I believe this comment after the article sums it up about right: "A colossal waste of valuable law enforcement resources."

Also, if you want to really locate a couple of fugitives, you DON'T publicly announce that you're still actively looking -- you publicly announce that you've given up the chase. The latter will produce a better chance of a fugitive letting his guard down.

But, in my opinion, if these "dangerous criminals" have been out for fifty years and have stayed off the radar that long, isn't it possible that they've actually been rehabilitated?

"Nobody wants prisons built near where they live. "NIMBY" they said. Do people really think a bunch of thugs and pimps and hoes are going to get anywhere near that place? And if an inmate escapes what do you thing they're going to do? hang around?!"


Miss you George.

The country is broke. This is maybe not the best time to be bragging that you are spending taxpayer dollars to hunt for three guys that are geriatric if not dead. Someone might get some idea there are some lay-off opportunities at the federal level....

Oh, they've already let their guards down.

Of course, 50-year old skelatons that were picked clean by fish and subsequently settled into the sediment the bottom of the San Francisco Bay aren't usually know for their vigilance.

FTA: "No matter where the leads take us, or how many man hours are spent on this historic case, the Marshals Service will continue to investigate to the fullest extent possible," said David Harlow, assistant director, U.S. Marshals Investigative Operations Division.

I'm so glad they are still wasting our tax dollars on this. Farking idiots.

If I knew where any of them were at, I probably wouldn't turn them in for just this reason.

Let's face it, the spokesman talks about "No matter where the leads take us, or how many man hours are spent on this historic case, the Marshals Service will continue to investigate to the fullest extent possible," because that's what he is supposed to say. Most likely, investigating "to the fullest extent possible" means running their photos through aging software and printing out a few fliers for the post office, or the guys at the San Francisco field office farking with the new guy by making it his first big case. If you get a random tip, like the body they exhumed, you have to follow it, but really, I doubt the Marshals are wasting too much time and money on this.

(Ten years ago / In 1972), a crack commando unit was sent to prison by a military court for a crime they didn't commit. These men promptly escaped from a maximum security stockade to the Los Angeles underground. Today, still wanted by the government, they survive as soldiers of fortune. If you have a problem, if no one else can help, and if you can find them, maybe you can hire... The A-Team.

I guess they now have to figure out a way to break Murdock out of that mental institution, again.

Doh! Forgot to edit the 1972 from Wiki...that should be 2002...

And you make a public announcement that they all have won free TVs. They just have to go pick them up.

I vividly remember one of the first DUI checkpoints that I was ever stopped at. Well, it was a DUI checkpoint according to the giant road sign and the officer who stopped me. There were four of us in my mom's station wagon at about 1 AM. There was a large cooler in the back. We were all 19-20 years old. The officer took a good look at everyone in the vehicle while another pointed his flashlight all over the cargo area. We weren't asked our ages, what was in the cooler, where we were coming from, or if we'd had anything to drink. I wasn't even asked to provide ID. We were told to drive home and not stop for anyone on the side of the road.

When we got home we turned on the TV and saw news about a manhunt for an escaped prison inmate. The prison was about a mile from where we were stopped. He was a convicted murderer and, I'm not making this up, escaped from his cell via the window using bed sheets tied together.

Subby a slacker for omitting "This is a repeat from 1962."
But that would give it away, right?

Damn straight. Just think of all the pot smokers who could be behind bars, if Tommy Lee Jones had not wasted countless man-hours pursuing these 3 stooges...

They most likely drowned due to the deadly rip currents of the Bay.

I know this from some of the raincoats, and from seeing quite a few rip currents in my time.

If they entered the water at high or low tide, they would have a period of relative calm to swim.
