    I'm glad when anyone manages to escape the US incarceration system, aka "hell on earth".

    US Federal "minimum security" jails are well known "cake walks", just like most European "minimum security" jails. Often the "inmates" can hold down jobs on the outside (returning to jail at night), get fed reasonably good food, and often even take weekends and more extended vacations with relatives.

    Oh yeah, US Federal "minimum security" is a tough game...

    Maybe in max, but in minimum, he will be sleeping on a bunk bed in a dormitory, with other white collar criminals, or criminals short to the gate. He isn't going to get raped, because that means the rapist is going to wind up getting a prison transfer to a real PMITA prison.

    Federal prisons are not the craptastic private state/local lockups. They are run by the BOP which tends to know what they are doing, because they have top tier funding compared to spotty state money.

    The escapee has gone from the frying pan to the fire. When he is recaptured (and Feds are instrumental in getting their man, as escapes make them look bad), he will not be escaping again... and likely get another ten years added to his sentence... which will be served in a medium to maximum security prison, and these "guests" are people who steal cars over state lines, or violent criminals. Life won't be in a quiet dorm. It will be in a two man cell, perhaps in a pod. He better be damn nice to his cellie unless he wants to sleep with one eye open for the rest of his sentence.

    Minimum security prisons no longer as nice as you claim them to be.

    Is that so? []

    Oooo, and look right there: LOMPOC is number 8 on the list...

    Given the perfect climate and time to spend outside, the bars are barely a bother as you plot your corporate comeback. Former home to Ivan Boesky and the Watergate guys, youâ(TM)ll be surrounded by a eucalyptus grove in a great wine region not far from Santa Barbara. Itâ(TM)s a pity the tennis courts were removed as a PR gesture to critics who felt guests at this luxury prison had it too easy, but (the good) life continues with the baseball field and volleyball courts.

    Oh, and this: "Former inmate's description of minimum security Federal prison: sex, drugs, and rock 'n roll..." []

    Yeah, "Real1/1" Federal minimum security is tough business.
