Gambling with the Truth in Florida Solve 'em?
You can call it Florida Solve 'em--it's the latest card game. Trumps and jokers are just as likely to score, and it's all about solving crime. Crime Stoppers in Florida has printed 5,000 decks of playing cards with pictures and information regarding 52 of the Palm Beach County Sheriff's Office 280 unsolved homicide victims. Hoping that the reward money offered (up to $1000) will be incentive enough for inmates to provide tips, the cards will be passed out to county jail inmates in efforts to solve crime. The families of the victims widely support the effort. (More on Florida's plan.) And of course solving crimes is always a positive, but is baiting a bunch of snitches really a good thing? More on the "snitch" debate. . . [Michele Berry]
