    Sheriff Gives Spin On Crime-Fighting With ‘Wheel of Fugitives’

    MIAMI (CBSMiami) — A Florida sheriff is giving the search for criminals a creative spin in his game show-style weekly videos featuring Brevard County’s most wanted fugitives.

    The videos, posted on Facebook, have been viewed hundreds of thousands of times, leading to dozens of arrests.

    For the last eighteen months, a studio at the sheriff’s office has become must-see viewing in the county.

    Sheriff Wayne Ivey – the show’s Pat Sajack – had the idea and the personality to host it.


    How neat is this?

    Unless I provide a link, every one of my posts are to be considered rumor, Speculation, or simply MY OWN OPINION.

    We are the watchers. We are witnesses. We see what has gone before. We see what happens now, at this dangerous moment in human history. We see what's going to happen - what will surely happen - unless we come together: we - the Peoples of all Nations - to restore peace and harmony and balance to the Earth, our Mother.

    There is some criticism over the videos. Some object that his approach is nothing more than public shaming.

    “It reinforces the public’s blood lust for seeing people punished. It also reinforces the offender’s sense of being rejected and excluded from society,” said Jeffrey Butts with the John Jay College of Criminal Justice.

    From the OP. There's nothing "wrong" with public "shaming" of criminals. Do we stop posting any photos or personal information of criminals to avoid shaming them? The purpose of getting their pictures out is for people to ID them and phone in tips to LE so LE knows where to find them. The crimes these people have committed affect citizens in their communities. Doing what it takes to get their information to the public ensures justice and public safety. If criminals feel shamed by this, it is by their own doing. They should feel ashamed of what they have done. Let's not go deeper into that mentality of "everyone should feel good about themselves."

    If offenders feel rejected and excluded from society, it may encourage them to surrender, knowing in prison they will find more acceptance. Not many people look on the sheriff's website/FB page on a regular basis. This presentation gives the average citizen incentive to visit the sheriff's FB page and take a greater interest in criminal activity in their community. Giving the public a greater opportunity to see these fugitives and participate indirectly in their capture gives law-abiding citizens a greater sense of community.

    We have Man Hunt Monday on FB with our sheriff. But he could put a new "spin" on it, LOL. I love it.
