I thought the guy was tall, slender and black??? Hmmmmmmmmmmmm!


He the story. The suspect is the tall, slender, black male wearing a blue shirt and green hat....


I guess two out three is not too bad but that guy is not slender unless you are a big person!


Having another episode of guilt are ya? Surveillance cameras always make the person look a little bigger than they are.


The camera adds 30-40lbs :-)


Cross check his picture with the welfare rolls.


Well, since most people in my hood are white and on the welfare, I know he doesn't live by me.


kate, lol


Ahh, livin' the lap of luxury in the trailer park. LOL.


Almost as good as living next to a junkyard! Right?


You would know better than I, living in Sandusky and all. Only cows and horses out here where I live.


There are actually alot more caucasians on welfare.
Try stay on topic in hopes of stopping this guy.

Aside from the fact that your reply is irrelevant to the comment to which you replied (since he never said the guy was on welfare because he's Black), the statistics you linked actually claim that there are still slightly more Black people on welfare than White people. So, not only are you a liar but, you seem to be one of those people who pull the race card pretty randomly.
By the way, I dunno how much faith I would put in the source of those statistics (whether it is the D.o.C. or a typo by whoever typed it into that website). It says 4,300,000 Americans are on Welfare, but claims that this is only 4.1% of Americans. How would 4,300,000 be 4.1% of 315.7 million (our population count according to when 315.7 (million) x .041 = 12.9 (million)?

The person you are replying to is not pulling a race card. Considering that people who pull robberies are usually in need of money, checking the robber's picture against a database of welfare recipients may not a bad idea at all.
One has to wonder if it may even more likely be a person who makes just enough money to disqualify them from welfare : P


I can"t remember reading any crimes being solved by Perkins police.Maybe the Sheriff Dept.should take over the Investigation.


If he was on welfare, he wouldn't need to rob anyone. And I don't think they have one of those facial recognition doohickeys around here. You're thinking of Las Vegas Crime Lab.


Santa shops at pat catan?


you thought your grandma made those ugly sweaters? heck no. it was elves.


I can't tell by these photos, but it appears as though he is wearing work boots and the shirt is possibly a uniform with a name on it?? Possible factory or auto garage type??


Oh, and the hat looks camo or flowers. I know welders wear those flower ones.


16 camera's and thats the best picture we have to work with? I hope this case gets sewn up quickly. Goodwill might be next


He should just enjoy those couple of dollars he got away with, cause he know his idiot self is heading to the joint (FIRST CLASS!) nice tarp bedding on pure man made rock, ahh comfy!
