Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Sunday, January 28, 2018

An inmate from Dallas was busted this week sneaking out of a federal prison in Beaumont to get snacks, alcohol, tobacco and cooked food to take back into the facility. Sheriff's deputies in Jefferson County learned recently that inmates were going out the back of the prison to neighboring land owned by a rancher and picking up contraband. ... At 7:30 p.m., an inmate left the prison grounds and picked up the bag. Deputies arrested the man -- identified as Joshua Randall Hansen, 27, of Dallas -- as he headed back to the prison. The sheriff's office said the bag contained a bottle of whiskey, three bottles of brandy, dozens of packages of tobacco, packaged snacks, fruit and "a large amount of home cooked food."

Although I understand the letter of the law. Does this guy deserve the FULL weight of an escape attempt. I don't think so. Maybe a .5 or .25 "escape". Is there such a thing? Opinions?

Prison may have been a better place to live than the trailer he was living in.

"Authorities said that inmates escaping temporarily to bring contraband into the prison is a recurring problem -- they've been walking off the grounds "pretty much since Day 1," sheriff's Deputy Marcus McLellan told the Beaumont Enterprise."

Sneaking out the back door? What kind of prison is this? In Texas no less.

"What kind of prison is this?"

A Club Fed without a liquor store or a restaurant apparently.

The prisons in Wisconsin have three levels, and if you're in one of the minimum-security facilities, and you mess up, you can go to "serious prison."

And the guards are still getting paid, still have their jobs? That's ridiculous.

The alcohol is the problem. He should get a slap on the wrist for the rest of it.

Hey, aborted DA.

Dallas Co. 2016

Straight ticket voting: R-36 to D-62%

Pres.: R-35 to D-61%

5 US Rep races: R-3 to D-2

Down ballot pretty much a D sweep.


Pretty much the same story for Houston, San Antonio, Austin and El Paso.

Stick to things you know something about, nothing.
