In its report about low homicide clearance rates, CBS notes a disparity in clearance rates for cases involving black victims and those involving white victims. Cases involving white victims, the report claims, are resolved "about 50% more than when the victims were black." However, FBI data indicates that between 2010 and 2020, there were approximately 16% more black homicide victims nationwide than white victims, and more black victims mean more of their cases are unsolved.

Not to mention, differences in clearance reporting affects overall numbers and suggest that the clearance rate for black victims might be even lower than otherwise thought. Chicago, with its remarkably high homicide rate, often grants "exceptional clearances" — intended to be used only when an offender is dead, serving a sentence on another case, or when a victim refuses to cooperate — to cases in which no perpetrator has been tried or perhaps even identified, an indication that the 44% clearance rate Chicago reported in 2020 may have been inflated.

But while victim demographics, police department sizes, and changing crime rates are interesting, they miss the true story at the most basic level: the grieving friends and family members who are left without answers.

Marsha Mayes, whose 3-year-old son Terrell Mayes Jr. was killed by a stray bullet more than a decade ago, has still not gotten justice, but she remains hopeful.

"I want the killer to know you can't run," Mayes said. "God knows everything."

Suspect At-Large After Violent Robbery At Bethpage 7-Eleven

A suspect is on the loose after a violent robbery at a Long Island 7-Eleven.

It happened around 4:30 p.m. Friday, Aug. 5 in Bethpage.

That's when the suspect entered the store located at 497 Stewart Ave., selected approximately $20 worth of merchandise and when he realized he hadn’t any money requested from the clerk that he receive the items for free, Nassau County Police said. 

When the clerk refused, the suspect went behind the counter, approached the 36-year-old man,  grabbed his arms, used his head to assault the victim’s head and then pushed him to the ground, according to police. 

 The suspect fled the scene on foot toward the train station, said police.

The victim sustained an abrasion to his forehead and significant pain to his head, back, and elbows.

The suspect is described as being Black, about 6-foot, 200 pounds, approximately 40 years of age, with a thin build, black hair, with a full beard and mustache, wearing a black-and-yellow colored jacket, black-colored shorts, a black baseball style cap, headphones, and a black backpack.

Detectives request anyone with information to contact Nassau County Crime Stoppers at 1-800-244-TIPS. All callers will remain anonymous.
