March 5 – The Police Department and the Mid-Peninsula Media Center have partnered
again to host the second episode of the cable-television show “MAKE THE CALL”. The
show will be hosted by former Judge LaDoris Cordell (CBS5 legal analyst) and will air
tonight, March 5, 2009, at 7:00 p.m. on the Mid-Peninsula Cable Channel 27. The show
will also stream simultaneously on the Media Center’s website.

This show will profile two unsolved murders (cold-cases) in East Palo Alto and feature
the friends and families of the victims in an effort to humanize the victims, encourage
witnesses to get involved, and elicit information that will help solve these cases.
As part of the show Faye McNair-Knox, Ph.D., Executive Director, One East Palo Alto
and Heather Sterns, Executive Director, For Youth By Youth (FYBY), will participate in a
panel discussion on the “Live in Peace Movement” in East Palo Alto.

The Police Department will also display its new “CrimeReports” system that allows
community members to track real-time crime data and receive email alerts when crimes
occur in their neighborhood. Throughout the program the Police Department will provide
its anonymous murder tip line (1-888-Murder-0) and air its “Stop the Violence” video
(made in partnership with “No More Tears” – a group of San Quentin inmates) and “Most
Wanted” list.

television channels 26, 27, 28, 29 and 30 that reach cable subscribers in Palo Alto, East

Can you delete this entire thread? The person is misinforming people because the date is incorrect. If that program is on March 5, that was yesterday, not tonite.

I'll actually leave this thread up because it looks like an interesting program. But you are correct, the date listed is inaccurate. According to the Media Center's website, the program will air on March 8 (Sunday) and then periodically until March 21. Here is the schedule: Web Link

In addition, here is the news story we posted about the program: Web Link
