well the description is retarded a "male" that is half the population was he black, white, Asian, latino? what the hell is wrong with the cops, they must not want to really find these criminals, it is like pulling teeth to find out what the race of the people who commit crimes are now a day especially if it was a black person! But describing the perpetrator as a male is not going to help the crime get solved...

George, I was thinking the same thing! Who are these folks writing these stories? Journalism is obviously not their area of expertise. Double Dipped in Dumb.

What was he wearing? Did the store video camera get his picture? What kind of car did he get into? Another example of very poor follow up on a string of robberies in our area the last year. .....including the vandalized cars, robberies at Staple's Corner, the new starbucks at Waugh Chapel, and many others.
