  1. The description put out to all CPD officers working downtown at the time of the car jacking was: “All officers, information, possible robbery with a gun from the area of Hitt Street parking garage…possible suspect description: black male, age 20 to 30 wearing sweatshirt and jeans, skinny; and a black female.” When asking for the public’s help finding a suspect, it always helps if the police give identifying characteristics that reduce the suspect down to about 3% of the population. Just happens that this 3% of the population is responsible for about 50% of the gun crime in this country, but who needs facts when we can just take guns away from law abiding people.
