Race? Now, I'm not one of those who demands to know the skin color of every alleged miscreant on the face of the earth, but when you're giving a sex, height, weight, and clothing description of an unknown perp, don't you think his race is an important factor? And how about a bank surveillance photo or two while you're at it?

I think newsday gets a piece of the action on these crimes, since they always go to the trouble of making the description useless.

I just posted the same under a different article. Its a joke, they never give race but ask for help. Maybe I live next door to the Bank and saw a Black dude running by, or a White dude.

I just dont understand why Newsday doesnt print a more detailed physical description (ie: race, build, facial hair, tatoos etc.).

This information may jog someones memory that may have been in the area. It may lead to an identification or arrest.

Unreal...

Why is Newsday like this?

ANOTHER bank robbery in that area, coming soon after the North Fork robbery & attempted robbery (by the same perp!), as well as the Sperry Credit Union job. What's going on in the Third Precinct these days?

Well you know they weren't white or their pictures would've been plastered all over the pages with the headline "WHITE MAN ROBS BANK"!

Why are you playing the race card.

Yeah, your right. Why didn't they print the address, phone number, cell number, pager, education level, clothes, etc.

"Nassau's Third Squad is investigating two back-to-back bank robberies that happened within an hour of one another Monday at branches less than three miles apart. "

Hrmm, 1st one at 10:25, second at 11:30.

That is NOT within an hour of each other.

More accurate Newsday reporting! The story says that the first robber hit the MINEOLA branch of Roslyn Savings Bank at 10:25 a.m., and then he "walked out of the Albertson bank branch. He was last seen on foot heading west on Jericho Turnpike, police said." Then, according to Newsday, a second robber hit the Bank of America branch in Albertson, and "he was last seen running north on Willis Avenue."

I guess the reporter isn't from this area, because when you leave that Roslyn Bank branch on Jericho Turnpike, you are in MINEOLA, not Albertson! Accuracy in media???

I see the police are really worth their salaries ... it's obvious the department is full of monkeys.

I'm not, and that's a stupid comment on your part. I want a more complete description of the perp. Standard descriptions of unknown perps include race, sex, age, height, weight, hair color and style, clothing, accents, tattoos, etc., anything distinctive and as detailed as one can get. You are mistaken if you are reading any unspoken insinuations into my post.

If the police are publishing a number for people to call that could help them, the least they could do is tell us the color of the robbers skin. Don't you think this may help in identification? Seems like you are making this about race. It is just basic, if you want to find someone, give as much information is available, unless the guy was wrapped up like a mummy, I believe the color of the skin should have been included.

It is way past time for banks to hire (non-geriatric) armed guards. Until they all do, the ones that do will be secure. Newsday should also investigate the kind of sentence gived to the robbers when caught, especially noting parole status and how many are out there after their sentences were reduced for 'good time'. End parole!

Or maybe ny could follow the genius cop in nj that told the banks to tell their customers 'no hats'! Since there seems to be MANY bank pix of the 'hat bandit' at work, I'd love to be there to hear what happens when they refuse to serve a Black man!!!

Any normal description should include the race. It has nothing to do with racism. It narrows down who the criminal is and enables citizens to report if they know anything.

Way to go again Newsday for blatantly leaving out important information. Too bad there are no other newspapers to compete with.

Make sure to click the link below and contact Newsday to let them know you are fed up.

A more comprehensive report on area bank robberies is needed. Two Merrick banks across from Chatterton Elementary School were robbed in May (both in the daytime - one resulted in a lockdown, the other happened after school around 4 pm)

These robbers are getting very brazen. It's only a matter of time before something goes wrong and there's a hostage situation and a casualty.

I am worried for all bank employees and customers. It's like they're sitting ducks.
