US Marshals have tracked down man they were looking for at Dodgers game -- but that's not enough to nab fugitive

quote [ Marshals Deputy Pat Valdenor met with the man and his family in a Los Angeles suburb and fingerprinted him to confirm his identity, Danielle Shimchick, deputy US marshal, confirmed to CNN.

Through that process, Valdenor was able to clearly see the difference between Ruffo's fingerprints and the man at the Dodgers game. A birth certificate also separated the two men. ]

I'm gonna type that again - "met with the man and his family in a Los Angeles suburb and fingerprinted him to confirm his identity. A birth certificate also separated the two men."

What the ever loving fuck? A grainy picture and an anonymous source on a phone call, and the cops storm his house and demand he prove who he is?

Didn't know whether to tag it as this, or dystopian violence. The U.S. is fucked.
