Rita Joe is naive and gullible. While in the shanty side (the slum side) of town and without any money to claim for her own, she accepts five dollars from two strange men, then is surprised to find they are undercover policeman when they arrest her for streetwalking. This is naive and gullible: this is lacking wisdom and wrongly willing to believe the best of every stranger met.
