Thank God for the citizen that saw the inmate hop the fence, before he had gotten to far. If nobody saw him who knows how far he would have gone. Way to go!!!!!!!!

One would think if you were going to escape you would have a plan and keep going not stop and smell the flowers in the nearby park.!?!? I mean I'm surprised that they just didn't go to McDonald's for a burger and then go home to his house.!!! He actually got away and then got caught. he'll do 10 years now. duh!!!

More shootings in Hartford. The place is a toxic land dump and the courant decides to silence the masses. What happened, did Crooked Eddie threaten to take away the courant parking garage?

Actually God cleared the way for him to get away, having spoken to the girlfriend via prayer and dreams to set it all up. He told me so.

Notice also, how they won't open a forum on the artical about the police asking of immigration status .... they KNOW how the public feels about this and they don't have the gonads to put up a forum or the stomache to read the unfavorable posts

Hartford Police Chief Daryl K. Roberts said in a release Monday that the department "will not rest until we get the guns out of the hands of these violent and reckless individuals who resort to gun violence to resolve disputes

If they took away the guns, they would use knifes. Its the scum, not the guns.

The Courant's choice to not allow readers to comment on the daily violence in Hartford or Cotto's crackpot scheme to destroy what little is left in Hartford is telling. It tells me that the Courant is aware of the publics' opinion and can't deal with it. It tells me the Courant is further in the pockets of the politicians and unions than even I thought. It tells me the Courant has lost all credibility as a service to and servant of it's readership. And it tells me the Courant doesn't give a damn about itself, it's future or it's monotone approach to news. As the city of Hartford falls furteher into a black hole, the Courant will be sucked under with it.

This escape never would've happened had the federal correctional institution not retracted picnic rights for all inmates. I blame the system for this travesty!

How do comments regarding a story about one who escapes from prison turn into various comments about hartford, its mayor and dying teens?
It baffles me that no one dared to comment about the Glastonbury teen who threatened his neighbor with a gun and posted his $150,000 bond...
Is the Courant's comment section really used for racism and hate as many (including the hartford mayor) think?
I thought better and higher of the Courant's readers...and commentors.

If people would have kept their racial comments to themselves maybe it would not have been removed. omments
