Australia’s CrimeNet ”is the world’s first site to provide a combined information service on criminal records, stolen property, missing persons, wanted persons, con artists and unsolved crimes”.

So many criminals, so little time.

”We have built up a database of thousands of mostly Australian criminal records with emphasis on records relating to fraud, paedophilia, s-x-related crimes and crimes of violence. New records are added daily.”

Like this timely inclusion. If you see Usama lurking at school pickup this afternoon and are tempted by the reward, remember he has a record for fairly unrestrained violence. Approach with caution.

Terrorist Usama Bin Laden – $25 million reward Usama Bin Laden is wanted in connection with the 7 August, 1998, bombings of the United States Embassies in Dar es Salaam, Tanzania and Nairobi, Kenya. He is believed to be in Afghanistan. United States armed forces and embassies throughout the world are currently on alert following information that a terrorist group associated with Usama bin Laden is preparing a major action against the United States.
