Spanish-Language Radio Station Slams Police for Describing Suspect as 'Hispanic'

I can't believe this. If the suspect is Hispanic, then why not say it and look for a Hispanic person who fits the description?

All this PC in the world is really getting out of hand.

I wanted to include this tid-bit...

Description: The suspect is described as Hispanic, 28 to 40 years old, short with a muscular build, dark hair and hazel or brown eyes.

No can't put Hispanic, don't want to upset anyone.

Description: The suspect is described as 28 to 40 years old, short with a muscular build, dark hair and hazel or brown eyes.

No can't discriminate an age group...

Description: The suspect is described as short with a muscular build, dark hair and hazel or brown eyes.

No, darn that Randy Newman, can we use "vertically challenged"?.. No

etc. etc...

Politically correct description: The suspect is described as a suspect.

yeah that works....GO get'em

We are getting closer and closer to this description

a quick look at the Google search for that Phoenix AM, radio station

turns up the 'appearance' that KNUV is a pro-active, en Espanol,
community activist radio station.....
and from my perspective thestation is obligated to create a 'stink',

no matter how ludicrous the claim of profiling-stereotyping-demeaning ethnic slurs by the plice and authorities...........

maybe the person will confine his attacks to the barrio areas near south mountain...where he seems to have a twisted support .

i don't know- -- would 'Latino' be as derogatory ?
