LOS ANGELES (CBS) — Police on Wednesday asked for the public to help catch three burglary suspects caught on tape breaking into a Westside home.

Three male black men broke into a residence in the Pacific Palisades on September 13, 2011, around 9:00 p.m. by entering the house through the front door after one suspect forced the door open with his shoulder.

The suspects took several items of jewelry, police said, but the value is still unknown.

Each of the suspects has black hair and is between 5’9″ and 6 feet tall and 20-25 years of age.

Police said the men are suspected of multiple crimes that have occurred recently along the Sunset Boulevard corridor in the Pacific Palisades area.

Anyone with information on the crimes or who can help identify the suspects is asked to call LAPD’s West Los Angeles Burglary Detective Greg Davis at (310) 444-1568. text

    You’re kidding, right?

      About what?

  2. Hollywood Reporter says:

    This is why racial profiling is a must, does anyone think they really belong in that area.

    1. Sparky says:

      What I think, Reporter, is that you are a racially bigoted idiot.

  3. Palisades Resident says:

    Actually, the U. S. Supreme Court said in 1980 or so that being in an area where you may or may not “belong” or “seem to belong” is a constitutionally protected right. People have the right to walk anywhere, without harassment.

    They do not have the right to steal stuff, of course. But these three guys don’t make every member of their racial group into thieves. It’s easy to say, after the fact, they shouldn’t have been there because they had criminal intentions, but their intentions are individual, not a product of their skin color. It ends up sweeping up many more innocent and honest people, and subjecting them to being treated like criminals, just because they don’t look like the color of the majority of your neighborhood.

    A lot of people who live downtown – for example – are brown and black. Should we arrest every white person who walks around Broadway and Hope? A lot of bankers and stock brokers clearly don’t “belong” in that neighborhood if you judge them by the color of their skin. Should they each be stopped and questioned by the police – every day – about why they’re in the neighborhood and what their business there is? Eventually, they would stop coming to the neighborhood, and complain of harassment, humiliation, and racial discrimination. And they’d be right.

    No, racial profiling is NOT the answer.
