Signs Of The Time, Part 90

Ever notice how detailed descriptions of suspects in a crime have disappeared to a large extent from the news over the years?

And often the suspect descriptions that are provided are incredibly vague to the extent of being a complete joke.

“Two males aged between 30 to 60 are suspects in the crime…”

Seeing that’s been the case, it was refreshing (and somewhat shocking) to spot the following this Monday morning on the Chicago Tribune website. From an article entitled “Police warn residents, businesses of robberies on Northwest, West sides”:

All three suspects are black male teenagers who are between 15 and 17 years old. All three were 5-foot-6 and weighed about 150 pounds. They all had black hair.

One suspect was in a black-hooded sweatshirt, another suspect wore a gray-hooded sweatshirt, and the third suspect had a black-hooded sweatshirt with red strings…

In two of the robberies, a suspect is a black man who is between 40 and 45 years old, police said. The man is between 5-foot9 and 6-foot-2. He has short black hair with a birthmark or an impairment on his face. He was wearing a black coat.

In one of the incidents, a suspect is described as a black man who is between 22 and 23 years old. He is between 5-foot-6 an 5-foot-7. He also had black hair and was wearing a black coat…

A suspect is black man who is between 18 and 20 years old. The man had red dreadlocks…

One suspect is a black man who is between 19 and 28 years old and is between 5-foot-8 and 6 feet tall, police said. Another suspect is a black man who is between 38 and 43 years old. He is between 5-foot-9 and 6 feet tall. He weighs between 190 and 210 pounds and has a medium complexion, police said…

Could this be the start of some “new” trend in the news media? Or will the PC Storm Troopers clamp down on such “graphic” suspect descriptions being made available for public consumption?

I suspect it will be the latter, unfortunately.
