    The Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department (IMPD) said Oct. 9 that Josiah Keyes (pictured) is wanted for the Sept. 24 fatal shooting of 19-year-old Anthony Lloyd

    Modern media avoids listing suspects’ race directly to avoid the charge of picking on a certain group. They give enough other information about suspect’s description for you to conclude who you should be looking for. And they provide a photo. Just look for a black guy about 5’11” who looks like the photo.

    Nothing like a good debate. Then, someone pulls a gun. A human being is dead. Needless. But, I wasn’t there. Three sides to every story, what he said, what he said, and what really happened.
