Those don't really sound like heavy duty crimes, and they were from 11 years ago. Why was he hiding in a sewer now? Now if he had been down there all these years, that would be an interesting story.

What a waste of tax payer money. But it provides job security for the gov't. If it ain't broke, fix it till it is. lol. See what happens when certain people are into identity theft or carry two different sets of ID's? What a problem this is causing our country. When the article said they were " searching creeks" I knew we were in trouble. I knew long ago, you don't search creeks.

Why is this a waste of taxpayer money? They had info that he was a homicide suspect. The police went after him and he ran. What would you suggest the police do? Walk away? Aren't the police supposed to chase after criminals?
Why not search creeks? Afraid of getting a little wet, Tom?
They found their man, didn't they? Saved his life too. He would have died in the water.

I'm sure you won't be surprised to find out that there is more to this story than the media knows about.

I was down by the river and the road they found the guy at. I was told by a police officer that they were looking for a suspected homicide suspect that ran through the river, and that I should be on the look out. I was down there past the yellow tape they put up to block the road for 3 hours. They did a lot of standing and talking, they brought the dogs,and started to remove man hole covers to look for the guy. The guy defiantly did not want to be found those pipes are really small and hard to fit in.

Let's see...
Was the assumed name he was using the one that the Task Force was looking for on the Florida homicide? If so, yes there is irony in the world.

Just a hypothetical thought- let's say those overspending Goverment guys- as you put it (the FBI)- lets say they rec'd an investigative lead on a homocide suspect and went to where he was possibly working. Once there he takes off running as they approach him. So your saying the shouldnt have chased him? I know you have it all figured out, already like most know it alls, but dont you think its worth catching the guy?

the problem is with you know all types is that you make judgements on issues without knowing all the details and/or circumstances involved- you just rush to give your opinion because you think you have the answer to everthing. I think that misguided, BLOWHARD approach and attitude that too many people have nowdays- I think that is a major problem within our society- at least just as much as taxes and all the other repeated whines thad the know it all blowhards repeatedly make.

Hey Dog- did they cure you of turret's yet? Every good God fearing preacher should be like you- they need to prance around dressed up like some fancy boy doosh bag trailor trash that wants to be a professional rassler and make sure to bring all the inbreds with you. Then "mf" they guy as many times as possible before giving him a smoke and leading him to Jesus..........

WHO IN THE F watches that show? It's like a soap opera with a bunch of guys running around with fire extenghusiers with mace. They need to outlaw "bounty hunting"
