Age, gender, height/weight, clothing and location and nature of crime(including graphic accounts of violence) are all reported regularly. But not always race/ethnicity, even when the police are asking the public for their assistance in apprehending the alleged criminal. I know there is a reluctance to report such things because the media don’t want to be charged with incitement and guilt by association. But I want all the relevant facts, including race and ethnicity.
