    Why does he have to be a black boy versus a black male

    if you take offense to him being called a black boy what would you prefer they call him?

    I don't know that I find it offensive, they could have given a better description. Black youth, 5'5" tall, 120 pounds brown hair light mustache etc. I don't know if he is black or just dark skinned. Could be hispanic.

    how old is the dude and what charges was he held on? Don't think it was cow-tiping. When they catch him he needs to be placed in admin-seg at Central Prison. This is a single cell setting where they place the really bad boys who can't behave themselves in prison.

    Age, height, weight? Who gave description "black boy"? I am sure someone will be complaining about that.

    I guess this is a case of protecting the poor little guy, by not printing his last name or age... looks to me like he's old enough to have his full name &/ or age printed- a juvenile delinquent- AN ESCAPED ONE, AT THAT!- doesn't need much protection of privacy, as far as I am concerned!

    Great...He's been gone for 12 days before anyone misses him!
