50 Most Wanted Criminals in the United States

Title Image

Over the past few years the primary focus of FBI and CIA investigations has shifted away from domestic criminal behavior and more towards capturing and eliminating terrorism. So, while mobsters, gang leaders and serial killers are always included in any “Most Wanted” list, what’s changed are the number of terrorists (both Muslim extremists, cyber-terrorists, and hackers) on the list. But the bottom line remains, as stated by the FBI: at the heart of their operations (and we quote) is “To protect and defend the United States against terrorist and foreign intelligence threats and to enforce the criminal laws of the United States.”

If you go to any FBI website, you’ll see their priority “wanted” list divided into two categories National Security Priorities (terrorism, counter intelligence, cybercrimes), and criminal priorities (public corruption, civil rights, organized crime, white collar and violent crimes). We’ve done a bit of the same thing here. The list that follows has been divided into three sections, violent crimes, terrorism and cyber terrorism. It is not arbitrary, even though the FBI no longer lists one criminal as being more wanted than another. We’ve listed them based on the FBI and other USA most wanted lists averaged them out and listed them in an order of our own device.

One more thing. If you know anything about any of these individuals. Call your local FBI office or nearest state police barracks immediately.
