So, in the description of the perpetrator, they include the color of his shirt, but not his face? That will make him easy to find. The dog is the innocent victim in this example of typical Detroiter behavior.

Presumably the shooter is black based on the neighborhood. Still, you are absolutely correct that the media frequently leaves out race in the description when this can be the most important clue. Somebody somewhere believes they will be in trouble for reporting the truth.
