On the run and got caught, how did they do it? Should he now be freed?

This is a story that I thought some of you might find interesting. It's been reported that an eighty one (81) year old man was re-arrested after escaping from a Maryland prison 43 years ago. He served only about 10 years of an original 40 year term before he escaped. His method of escape was unknown. He escaped in 1965.

Apparently this past February, Maryland's Governor sign legislation ordering the "clearing" of past warrants of fugitives and wanted people in Maryland. Apparently police officers were able to locate him and the Governor signed the extradition papers allowing him to return back to Maryland.

The man's attorney is very upset with the fact that police didn't allow him a chance to get a change of clothing nor was he allowed to bring his medicines. I'll keep you posted as to whether the Govenor release the man or if he will have to serve the remaining 30 years.

My take:

This story garnered my interest as I was a fugitive for 22 years, as many of you know. Apparently the elderly man did something I never did, use his real name, social security numbers, actual date of birth, etc.  I imagine he thought he got away with everything after soo many years. In my case though, I surrendered after two decades. I wish he would have done the same because this would have help him secure an earlier release later or quite possibly exonerated of the crime (a pardon from the Govenor).  But I must tell you, the arresting officer receives credit for this arrest and will probably receive an award, etc. That's one arrest credit I wouldn't be proud of!

 I must be honest to say that I have an issue with not allowing him to take along his medicines. What harm could this have done? And I must admit something else, even though  I would be clearly wrong:  If I was the officer sent to investigate his whereabouts, I would have reported back that I couldn't locate him!  I know, I know, but I just couldn't do it to an eighty one year old sick man!  I'm a hypocrite in this case!
