0006235: Report Crimes jobs generated and taken, but never completed
Dwarfs throwing tantrums will generated a report crime job for a witness.

That witness will take the job and follow the sheriff/captain of the guard around until the job is apparently completed.

The sheriff/captain of the guard never acts on those types of reports and they aren't recorded in the justice screen.
Induce a tantrum setting where there are fist-fights/murders/building destruction and follow witnesses to the sheriff/captain of the guard.
No tags attached.

This was asked about & answered in a previous FOTF Q&A thread:

Will we ever be able to arrest tantruming dwarves again? Personally, I don't like seeing civilians go unpunished for crippling craftsdwarves and destroying furniture.

Are those crimes not reported by witnesses? I don't remember where that is at. The intention is not to decriminalize those acts, in any case.

Need a save for this.

I've also noticed this issue. Some dwarf punches another dude in the dining hall, 30 dwarves all swarm to report the crime to the Captain of the Guard/Sheriff and then nothing happens after that.

Was testing out other things and had this happen. Vandalism and assault aren't properly reported even though witnesses scramble to the Sheriff with the job to do so.

This appears fixed now - I'm getting both disorderly conduct and building destruction reports on the justice screen again. In this instance, my captain of the guard is also the mayor.
