[Nate Poll] Should a 'Netizen Investigation Unit' be established?

Poll: What are your thoughts on the establishment of a 'Netizen Investigation Unit'?

1. Agree, it will help 58%
2. Disagree, it won't help 40%
3. Other 2%

The debate was brought up because of recent netizen involvement in the investigations for the 'Cream Bread Father' case (a man was hit and killed in a drunk driving accident which led the country on a nationwide search for the culprit. Police initially thought it was a luxury car but netizens from a car cafe inspected CCTV more closely and found it to be a different car which ultimately resulted in the culprit turning himself in).

1. [+191, -13] Netizens are merely netizens, they cannot be the police.

2. [+185, -11] I think we should leave it the way it is now... netizens who are interested can volunteer their services.

3. [+142, -10] I'd be scared of witch hunting and the people's court

4. [+19, -0] I don't think it's right. I know that netizens have helped a lot in solving cases but like the best replies have stated, netizens are just netizens, nothing more or less. Investigations should be left to experts and professionals of the field. Netizens create bigger chances of the spread of false information and witch hunting. Too many risks to outweigh the benefits.

5. [+15, -0] Netizen investigations have of course helped but who's going to take responsibility for the spread of false information and the witch hunting of innocent victims? It's laughable that such an idea is even being proposed... does it mean that our police are not fit for these jobs or are we simply lacking in such forces? We should not be focusing our attention on establishing netizen investigation forces but on hiring better presidents and politicians who can strengthen our police forces.

6. [+11, -0] Netizens have no sense of responsibility. Once people can hide behind an anonymous name, all sense of truth disappears.

7. [+10, -2] Honestly against it. If they do go through with it, they're going to have to make it so that every netizen has to connect their account to their name and face. So many netizens have done crazy things behind anonymous accounts.

8. [+8, -0] Netizens should be able to help voluntarily. They should not be given rights.

9. [+7, -0] This topic is even up for debate because police distort the truth so much and it's become harder and harder to trust our police forces. Even the 'Cream Bread Father' case, the police are the ones who were investigating the wrong thing.
