In the Wednesday issue of The State News, a police brief stated a robbery suspect was a masked man and described him as Asian Pacific.

Call me daft, but I do not understand the rationale that Dec.
John Ashcroft shouldnt have to defend himself against attacks of racial profiling. His track record speaks loudly that despite race or political lines, his purpose is to protect the innocent and punish the guilty.
