muslim garbage in muslim garb
4 times in that one little article it says “ Muslim garb”.
That's rather odd, I wonder what's up with that?
Muslim garb? Sounds like we’ve got some racial profiling going on here. How do they know it wasn’t just another wacky Walmart shopper?
How many sons does you know who have??
I suspect it's CBS's way of handling the delicate problem of describing the wanted party without being accused of "stereotyping" of "profiling."
The term "Muslim garb" is, I suspect, the precise pair of words that were used by the Philadelphia Police when they released information describing the perpetrator.
By using exactly the "official description," CBS can say "hey, we're just passing on information given us by law enforcement professionals, it's not our job to second-guess what they tell us." They hope this will buy them a bit of immunity from criticism from "the community."
Philadelphia media has come under a lot of criticism because (a) crime stories are a big part of the everyday news feed from Philly, and (b) the overwhelming majority of crime-related images end up being those of Holder's people.
This creates an unfortunate level of cognitive dissonance among the wordsmiths of the City of Brotherly Love. They hate to be a party to the ongoing process of racial stereotyping they despise, while at the same time being faced with the unpleasant reality that, if they don't perpetuate the process, they'll not have very much to print in their already greatly thinned-down news rags.
But they're so much smarter than us, you see.
How did they know it was a man?
They are using the “m” word now and quite regularly too.
The government media complex is probably going to try and get the muzzies all riled up before summer too.
This is a big deal for SeeBS. In the past, if the perp were an Islam, they would only say "male suspect".

Therefore the police probably put out an APB for a white, 75 year old woman with a walker, we wouldn’t want to profile now would we?
Dear God...they have to wear gloves too?!!
