I bet it was a black guy who used a ton of foundation on his face to hide his identity, then put on the ski mask to really throw the cops off

Frankly, I'm offended the man put on a black mask. Why black? He should have been wearing purple!

Now, when I drove into town Sat, I was on the turnpike talking to my son. He asked where I was at. I said I was at Topeka. He said to watch out. He is in grade school. I did not have time to remind him that he had spent a lot of time there and had been just fine. We had other things we had to discuss that were more important but I could see his dad's prejudices were being firmly put in place. What I did see that needed to be done was to reassure him. I told him, don't worry, I'm driving right through.

You know I was thinking of all you snarkers as I said that and how wrong it was in my role as mother!

I saw a white male, light colored shirt and pants at Dillons. Was the suspect about 85 with a walker?

Maybe not if he jumped over the desk........

Breaking News: After further investigation, it has been determined that the suspect has most likely removed the black ski mask by now. Police are now searching for a white male without a black ski mask.

If you're an average white male, then you are a threat to the fine citizens of the people's republic of lawrence. All white males should report to the judicial center for further questioning on this matter.

Gotta be from Topeka.... Probably came to Lawrence for the driver check points that were on Friday evening. He was pissed because he wanted his check, and all he got was drivers license looked at. .

I thought the LJW does not describe suspects, or do we only describe them when they are white?
