An in-depth look at something most of us will never experience but need to know, just in case.

Noted. Unfortunately, witnesses can never feel safe, can never feel protected.

One can never feel truly safe, now can one! This proves it!

I think what's most disturbing is not the necessity for a Witness Protectiom Program, but law enforcement's reluctance notonly to use it but to their seeming reluctance to even tell crime witnesses who have been threatened that the program even exists...

Safe witnesses are on very shaky ground-too many know their whereabouts.
