Lamar Dekari Stevens, 36, of San Jose, injured himself while running from police after breaking into a home in Menlo Park at 4:50 a.m. and sexually assaulting and robbing a male resident, police say. He was already on parole for a previous robbery.

http://www.mercurynews.com/2017/08/11/burglary-sexual-assault-suspect-in-hospital-after-30-foot-fall/

San Jose used to be known as a large, boring, relatively low-crime city. Lately it's increasingly known for street gangs and criminals.

LOL @ this "accidental fall"

"A suspect in a residential burglary and sexual assault is at Stanford Hospital recovering from injuries he received in a 30-foot fall onto a roadway while fleeing police, Menlo Park police said."

A suspect in the case, 21-year-old San Jose resident Muniunmee Hendrix, was arrested Thursday in the Central Valley city of Merced.

San Jose used to be known as a large, boring, relatively low-crime city. Lately it's increasingly known for street gangs and criminals.

Two young men from the East Bay were arrested after they allegedly tried to rob a Craigslist seller at or near the Google campus in Mountain View, in the heart of Silicon Valley. As they were trying to speed off in their car they hit a light pole, then they tried to run off but were apparently detained by Google security guards.

An 18-year old male and three minors, one of them female, were arrested for robbing a woman on the street in the East Bay. It was the minor female who allegedly pulled a gun on the victim.

Two hispanic males were arrested in connection with a purse snatching and an attempted purse snatching at Stanford Shopping Center. In the attempted incident two women walking in the parking lot were approached simultaneously by a Lexus containing three hispanic males, with an open passenger door, and a male on foot who tried to grab one of the women's purse, who fell to the ground and had minor injuries. When the other woman screamed the assailant gave up and left in the car. A witness noted the plate number, leading to an address in San Francisco. In both incidents the assailant was wearing a hoodie with the hood pulled tight around the face.

A black male and a Pacific islander rear-ended a 7-11 employee's car when she was going to the bank to make a deposit and seized the cash from her car. It looks like the 7-11 she worked at is in East Palo Alto but the robbery occurred in Palo Alto.

http://www.mercurynews.com/2017/08/30/robbers-target-7-eleven-employee-taking-money-to-bank-police-say/

Police were quoted as calling the robbery "unusual." There was an incident last year when a couple driving on the Pacific Coast Highway on the Peninsula were being tailgated by another car, and when they pulled over to let them pass the other car stopped behind them and a BM came out with a gun and robbed them. Then there was the incident when a woman driver noticed someone seemed to be following her, and when she unwisely went home a BM came out of the other car, broke her passenger window and seized her camera. The police were quoted as stating they were unsure if she had taken a picture of something the BM didn't want her to take a picture of, or they just wanted the camera.

A San Jose man named Cuong Cao “Calvin” Dang (sounds Vietnamese) was sentenced to the federal pen for operating a business that received stolen property from a network of rogue Cisco Systems employees and sold it. After he was indicted for those crimes he then blackmailed one of his co-conspirators for money, which his wife spent on gambling. He and his wife were indicted and pled guilty to those crimes as well. Dang subsequently said his motivation to make money blinded him to the wrongness of his conduct, and that he was "feeling very sad." There are seven other co-defendants in the case, who seem to be a mix of Vietnamese and Chinese.

This article doesn't provide much detail, but it seems that black males have been seizing people's laptop computers while they were sitting in Starbucks locations in Alameda, in the East Bay, and elsewhere in the Bay Area. Again the article isn't very descriptive, but presumably these individuals are walking into a Starbucks location, picking up laptops from in front of their owners, and running off. The article indicates that one location has been hit multiple times.

"A group of 12 suspects assaulted and robbed a 17-year-old in Dolores Park Wednesday afternoon, police reported. While the teenager was in the park between 2pm and 6:35pm, he was approached by the group. The suspects assaulted him, and then took his belt, cellphone, wallet, and money. The 12 suspects then fled the scene."

An 18-yo named Michael Velavalencia and three minors were arrested in connection with a crime spree in San Jose that included residential burglaries, including one in which the homeowner was shot (non-fatally), auto thefts, and a carjacking. This kind of crime spree is more characteristic of black males, but there are hispanic criminals as well.

Three Chinese guys hailing from SoCal were arrested, and two more are wanted, in connection with a series of crimes connected to a "statewide brothel ring." Details are sketchy, but it appears that Chinese organized crime/underworld is involved. The makeshift brothels were apparently being operated in UMC residential communities.

Smashed! Palo Alto area a hot spot for auto burglars

Affluence, tourists, business travelers draw criminals from around the Bay Area

I've commented on this before, but the side windows of cars should be laminated, like the windshield. It's much too easy for someone passing by to break the window and reach in and grab whatever. A lot of glass shops in SF are supported by the daily stream of car break-ins.

"A 21-year-old San Jose man has been arrested in connection with at least seven chain-snatch robberies targeting older women of East Indian and Asian descent in the South Bay, and detectives said they believe there may be additional victims."

Article says he was arrested in 2014 in connection with a similar series of crimes, but the article doesn't say what was the disposition of that case. In the mugshot he has a slightly worried look rather than the indifferent/thuggish look that they usually have; not sure what to make of that.

Students have been targeted for robberies near UC Berkeley in recent weeks by a "robbery crew." Apparently the MO is for two people to approach the student on the street and strike up a conversation, then rob or attempt to rob them. The race of the perps is unspecified, presumably because they don't want people to get the impression that all black males are criminals and are best avoided on the street.

http://www.sfgate.com/crime/article/5-Berkeley-robbery-attempts-linked-to-organized-12364465.php

According to the article, police are advising members of the public to travel in groups and to attempt to stay in well-lighted, heavily populated areas. That's their stock advice in response to street crime, though it doesn't seem very practical. How often do you have someone handy who is going to the same place as you at the same time?

A 16-yo was arrested in Oakland in connection with the seizing of a laptop that a customer was using in a coffee shop in San Leandro, after a witness observed the license plate of the getaway vehicle. Three other minors were also in the vehicle. "The theft of laptops from coffee shop patrons is becoming a popular crime all over the Bay Area," said a San Leandro Police spokesman. "Thankfully, an observant witness was able to obtain the suspect vehicle information and provide that to the victim. Without this information, this crime may have gone unsolved." You think? The spokesman advised people who use their laptops in public to "use caution," to "be aware of their surroundings," and to consider using a computer cable lock to secure their devices to a fixed object. He didn't advise people to be on the lookout for black males, presumably for the sake of politeness and diplomacy. As is usually the case, the parents of the young miscreant are not mentioned.

"OAKLAND — A mob of teenagers who brazenly snatch cellphones from BART riders’ hands has struck again, BART police said."

A 14-year-old boy was arrested on suspicion of theft from a person and "was cited to his parent." A number of other teens were detained and released. The case will be forwarded to the Alameda County District Attorney’s Office for possible charges.

http://www.mercurynews.com/2017/11/25/group-of-teens-strikes-again-in-bart-cellphone-snatching-thefts/

The Bay Area Rapid Transit Authority has some tips to prevent riders from having their cellphone snatched:

-protect your phone, especially near the door and while waiting on the platform

-put it away or "at least secure it" when approaching stops

-be aware of your surroundings "at all times"

They didn't say to be on the lookout for black teen males, presumably for the sake of politeness/diplomacy.

11 minors arrested in connection with a "San Jose crime spree" consisting of armed robberies, car jackings, and burglaries. The miscreants are said to be from San Jose and smalltown Gilroy to the south (Garlic capital of the world). This one is a bit of a puzzle. San Jose is not particularly known for black crime unless the offenders are from East Palo Alto or some place in the East Bay like Oakland or Richmond. On the other hand this type of wanton juvenile delinquency isn't the hallmark of hispanics like it is for blacks, let alone whites, Asians or south Asians.

A number of hispanic men in their 20s were arrested in connection with the burglary of a home in upscale Millbrae on the Peninsula, south of SF. The homeowner was home and heard a door being kicked in on a weekday afternoon, and was able to retreat to somewhere where she wasn't seen and called police. When the cops arrived two fled on foot, and a third used their car which was backed in the driveway and hit two cop cars and a civilian's car before fleeing on foot. Two more were arrested as accessories. Most are from EPA, one from Redwood City, and are believed to be gang affiliated. The articles don't say if they rang the doorbell to see if the home was vacant or just assumed it because the driveway was empty.

Two young men arrested, third sought in connection with theft of laptop at St. Mary's College in Moraga, a small suburban community east of Oakland. Allegedly two of the three went to a classroom occupied by a priest and one "held the door open" while the other "distracted" the priest, perhaps by asking him about accepting Christ as his savior or some other pretext, then picked up the laptop and they both ran to a waiting Jeep driven by the third guy. Reportedly officers from four cities and the CHP joined in searching for the suspects after the Jeep was subsequently spotted and two fled on foot. The two who were caught were on probation for previous, unspecified offenses. The laptop was recovered and returned to its rightful owner.

Palo Alto area a hot spot for auto burglars

http://www.santacruzsentinel.com/general-news/20171210/palo-alto-area-a-hot-spot-for-auto-burglars

"The groups of marauders are almost all coming from outside Santa Clara County, law enforcement sources said. Gang members brag about it on social media, McKeown said. In 2015, her office indicted 21 members of an Oakland-based gang for a string of more than 50 auto burglaries."

"'They are coming here and doing auto burglaries and then they go back out of county to fence the property, and they do this every single day,' McKeown said."

"Added Benitez, 'If anybody thinks that Palo Alto or Menlo Park or Mountain View is a safe community, and they can leave their stuff in their car, it is absolutely 100 percent wrong. This happens every single night.'"

epidemic of auto theft and carjacking by minors in Milwaukee

https://www.tmj4.com/longform/stollies-milwaukees-stolen-car-epidemic

"What can we do as a city, as parents, as school teachers and try to discourage this?" Now that there is a first-rate question, a primo eccellente question. When they find out the answer I'll be very interested to know.

"Carjacking isn't cool, car theft isn't cool, and you're killing yourselves and other people," the group's president, Kalen R. Haywood said. Couldn't have said it better myself.

"Sometimes you've got to talk to your kids, like really, really talk to them," Turner said. "A lot of parents say, 'I'm giving up on you, just go do what you're wanna do,' but no, don't give up on them, even if they're doing something they're not supposed to do, never give up on your kids." Maybe this is the answer?? Not giving up on your kids and really, really talking to them?

Two hispanics arrested in SF after leading police on a high speed chase, in a stolen car, from Marin County where they were caught burgling a car. (Marin County is north of SF, on the other end of the Golden Gate Bridge.) "Several other cars" were damaged during the chase, though no injuries were reported. The (alleged) driver had warrants and a lengthy criminal record including seven auto theft convictions. Both were arrested after a similar chase in 2015, the driver pled guilty and served some time, the passenger was dismissed from that case.

Seven young adult and five minor members of a San Jose robbery/theft crew have been arrested. The suspects pictured are mainly hispanic with one black and one Arab. Many of the suspects were on probation for prior offenses. The mother of one of the suspects was also arrested for child endangerment and allowing the crew to use her home as a base of operations.

San Jose used to be known as a large, bland, relatively safe city, but crime has increased in recent years.

California's leaders have decided they can't afford to keep building more prisons, presumably part of the reason why so many suspects are being arrested who are currently on probation/parole for prior offenses. Clearly they're not "learning" something from their experiences. Like committing crime is bad and wrong. To the contrary, when criminals get together they reportedly like to brag about the crimes they've committed.

Two of four suspects arrested for assaulting a woman and seizing her purse at a mall in the East Bay. The woman reported she was attacked from behind, had a drink thrown at her and was beaten, before they took her purse. The two apprehended were minors and were taken to juvenile hall. The purse was not recovered and was presumably in the care of the two who got away. As is usually the case the parents of the youthful offenders are not mentioned.

http://www.sfgate.com/news/bayarea/article/Officers-Arrest-Two-Suspects-Who-Stole-Woman-s-12531764.php

There seems to be more crime in the East Bay. Perhaps not coincidentally, the East Bay is where much of the black population resides.

50-60 year old white guy sought in connection with robbery of tanning salon at box cutter-point in Walnut Creek, East Bay.

https://patch.com/california/walnutcreek/walnut-creek-robbery-suspect-sought-video

http://sanfrancisco.cbslocal.com/2018/01/25/walnut-creek-tanning-salon-owner-seeks-armed-man-who-robbed-his-business/

The business owner says he looks prob. like a drug addict or transient. The owner happens to be a disgraced former sheriff's deputy in Contra Costa County who served time for his part in a "dirty DUI" scheme where men who were getting a divorce were plied with drinks by attractive female plants and then arrested when they tried to drive their car. Also arrested in connection with the scheme were a few other cops, the PI who hired the women and coordinated with the cops, the lawyer who hired the PI, and the head of the state drug task force in that county, who was colluding with the PI to resell seized drugs.

Alleged large-scale car burglary operation broken up

https://www.mercurynews.com/2018/01/31/thousands-of-stolen-laptops-recovered-in-massive-bay-area-car-burglary-scheme

Some (nine) of the people believed to be responsible for an epidemic of car break-ins on the Peninsula, the South Bay (i.e. Silicon Valley and San Jose), and the East Bay were arrested. The alleged operation was an unholy alliance (my wording) between

Vietnamese exporters shipping stolen laptops, tablets and smartphones to Vietnam out of the Port of Oakland

Hispanic fences/brokers receiving the stolen items and giving them to the exporters

Oakland street gang actually doing the car burglaries

A multicultural criminal enterprise, just like the movies! 900 devices were recovered from an 18-wheeler on the way to the Port of Oakland, 300 from two Vietnamese individuals who were flying out of San Francisco Int'l with "18 pieces of luggage," and 700 from one of the Vietnamese suspect's home. Allegedly shipments were going out monthly from the Port of Oakland. The arrested suspects have Vietnamese and Spanish names, no mention of any of the gang members though.

You don't see Asian names in crime articles very often, but when you do they're often Vietnamese. This is presumably related to the fact that Vietnam is a poor country.

Undercover cops have been staking out cafes in Berkeley after a "string" of laptop seizures and will continue to do so for the "foreseeable future." "Three adults and three juveniles" were arrested after "four people" exited a vehicle, entered a cafe, and "seconds later" "two men" grabbed two laptops and "all four sprinted" back to the "getaway car." Nearby patrol officers were notified and stopped the car; the two laptops were recovered as well as "additional stolen property." "Five of the six people arrested were already on probation, police said."

https://www.mercurynews.com/2018/02/19/six-arrested-after-laptops-stolen-from-berkeley-cafe/

In the meantime, people who go to cafes in Berkeley are "urged" to "be aware of their surroundings," "lock their devices to the table," back up their work, and purchase a tracking device for their laptop.

A cafe in Berkeley has been hit three times in three weeks.

https://www.berkeleyside.com/2018/02/02/4-laptops-taken-strada-robbery-theft-berkeley/

The Berkeley police advise cafe patrons to follow these advices:

-Be aware of surroundings [keep one eye on your laptop, one eye on your coffee or whatever, and one eye on your "surroundings"]

-Do not leave valuables unattended (especially electronic devices)

-Consider using a lock to secure electronic devices to the table

-Back up work to an external hard drive (not kept with the computer) or to the cloud

-Purchase tracking software, and remember to activate it, to aid in the location of a stolen device

-If you see something suspicious, say something immediately and call 911 [No guidance is given on what qualifies as suspicious, but if you happen to see four black males exit a vehicle and stride toward you with a purposeful look in their eyes, that's prob. not a good sign.]

Five minor males nabbed for a couple of "laptop grabs" in downtown Berkeley.

http://www.berkeleyside.com/2018/01/26/5-teens-arrested-berkeley-starbucks-laptop-grab/

A Berkeley police lieutenant noted that patrons "inside cafes" are "particularly vulnerable" because they are not "keeping tabs on their surroundings." According to this lieutenant, "the idea is not to be paranoid," but rather to "stay aware of their surroundings, particularly while standing in line, sitting in cafes, getting in or out of a vehicle or unlocking a bike." I think if you combine this advice with the bullet points listed above, that should just about cover it. And remember, there is no need to be "paranoid." They're not out to get you!

Reportedly "three young men" approached four individuals sitting outside a cafe in Berkeley, picked up an unspecified number of laptops, and "ran toward a late-model four-door sedan that drove away."

Among the helpful tips are to "keep devices out of view if using them in public" (?), and "report suspicious activity." And be sure to take care with your surroundings, that's very important.

The black crime problem in the Bay area has the appearance of futility. Some of the black males there have let themselves go from civilized society. They don't care about going to jail and they don't care what people think of them. They're probably incorrigible until they get into their 50s or 60s. And it costs money to keep the bad guys locked up, money which is apparently in short supply.

1.6% of auto breakins in SF result in an arrest. This article has a pic of someone caught in the act by a SF Chronicle reporter and photographer who happened to be on Lombard Street ("crookedest street in the world") where car breakins happen routinely in broad daylight. This particular individual was later caught, and was on parole for a previous robbery conviction.

Theoretically this can't continue forever. Something has to change. As I've noted before, side windows made of laminated glass will prevent these breakins, but it remains to be seen when glass manufacturers will make these available.

Several individuals from out of state were arrested for invading three homes in Sonoma County, north of SF, apparently seeking marijuana they could take back out of state and sell. MJ is now legal in Cali but not in most other states, creating an arbitrage opportunity for enterprising young men who would rather lead a life of crime and punishment than work for a living.

https://www.sfchronicle.com/crime/article/petaluma-novato-armed-robbery-marijuana-santa-rosa-12750212.php

Apparently none of the homes was, in fact, involved in marijuana cultivation. How the suspects chose those homes to invade is unclear. No one was killed in these incidents, though a homeowner was killed last month, also in Sonoma County, in one of two incidents also involving out of state perpetrators.

Last year police were called in the East Bay by a citizen who observed a woman peering into cars in a shopping center parking lot, while being followed by a Jeep SUV. The police attempted to stop the vehicle but it fled at speeds exceeding 100 mph, and then crashed in the yard of a Montessori school. A deceased adult female was found inside the wreckage, identified as Maria Gaglione, and a second, surviving female was in the yard of the school, identified as Amy Fiasconaro. The survivor claimed that she was the passenger and the deceased female was the driver, but DNA testing of blood on the driver's airbag indicated that Fiasconaro was in fact the driver. She had meth and heroin in her system, and a criminal record, and the Jeep turned out to be stolen. The decedent's father mainly blamed the police. It was his contention that his daughter didn't know the vehicle was stolen. By this he presumably meant to imply that she was an innocent bystander who was in the wrong place at the wrong time, but no explanation was given for what they were doing casing vehicles in the shopping center parking lot, or whether she was unaware that her friend was a drug addict and criminal. The driver is being prosecuted this year for homicide, among other charges.

Here's something new called "jugging." I don't know where that name comes from. It's when some guys stake out a bank and watch for someone leaving the bank with cash.

Black Transient Woman throws Chihuahua seven stories to its death

https://www.sacbee.com/news/state/california/article215271300.html

At first it looked like an accident.

A 4-year-old Chihuahua named Dunky was lying in the street dead when its owner returned to the garage where he had parked during lunch on Feb. 10 in San Francisco, according to police. The man first assumed his dog had somehow sneaked out of the car and then had fallen from the seventh floor of the parking garage to its death.

But then the man went up to the seventh floor and saw his Mercedes: The vehicle had been broken into, leaving shattered glass and blood everywhere, police said. Someone had also rifled through the vehicle’s glove compartment.

From the car, a trail of blood led to a ledge — and that’s where the burglar had tossed Dunky off the structure and onto the street below, prosecutors said. Police said they instantly knew who the suspect was after watching surveillance footage.

The next morning, Wakeen Best, a 35-year-old homeless woman, was arrested in connection with the dog’s death, according to police.

A jury found Best guilty on felony animal cruelty, vandalism and burglary charges on Friday, according to San Francisco District Attorney George Gascón. The trial lasted three weeks, but jury deliberations only took a day.

“This defendant showed no remorse and is responsible for the death of a little, defenseless animal,” Gascón said in a statement, adding that the verdict is “a small step toward bringing justice for Dunky.”

Best targeted the man’s Mercedes because it was “the fanciest car she saw” on the seventh story of the garage that afternoon, according to prosecutors.

But after shattering the windows, Dunky surprised Best and began barking — drawing attention to the crime in progress. That’s when Best killed Dunky, and disposed of his body by dropping him over the ledge, prosecutors said.

Video and audio from the parking garage captured the crime as it happened, according to police. The perpetrator can be heard on the video screaming profanity at Dunky for yapping, though the video doesn’t show the attacker, the San Francisco Chronicle reports.

“Shut yo ass up,” the culprit yells twice at the dog in the recording, according to the Chronicle.

Meanwhile, the car’s alarm is screeching in the background.

“You a b---h,” the culprit tells the dog in the recording, according to the Chronicle.

Best’s public defender said it wasn’t her client who killed the dog or who was heard in that recording, according to the Chronicle. But the public defender did admit that another recording caught Best at the crime scene.

“We know that she knows how to do a standard smash and grab,” Deputy Public Defender Alexandra Pray said, conceding that her client has stolen from cars before, according to the San Francisco Examiner. “She is just a regular ol’ auto burglar. She’s not someone who murders animals. She’s not someone who hurts animals.”

Prosecutors wouldn’t say if Dunky died in the car on the seventh floor or during the fall, the San Francisco Examiner reports.

But prosecutors do know one thing: “Dunky didn’t have to die,” Assistant District Attorney Asha Jameson said in a statement.

Best will be sentenced on August 17, according to prosecutors.

A "crew" of black women may be responsible for obtaining, without paying, thousands of dollars of yoga pants from Lululemon stores in California, including the Bay Area. They walk into the store, load up their shopping bags, and walk out. Customers and employees watch in amazement, presumably.

The Apple Store grab-and-go robberies continue unabated. They haven't figured out what to do about it. The stores have (unarmed) security guards now, but they don't try to prevent the robberies, they just witness and call 911. The display models reportedly have kill switches, but the robbers still find them profitable somehow. I wonder if they can't do the GPS tracking so the cops can follow them?

Install remote activated incineration device on each display item

This will eventually become so widespread that ultimately you will need to make an appointment at one of these stores to view a product and make a selection. They won’t have devices out on tables anymore. This could be a win win for GC in a lot of ways. Makes the store more efficient in terms of sales.

Article said no one has been hurt, which is not true. An elderly woman got in the way of the fleeing felons and was shoved to the ground and hospitalized.

That would make a bad situation worse. I agree "something" should be done. If the folks at Apple HQ have decided what that "something" should be, they haven't announced it yet. Apple employees, including the (unarmed) security guards, are instructed not to intervene but just witness and call 911. I still think they should consider paying tribute to the local black hoodie-wearing male community. Like when the Vikings reached a deal with the French king to settle on the north coast of France and discontinue their plundering ways. Reportedly the people of Normandy are taller and blonder than the average French to this day.

An 18-yo and a 17-yo were arrested for pulling up in their car next to a woman at a bus stop in Berkeley at ~5pm and snatching her cellphone from her hands. She tried to retrieve her phone and was dragged some distance by the car, but apparently was not injured.

Berkeley police said more than half of street robberies in Berkeley involved victims who were holding an electronic device in their hand or were alone at the time of the robberies. The exact conclusion to draw from this is unclear. Presumably you should not hold an electronic device outdoors in Berkeley, or you should not be alone outdoors in Berkeley, or both.

Trial for a freeway driveby murder, involving gangs, rap, and interpersonal conflicts. It's like an inane soap opera. This is the world (some) black males have created for themselves.

A black and a hispanic are being sought in connection with an attempted purse snatching at the Stanford Shopping Center. A woman was sitting outside a McDonalds at 4pm when they grabbed her purse and dragged her when she tried to hold onto it. Two witnesses chased the perps and recovered her purse when they dropped it while fleeing. Article mentions there've been "other recent cases" without going into detail.

lol - repeated purse snatchings at the nicest mall in the area in one of the most expensive and idyllic cities in the Bay Area. Nothing to see here.

4 hispanics arrested in connection with a home burglary and theft of a Tesla in Sunnyvale ("Heart of Silicon Valley"). They seem kind of nonchalant in their mug shots. All of them were on probation or parole for a prior offense.

Theoretically repeat offenders should be incarcerated longer since they're incorrigible, but that costs money.

An Indian guy was arrested in connection with one of those phone scams. This seems to be an Indian speciality, along with groping sleeping women on planes. Has the admission standard for Indians gone down lately?

A San Jose State University student was punched and robbed of his cellphone by a group of juveniles riding electric scooters Wednesday, authorities said.

https://www.mercurynews.com/2018/11/14/suspects-on-electric-scooters-rob-sjsu-student-of-cellphone/

A couple of the misbehaving youths were arrested. One who got away is described as a "black male juvenile, about 6 feet tall. He was last seen wearing a black top and red skinny jeans." There seems no rhyme or reason why they sometimes include the suspect's race and somtimes not.

When you see a group of black juveniles it's prob. best to take a detour and not engage in a "verbal altercation" with them. As Kramer would say it's not the size but the ferocity.

Sounds about right. It would be better for everyone if people desisted from committing crimes: better for themselves, and better for other people/society.
