– They solved the case that Borepatch mentioned a while back. Even though 100% of the crime committed in this neighborhood is committed by young black men (I’ve been reading the crime reports for three years – incidentally, I still can’t figure out how the police department is able to get away with using BM for “black male” in all their reports) any comments suggesting that the perpetrators were young black men were flagged as offensive (in the future all comments will be flagged for offensiveness).
