"11:36 p.m. Three suspicious black males reported outside a Wetzel Drive business were gone upon police arrival."

Really? What's the point in identifying their color? It's never reported in the public record any other time. Business owner a little racist, maybe? Maybe a little paranoid? I thought we were beyond this crap? Shame on you Evening Sun for allowing it to go to print!

Go back to January, August. In a police matter you give as much identifying information as possible - including race - so if something has happened potential perps can be identified and charged. This is still a predominantly white area so something that doesn't fit the general demographics of the area should be reported on. In majority minority Baltimore, DC, Philadelphia, etc.,identifying a suspect as white is just as important since it is not a majority demographic of those areas. These people that were seen could have been outside the area, as well.

First off, I am actually white and European descent, and not a "nighttime freind (sic) of one." Second of all, the police blotter is merely to report police activity, not solve crimes. Otherwise, why aren't white people described in more detail, e.g., height, weight, hair color, etc.? We also have a sizable Hispanic population in Hanover, enough to devote a newspaper to; however, we never see suspicious people in front of businesses described as "brown," "Hispanic," etc. Thanks for playing though Adam and mike.
