Riot Suspects

August 20, 1993

* Column One ("Looking for Faces With No Names," Aug. 16) tells about the problems in identifying dozens of suspects in the 1992 rioting despite the fact they were captured in photos or videos.

Three elements are needed: 1) Wide exposure to the citizenry of photos of the men wanted. 2) A monetary reward for accurate identifications. 3) Complete anonymity given to providers of information.

The article mentions that "some residents say their hesitancy to come forward stems from a fear of retaliation." Right! There are countless examples of individuals who paid dearly for cooperating in helping the police.
