  1. Confused why you had to mention the race of one suspect and not the other? Specially and probably subconsciously felt the need to mention the other suspect was ‘black’ what about Yuri? What was his race, where was he from? This is unfortunate that reporters jump the gun to mention a black suspect but in the same article fail to mention other races which is continuously perpetuating the stereotype against black men in America. If you read article from other countries such as London, Amsterdam, you would never see the race of one suspect and not the other. Better reporting needed by Port Washington news.
