Agreed.
Comment by Maggie Jo on 3rd December 2011
I can certainly understand revealing the ethnic authenticy of a suspect when the police are seeking the public's assistance in apprehenshion, but there really is no need to add in these articles a "native woman" did this and that.

I trust it was a slip up, so perhaps the writer of these articles could get their write-ups proof-read by a Colleague prior to publishing.

I do have to chuckle after remembering one time I presented to the RCMP Detachment and the receptionist paged the Constable I was to enquire with. She announces "White Female at the front for you".

White female?!? I ain't no WHITE FEMALE! I'm a lovely olive-tone-skinned chick (with none of these tanning beds either). The noive! HA HA HA!

Cheers.
Agreement with Mr. Halley
Comment by Lisa Carpino on 2nd December 2011
I agree with Mr. Halley's comment. There is no need to state what race or nationally the person is when describing an incident. It just adds to the already negative tone Aboriginal people have to deal with on a daily basis and it's unfair. You wouldn't say, 'that gay couple had their house vanalized' or 'a straight heterosexual woman was found intoxicated' so why the need to soley discriminate amongst Aboriginal people. Just saying.
Race not really necessary
Comment by Dave Halley on 2nd December 2011
Just a thought for you.... I personally don't really think it is necessary to include the race of persons involved in the police matters. I know you don't discriminate but I can't help but notice that you don't say " white male" or " east Indian woman" in any of your police posts but do say " native woman." I believe that the race of persons involved is really of no importance.
