      30-40? He looks 50+. Catch him, lock his thieving behind up.

      I hope the bicycle gets returned to its rightful owner and

      Happy St Patrick’s everyone!

      It is so frustrating to read a description of a person as “Hispanic” — what is that supposed to mean?

      • dannyboy says:

        Loosely it means “Other”; usually written by someone who know a great deal about their own race, ethnicity but not-so-much about anybody else.

        There’s a lot of that going around.

          For starters, include at least Argentina, Bolivia, Chile, Colombia, Costa Rica, Cuba, Dominican Republic, Ecuador, El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras, Mexico, Nicaragua, Panama, Paraguay, Peru, Puerto Rico, Spain, Uruguay, and Venezuela.

        good point.

        And how would they know from the pic that he is “hispanic”?

    5. CR says:

      Some, if not most, so-called “Hispanics” are white; many people from Spanish-speaking countries or former Spanish colonies are also partly Asian, and if language is a criterion, many may not even speak Spanish or have Spanish-like accents — so how can one really tell who is Hispanic, particularly from a photo or video?
