    Let me guess.... you are not including the race of the suspect because it is not pertinent to the search for him. It wouldn't help in identifying him. But the fact that he has short hair and is wearing jeans is. Political correctness is sooooooo STUPID!!! You are not including it because of who will be cry racism about it. SO STUPID!!! Baykha!!

      Maybe they did not release it because it's none of your business or it is an active investigation and keeping the details quiet are more important than the general publics curiosity to know everything. This sight is a great place to express your view but remember entitlement is not a prerequisite to the public.

    I would think that the suspects color would be a helpful part of the description or would that offend some of the viewers.

      Really unless someone knows or was there and saw it this man will be running around free unless he gets cocky and brags to people.
