Well, the one with the cross tattood between his eyes shouldn't be too hard to identify. He must be quite religious. Perhaps SCDC should start checking local spots of worship.

They did not escape, they just left SCDC property to have a cigarette. That smoking ban has been in effect for 2 weeks.

SCDC-What are you all doing-sleeping on the job or trying to sleep with inmates-you apparently are not doing your job-it is so easy to escape there-get off your butt and patrol the inmates-they had a plan and had time to escape and also no one even saw them outside-ridiculous

I guess the one that was caught just wanted to get out to get some fresh air.LOL LOL

I hope they get that murderer quick. He got that cross on his forehead and should be easy to spot unless he wearing a scarf or hat on his head. I don't get it, why are these criminals working in the prisons without shackles on them?

It looks like they had a plan that
work to get out of jail. They went separate ways. The one that's still running had a more extensive plan with possible a driver.

He may have went into the woods or may be in a empty apartment or rented apartment holding someone hostage near the prison.

He will be looking to car jack somebody today or later in the
week.

I want a 15 mile perimeter from the prison. I want every house ,apartment , resturant , truck stop, store , trailer park, bathroom , shed,and fox hole look in ASAP.

I want every officer available and unavailable to be looking for this
murderer/escapee with a cross between his eyes.
He must be caught and he must not make America Most Wanted.

I want a cash reward set up in case
any broke person is assisting this fugitive.

Way to go BroadRiver Correctional. Darn bad when you can't keep your prisoners behind bars. This needs an internal check. These guys had too much FREE TIME!
Where was the supervision and countdown of inmates. What a shame.
Oh please

This is exactly why I believe in the death penalty. If he were dead, then he wouldn't be roaming the streets of our neighborhoods looking for his next victim!

I have heard bleeding heart liberals say that it is "cruel and unusual punishment" for criminals to be on chain gangs -- being forced to work on roadsides (while shackled) in any type of weather -- and also to be shackled while in the prison yards. It's also cruel and unusual punishment to be in "overcrowded" cells.

THAT'S why so many more new prisons are being built -- so each one of these pieces of scum can have their own private room. It seems that prisoners have many more rights than law abiding citizens.

He must have escaped because he didn't like his living situation. I bet he had a "roommate" he didn't get along with.

I hope they catch this piece of scum ASAP! It's not like he won't be easy to spot with that tattoo on his forehead.

Great way to be inconspicuous, Einstein!

"" Officials found a ladder on the interior fence, and also found blood on the fence and ground. ""
Wow, that is very interesting, that inmates can just walk around with ladders and climb up fences and no one sees them.

Officials say this is a maximum security prison, but I don't think so; there are too many escapes from this prison. More security is definitly needed.
