It has been policy since the 1970s to not announce the race of suspects. So glad to see this reappear on this site. Reinstituting this policy would go a long way in stopping people from crying racism all the time.

That was my thought. Is Becton going to actually charge any of these dirt bags?

Becton won’t charge them you moron. They are in custody on FEDERAL charges … if they have warrants for their arrests, they have already been charged.

They have been charged with Federal Crimes — out of Becton’s jurisdiction. Besides, my friend, when someone has a warrant for their arrest, they have already been charged with a crime.

Toned down enuf for you Burk ?

When someone has a warrant for their arrest, they have already been charged with the crime that is shown on the arrest warrant.

Just so we all understand this. The mayor sabotages the police. Blocks information from being released from the public then all of a sudden has held press conferences to announce arrests with the police? So this big announcement about APD doing good work or for him to take credit for things he has nothing to do with?

It has nothing to do with racism…. one has only need to look at the crime reports for Antioch and stories being reported here by ECT, and the demographics of the arrests are self-explanatory.
