    Oh look, DPS must have heard me!

    From the email UNC sent me:
    The Town of Chapel Hill Police Department is investigating multiple peeping incidents occurring during the early morning of Friday, May 4, in areas adjacent to the UNC campus. The victims, UNC students residing in private residences on McCauley Street and, shortly thereafter, on Howell Street, described the suspect as a white male in his early 20s. He is believed to be 5’8” to 6’ tall with short hair.

    Where did he peep? I would like to know. I hope they catch him; toms tend to get bolder and bolder the more they get away with things.

    What was he peeping at? Maybe it was just a wandering drunk college kid trying to find his way home on a Friday night...

    Only if the perp is black...because that is racisit. Sad but true.

    Just don't call crimestoppers while your driving.

    I just think it's odd how the article describes the man as being white. Usually the race of the perp. is left out in media outlets. Right?
