Yeah, Rich, I agree with ya, but the point I was trying to make is that AS SOON AS somebody robs a bank the TV starts calling him a suspect, when there is no suspect, and the only thing that's known about the perp is that he's a bank robber. Why can't they say "the robber fled" instead of "the suspect fled"?
