    Granted, perhaps it was a carbine and the victim does not know the difference between that and a rifle. But whatever. This is a matter of yards off campus, too.

    Odd that they could not identify the suspects beyond sex and height. No race, weight, age . . .

    That is always a tip off as to race. Especially true when a picture is available but not shown.

    But they get a pass on the "sex". Who can tell anymore given the dozens of categories ? And reporting it wrong comes with punishment.
