      It looks more like Spre. He DID warn us!

    I think mentioning that the suspect is black is more important that his “black hooded jacket”-which unlike skin color can be removed. It is a bit disconcerting to see that PC has infiltrated the domain of effective law enforcement. Peace.

        That’s on the first of the month not every Friday. If that were the case our deficit would be an even bigger problem than it is already.

    ICrime doesn’t have any thing to do with skin color:It has more to do with the child back ground and the surrounding environment. I see 12 14 years kids who needs eduction themselve, having kids. What kind of education can they give to their kids?
