| Turning This TV Hour into a Roll Call Training Session for the Nationwide Eyes & Ears of Our Police, people like YOU!
Sometimes a truly brilliant idea emerges which was seemingly under all of our noses all along! Perhaps it was just a little too obvious, and no one ever began the often unconscious process of "connecting the dots!" Such a concept was "AMERICA'S MOST WANTED!" (1988-Present).

With the creation of this top rated Saturday Evening Fox Network stalwart, the dissemination of valuable information on the most serious of crimes is transmitted "from Maine to California", Florida to Alaska and Washington, D.C. to Hawaii. The use of the finest of Television Arts & Sciences goes into the preparation of the program segments which detail the background to some of the most heinous crimes of recent times. Many crimes are re-staged in docudrama fashion, making the incidents vivid and memorable to all who view.

There is an old principle in Police Work, one which is as old as sin itself, that the Quality of Police Work is only as good as the input received from the Citizenry. In other words we need the help and information from those people out there in the Community.

The people at the Fox Network took the idea step further; by building this weekly series around this concept. So, instead of having the problem of Budgetary Constraints. Every Federal, State, County and Municipality has their trouble with the "Suits" and "Bean Counters". Following the Fox Television method, we not only don't need to use any Tax Generated Public Funding, but rather the opposite occurs. A popular show like "AMERICA'S MOST WANTED" actually generates monies via the application of Free Enterprise make it profitable for the Network.

And that is a most desirable situation; and one that has now been responsible for???? Captures of these Wanted Fugitives! AS for the Host, John Walsh; how can we say enough? For those who haven't heard the story, Mr. Walsh's Son was Kidnapped and being held for a Ransom; but the scum went ahead and killed the Walsh Boy in the most despicable way. We cannot imagine the unbelievable grief, horror and shock that must run through him; even to this day.

But John Walsh channeled his energy in an effort to bring as many of the most vicious and deadly killers, stick-up scum, burglars, junkies and other sub-human dirt* to justice. Mr. Walsh has done a great, selfless and magnanimous gesture in his quest that others will be spared the indescribable grief that he and his Whole Family endured.

For "AMERICA'S MOST WANTED" and indeed for all of America, Canada and the rest of the World; we say, "God Bless You, John Walsh and may you go directly to the Lord when the Time comes!" NOTE: * There is a tendency on the part of many of us to refer to these disgusting creeps, "Animals". Well, folks we respectfully beg to differ; for we never have seen such behaviour from 'dumb' animals!.
