An anonymous tip led to an international manhunt for the criminals responsible for the deaths of children buried on a remote property.
Except none of that ever happened. It's hard to believe that warrants can be issued nowadays on an anonymous tip and mass hysteria.
I called the police once when I saw a car hit a stop sign down the block and tried to report it anonymously. I knew the police would probably give my home address out to the mob of criminal drunken hoons who were driving recklessly in the street if they asked for it. They were not very interested in the incident, instead they tried to convict me of the crime over the phone and threatened me that they knew what number I was calling from and could easily trace me, a "particular individual." Of course, I will never call again in the future, knowing this is how they respond to reports by citizens of things they have witnessed.
IDIOCRACY. IT'S NOT 500 YEARS IN THE FUTURE. IT'S RIGHT NOW.
