Can we get a description of the teens? Like color would be a great start. Or are you to afraid to publish that information?

DD can we take a pretty good guess?

This is an obvious fact, but knowing whether a criminal is white or black or purple or orange is not helpful to finding that person (who orange or purple might be more helpful). When we get detailed descriptions, we post them. Like the description of the man suspected of trying to abduct two teenagers. There was no description given from police for this incident. Any other racist comments will be deleted.

The racist comments should have been deleted!!!
