    “No description of the suspect is available”…..right….
    Should read ” No description will be released due to political directives”

    PC is more important than public safety

    Once again, there is extremely poor grammar in this article written by a so-called journalist (who should be an English expert, of course!) “The victim (one person) was retrieving items from THEIR???? back seat.” “A male suspect approached from behind and sexually assaulted THEM???” This is English 101 people: Subject-verb agreement which I learned in 6th grade, but apparently it’s not even taught in college anymore. Talk about dumbing down of American students – it is absolutely a damn shame.
