Why would you escape from a "pre-release" center? He just added 5-10 on his sentence.

Might be true...sometimes inmates will sabotage their parole or release because they have a better life on the inside than outside ( as crazy as that might sound)...who knows what he was thinking?

You're right, Outfield Jack. I use to work for the Dept. of Corrections a hundred yers ago and I believe (back then) it may have added another 2 - 5 years to their sentence. Someone else wrote that some inmates actually DO have it better in the pen than out in the real world. He is also correct. I saw repeat inmates who said that themselves, and would go out upon release and intententially commit another (relatively insignificant) crime just so they could "come home". Baffling and sad, but true. If neither of these is the case with this pre-release guy, then he is just simply a real dumba$$!!!

The Dept. of Corrections WOULD have let him go to the funeral, albeit in belly chains and leg irons and of course with an officer escorting. He made an emotionally charged knee jerk decision that just bought him many MORE years away from his loved ones. Sad situation, but you can bet he knew their policy and chose to run off anyway. Too bad.
