Commentary on Jody Davis Hit-and-Run in Fort Worth

It's always frustrating and disappointing to read about Texas hit-and-runs in the news. Whatever compelled the driver to leave the scene--pure self-interest, trying to hide drugs or warrants, or even drunk driving--it's important to track them down and what they could possibly have to say for themselves.

To that end, police must stay diligent and community members should come forward with any information they can provide about the suspect. Investigators mentioned they weren't able to find helpful security footage from nearby businesses, but they urge the public to call in if they were in the area or have any useful information about the vehicle or its driver. Hopefully someone will recognize the information put out in the news or be informed of what happened by the suspect and then call a tip line.

Of course police can't just kick up their feet and wait for civilians to call them. Instead, they should continue canvassing for information and evidence they can use to find and apprehend that runaway driver. If they find anything specific during their search, they should share it with the public. Ensuring all the details are out there often leads to someone--a friend or family member, a coworker, or even just a stranger who spots the vehicle--contacting authorities. It may take a little time, but if everyone stays vigilant and cooperates there's still hope.
