    Howard related as he's been ripping off since 2007


    A large group of juveniles robbed a clothing store in Georgetown on Tuesday evening and stole $13,000 worth of items, according to D.C. police.

    The incident happened just before 6 p.m. at the Diesel store in the 3000 block of M Street NW. More than 20 people went into the store and grabbed several items off the racks, police said. They stole four leather jackets, costing about $800, and an additional $12,000 worth of merchandise.

    One person who worked at the store was said to have been pushed from behind by someone in the crowd. The employee was not injured, according to police. Police described the suspects only as juveniles.

    A spokesperson for Diesel did not respond to requests for comment.

    [Georgetown social network accused of racial profiling is suspended]


    A group of merchants earlier this year in Georgetown ended its use of a private messaging service that many retailers, residents and police officers had used to talk about people they thought were suspicious. There were concerns that the service was being used to racially profile people.

    Georgetown is one of the nation’s poshest shopping districts.

    Must have been the Jesuit law students from nearby Georgetown University. Frat boys can't hold their liquor and just love overpriced leather goods.

    "White cop kills black youth." They aren't afraid of posting that. Why?

    Why would it fear to stigmatize some racial groups and not cops? What's the paper's job? To inform or misinform?

    http://homicide.latimes.com/about/


    Why does the Homicide Report give the race/ethnicity of victims and suspects?
    ...

    Racial information was once routinely included in news stories about crimes, but in recent decades newspapers and other media outlets stopped mentioning racial or ethnic information because of public criticism. Racial information came to be perceived as irrelevant to the reporting of crimes because it could stigmatize some racial groups.

    Police described the suspects only as juveniles.

    That doesn't exactly help to narrow down the list. There isn't any other description they could provide to give some insight as to who did this? Were they dressed head to toe like ninjas?

    It's racist to call a criminal a criminal, you don't want to hurt their feelings.
