How Far Do Canvasses Extend?

by Ryu

The information is out there. You’ve just got to look for it.

“Canvasses” occur at violent crime scene. During a canvass, cops go around the neighborhood looking for witnesses and taking interviews.

In general, most canvasses will be about 2 blocks in all directions around the crime scene. BUT, they can go further. Some go for a half mile, again in all directions.

…but its not over after the first pass. If a good lead detective is working the case, there will be another canvass the next day, at the same time when the crime occured. Then a week later at the same time, and a month after that.

The “common” perception of beat cops is that canvasses are a pain in the ass. They don’t get any credit for them. Many times leads will send out just anyone out to go canvass. The average cop just wants to get it over with.

Many modern cops are “badge-heavy.” No one wants to talk to cops like this. So naturally, they don’t find any witnesses or they find only reluctant wits.

  1. Under a radically liberated regime, the only substantive “crime” is perpetuation of genuine white Supremacy. So if the perpetuation of genuine wS isn’t your first, second and third move then your “crimes” are nothing more profound than personal preferences. Which of course does nothing other than validate the necessity of a radically liberated regime.

    • One sees that particular in Europe, TD. Any expression of WS is worthy of prison time. Even mere words on the internet.
