Security: LACKING!

May 28, 2012 at 9:40 PM (current news, human life issues, legal issues, social opinion, web gossip)

It is disturbing, yet funny, while pathetic, all at once!  You read about things like this, then wonder about how it all could have happened.  Yet, it all adds to the general vibe that keeps the nation’s pulse going!

Very early this morning, The Miller County Jail of Texarkana, Arkansas had a breach.  The supposedly secured facility found that two of it’s captives were able to escape at some point during last night.  One twenty-three year-old man named Cortez Hooper, and one thirty-six year-old man named Quincy Stewart got loose from the penal facility.  They used a hacksaw to cut the bars, they got hold of two mattresses, then they broke a window.  The mattress was thrown to the ground below, onto which Cortez and Quincy lept to escape the building!

Now, police and area officials have a manhunt active.  They posted details about the men’s appearances, and details about the crimes of which they are guilty.  Both of them actually are killing suspects!  Hooper as he has been charged with aggravated assault, along with first-degree murder!  Stewart faces the charges of possession of a controlled substance and capital murder!

It was shortly after 4:00 a.m. this morning when both inmates were announced as missing.  The authorities have no answers to how these men were able to escape the  razor-laced wire that tops the facility’s ten-feet high border fences without being seen.  They can not say how these men got hold of the hacksaw that they used to cut the wires, or how they were able to keep it without being noticed by guards.  Security breach; ya think???

The facility guards searched the perimeter of the jail shortly after the escape was announced.  Canine assistance was used to try getting a trace of the mens’ scents.  That method was ineffective, as both escapees reamin on the loose, with no leads to their current locations.  Both men are little guys, as Hooper is five-feet tall, weighing 130 pounds.  Stewart is five-feet, seven inches, and around 170 pounds.

Both men are murder suspects, so it is not known as to whether or not they actually killed anyone.  There likely are postings that display any other criminal history that either of the men has within Arkansas, or within surrounding areas.  As for their escape, Miller County Jail only has a video recording of Hooper and Stewart running outside of the fences!  Run, Forrest!!!
