Two earlier stings -- Falcons I and II -- were held in April over the last two years. Gonzales and Clark denied that next week's elections played any part in scheduling the latest crackdown.

Uhh, yeah. Right.

1. April
2. April
3. November 1st...

Why is it that all these people were 'missing' in the first place?

Pelagius: Uhh, yeah. Right.

Took who knows how long to organize
Took a year to organize
Took 7 months to organize

Honestly, does everything have to be some boogie man plot to piss you off.

republicans are all about ass farking other guys. just read the news, there is nothing but republican gayness.

ass fark each other on your own dime, princess.

deja vu

Government denies this week's mass arrest of 10,000 fugitives and sex offenders had anything to do with the elections. After all, they've done this same operation every March for the last two years

Isn't this a greenlight three links down?
 
2006-11-02 06:58:14 PM
Seriously. Could they have tried any harder to politicize this? Totally transparent.

Still, I'm glad apparently none of those were drug-related arrests -- "In all, Gonzales said officials caught 10,733 fugitives -- including 1,659 sex offenders, 364 gang members and thousands of others sought on kidnapping, robbery, burglary, carjacking and weapons charges."
 
2006-11-02 06:58:50 PM
What makes this so special? Shouldn't they be picking up known lawbreakers ALL OF THE TIME? I would suggest an ongoing sting operation, you know, the kind that doesn't stack bad guys like cordwood for easy collecton.
 
2006-11-02 06:59:07 PM
WHAT?!!?! Police, doing , their job ?! OMG. I'm actaully quite shocked. Seriously, normally they just ass about pretending its hard to catch people. Honestly though kudos to them, thats a LOT of scumbags.

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


Jeebus, how many one armed killers are out there?


Dr. Richard Kimble: "I didn't kill my wife."
Deputy Marshal Samuel Gerard: "I don't care. "

Mods screwed up.

The flamebait "followup" thread appeared 8 links before this one.
 
2006-11-02 07:01:59 PM
Be it April or November, why wait and round them up? For the press?
 
2006-11-02 07:03:00 PM
I think this is great. I applaud our boys in blue for finally taking it to these illegals.
A lot of people bash the cops, but really, we would all be in really bad shape without them. Bravo!
 
2006-11-02 07:03:05 PM
This doesn't make any sense. They're saying that 11000 cases suddenly got resolved in one week, just because someone ordered a special operation? Wait what? Don't you normally arrest these people as soon as you can? How is it advantageous to go after them all at the same time? What, do they all have a secret phone to let each other know the cops are coming?

I'm really genuinely confused here.

THAT is what strikes me as weird about this. They knew where 9,000+ bad guys were for how long before they found "enough" to make it worth nabbing them all?

O_o

Operation Falcon III starring Jeff Speakman now available on DVD.
 
2006-11-02 07:05:27 PM
I don't understand how
A) A sex offender who's failed to register is a "fugitive" if they know where his house is, and
B) how then knocking on the door of that house is a "sting".

But there's a lot I don't understand about police work.

\whatever..
 
2006-11-02 07:06:21 PM
"Bad guys"? Did they arrest a bunch of cartoon villains? Did they finally get Cobra Commander and Megatron?
 
2006-11-02 07:07:00 PM
Of course they round them up just before an election. Don't you know criminals tend to vote democrat?
 
2006-11-02 07:07:12 PM
Has the government taken over Fark...why do they keep pushing this same story!!! It's a cover up!!!

/dammit where is my tin foil hat

Imo the asses of the wives and mothers of republicans should be fair game.

dag nabbit we got to stop coddling these kids. a little "hide n seek" with Smelly Ed two houses down will give em character and put hair on their chests.
 
2006-11-02 07:09:59 PM
I seriously think its a bit farked they waited till election time to do this. I mean, honestly, why not pick them up immediately after you know their there, I mean, that way they don't have a chance to run.
 
2006-11-02 07:10:40 PM
In all, Gonzales said officials caught 10,733 fugitives ... More than 230 weapons were seized.

It's good to know that less than 1 in 400 "bad guys" has a weapon.

The Amazing Sapien

I agree with you the cops are great, but why were they not doing this all along. Sure, over 10,000 criminals are in custody this week but that means for the past year or so 10,000 criminals have been running around doing criminalous things.

/knows criminalous is not a word...

exactly what I was thinking. U.S. Marshalls procrastinate I guess

Do you mean less than 1 in 40?
 
2006-11-02 07:16:43 PM
Well, it's pretty obvious that the election is less than a week away. What a bunch of crap.

That's what the followup thread is about. 8 links before this one.

Wow, I'm retarded.

/used to be good at math
 
2006-11-02 07:24:23 PM
So I guess the bad guys just need to be extra careful around elections? Better than nothing I guess.

"I can assure you that the coordination of getting 3,000-plus officers and agents, and everybody together to do this, just takes a lot of coordination"
Spoken like a true law enforcement official.

2006-11-02 07:33:03 PM
Is this the same 11,000 as the article 4-5 posts down?
 
2006-11-02 07:34:14 PM
Excellent submit.......it made me lol

"Last week's roundup ... included Allen Marksberry, an unregistered sex offender in Rickman, Tennessee, who was baby-sitting several young children when he was arrested"

Why did they tell us he was babysitting kids? Because if someone is a sex offender, that means that they must be a child molester. That is so stupid.

I know, its so ridiculous. They never offend again, I dont see the problem.

Its like the people who dont let felons convicted of theft work in banks. They are so oppressed and victimized.

You do realize that the re-offense rate for sex offenders is incredibly high don't you?
 
2006-11-02 07:59:34 PM
man, I can't wait for Falcon IV - A New Hope.
 
2006-11-02 08:05:34 PM
God....what transparent election year garbage.

Why should they get a kudos for doing it all at once? What, is there like some special prize you win if you catch multiple criminals at the same time? Is there a multiple criminal Olympics that I am not aware of? I thought you were supposed to get people off the street as soon as you have a case against them, but I guess in Bush's America you let them continue raping and murdering people so that you can catch them all during Sweeps Week....

God this country is so sick.

allthebetter: You do realize that the re-offense rate for sex offenders is incredibly high don't you?

You do realize that Unixfreak was being sarcastic? (at least that's how I interpreted Uf's post).

You do realize that the re-offense rate for sex offenders is significantly less than that of other classes of criminals? Or were you being sarcastic as well?
 
2006-11-02 08:23:41 PM
Running around capturing these perps that have jumped bail is just not as cost-effective as running radar speed traps by the local constabulary.

It's also a lot more dangerous than going after that low-hanging fruit.
