I don’t know if you’ve seen this or not, but here in Texas we
recently had a death row inmate escape from a jail in Houston. He
had a friend pretend to be his lawyer and swap clothes with him so that
he could bluff his way out of the jail. He flees to the next
state over, Louisana, where he proceeds to get drunk and get arrested
at a liquor store. When the police arrived at the store,
he starts bragging about his identity.
Now, first off, how did you find someone stupid enough to swap
clothes with you? Surely you have know if you’re sitting there in
his orange jumpsuit, while he makes his escape, you CANNOT be far off
from obtaining one of your very own. I’m thinking
that the friend had a DOH! moment about the time the
guards showed up to return this in-duh-vidual to his cell.
Secondly, how smart can you be to only flee about 2 hours away
before getting sopping drunk and bragging about how you’ve just escaped
from prison? I suspect that his DOH! moment waited until he
sobered up and realized that he’s back in custody.
Thirdly, doesn’t anyone scan the exit doors? Casinos hire
people to watch the entrances and exits, scanning for
“undesirables”. If a casino can do this, why not a prison?
I’m thinking that the guards had a DOH! moment when they realized that
they’d waved this goofus past them.
The really sad part is that this person is obviously not all that bright and he outsmarted the prison system. DOH!
