"I'm not no prison escapee"

Prison Escapee Convinces Cop He is Actually a Jogger

In this week's New Yorker, there is an article about Richard McNair. McNair may be America's most prolific escapee (bot state and federal). In fact, he is the first person to escape from a maximum security federal prison in thirteen years.

This escape occurred last April when he was being held at USP Pollock in Lousiana. McNair escaped from Pollock by configuring himself within a shrink-wrapped pallet of U.S. Postal Service mailbags that had been refurbished by the prison's inmates. McNair used a snorkel-like cardboard tube to breathe. After the truck that contained the pallet was beyond the fence of the prison, McNair broke through and began running.

Later that day, a local police officer who was on the lookout for McNair actually stopped him "jogging" parrallel to the town's railroad tracks.

The officer stopped McNair and began to question him. The dash-cam of the officer's car captured the "investigation." Needless to say, he talks himself out of arrest.

This is the funniest video I have ever seen. This is must see tv! I can't imagine this poor cop going back to his department after this.

This has to be the dumbest cop there is. Notice in the beginning the "jogger" gives his name as "Robert Jones" and then when asked again he is now "Jimmy Jones." That should have been the first sign. Also, who the hell jogs on railroad tracks and since when do roofers jog? I mean WTF!!

Hilarious I am glad to see the officers doing a good job. I dont think anyone missed the robert to jimmy jones. Maybe it was robert jimme jones...moron. I like to see that good ol boy tradition at work. Youcan bet your ass if he was a black escapee every black male in town would be rounded up.
