If they are so afraid to say black, just say TAN SKIN COLOR. It’s a feature to describe them not race.
How quick did 108 respond?

Impossible, 3 kids shooting guns indiscriminately in the streets! Well, even so, let’s not arrest them, we don’t want to be racist. Better to just let them do what they want.

“ All three are men are described as being in their early 20s and approximately 5 feet 10 inches tall, police said” All were racially ambiguous..We know by common sense and location the race of Perps. Police should still use race in order to narrow the pool of suspects.

Expect a lot more violent crime now that we have an anti-cop, criminal-mollycoddling mayor and “leadership” getting rid of bail, releasing prisoners at every opportunity, rolling out the red carpet for illegal aliens and practically cheering on rioters and looters.

The only time they are interested in law enforcement is when a small business tries to open up or when Jewish kids in Williamsburg want to use a playground, then out comes the iron fist.

The movie Escape fron New York may have been prophetic.
