Today is not a good day to be a fugitive from justice in Colorado. Police officers are swarming out en masse to capture those they consider Colorado’s 50 most wanted criminals. Unfortunately for the welfare of the public, it’s not the big fish that are being caught. Police have arrested five of the 50, but as of this afternoon, 17 other arrests were of small fry not on the list. Police say we have an obligation to help them catch criminals. I disagree. That”s their job. I think it’s dangerous to ask the citizenry to play junior Dick Tracy. But, if you want to play along, here’s the number for Crime Stoppers: 720-913-STOP.
