With new technology we can now see and hear the hidden cameras that are planted unknowingly for criminals to catch themselves up and taped for the world to see. You will see first hand accounts from witnesses, victims, and by standers stating the true panic that they felt at that moment in time. Police officers will testify that these criminals' reckless and vagrant behavior puts themselves along with the public's safety in jeopardy.
