No different than the recommendations of the last Task Force: "Give cops more money and power." We need more accountability before that happens.

Perhaps if they didn't talk to you like you were some criminal yourself when you try to call in a crime, and perhaps if the cops actually came out to check it out when you called, I called on day because I saw a man three times around the 21st and Yale area who was on the news as one of the most wanted, so I called it in, stayed where I could watch him, no cop showed up, so I called again when I got home, the desk cop treated me like I was the stupidest, most annoying person on the face of the earth, she screamed at me for not knowning what his full name was...I told her the only name I knew was the one they use on the news...she told me to call back when I had all the information....I wasn't scared to report this man, I tried, but they obviously did not want to hear anything about him. He was a positive id too, we had an Ipad and looked up the story we saw on the news, it was him, but we couldn't get any cop to come and arrest him. That might be why more people don't report things like ya think?

It'll be like a koolaid stand that nobody goes to. First things first can you relocate them to a secret location and protect them and their family?? NEXT What about your family? I'm not trying to be cute when I say that but there is a remote possibility that it could get there. Don't choke on your tongue as you contemplate that thought.

Just how do they intend to get these people involved when they are either Scared, Involved in Crime, or don't care? I think this is a good idea if they give it more than just "Lip Service".
