Summary For years in many states "fugitives have been let go by police, only to victimize more people. Between crimes, fugitives have used their real identities to get new drivers licenses in new states. Some have registered with police as sex offenders and still avoided arrest...The lapses mean hundreds of thousands of felony fugitives can run - and they don't need to hide."
