6 year old fugitive.

The family of the highest profile fugitive ever apprehended by the Clinton administration, Elian Gonzalez, is suing various agencies for their hand in the forced entry and extraction of the 6-year old.
MIAMI, Florida (CNN) -- The Miami relatives of Elian Gonzalez are suing Attorney General Janet Reno, the city of Miami and several other parties over the seizure of the young boy from their home.

Elian was the subject of an international custody battle after he was found floating on an innertube in the waters off the Florida coast last November. His mother and 10 others drowned when their boat capsized in an attempt to reach the United States. His father's relatives in Miami wanted the U.S. government to give the boy an asylum hearing, but his father wanted him to return to Cuba.
Janet Reno wasn't satisfied that Elian had been traumatized enough. After being comforted and taken in by his loving family in Miami, Janet made sure the little boy was forcibly removed from the loving family that took him in, shoved into a black van by armed stangers and shipped back to communists.

The only upside to the Reno-lead forced entry into the Gonzales home is the entry teams didn't burn the place down and kill multiple children, like they did under her direction at the Branch Dividian compound in Waco, Texas.
