    Male Blacks appx 6’2″. That narrows it down nicely. Hopefully they’ll run into a Bodega owner who’s armed and ready the next time.

    Might it be a very long hot summer if oil prices stay above $100 with limited job growth?? We aren’t in the economic boom of the 1990’s or 2000’s and things can quickly revert back to the conditions in the late 1980’s – 1990’s

    So much for B/ack History Month.

  4. Jeanie Miller says:

    This is a horrible example of minorities committing crimes. Obama has got to be ashambe that these individuals decided a live of crime rather than getting a job or helping the less fortunate.

    Police described the 2 suspects as MaleBlacks.
