the problem with police these days is, they assume all people of this description are ALWAYS ''guilty'' as accused by someone. its not always true. people these days are having their lives ruined by fantasy images in peoples minds who carry weapons of authority. time to get active an turn off the violence against everyone...

Sounds like the cops did a good job. It will be left to the courts to decide guilt.

I have never understood why women agree to take walks with complete strangers.

Way too many robberies and other crimes in PA recently. Has our town (and have our citizens) become easy marks for criminals? It hasn't always been this way.

What are you talking about? You think the police just pluck people off the streets because of their race?? Remember, its the victims who give the description....

I don't understand why woman walk with strangers. If grown woman do that, what can we expect from teenagers.
