So I was checking some stats on the FBI site about the ten most wanted list and I noticed we have just as many captures halfway through 2016 that were achieved in 2013 and 2014's 12 month cycle which is a grand total of 3 captures.
Now on this date June 1st in 2013 the FBI had captured Eric Toth and Edwin Rivera-Gracias so far, while in 2014 only Juan Elias Garcia was captured on that date and now in 2016 Myloh Jaqory Mason, Brenda Delgado and Philip Policarpio have been captured so far this year.
So now we are somewhat halfway through 2016 and we have 3 captures already, faster than the last 2 active years and the obvious reason for this is adding recent cases on to the list in order to bring quick captures and the removal of long timers that see no future in being caught.
Now I don't want to jinx it but just showing how successful the list has been this year and how this may be the best year this decade for the list.
We still have a long way to go, but sometimes it's not how many captures but WHO gets captured. For example, 2011 saw both Osama Bin Laden and Whitey Bulger go down. They might have been the only two captures that year but holy crap were those huge captures.
The list is skewing more recent this year so it does mean a greater chance for captures compared to previous years.

I don't think this will be the best year but it will better then years past as they add more recent fugitives and ones who have a chance of being caught instead of folks who have been on the run for decades or are in places where there is no hope of them being caught.

Yes I actually agree it's going better than past years for sure since we've only had recent cases, but on to what Scumhunter said, the capture of Bulger and the killing of Osama was huge for the list, which leads me to think of any of the fugitives added before 2015 were to be captured, Victor Gerena being handed back to U.S. Authorities and Yaser Said making a bad mistake would be huge for the list and they seem the most likely to be caught which is why I used them as an example.
The list going in a somewhat new direction is why this year has been better than other years since like we stated there are more recent cases added and even long time yet easy to catch additions like Yaser Said and Luis Macedo give the list more chances of captures.

Okay so we are currently sitting at 5 captures tying with 2006. The FBI can squeeze in a capture or 2 before Dec 31st, but regardless we'll end the year on a good note. Also if we do have a capture it'll be a better capture year in a decade

I still say it will be impossible for anything this century to top 2011 despite only two captures because of Bin Laden's capture/killing and to some extent Bulger's capture as well. As I said it's not the amount of captures but who gets captured. There could be 10 captures in one year but they're all Myloh Masons. Taking nothing away from the seriousness of his crimes, thank goodness no one was killed in them.
I do agree with you that 2016 is one of the best years in recent memory (besides 2011) though, perhaps it is already the best year this century besides 2011, but we just need one more pre-2015 capture to make it official.
