Local Racial Un-profiling

It seems the local media is so afraid of charges of racial profiling and discrimination that it now resorts to removing all mention of race, along with other identifying descriptions, when reporting on a recent shooting involving a school bus filled with children. Anne Linehan of blogHOUSTON reports that, although Houston police provided the following description to the local media:
The students on the bus described the suspect as a black male, in his late teens or early 20s, with a "thick" build, wearing a red shirt with black pants.
...the only part of the description that made it to the paper or television news was the description of the suspect's clothing.

Says Ms Linehan,
So, there is someone on the loose who shot at a school bus filled with children, yet local media won't give the public the information provided by eyewitnesses that could help apprehend him.
And political correctness continues to run amok, to the detriment of society and our children's safety.

Oh you actually want to catch criminals?

It's the Liberals job to ensure that as many criminals walk the streets as possible.
