Oakland Armed Robbery At Euclid And Van Buren Monday 8-12 At 12:41 PM

This was emailed to me today:

I wish the Oakland Police were more descriptive than " male Black, approximately 20-years-old, 5'11'', 160lbs." I mean what about hair? How was it cut? Did he have glasses?

Do we have a society so stupid that people can't give detailed descriptions?

Stay tuned.
