    John, what do you want them to do...if this is the only information to go on? I wish the want to be Dick Tracy's out there would get into the profession instead of writing on blogs how the police are inept and doing a poor job and then stating some obscure fact how one case was different and that applies to all cases becuase I just thought of it and I must be right.
