Escaped capital murder suspect makes a mistake

MississippiBoyMississippiBoy Senior MemberPosts: 819 Senior Member
Synopsis: A murder suspect escapes from prison on March 2 by overpowering a guard and taking his uniform. Then this morning, he accosts a man in Vicksburg getting into his car, takes him back in the house, ties him and his wife up, and stabs him. The homeowner manages to free himself and his wife, and then (I love this part.....) they BOTH ventilate the escapee, who is now room temperature. :iwo:
Thankfully, the man only had minor injuries, while his wife and child were unharmed.

    If people working in prison would follow policy, escapes would be rare indeed.

    The homeowner should get a sizable reward. After all, he just saved the taxpayers MILLIONS.

    From the article in the OP
    The reward for information on McCloud was $26,000
    I believe calling 911 and telling them, "the guy's laying on my floor bleeding" SHOULD qualify as "information" :tooth:

    So they should at least get that $26K (and the gratitude of the state and clean up of the mess the scum-bag made on the floor [new carpet maybe???])

    Exactly what I was thinking. You can't get much more specific information than "He's dead on my living room floor. Y'all come get him before he ruins the carpet in the den, too."

    Prison should pay for the hospital bills, cleanup, and a little extra thrown in for saving them the bed space

    Agree with all above. The scum bag was wasting good air. These people should get a very nice reward. The prison should pay for the carpet cleaning, and they should give the couple some compensation for their mental anguish andxinjuries. And they should set them up with an annuity for life for saving the state and tax payers money.

    Well, with my medical background, I'm not allowed to pronounce someone "dead" except for a few specific situations.

    "Officer we were shooting to stop him from hurting us, sucks for him that he died" :devil:

    Oh anybody can pronounce somebody dead! May not be official, but people get the idy. I know because I saw the Late Great Richard Pryor do it. He said and I quote, "Da M....%#&@ Dade!"

    I pronounced em dead in the E.R. often enough, time of death, 1800 hrs, pupils fixed and dialated, discontinue resuscitation.

    As I worked as an EMT, we couldn't pronounce anyone dead. Had to be done by a MD. Although that's a moot point. Nor if we started resuscitation, could we stop resuscitation unless ordered by an MD. (Or a coroner.)

    Yes. I know of one who put on a white lab coat over prison orange and walked out Main Gate with a handmade fake ID. Main Gate officer never questioned him. If policies and procedures are followed, and maintenance gets things repaired fast, (see how many ignored maintenance issues helped the Kingman escape a few years ago), plus the money to keep us staffed AND repaired, yep, escapes would be rare indeed. Sometimes it's Admin, like the one where a single officer was sent on a hospital escort, IM in a wheelchair. Turns out he'd been faking it for 3 years, overpowered the officer and killed him with his issued sidearm. The escapee was then captured by, no kidding, a fast food restaurant manager.
    You certainly could sue the system for the escape, but good luck on that one - don't forget the huge number of private prisons around now, with closed books and no oversight, (like Kingman), that are in the business of inmates for profit. The LOVE cutting corners in the name of profit.

    Yep being in prison sucks doesn't matter if you wear orange or blue, either way your still locked up.

    Always hated prisons and having to surrender my sidearm and shield / ID etc... getting out again, priceless.

    You are correct. We had one turd letting the con call his family from the hospital room. They would always tell us "security comes first" but in reality the whims of the LT or Sgt. comes first. Funniest day I recall, I was the seg officer and policy stated NO offender was to be allowed out of a cell with being cuffed. We had a SGT that always ignored things like this. One day he went in (I was off) opened up a cell without restraining the con, and BLAM! Got his butt whipped. One stupid sob, because that was the second time that had happened to him and he still wasn't fired.

    Yeah, but after about 20-30 minutes even two people can get pretty winded, so what if you get real slow? hehehe! Like I said just whisper out the side of ya mouth "In my opinion, Da boy be dade!!!"

    Yeah, like that ding bat woman in the prison in New York that was having an affair with one of the scumbags and furnished them with stuff to make their escape. They need to lock that ugly &$%^@ up and throw away the key. Too bad that one died because making woopie with her shoulda been punishment enough for anybody.

    I made the mistake of calling someone on the radio once. The medic arrived and said that couldn't be done unless a strip was ran. Our reply, sure, we will round up all the pieces for you.

    Where I worked we had women that would get it on with the convicts. Most of them were older. I can't understand how a 50+ something fat woman can swoon all over herself when a convict tells her how good looking she is. I mean she looks in the mirror right?

    Yep. It's pretty amazing, the things people can convince themselves of.
