These seven criminals are considered armed and dangerous by the NY Federal Bureau of Investigation. They have evaded capture for years, really decades. Interestingly, more than half are wanted for air piracy, basically hijacking a plane. Many have evaded capture by fleeing to other countries and living in hiding.
