Why are you reporting the alleged race of the alleged criminals? Are you intending to continue the sterotyping of African-Americans as criminals? Please stop doing this; in this case informing the public is trumpt by maintaining the excellent state of race relations established by our "historic" President. Don't give up on "Hope and Change."

It's about trying to locate a suspect, not making a statement about race and crime.

Ellie - I agree with you. If we're trying to identify a suspect, race is very important along with sex and any other identifiable characteristics. Thank you.
