Seattle P-I Publishes Photographs

The Seattle Post-Intelligencer published numerous photos today of people who are suspected of crime. But, the photos of the terrorist suspects are still taboo.

Deputy U.S. marshals, state troopers and Seattle police put on their bulletproof vests as they prepared to hit a Renton home. Inside, they expected to find a 37-year-old man wanted for child molestation.

Moments later, the officers emerged, looking disappointed. The fugitive wasn't there.

The Friday raid didn't resemble a Hollywood movie. The Pacific Northwest Fugitive Apprehension Task Force doesn't always get its man. But judging by the results of last week's fugitive sweep, dubbed Operation Falcon, they usually do.
