Click and be appalled (but not shocked)



.....the guy on the left is the person police arrested for the killing of three Brooklyn shopkeepers and the “guy” on the right is the sketch the police originally released.

....................

I saw this last night and I was so angry. Like, really?

So. Uh. Is this just their “Stock Negro Criminal” drawing they pull out for all crimes? BECAUSE HOW THE FUCK DID YOU GET THIS PICTURE FROM ANY DESCRIPTION OF THAT DUDE?

3. The shape of the face is the same

its possible that he was wearing a ski mask or it was dark out. I did a paper a few semesters ago and part of the research included false witnesses and it is a major issue including the fact that human memory is not infallible like we like to think.

6. There was also the assumption that the dude was African American, which

if it was a ski mask was a leap instead of assuming, it could have been a white guy in a ski-mask and sunglasses.

8. When it comes to police sketches

people do tend to take leaps on what they remember.

13. Lucky for the perp!

If he'd been the guy on the right, he would either already be sentenced to life behind bars, or he would have been shot while "resisting arrest."
