Good news magazine show which has helped capture many dangerous criminals
1 August 2007 | by Catherine_Grace_ZehSee all my reviews

"AMERICA'S MOST WANTED," in my opinion, is a good news magazine show which has helped capture many dangerous criminals. I enjoy seeing John Walsh as the host. There are many reasons why I said that. Also, I had no idea that John Walsh lost his own son to violence until maybe a few years ago. If you ask me, it seems that many criminals seem to get set free on technicalities due to a lack of evidence or some other hole in a case. Still, I enjoy hearing about dangerous fugitives getting what they deserve. The only thing I don't like hearing about are when someone has been murdered or gone missing. Now, in conclusion, I hope this show never ends.
