Re: Fleeing an Felony Arrest Warrant
The real issue is cost and effort.
If there was no cost and effort in retrieving a felon from another state, your friends would have been going home - assuming, as stated above, that the records of their crimes had been entered correctly and gone national.
However, there is a cost and effort... we can't say if or when some DA with an expanded budget and an election year approaching will start a "bring em back dead or alive" policy, but it has happened before.
Basically, you are hoping that the state that wants you continues to not want you bad enough to find you.
That would be a poor way to live, I would think.
All you need in this life is ignorance and confidence; then success is sure.
