Just who is crime stoppers? Just how many people realize crime stoppers is a private organization and as such has it's own agenda. And just how many people could once believe Queensland police would be corrupt enough to run the State's crime gangs ala Bjelke-Petersen/Commisioner Lewis style. Is crime stoppers legitimate or ultimately is it being used by GOD to monitor if he has been busted? PS GOD was the name given by the Queensland CJC for the illegal police drug baron from north Qld. who was never exposed and culled. Sweep this one under the carpet and lets talk bullshit. Crime Stoppers 1800 333000=18=666. The Devil.
