Pizza Hunt

Cool idea from Ohio:

CINCINNATI - Customers at some suburban pizza parlors are getting something extra with their pepperoni and mushrooms — wanted posters for parents accused of failing to pay child support.

The idea came to Cynthia Brown, executive director of the Butler County Child Enforcement Agency, while she was ordering pizza.

"It suddenly dawned on me that most people running from the law don't eat out, they order pizza," said Brown, whose county is north of Cincinnati.

But they shouldn't forget the taverns, pawn shops and payday loans places.

Novel idea, but somewhere between the aroma of the pizza and the calzones, I can smell the ACLU just waiting to pounce all over this....

Whatever it takes. But don't we want to reach the people that will turn them in, rather than the deadbeats -- who know perfectly well they're running from the law? Maybe they think the new girlfriends/boyfriends living with them will see the mug shots on last night's pizza box and call the cops. It could work...
