Writing your own "get out of jail" card.

Postby rabble » Fri Oct 18, 2013 8:40 pm

I haven't heard of this sort of thing before.

Forged documents made their way through a courthouse, out to the prison, and got convicted killers released. The system found out about it because it's protocol to notify the families when a victim's killer is released and one member called to ask what was going on.

And then the guys go register as felons a few days later, apparently to keep up appearances.

Does this happen much?

I've heard of cases where someone with a long jail term ahead of them exchanges bracelets with someone getting released the next day, but this is many degrees more elaborate.

I wonder if the guys expect to remain free, or just have "unfinished business" to take care of before they eventually get caught.

A spokesman for the escaped prisoners said they would return right after they sign up for Obamacare.

that sure beats my ace in the hole, viz, having an army of cake bakers in the community who own extra saw blades and such . . .

i keep waiting to read about bernie madoff breaking out of prison with a gun carved out of soap or a washboard slat and coloured with shoe polish. imagine what that would do for shinola's stock the next day. they're still around: part of the cac-40 no less,
