FBI’s Ten Most Wanted: See the fugitives still at large as agency celebrates 65 years of posting bounties

It began almost by chance.

In 1949, a reporter with the International News Service (the predecessor to United Press International) approached the Federal Bureau of Investigation and inquired about writing a story on the “toughest guys” currently being sought by agents.

I love this stuff.

    I love this kind of stuff too. When I was a young boy growing up in the U.S., I would walk into our small town post office, and stare at the FBI wanted posters. The black and white shots depicted tough looking, dangerous men. It was a lot for a kid to take in.

    On thing I noticed is that the politically-correct media (e.g., CBC News, the Globe and Mail) never show pictures of wanted criminals. That pictures of them, to be read by ordinary citizens, might actually HELP the police, means nothing to politically-correct media. They could hardly care about the actual catching of criminals.

    The other thing I notice is that it is the “pulp” media — the Sun News, Quebec tabloids) — will show photos of criminals on the loose. For these media, police catching the scumbags is a good thing. I love that.

    • Hell the Star won’t even tell you if the criminal is LGBTQ or somethin;)

      I just take it as a fact that if the Toronto media doesn’t give a description of the perp, there’s a 95% chance that they are black, or that they have the first name Moe.

    The current top ten is diverse, no surprise, and includes Egyptian piggyman Yaser Said who murdered his two daughters in Texas.
