'Wanted for Murder'

There's a video billboard that went up on Route 1 a while ago. It usually shows a string of ads for local businesses.

This morning, on my way in to work, lo and behold it says Wanted for Murder. There was a mug shot of some dude, which you could very clearly see from way off down the highway.

I am impressed.

Would be interesting to know the info behind it. Are they testing an ad to see if people are paying attention or was the face depicted really a guy wanted for murder?

We're starting to see a lot of things that act in the public interest. Up here we have the "amber alert" system. It usually acts as a notification system for highway construction, but has been activated when a child has been abducted. It seems to be relatively successful in recovering children.

Yeah, I've heard maybe one or two amber alerts down here, too. I remember them for child abduction stuff, which is great.

I saw it again this morning, it is indeed "for real". It's got the guys name and everything (something Williams) as well as the photo, plus a number to call the Philadelphia office of the FBI.
