    What about hair color & length, height, build, skin color, and manner of speech (foreign or colloquial accent of some kind)? This article tells the public next to nothing, other than there was a robbery.

      They are playing it safe. They don't want to be called biased in case they write down "black" or "hispanic".

      It's the urban yoot. Small businesses need to keep a Katrina Street Sweeper handy for the urban yoot.
