Black Pedestrian Target of Racial Slur, Thrown Milkshake

A 40-year-old African-American man was reportedly harassed while walking along Main Street.

A 40-year-old African-American man was walking along the 100-block of Main Street at around 3:27 Thursday afternoon when he heard a voice coming from a white station wagon yelling a racial slur at him. Then a milkshake was thrown at him, police said.

The shake did not hit the pedestrian, who told officers that there were four white males, who appeared to be in their late teens, in the car. Police said the victim was unable to get the license plate number.

Profiling a trouble maker is putting yourself on the same level as those kids.

Dusting for prints? Surveillance video? While the act was shameful, was a crime even committed?

Finger prints won't do much if they aren't in the system already =/. It probably was just a bunch of teenager punks, but didn't this happen before in the past (Someone throwing a milkshake out a window at a pedestrian)?
