    What's the young white male look, most young black and white males dress very much alike, other than skin color obviously. The stereotype is the problem with most ppl over the age of 30.

    No, your point? Mine is that the common look for young black males is saggy pants, hoodies and facial hair. When a crime is committed, the police are looking for this description most of the time, and everywhere you look you see it.

    High definition security systems cost a pretty penny. To me, it's a good investment, but I can see how it might be a tough decision for small business owners...cameras won't stop the theft, they are really only useful after the fact, so you'll lose that cash anyway, and you'll pay more to see the crime clearly.

    Yep. Looks like all the other robbery suspect photos. We can get High Def pics from outer space but can't get a decent pic from a convenience store camera. Even my cellphone takes better pics than this.
