    It was said in one of the interviews that most want to know how much money they're getting before they offer the tip.Sad times my friend. Did you notice anyone there from the SCLC or NAACP, a statement could have been made if there support was in the right pace. After all most know where the most crimes are happening.

    Well the company that tapes and edits all these videos gets about 40 percent for fees. So take that cost out and any other cost for the event and they made about fifteen. Makes you wonder.

    To think that with all the taxes that we pay each year that law enforcement has to beg for more money to pay crooks to tell on other crooks. I guess crime and or knowing criminals does pay. If this is the case they need more than $30,000.00 to solve all those murders and shootings in little L.A. I mean Greenville.

    I would think the best donation would be information leading the arrest and conviction of current crimes/criminals. Why do they need donations to do what the city and county LEO's are already doing.

    Personally I don't think people working on the crime stopper should be able to win prizes from the raffle. A lot of people may disagree with me. But it seems as if they are the ones that win NICE prizes.
