For 8 years we would be called all sorts of names and harassed if we did mention the color of the perp.


Someone put a thumbs down. They don’t think a suspect’s race should be mentioned in the description. LOL. To the person who did the thumb’s down: What if we just always say the perp is white? Would that be acceptable to you?
