    I would have to agree with you, must be black or somali. If it was child molestation, now that would a white dude. Can’t be asian cause the vehicle used is not a honda or toyota.

    Elsewhere the race of the suspects is given; why it isn’t stated here is not worth
    bothering about. Haphazard journalistic standards based on arbitrary and capricious
    whims seems to be de rigeur….
