  1. Why do you name the race of the attacker but not of the victim? Why mention race at all unless it’s relevant or is part of a detailed description?

    1. Steve: Thank you for your comment. You’re right. Generally we would put ethnicity into an article on crime if we had a full description of a suspect–height, weight, age, facial hair etc–that might help.
