BREAKING!!! KANSAS CITY REWARD FOR HOMICIDE INFO INCREASED TO $10,000!! BUT WILL TIPSTERS LIVE TO SPEND IT???
Promotional tweet from Kansas City authorities . . .
Kansas City Police Via Twitter: The reward for tips in KCMO homicides is now $10,000. Thanks to @KCMO and @KCCrimeStop for making this happen.
And so we ask our AWESOME TKC BLOG COMMUNITY . . .
WILL IT WORK???
Newsies tout this program but after years of blogging homicide tip increases there has always been a great deal urban core skepticism that tips don't remain anonymous and any subsequent trial MIGHT reveal the identity of the informant in the case files i.e.. the money isn't that great if you're killed before you spend it. Accordingly, while INCREASING REWARDS DOES INSPIRE MORE TIPS, there's also an issue of TRUST of law enforcement that is often ignored.
You decide . . .
