'America's Most Wanted', 'Forensic Files', 'Cold Case Files', 'The First 48' and 'Crime 360'. These are some of the most watched crime related reality shows on television. Almost everyone has seen at least one episode. Why? Because Americans are fascinated with the idea of chasing fugitives. How many movies have been based on just that? It's exciting and it's real. Wanted fugitives are everywhere and anywhere.
Over 60 years ago the FBI constructed a 'Most Wanted' list of criminals ranging from James Earl Ray, the escaped assassin of Martin Luther King Jr. to Osama bin Laden. In 1949 a report for International News was writing a 'toughest guys' story resulting in the FBI's Most Wanted List.
The official website of the FBI (http://www.fbi.gov/) challenges you to 'Be a part of the solution'. The current top ten include Osama bin Laden, James J Bulger, Glen Stewart Godwin, Robert William Fisher, Semion Mogilevich, Eduardo Ravelo, Alexis Flores, Joe Luis Saenz, Victor Manuel Gerena and Jason Derek Brown.
There is a criteria for placement in the 'top ten'. They must, of course be especially dangerous and menacing and have a lengthy criminal history. They must also be of interest to the public, otherwise reporters would have little to write about. With the modern media being so available to the public this is essential. After all, the ultimate purpose of this list is to catch the fugitive. We no longer have to go down to the post office to see their pictures hanging on the wall, we have the Internet.
You may be wondering what the current top ten are wanted for. I think Osama bin Laden is no mystery, but who are the rest of these notorious persons? James J Bulger is wanted for 19 counts of murder and is allegedly involved in organized crime. Glen Stewart Godwin is an escapee from Folsem State Prison in California where he was serving time for murder. Robert William Fisher is being sought for murder and arson. Semion Mogilevich for various fraud related crimes and conspiracy. Eduardo Ravelo for racketeering and conspiracy involving drug related crimes. Alexis Flores for kidnapping and murder. Joe Luis Saenz for murder, kidnapping and rape. Victor Manuel Gerena is wanted for armed robbery. And Jason Derek Brown for murder and armed robbery.
Wanted lists are not limited to the FBI. Your local law enforcement agencies have 'wanted' lists and 'most wanted' lists on their web sites as well. Each state and county list those criminals accordingly. The FBI does not limit their web site to these high profile criminals. They also have lists categorized by crime type. Crimes against children, cyber crimes, terrorists, domestic terrorists and so forth.
There are large rewards being offered for information leading to the capture of these individuals. Out of 494 who have been listed, 463 have been captured or located. The longest amount of time a fugitive has been on the list was in excess of 27 years, the shortest was two hours. Keep your eyes open.
Have you ever wondered what those sirens you heard in the middle of the night were all about? Was there a fire? Was there a crime? You might own a police scanner which would give you the answers. But if you don't the information is still likely available through a police blotter.
Some law enforcement agencies have blotters available on their official web sites such as Everett Washington or Colorado Springs. The information includes the date, time and location of the incident. There is usually a summary of what occurred. And then the final outcome such as an arrest. In Iowa City, Iowa the arrest blotter even includes the address of the person arrested and the charges.
Another source for police or arrest blotters are the local newspapers. The Bee News out of Williamsville, New York has a police blotter available on line. The Los Angeles Times has an extensive police blotter that includes not only those calls for services in Los Angeles proper, but the outlying smaller cities and towns as well, such as Brea or Irvine. The Northbrook Star out of the Chicago area has an arrest blotter that is listed by category of crime rather than chronological.
So much information with so many avenues to search. Many of the website also offer archives for those seeking information in the past Regardless of whether you want to know what happened in your community last week or last month, it's available to you on the Internet.
