Two 16 year old girls dragged off a train, roughed up and robbed, is treated as a routine event

The attackers are all black, the victims both white, yet read the descriptions given out by the authorities, no race and "long blond hair"? The victims were "taunted"? Being dragged off a city subway train in the course of a mob race attack and robbery is just "taunting"?
Watch the video for the "long blond hair".

Police are looking for 12 female suspects wanted for allegedly taunting two teenage girls on a subway before hauling them off by their hair at a Bronx station and stealing one of their phones.

Police say two 16-year-old girls were riding a southbound 4 train March 31 when another group of girls approached them. The dozen suspects began to taunt the victims, cops say.
