Post U.S. Marshals sweep apprehends 10,733 fugitives

http://www.cnn.com/2006/LAW/11/02/fu....ap/index.html

Nearly 11,000 fugitives, including sex offenders, gang members and others wanted on a variety of charges from kidnapping to weapons offenses, were swept up last week in a 24-state operation, the Justice Department was to announce Thursday.

Among the fugitives caught were 1,659 sex offenders -- including 971 who failed to register with authorities as required by law -- in what the government called the largest number ever captured in a single law enforcement effort.

The sweep, led by the U.S. Marshals Service, "has made our nation's neighborhoods and children safer by taking off the streets some of the worst sex offenders, violent felons and gang members," Attorney General Alberto Gonzales said in a prepared statement.

If there's dangerous people on the streets, and you have their location, why wait until two weeks before an election to pick them all up...

Cynical, moi?

Yes I was thinking the same thing. Maybe Mr. Bush had a little word in someone's ear, along the lines of "Our party is in shit street vote wise, lets do something to show we are the party of law and order"

Whatcha think??

No more like deja vue Ohio.

funny how there seemed to not be enough voting machines in the cities (mainly democratic) with huge lines at the polls 2 years ago......
I am sure people instead of queuing in the outside cold weather of Cleveland and Columbus and Cincy in November 2004 thought sod it and went home and didn't vote.......

yet enough voter machines in the rural counties (republican base)

no-one ever seemed to bring that up in the press.

of course Diebold didn't have much to do with it.

They don't apprehend 11,000 people every day surely? How will the courts cope with so many being caught at the same time.
