Texas Top 10 Most Wanted Fugitives

Texas Dept. of Public Safety, July 19, 2011

[Editor’s Note: Judging by the race labels, one would assume that 7 out of 10 “Top Fugitives” in Texas are white. The pictures and names tell a different story. Among the “whites” are Gaspar Loya, Javier Morin, Ernesto Alonso Garcia, Robert Barrera, Alfonso Gomez Quiroz, and Ricardo Zunigo. Mr. Zunigo is affiliated with the gang “Barrio Azteca,” an unusual accomplishment for a “white.” It is not as though there was no “Hispanic” category. About the “whitest” looking of the ten is actually called “Hispanic.” These botched descriptions unquestionably skew crime statistics.]
