    The probable cause the police has is a phone call of someone who said mr. mcglothin committed the crime and there’s no surveillance that resembles him.(Every Black Person must look the same to some racist people)The only thing they have is a photo of him that took at the station and news reports all lies. The media is a huge lie. I knew this guy. I called the police station they said they have no video of him with a robbery. The police said they only have a person who called into the police station and said he committed the crime. Awful media reports why do they lie so much. I guess it sounds good to people who are bored such as this article….

    The probable cause the police has is a phone call of someone who said Mr. McGlothin committed the crime and there’s no surveillance that resembles him. (Every Black Person must look the same to some racist or bias people)The only thing they have is a photo of him that was taken at the police station and news reports of all lies. I appreciate police who do there job and not those who blame crimes on innocent people of color. The media is a huge lie. I knew this guy and he worked hard like any other American. I called the police station and also a private organization they said the police has no video of him with a robbery. The police said they only have a person who called into the police station and said he committed the crime. Awful media reports why do they lie so much. Their using innocent people like Mr. McGlothin to blame a crime on and create a false coerced interrogation. In Reno, NV this guy is not even giving no fair trial or a proper due process for his individual rights. However there is no circumstantial evidence, real evidence or direct evidence that can be proved in his involvement. Mr. McGlothin protective rights has been exploited through the amusement of Reno, NV police department and he was not been given his 1st Amendment, 6th Amendment, and 14th Amendment leaving him to the verdict of a deformation of character and Reno notorious unfair plea bargainings. I guess this article sounds good to people who are bored such as this article and the person who decided to send this to reporters….There are a lot of criminals out there please feel free to create a story that is at the scene of an actual crime with actual suspects. Please get your information to gather before you make false allegation on individuals’ character. If you know people who wants to be on television or newspapers please become a movie star and not a police officer.
