American Comandante -

<a href="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vCHcSZxxXE4" target="_blank">http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vCHcSZxxXE4</a>.

A look at a man searching for his place in life who joins the Cuban Revolution of the late 50's, and is later betrayed. A fascinating story.

Abacus, Small Enough to Fail -

<a href="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=j6arpG640uk" target="_blank">http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=j6arpG640uk</a>.

A look at a small family owned bank that served a niche clientele, and the trouble they got into shortly after the late 2000's savings and loan meltdown that happened here in the States. Interesting little documentary that raises questions about how the meltdown and banking law in the US is handled.

From its Youtube page,

Although fire lookouts continue to be critical front-line components of our forest system’s battle to detect and prevent wildfires, their roles often times go unnoticed, due largely to both the manual nature of the work involved and the quiet, extremely solitary nature of the working environment. Leif Haugen is a fire lookout in a remote corner of the Flathead National Forest in northwestern Montana, and each summer he lives and works alone on top of a mountain three miles from the Canadian border. A simple, somewhat primitive one-room structure serves as both his home and office; however, what it may lack in amenities (neither electricity nor running water are available) is more than compensated for by the majestic, 360-degree views of the world that his perch provides. With only a remote radio to keep him connected to the outside world, Leif’s primary responsibility is to scan the valley floor for any signs of destructive fire activity - one which calls for enduring long stretches of tedium and an eagle’s eye and quick response the moment fire is spotted or lighting strikes in the distance. There are approximately 500 active lookouts currently operating in some of the most rugged and desolate outposts of the American West. The Lookout captures both the critical nature of one fire lookout's work as well as the life of quiet, contemplative solitude which accompanies his job.

I have become increasingly interesting in watching Missing Persons Documentary. Getbiggers, are there any documentaries I should watch?

It's very baffling how people go missing, never to be found again. Law enforcement specialists say that many people who go missing don't want to be found. Obviously, this is the case for adolescents, young adults, or adults, who leave their home for whatever reason. But, imagine being a parent and never finding out what happened to your child. The idea that someone can go missing and never be found again must be scary for a lot of people, especially for parents. Its like people vanish into thin air.

"The 2016 Missing Person and Unidentified Person Statistics report from the National Crime Information Center (NCIC), the country’s primary database for tracking crime, indicates that there were more than 645,000 missing person records entered into their database last year, of which 88,040 were still considered active missing persons cases at year’s end"

That is still 88,000 people unaccounted for! If any getbigger went missing, I would definitely try to track them down.

Having worked in a missing persons unit as a Detective for 2 years, I am happy to tell you that of the 645000 entered each year, the vast majority are teens that are simply skipping school, staying with friends and many of the reports are due to repeat offenders that may "runaway" dozens of times a year. The parents are required to report them as missing and do so. Within 24-48 hours they are located and returned home, only to repeat the process

Then there are the teens that run away from home for good, either home life sucked, or they had a boyfriend they loved and wanted to be with but the parents wouldn't approve. Others had a horrible home life and hit the streets. Austin was full of what was known as Drag Rats.. "missing persons" that just preferred to live on the streets

The thing that intrigued me, there are a ridiculous amount of serial killers we have no idea about who prey on interstate routes and will pick up some of these runaways, or those just hitchhiking for fun and they end up in a shallow grave in the desert. 10's of thousands since the 70's

There was a guy who went missing around here in Feb. Somehow I gotta link sent to me and couldve swore I saw the dude in Nov. Msgs the mom who lived on the east coast somewhere. N.H. or something and she actually came out here to look for him and wanted to meet at a coffee place even though I wasn't even sure it was him and it was 2-3months before he went missing. Turns out he actually was in the area I was around that time amd ended up working in the pot farms up in the mountains outside town run by the cartels. She was out here for about 3 weeks and drove everywhere here to San diego, even east side San Diego. Came back and met you messaged her regarding how to find people in jails in Tijuana or Mexicali (somebody had asked if he was in jail in Mexico possibly, and somebody else said contact consulate because they have names of everybody in Mexican jails. I said that wasn't true at all when I was in jail down there absolutely nobody knew until a couple days later someone had a cell phone and uncalled my Ex.  and the only reason I got out because I got lucky and look like a Marine and one Sunday afternoon the MP's came down from the naval base and gathered up all the Marines and navy guys and my brother in law was a marine and knew a few of the guys and I left with them... Anyways.. So told her she'd have to actually go down to the actual jails and ask and not rely on the consulate or whatever it's called... Especially if he was smuggling dope or cash into or out of Mexico. She ended up not having time to do that.... That dude hasn't been seen since and is probably dead in the desert somewhere for being somewhere he didn't belong or seeing/hearing something he shouldn't have.

Then maybe three or four months ago there is a couple that disappeared somewhere on the freeway between Cathedral City and the Salton Sea on their way back to Cathedral City

Then maybe three or four months ago there is a couple that disappeared somewhere on the freeway between Cathedral City and the Salton Sea on their way back to Cathedral City and the next day their SUV was found up the 10 freeway almost by my ex-girlfriend's House near Banning, a good 30mins past cathedral city. SUV was just parked off in the side of the freeway there don't even think it was by any off ramps car started up just fine had a half tank of gas in it but nobody around it and that couple hasn't been seen since. Mexican dude and Mexican girl early twenties. I guess the girl would have been wearing pajamas and socks with no shoes or something so it ain't like they would have been walking anywhere (she'd dropped off friends before picking up her bf around the Salton Sea or whatever city is up that way).

Again... Probably been picked dry by the coyotes in the desert. Especially since their sub was just parked by the freeway.

Neither of these stories ever made on the news I just circulated amongst locals and whatnot. Cops don't even look into it that much they say the people are adults and " probably just don't want to be found" or some nonsense.

<a href="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KU87XziW5CM" target="_blank">http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KU87XziW5CM</a>.

Anyone interested should watch it quick, as it's the full movie that was snuck up.

I love that one. If you like police stuff, Try "The Police Tapes" from 1977, it is the basis for most ride along type cop shows you see now. Watch it quick if you're interested, it always gets pulled down now. IFC bought it and usually pairs it with The 75, so they protect it hard -

<a href="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MQAClmeKgQk" target="_blank">http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MQAClmeKgQk</a>.

Another good one that gets pulled, but might still be on HBO Go is "Lock Up - The Prisoners of Rikers Island" from 1994, don't confuse it with the MSNBC version, this one is rough -
