MaudlinMutantMollusk: What about hats?

Suspect is definitely hatless.

Easy fix: run the NYPD through Fark's filter.

"Suspect is a successful and attractive African-American in a blue windbreaker."

Years back (dunno if they're still like this), one of the news stations in Roanoke, Virginia, was just like this.  They would NOT give the skin color of any suspect, no matter how urgent the report was.

One time, back in 2000 or so, there was a guy who got into some big argument with his woman.  Shot her, walked out, shot at / wounded a couple neighbors, stole a random car, and drove down the street popping off random shots.  Police are looking for him, stressing how dangerous he was, he was armed, he was shooting at random people, etc etc.

News report gave:
His name
What he was wearing
That he had a shaved head
His home address
What high school he went to

EVERY damn thing but the color of his skin.

Puts me in mind of an Amber Alert that gave the names and ages of the child and adult but skipped race.
