[url]http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/news/738230/posts[/url] he Daily News pictured 18 police mug shots of fugitives wanted for murder by Philadelphia police. All were either African-American, Hispanic or Asian. The front page is representative of the latest available listing of suspected murder fugitives, which list 41 African-Americans, 12 Hispanics and three Asians. Although city police arrest suspected murderers of all races every day, they theorize that these suspects mostly live in poor, minority neighborhoods, where residents are often more distrustful of police officers. "There are plenty of white people in jail for murder, but those guys are locked up," said Police Sgt. Bill Britt, second-in-command of the homicide unit's fugitive squad. "But people in the inner-city, in high-crime areas, they don't want to get involved with the police." Daily News Managing Editor Ellen Foley said there was no intent to frighten or intimidate people of color. "We apologize if the graphic treatment offended black Philadelphians," Foley said. "We were trying to explore and provide accurate information about an issue of great concern to our community. We welcome comments and criticism from our readers on any issue, especially sensitive issues such as this, because it helps us get better as journalists and truth-seekers."
