Police and prosecutors have secretly decided to allow more than 186,000 accused felons to escape justice simply by crossing state lines. With no one chasing them, those unwanted fugitives have gone on to rape, kidnap, rob banks and kill, often as close as in the state next door. Those decisions, almost always made in secret, allow fugitives to go free across the United States, leaving their crimes unpunished, their victims outraged, and the public at risk.
