The world is a dangerous place, not because of those who do evil,
but because of those who look on and do nothing.

America's Most Wanted

Although the show already aired, I missed posting this previously and thought that in case any of you missed watching it tonight, you might like to catch a peek at what cases they highlighted.

Dan Hiers: Dan Hiers -- a former cop as well as an accused murderer and child molester -- is on the U.S. Marshals' 15 Most Wanted List, and John Walsh has added him to his Dirty Dozen list -- the notorious group of fugitives he wants to see taken off the streets the most. Cops say he killed his wife, stole her truck, and fled three years ago, and he hasn't been seen since.

Roy Hiatt: Cops say Roy Stephen Hyatt is a convicted sex offender on the run who still has an appetite for children. Police are looking for him on charges of downloading, possessing, and possibly distributing child pornography.

Dionne Garcia: After several years of hard work, the Chicago FBI's Joint Task Force on Gangs was able to indict 52 people in relation to the manufacture and distribution of PCP on the streets of the Windy City. Of all those indictments, only two people remain on the run. Agents say Dionne Garcia fled after being charged, probably with her common-law husband and their four children.

Jose Orlando Lopez: Jose Orlando Lopez has been deported twice for crimes committed in the U.S., and authorities still can't seem to get rid of him. They say Lopez has so little respect for this country that he raped a stranger on a busy street in New York. Police believe he's running from his latest charges from 2004 to prevent being deported, again.

Taizhi Cui: In October 2006, Los Angeles' Korean community was shocked by a triple murder that happened in their own backyard. Cops say the deaths were the work of a jilted lover hell-bent on getting revenge on an ex-girlfriend and her new paramour. However, authorities are still looking for the man they say pulled the trigger ... Taizhi Cui.

Kenneth Cofer: The fugitive task force in Oklahoma City hasn't forgotten about Kenneth Cofer -- and neither have we. Despite confusion about numerous look-alikes, Cofer is still a free man.

Edmundo Cerda-Anima: The manhunt for accused killer Edmundo Cerda-Anima has led agents south of the border. Investigators believe the former Hurricane Katrina contractor may be going back and forth between the U.S. and Mexico -- and if he's caught, he'll have to answer for a lot more than crossing the border.

William Plemons: Police say William Plemons has a reputation as a real romantic ... that is, until you get to know him better. Plemons carried on a series of pen pal relationships from behind bars -- but according to authorities, he was more interested in money than love. When one woman threatened to unravel his alleged scheme, police say Plemons turned from Casanova ... to killer.

Daniel San Diego: We’re looking back at the case of Daniel San Diego, accused of using violence to advance his own radical agenda. Law enforcement sources tell AMW he portrays himself as an animal lover and an activist, but the FBI says San Diego is a cold-blooded domestic terrorist -- and they need your help to apprehend him.

Giovanni Gonzalez: Police have discovered incriminating evidence against the father of missing 5-year-old Giovanni Gonzalez. Inside Ernesto Gonzalez' apartment, Massachusetts State Police say they found what appeared to be blood-stained objects -- including a mop that was apparently stained with blood and cleaned with bleach.
