I often pondered that a sheriff ought to be able to form a conscripted militia, deputizing anyone and everyone he so chose, to form massive search
parties of "volunteered", commandeer the services of McD's, Wal-Mart, the local bus line, etc.. to feed, outfit, and transport the militia, in an
immediate and urgent attempt to find/rescue the missing person.
So much time is wasted by waiting for that grace period that the experts came up with before someone can officially be classified missing, all the
time fighting the other clock that the experts came up determining how long the chances of finding the person alive....
So what if every now and then the person isn't missing after all, and it was a misunderstanding or bad attempt at humor? If it worked 1 out of 100
times to save someone's life, it would be worth it. It would be inconvenient to some, but gratifying to others.
The Feds can still do their profiling thing, but meanwhile boots are on the street, searching high and low, knocking on every door, searching every
street, alley, ditch, copse of trees, forest.
