    ‘If I was a rapist or a murderer, they’d let me out’

    Obviously his escape attempts are all almost genius, but check out this line


    "Perhaps the most extraordinary was when he memorised a key hanging on a guards belt and was able to replicate it in his cell."

    My hats off to him.... and hopefully to be released one day

    Looks like an interwsting documentary about an interwsting story

    Hardly a hero, more like an idiot. Initial sentence of 4 years but he acts up, makes escape attempts and it just keeps adding up.

    Instead he could have taken a bit of a look at himself, behaved, appealed and probably would have been parolled with only 2 years served.

    Given a couple of years with nothing to do, there's so much you could do to improve yourself. I can't imagine that prison time is a picnic, but it doesn't need to entirely be wasted time as well.

    hmm, turning a 4 year sentence into 105 year sentence is hardly hero worthy.. The prison guards may be idiots, but would you want to waste your whole life proving a point like that?

    Just because you can do something doesn't mean you should...

    He's probably institutionalised now and doesn't want a life on the outside so makes these attempts to lengthen his term. Once he's escaped I imagine you'd be able to make yourself disappear fairly easily should you want to. My theory at least.
