Since he was likely just being detained awaiting deportation, there is probably not a picture of him. At least there is no evidence he has ever done anything more violent than cross a border without paperwork. Still dangerous to have a desperate someone who knows they will be detained if caught out in the community.

Not surprised,
And you call someone else a racist.
A in poor taste remark doesn't make
someone a racist.
It just shows what you are.

If i saw him and knew who he was (which I don't) I would not say one word to anyone and hope he makes it back to Mexico ok.

Sadly, this post won't deter people from posting racist material. Just because it is posted doesn't mean it has to affect the reader negatively. He doesn't appear to be incarcerated for violent actions which makes me feel safer. When I first read "federal prisoner" I was thinking interstate trafficking or violent criminal behavior.

That shows how much these detention officers look around the place to check if there isnt escape routes in the prison. Deming is no safe haven like it claims to be.... Hope he dont get catched good luck

It doesn't matter what race the escapees are when you are getting your throat cut or brains bashed. What shnuld matter is how they escaped to begin with and why the detention center seems to have so many problems. The leadership in this county needs to seriously investigate why this county, as a whole has so many issues. Perhaps they might start by looking in the mirror.

To see a picture of him, click here----> http://www.koat.com/news/27583501/detail.html

Also, I heard he does have a dangerous criminal past. Why it hasn't been shared with the community as a whole, I don't know.

Vampires do not have reflections so the mirror thing won't help in this case.

I think the previous statement made by me could have been based off of bad info. Maybe he is simply a border crosser awaiting deportation. I don't want to call someone violent without further proof.

the news on the radio said that it was confirmed that he was from palomas. most people from palomas that come over have papers to do so legally, the others are smugglng drugs through the desert.

At first i really thought john krehbiel could do his job but now i'm
sure he's not capable of keeping it safe. He knows he is short handed has been told that by his officers and all he does is ignore the problem. he hired unexperience young kids from what i hear. is he waiting for something to happen to his officers next? If this prisoners took the chance of escaping what makes you think that they would have done something to this officers to get away. Leonel you too do something.....dont just sit and do nothing or are you there just to pass time...

come on, how hard can it be to 'count'? do the bigwigs at this place just let out random numbers of prisoners at any given day? it's not about hiring young inexperienced people, it's about hiring incompetent and illiterate people. come on john, if these idiot guards can only count to three, then let the idiot guards only have three prisoners and under.
why did it take soooo long to realize that not everyone is accounted for? oh and another thing, get your guys and girls in some kind of shape other than round. some of these idiots need to hit the oxygen just walking from the parking lot to the front door.
