      Indeed, escape is a new offense, he will have to spend more time in prison in addition to completing his original sentence, and he will no longer be housed in a Club Fed. He'll be behind the razor wire now. Sucks to be him.

      They'll catch him no doubt pretty soon... unless this was coordinated with someone on the outside. If so, he could be far away by now. But they'll catch him eventually. As many people have pointed out recently in many posts on many topics, it's hard to remain anonymous and hide in plain sight these days.

        You know, it's really not.

        Quasi-legitimate identities are available to anyone with resources. Sure, your freedom run is dependent upon avoiding arrest & the entire fingerprinting process, leaving people/your old life completely behind, and beginning anew in Kalamazoo... but maybe you're not well-suited for prison and you figure you'd be giving all those luxuries up anyways.

        Probably. In the entire history of the Federal prison system, only about 10 people have escaped and were not eventually caught.

        He'd already served 3/4 of a 4-year sentence. Less than a year to go.

      Only in the US. In other jurisdictions every men's urge to be free is recognized and accordingly there are no additional sentences for prison breaks IF nobody gets hurt, bribed, and property doesn't get damaged.

        Wow. There are lots of things the US might get wrong, but this ain't one of them.

        Also, quoting from your link:

        In Mexico, for instance, escapees who do not break any other laws are not charged for anything and no extra time is added to their sentence; however, officers are allowed to shoot prisoners attempting to escape.

      • Canada can add a couple of years [wikibooks.org] to the sentence. As it should. In fact it should be able to add more for problem prisoners. If there is no consequence of an escape what is the incentive to serve one's sentence exhibiting good behaviour? Believe it or not, these are people you can't just sit down and have an 'adult conversation' with. They have already shown they have no respect for civilized society. I personally think flogging and other corporal punishment should be added back in to encourage good behavio

          I personally think that everyone should be forced to spent a meaningful amount of time incarcerated against their will, before they're allowed to form a meaningful opinion about how people who are incarcerated should be treated.

    The prison had such good spammer filtering in place that they couldn't even see him leave....

  • What ever you do, shoot to kill. He's probably armed and extremely dangerous and he said your mama's fat.

  • Why would he want to leave? Getting sent to Lompoc is my retirement plan.

  • I love it when spamming scum does something extraordinarily stupid. Good luck getting into a minimum security prison after this little stunt.

    OK, suppose he had been working with really bad people on the outside, e.g. the Russian mob. Let's say these people were angry with him and he got wind of an assassination brewing. So he flips on the bad people but then needs protection. So, the Feds fake a prison break and whisk hm away to witness protection. Or is that just too wacko?

    If he had been executed as he should have been we wouldn't have this problem. Death for spam, surely this sentence is the law in some country somewhere...
