The two suspects are believed to be male based on their voices, Earl said. The man holding what appears to be a handgun is described as a five-foot-eleven black male wearing a black burka with "shiny items" on the sleeves.......

The second suspect is described as a six-foot-three man of indeterminate skin colour, wearing a black burka with black boots.........

Earl said retailers should be on "high alert" at this time of year if they see individuals wearing burkas come in. He added that burkas are not as conspicuous as ski masks for would-be robbers, making it much easier for them to blend in with a crowd.

Maybe it's just me, but I would be suspicious if I saw  5'11" and 6'3" people wearing burkas. I don't think the burkas would be a help in blending into the crowd. Quite the contrary. I would find them much more conspicuous than ski masks.

Yeah, this is racist scaremongering and I see no reason why this needs to be a thread on babble. So...closing.
