    One of the best articles I have read. If these murders were happening to cops, judges, district attorneys, and their family members, they would be totally behind it. Yes, the police should help people who are alive; however, closing these unsolved murder case would stop future murders and it would give closure to the families of the murdered victims. Then again, you have the Supreme Court saying that the police do not have a constitutional duty to protect someone and you have cops like Sheriff Clarke telling the public don’t bother to call the police.
