The suspect is described as being "mid- to late-30s, 6'2-190 lbs"



Umm, is there anything else you want to tell the public about the suspect, or should we just be on the lookout for any tall mid-30's male?

Seriously, what's with this PC nonsense of not including a suspect's race in BOLO warnings to the public?


quote:

A woman visiting New York City was raped in an alleyway near a nightclub in midtown early Sunday morning, police said.

The 20-year-old woman from Australia left the club, Lavo, and got into a cab, but fought with the driver and exited the taxi after a short distance, police said.

She had just exited the taxi on East 58th Street at about 3:30 a.m. when she was grabbed from behind.

She was then dragged into an alleyway, where she was sexually assaulted, police said.

According to a law enforcement official, the woman then got into a second cab and texted a friend that she had just been raped. Police were called and met her at another location where she was headed on the west side.

Police have released a sketch of the suspect, who's described as being in his mid- to late-30s, about 6 feet 2 inches tall and weighing 190 pounds.

I always just assume when they omit race, that omission means black.

Is it possible that she didn't know the race?

That does happen.

There's a police artist sketch of the perp in the link I provided. The perp is clearly black. I'm wondering why that information, which would be helpful, was omitted from the BOLO alert released to the public.

That seems to be the trend.

Is it bad that my first thought was what is a black guy doing on the upper east side?

Yea I think it is more "offensive" for them not to list race when the perp is black.

It's like saying, "why waste ink stating the obvious?"

So, she noticed that he was 6-2 and 190 lbs, and had enough information to provide for a sketch to be made of the guy, but just didn't happen to notice if he was black, white, Asian, or Latino while he was raping her?

BR news does this as well.

Bank robbed. Suspect is 6'0".

From there you just have to get the code words to guess race.

"light skinned" "wearing a starter jacket"

Happens all the time with the news here in Houston. Skurred they'll get sued for saying a color. It's f'ing ridiculous.

The sketch was released....I think it speaks for itself regarding race...do they have to spell it out anymore to not be "PC" in your eyes?

I heard that on MSNBC they described the suspect as the suspect was a "6'0 tall, 180 lb, crazy cracker."

Yeah, they could spell it out completely and accurately which is the entire point to begin with.
