I would have expected the sketches to be a part of the story in order to help the police find the culprits. Any reason they are not included or is there a link to the sketches I'm not seeing.

It seems the Tribune has a policy of withholding the race of suspects. I noticed this when I was out of town on business and read detailed descriptions of suspects -- something the Trib would never do.

What's the intent of the policy?

Why does the tribune produce web articles that are obviously visually oriented and then not publish the visuals.

WHERE ARE THE SKETCHES?

Rck, the Tribune dosen't want to inflame the public against blacks who commit about 80% of the violent crime in the Chicago area.(the rest is committed by Hispanics) That is the intent of the policy by the liberals who run things at the paper. It was not always so; trhe Tribune annually reported crime by municipality and by the race of the offender; obviously the Jacksons and Sharptons of the world got to the Tribune and that report was discontinued. Maybe Jackson even got part of the action like he did on the Budweiser deal- remember- he was going to lead a black boycott of the company and suddenly his Sons were given the Budweiser distributor ship for Chicago - end of boycott. This is just a variation of that theme. See it's not good for you to know too much about who committs crime because if you did you might begin to question the ban on things like racial profiling and other shibboleths of the liberal world.

The failure to post the race, estimated height, weight, color of hair is a Chicago policy. They know that the vast majority of the crimes are committed by blacks, and they don't want the public to know. This is similar to the city not reporting the crime numbers to the FBI, so they are not included in the list of the most violent cities in America. The facts are what they are, and any city thats has a high concentration of blacks is violent. I wish it was different, but it is a truth.

The issue is not a "Chicago" policy. The Sun-Times reported that the suspects were black in its first article that evening. It also provided a description of their clothing. Such descriptions, though general in nature, can at least help police in having citizen eyes available to be on the lookout. Since robbers often follow the same M.O., the descriptions also could be an alert to other restaurant owners as to the types of persons the police are seeking.
