What happens to witnesses?

Do you ever feel like you’re not doing enough with your life? Like you want to start fresh and have a completely different existence?

Lately, I’ve become hooked on In Plain Sight, a new dramedy on USA about a team of U.S. Marshals who work with people in the Witness Protection Program, or Witsec, in Albuquerque, New Mexico. I find the process and the show fascinating.

What happens to people if someone wants them dead? Move away from everyone and everything you know... Never talk to anyone from your past. Get a new name, new job, new life. It has to be extremely strange.

And what if someone you currently know is in the witness protection program, and used to have another life. What if they’re a money launderer or drug runner?? So weird to think about.

Anyhow, I’m going to keep on watching In Plain Sight and the sassy repertoire of Mary Shannon.
