    That’s a very stupid comment. Criminals tend to be caught when good descriptions and picutures are provided to the general public. Since they have the picstures and know the race, there is no problem giving this information to the public. If you have issues with this, then it’s you who are the racist. The issue is not race its crime.

    It is always these type of people that commit these crimes. They are too dumb and lazy to get real jobs.

    The Good Samaritan has spoken.
