Dateline special on Rachel Hoffman

On Friday, January 16, NBC's "Dateline" will feature an hour-long profile of the tragic death of Florida college student Rachel Hoffman. Ms. Hoffman was arrested with marijuana and unfortunately trusted local police to become an undercover informant, which ultimately led to her murder. Her death has forced Florida police departments to re-examine the use of confidential informants in drug cases and raised the question publicly about decriminalizing marijuana for adult use.

I highly recommend watching this program. Let MPP know what you thought of the segment.

Rachel Hoffman Dateline NBC story won't air tonight

By Jennifer Portman • DEMOCRAT STAFF WRITER • January 16, 2009

Tonight’s airing of Dateline NBC’s story on Rachel Hoffman will be postponed until a later date.

The hour-long program is being preempted by coverage of this week’s airplane crash in New York City.

Hoffman, 23, a Florida State University graduate, was working as a Tallahassee police informant when she was fatally shot during a botched drug bust in May.

Stay updated with news about the airing at or via the Facebook in the group called Rachel Hoffman: Uncovering the Truth.
