Someone pointed out to me that those who have information on unsolved, serious crimes from the past may now feel more comfortable in providing their information via Crimestoppers because of the guarantee of anonymity. I think this is a very valid observation. In the past the person may have found it very difficult to give information, not only because of the lack of a Crimestoppers facility, but because of where they were in their life and over the years have wrestled with their conscience. Well today that person can get that off their conscience and help bring closure to a victim somewhere in NZ without identifying themselves to anyone. Crimestoppers just want the information you have, not who you are.
A thought for today.
