Again, the ONLY reason that citicens should be willing to help find the killer is to get the death sentence! LET STRETGANGS KILL EACH OTHER!!! Round them ALL up and put them in a giant room each with a gun FULL of bullets!! Lock the door like a bank vault and let them shoot each other!!! We'll NEVER have to worry about them AGAIN!!!
