Apologies, it sounded as though you were insinutating that the police couldn’t tell how old the victim was because he was Asian.

Hmm I would say that is exactly what he said and working with Asians (80%) of my staff are Asian so I would agree that accuratley picking the age of Asians is difficult

The Northbourne flats angle makes me wonder if he was up to something nefarious or just in the wrong place at the wrong time.

You can get murdered at a takeaway. I’d stay away from takeaways if I were you. Dangerous stuff.

I would love to see someone try that, on a world post 911

I don’t think the OP meant to be horrible…many Asian people don’t age like Caucasians and it can be hard to know how old they are.

Yeah, sorry. I meant what Gourmet said on my behalf.

It’s going to make it that much difficult for people to realise that they may have witnessed the victim prior to his death if all they have is 20 to 40 y.o.

But then being of Asian origin that’s the norm. That’s why I said in resignation can’t really get any more accurate.

With an Asian you can’t really get any more accurate than that, can you?

WTF?

That’s a pretty horrible thing to say. I’d hazard a guess it might have something to do with the ‘major head trauma’?
