So, am I to believe that the witnesses were able to determine the suspect's height age, and hair color, but couldn't tell us if the suspect was white, black, asian, or Latino? Really? Come on, people, the race in the description is important. Noone is going to accuse your publication of racism for reporting the facts.

Agree with Alamo Dad. It is extremely frustrating to see 'papers' like the Weekly not divulge critical pieces of information tied to the description of a potential predator. Another example of "PC" gone too far. You're not going to offend the readers if you say the person was black, white, hispanic, asian, etc.... C'mon Danville Weekly - grow a spine.

Thank you, amom. Color me racist, but I assumed this was the case. Why wouldn't Danville Express want to put out every bit of information available-is it more important to you be PC than it is to protect children?

Good thought, Danville Mom. I'd worry that in order to get a useful photo of the guy, you're going to have to get really, really close to the guy. Might be better tactic to use the cell phone to call the police, get them enroute, then sit back and see if you can follow him safely to a vehicle. The police will be able to do more with a license plate number than the typical cellphone pic.

Maybe he's a man who loves to photograph children. What a suspicious lot of people there are in this neighborhood! How could he be hurting the children by photographing them? In today's climate, a man is looked at with horror if he takes a little girl upon his knee and hugs and kisses her, even she's his own daughter. A pity.
