Operation Falcon III led by the U.S. Marshals rounded up 11,000 fugitives on the days of Oct. 22-28, among the Arrests were Sex Offenders, some that
actually registered, a lot that didn't, apparently they didn't feel the need. Some of the other fugitives consisted of gang members that appear to be
wanted for weapons charges and kidnappings. It appears this mass round up was contributed to the 2006 Adam Walsh Act, which was approved by congress
last year. The act was created because of a six year old named Adam Walsh who was abducted from a shopping mall in the state of Florida back in 1981.
DAYTON — Almost 11,000 fugitives, including several in the Dayton and Springfield areas, were swept up last week in a 24-state operation, the
Justice Department announced 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 group included gang members and others wanted on a variety
of charges from kidnapping to weapons offenses.

I apologize; I think my introduction is abit long. I am new to this writing thing. I feel whether this was October surprise or not, It still falls
under the realm of surprise at least to me anyway. It is good that some very bad people got to lose there freedoms for the choices they made, and may
now get or not something that has been coming to them for sometime, of course that’s my opinion. Kudos to the various agencies that had a hand in
this as well.
I can't help but consider the timing of this bust, being so close to the elections and all, but more then that unless you actually search for
something like this it is not really just out there for the public. So, political move or not? At least some good came from it, or at least I hope
some good comes of this.
