviously it couldn't be that.

good grief.
