Lawrence Police have a suspect in custody in connection with a Tuesday evening automobile theft, according to information from emergency dispatchers.

Police stopped a stolen 1995 Toyota Tercel in the 2700 block of West 24th Terrace around 11 p.m. The male suspect fled on foot and was later located by police near Holcomb Park.

An officer on scene reported that the suspect had been listening to the police pursuit on a radio. Police said that they would take the suspect in for an interview and compare the suspect to video surveillance obtained from Checkers Grocery Store, 2300 La., where the car was reported stolen around 11 p.m. on Tuesday.

Shaun, you do know it's Holcom Park, don't you? Not "Holcomb" Park. Proofread your work, young man.

All this stupid whining about race and nobody has mentioned the stupidity of stealing a '95 Tercel?

from here on I will only be referred to (in the regard of race) as a Western European American. And I never stoled my cousins ford escort neither.

thanks for the update Shaun.
there certainly is a lot of crime concentrated in just a few blocks over there.

At the time, the suspect was at large. There was nothing wrong with describing them. If they are white, they are white; if they are black, they are black, etc.

--well said. if suspectis at large, whatever info the pd feels it can release should be put out by th paper, not just to help with locating him/her/it, but for people's safety.

Describing the suspect as male is sexist!

They should not mention ANY race unless they are asking the public to help them identify the suspect, and then they should list race age range and physical statistics.

JM- you are so right. I had no idea how bad it was until I started listening to my scanner. Cops did a great job tonight, and the stolen car was recovered, with the keys! Yay!

Anyone can read about this in the paper.

Real Americans would grab their 44 Magnums and rush to the scene to help the police find the alleged car thief.

The question you have to ask yourself is, "Am I a real American?"

Berg, I think it's still permissible to say "white" when referring to someone's race.
just you better not mention the other politically incorrect racial identities.


officers are working hard on catching this dude.

Oh but BG, we can't use race in the description, gets the editors panties in a wad.
