181 Md. fugitives arrested in Operation Violence Reduction Seven

U.S. marshals rounded up 7,127 fugitives in Operation Violence Reduction Seven that took place in seven cities, including some in Maryland.

The marshals arrested the assailants between March 2 and April 10. Investigators focused on fugitives with three or more prior felony arrests for violent crimes, narcotics and weapons offenses.

"We focused on murder, attempted murder, manslaughter, robbery, aggravated assault, arson, abduction, kidnapping, sexual assault and child molestation," U.S. Marshals Service spokesman David Lutz said.

In Maryland, the task force worked with state and local police to apprehend 181 fugitives in Baltimore, Hagerstown and Salisbury. They arrested 50 people for assault, 21 for homicide, 39 for narcotics and 54 for robbery, eight for weapons offenses, four for sex assault, one for sexual offense and one for arson.

Thank you Governor Hogan for getting these thugs off the skreetz. Obama and O'Malley wouldn't have even tried.

Now THIS is a worthwhile expenditure of police resources. But it costs money. A lot of it.

There's no financial return on investment, tracking down, arresting and hauling in these dirtbags. Not unless somebody's Baggie of weed is found, and everything they own confiscated as "forfeiture".

That's why the overzealous enforcement of revenue and fine-producing activities.

Not that I am in favor of this ongoing, co-ordinated shakedown of the common citizenry under the guise of "safety". But where else is thè funding going to come from, when our taxes are already too high?

Any LE activity is an expense. Nothing they do is for profit.
