|Richard Matt and David Sweat managed to breakout of the iron college. Clinton Correctional is one of the toughest iron colleges. The law vows their escape will be short lived.|
The conservatives will certainly find some blame in this. They will immediately blame Democratic governor Andrew Cuomo and Bill de Blasio for two dangerous inmates escaping from the iron college. They actually had the audacity to leave a smiley face underneath their bed sheets.
Conservatives are often concern trolls when it comes to criminal behavior. They automatically blame liberal governors and softies on not establishing the death penalty.
New York is one of the states that has no death penalty.
Say if this was in Florida, Texas, Oklahoma, California and Ohio?
This is the word vomit of the "would haves". They like to make accusations of liberal policies leading to criminal violence.
The feds and state patrol are searching for the two. These two men had LIFE in the iron college. One killed a deputy and another killed his former boss and dismembered the body. Now escaping from the iron college will net state charges. But since the feds are involved in this, expect this to be a federal charge.
These two had inside help. And of course, the warden will interview all the employees. Clinton Correctional is one of the country's most toughest iron colleges. It's maximum and it was one of the very few iron colleges that interns have a rare chance to escape.
Who the hell gave them power tools?
Who was responsible for bed check?
How did they figure out the layout?
Two words: Corrupt worker!
So now there's a nationwide BOLO on Richard Matt and David Sweat. These men are considered armed and dangerous. The law also warned those who aid in their escape will be charged as well.
They will automatically go to federal time out. They will head to a Supermax if they are apprehended. If they are willing to go out like that, the feds and state will plug them with lead.
CNN got something to talk about. They told tales of their daring escape. Something out of a movie, right?
Richard Matt, 48, and David Sweat, 34, were discovered missing at the 5:30 a.m. "standing count" of inmates at the Clinton Correctional Facility in Dannemora, New York State Police said on the agency's Facebook page.
An intense manhunt was underway with more than 200 law enforcement officers looking for the men -- the first to escape from the maximum security portion of the prison, Gov. Andrew Cuomo said at a press conference.

The prisoners apparently were last seen at 10:30 p.m. Friday during a standing count, authorities said.
Head counts are performed every two hours throughout the night when guards visually check to see whether inmates are in their bunks, Clinton Correctional Facility Supervisor Steven Racette said.
Matt and Sweat tricked the guards by arranging things in the bunks to look "like people were sleeping ... with these sweatshirt hoodies on," the governor said. The inmates were discovered missing at the 5:30 a.m. inmate count.
The men had side-by-side cells and apparently had obtained power tools to cut through the steel wall in their cells, authorities said.
The escapees followed a catwalk "down an elaborate maze of pipes into tunnels and exited a series of tunnels at the manhole cover," Cuomo said.
|Democratic governor Andrew Cuomo is pissed. The prison warden and governor actually walked through the escape route.|
"It was elaborate, it was sophisticated," he said. "It involved drilling through steel walls, steel pipes."
Authorities don't know how the prisoners got the power tools. Clinton Correctional Facility was built in 1845 and undergoes regular maintenance, so it's possible the tools came from the contractors and workmen who are often inside the facility, Cuomo said.
Sweat was serving life without parole after being convicted first-degree murder in the death of a Broome County sheriff's deputy on July 4, 2002, state police said.
Matt is serving 25 years to life. He was convicted on three counts of murder, three counts of kidnapping and two counts of robbery after he kidnapped a man and beat him to death in December 1997, the state police said.
The prison in the northeast corner of New York is the state's largest iron college with a population of 2,689 inmates, the corrections department said.
