Mark fuhrman's former LAPD homicide detective with -- now -- good morning -- -- Police chief was on and DC earlier today -- these women were bound with chains and ropes and that is.
I guess that's just the beginning of the explanation for how they can be held captive for ten years mark there are questions directed it at the police because the neighbors are coming out saying hey I saw -- -- this year.
I saw something and the -- -- police came out -- take it seriously.
You have been in some tough neighborhoods in your own police experience.
How do you go from a neighbor -- who might be suspicious about someone down the street.
To being someone who's a true advocate for potential victims.
To make sure that police follow up and go inside a home just take out for a moment Phyllis -- and your experience how that happens.
Well -- -- right bill and then working the inner city use you.
You're in your.
Engaged in and that and a lot different situation -- we're seeing on TV now I mean you know.
You can call this a working class neighborhood -- -- but the looks a little rough around the edges side would suspect that I've actually heard people reference alcohol numerous times in interviews.
I suspect that when -- the sun goes down the the I guess the complexion of -- neighborhood changes and so if you -- Put all those ingredients to a uniformed officer responding to calls where.
People won't leave their name they won't give a call back number you know -- screen meanwhile -- Loud noise banging -- and always complaints yelling and screaming -- these are.
Inner city police -- calls that you get repeatedly.
And the follow up is incredibly difficult -- the cooperation of people.
So let's not put too much.
You know responsibility -- go please I talked to Rod Wheeler my colleague here fox at work.
DC homicide and he also grew up in this neighborhood -- goes you're exactly right.
You know -- it's they're good people there but it's kind of a rough neighborhood and you know.
That means that.
Police calls -- service.
And in large amount.
-- have -- -- numbers and sometimes.
Very sparse on information.
Some of the neighbors -- are reporting.
Some things that are stunning okay pounding on the home's doors and plastic bags over the windows and neighbors says noticed a naked woman crawling on her hands and knees.
I think that will report went back three or four years.
But police said yesterday on our program 24 hours ago this not a single neighbor reported a problem at the house.
How do you get that disconnect had to explain.
Well the disconnect is this they have record of the 911 calls became man.
And it is the 911 calls that were followed up they have that record they keep recordings -- keep logs of that.
If somebody on the street door neighbor says I called doesn't mean that one they got through.
Two they actually talked to a 911 operator.
Or they gave their name their phone number or or any other information so somebody could actually follow it up or -- was -- old.
In other words I heard something in the Alley it was two or three hours ago.
Then -- obviously calls to service through with the police could be a drive by and there's there's nothing heard they've got to move to the -- It's call you know what you listen these questions -- come up among the police come out answerable we'll take it we'll see what they have to say about -- but mark thank you for your insight.
Mark -- live -- -- -- -- from -- so thank you.
