Mystery 'Man' Sought in Chicago Murders

A brutal mass murder on the south side of Chicago on Saturday provides yet more evidence of Reuters mindless political correctness. Here is the article by my good friends at Reuters:

Five women killed in Chicago-area store shooting

TINLEY PARK, Illinois (Reuters) - Five women were shot and killed inside a clothing store at a suburban Chicago shopping center on Saturday in what police said appeared to be a botched robbery.

Police were searching for a lone gunman spotted outside the store by a witness, but said they had not identified him.

Awful crime, right? You'd like to see the murderer caught ASAP, right? Might be helpful to have an accurate description in the paper to help catch this crud, right?

Here's the description published by Reuters:

The suspect had fled and they issued an alert for a man wearing black jeans, a black waist-length winter coat and a black knit cap, police said.

So you know for sure that the suspect is a man. That's it.

For comparison, I now offer the corresponding description in the article carried by CNN, not exactly a right wing bastion of law and order itself:

Nurse, social worker among five slain in store

A witness who saw the gunman leave the front of the store described him as a black man, about 5 feet, 9 inches tall and weighing between 230 and 260 pounds, Tinley Park Police Sgt. T.J. Grady told CNN on Sunday. He was wearing a waist-length black winter coat, a black cap and dark jeans.
Notice much difference? Gee, I wonder why Reuters editors ran a generic description that could fit every man alive?

Reuters, documenting their stupidity and political agenda, every day.
