Welcome to the world of Political Correctness and radical liberals.

"There was a homosapien about 5'9" was above average weight and was wearing a blue shirt with black pants that mugged me"


Swedish police will no longer be able to give descriptions of alleged criminals for fear of being seen as racist.

According to an internal letter, police in capital city Stockholm are instructed to refrain from describing suspects' race and nationality, according to news website Speisa.

The crimes “involve everything from lighter traffic accidents to serious crimes like muggings, beatings and murder,” the paper reported.

The letter specifies that, for everyday crimes such as burglary, basic information such as ethnicity, nationality, skin colour and height should not be given.

I'm not sure that will fly. What happens if they are describing an amputee, sounds like that could be considered insensitive.

Yeah, lets be scared of being racist when there's people being murdered and beaten. That's fucking stupid.

Honestly what's so racist about calling a person white, black, brown ,etc... Most stupid thing ever is when you say [Color] person and they easily get offended for no reason at all. I don't give a fuck when someone calls me Asian because ethnically I am an Asian. So why would a person be offended for being called literally what they are?

In other news, a ban on all interpersonal communication is being contemplated due to the chances of people being offended by others.

imagine how much fun it will be to describe a suspect:

"we're looking for either a guy or a girl that is about 5' - 6' suspected of a crime. if you find him/her, let us know - police"
