    Is it? People normally whine about speculation so...people didn't speculate. They waited.

    Well every other death they report on appearance. White officer kills black male as an example.

    Or it was so blindly obvious as to what demographic the suspect was likely to belong to that they didn’t bother.

    Why would we expect someone who has been brought up in the dumpster fire that is Somalia to suddenly be a normal civilised individual when they're living in the UK?

    It's hardly been mentioned but the place where this happened was in the Birmingham Gay Village.

    It's being suggested that gay people were targetted like they was in the Reading stabbings.

    Police are saying it's just a coincidence. Plus tbh looking st the map of events it's spread over a huge area.

    Given what happened in Reading it wouldn't be at all surprising. Coincidence? Maybe, maybe not. Someone is dead either way.

    Ahh, gotcha.

    So, by "description" you actually mean "skin colour" because that will help for identification purposes :rolleyes:

    Don't you think that skin colour helps with identification?

    Do... do you read what you write?

    Most definitely coincidence in my opinion, as someone who knows Birmingham very well.

    Well it seems a really important factor when the accused is white and the victim is black, yet mysteriously irrelevant when the accused person is black. I think consistency is important

    I am quite sure that it helps just about as much as the fact that the attacker was "Male".

    However, I don't for one minute believe that his skin colour explains the shock of the keen amateur detectives here, most of whom were probably not wandering the streets of Birmingham early on Sunday morning ;)

    The colour of neither the attacker or the victim has been announced, probably because a teenage boy has been arrested in connection with the shooting so there is no need for community minded vigilantes to rush about hunting the attacker ;)

    Really?

    In a country that has only 3% of its population from black ethnicities?


    I mean Male takes it to about 50%

    Black then takes it to about 1.5%

    And it's a lot easier to tell the colour of somones skin colour than their weight at short notice

    You're projecting... and if you're sighing too then perhaps chill out a bit, realx, not everything is there for you to get worked up about, sometimes people comment on stuff because it's say, something silly...

    No one claimed every crime is an act of hatred, you're arguing aganst some points that haven't been made.

    Do you ever play "chick or dude?".

    It's fun for all ages.
