Fugitive roundup nets 1,100 sex offender suspects

Thursday, April 27, 2006; Posted: 11:16 a.m. EDT (15:16 GMT)

WASHINGTON (AP) -- More than 1,100 people wanted for violent sex crimes have been arrested in a weeklong roundup of fugitives, the Justice Department said Thursday.

The arrests were made as part of "Operation Falcon II," a nationwide dragnet timed to coincide with National Victims Rights Week.

This year's focus was on sex offenders, a group that Attorney General Alberto Gonzales has made a priority in his 15 months at the Justice Department.

Gonzales and U.S. Marshals Service Director John Clark were to discuss the results of the roundup later Thursday at a news conference in Washington.

There were 1,102 arrests of people wanted for violent sex crimes April 17-23 by federal, state and local authorities, the largest number ever captured in a single law enforcement operation, the department said.

The total number of fugitives arrested last week was not immediately available.

Last year's sweep netted more than 10,000 fugitives, 10 times the average in a week, but just 1 percent of the 1 million fugitives in the FBI's national database.

Marshals arrested 35,500 federal fugitives for all of the government budget year that ended September 30.

They worked with state and local authorities to nab another 44,000 people, according to the Marshals' Web site.

Curtis,

That's an amazing result. But let's see how things work out now in court. That's where my worries focus.

Much love,
Larry

Kirk,

ever thought the home secretary looks like something kids ride on at blackpool!

Yes, here we let them out, watch them go, then spend millions tracking them down.
Then we fill all the jails with petty offenders and let the child rapists off with a slapped wrist.

Zero tolerance they call it!
Reverse logic comes to mind, but hey,
I am not a politician,

You're all right - it's not enough because the number of them out there is way, way higher. They should all be jailed for a really long time, not just get a slap on the wrist.

That being said, I'd rather see 1,100 of them arrested than none. I'm happy that someone decided this would be a good idea. Such a large round up will probably result in not only back-slapping and congratulations, which I believe are deserved, but the realization that it was pretty easy to do, which means sex offenders are like rats. You have to keep at them constantly to effectively reduce their numbers. Just finding one pile of rat Sh** isn't enough to exterminate the problem.

ROCK ON..........Trish

Assuming the stats are correct and each pedo molests an average of 100 kids (and probably twice that) in his lifetime, that's 110,000 kids that are now safe, at least from these guys.

Nobby,

I think it was Kirk or Rik (or both?) who did a similar calculation and came to a similar result. The figures are staggering.
