Comments: Even when there's a surveillance photo the News Journal refuses to note hue

So which one is accurate and who did the describing? I mean, if the police described the man as "a black man in his mid thirties, between five and a half feet tall and five foot nine, around 155 pounds with a light beard" then TNJ got it WRONG.

Hey, you racist! Not all Irish have red hair! Don't forget about the Black Irish. Oh crap, did I say "black" Irish? Am I a racist now? But wait, I'm part Irish, so I can say that stuff. Yeah, me an' my Micks are gonna represent! Paddy Pride!

Sorry. All that to say I agree with you.

For quite a few years, I described myself as

Olive drab Green, shade 106.
Size Medium Short.
A 'Follow Me' patch and a Gold Bar.
And 9 1/2 Endicott Johnsons with an aftermarket Vibram Sole. Spit shined of course.
