And they didn't try to throw them at the jail guards to make a break for it ?!
I guess those Jack Chic comics in prison really are making the inmates passive pusilanimous pussycats.

Well, I doubt that the "hardened criminals" were the ones on a Road Crew. Just doin' their time and looking forward to getting out. 'Cept Rocco and Bruiser, of course.

I would guess that if they were allowed out to pick trash they weren't exactly hardened criminals. Probably drug possession, DUI, etc. minimum/medium security inmates. In other words, people with a lot more to gain by "good behaviour" than by lobbing hand grenades.

At least they're not throwing them at lions.

And they're all in prison because tehy're public defender forgot to play the race card.
2002-01-30 10:28:50 AM  
I don't see the issue - I throw all of my unused hand grenades out on the highway.

Putnam County Sheriff's Office Capt. Keith Riddick said. "Had it gone off, it could have caused loss of life." and a loud noise!
2002-01-30 10:34:02 AM  
Huh. So that's where I left them.

What is the deal with Florida? My God, over 200 years of blissful nothingness comes out of Florida (with the exception of Mickey Mouse, Miami Sound Machine, and that pastel-colored crap from the 80's), and now Florida has something farked-up happening every other day? What is going on down there?

Mrdark, it must be the sinkholes. See, when the election fiasco happened, all of these people swarmed into Miami and started drinking bottled water, taking baths, and generally doing their best to eliminate the water table. Oh, the legs that the table stands on were pretty sturdy, but given the trilateral commission and their dealings, the water table had to fall. And that's how Florida got its Groove back. The End.

hum-inmates find handgrenades, and the're still inmates? criminals ARE stupind.
2002-01-30 10:56:50 AM  
they should have played a lively game of "hot potato(e)". Don't drop it or you lose (your life)!
2002-01-30 10:57:55 AM  
That's the sound of the men, exploding on the chaiiiiiin gang...
2002-01-30 11:09:07 AM  
...oh, ok.

So, what's the deal with Florida anyway?
2002-01-30 11:10:31 AM  
Man, I gotta start looking under bridges!
2002-01-30 11:14:56 AM  



I'll go now.
2002-01-30 11:15:51 AM  
Wow - check my madd HTMl skillz...

Why did the >/joke< go to the top?
2002-01-30 11:38:31 AM  
"Had it gone off, it could have caused loss of life."

Ya think so?
2002-01-30 11:43:55 AM  
And then they all sodomized each other.

But seriously, farks, it's getting so you can't stash weapons by the highway anymore.
2002-01-30 11:50:27 AM  
Grenade go boom, inmate go *splatter*.
2002-01-30 11:52:35 AM  
*standing 50 yards away w/scoped rifle* Now son, what cha' gonna do with that over-grown piece of fireworks?
2002-01-30 11:59:34 AM  
I would have smuggled them back into the prison via my anal receptacle unit and become a *HERO*! Everyone would be my biatch!
2002-01-30 12:05:32 PM  
If I were them, I would have hid in New Jersey.
2002-01-30 12:09:09 PM  
Illusion, talk about blowing your arse into next week if an inmate did that and it happened to go off later!
2002-01-30 12:14:22 PM  
Mrdark -- Florida has long been a strange place, at least if Carl Hiaasen novels are any indication. There are some weird people down there.
2002-01-30 12:23:40 PM  
9/10, it's okay, I'd wrap them in condoms first.
2002-01-30 12:28:20 PM  
I always leave mine at the base of a big tree, thirty pace north of the creek by the road.
2002-01-30 12:45:16 PM  
What's everyone panicking about? These things probably just fell off a passing grenade truck.
2002-01-30 12:49:19 PM  
Illusion - if your anal opening is big enough to hold a grenade, you'd probably be enjoying prison.
2002-01-30 01:06:42 PM  
I knew that I left my WTO Protestor murder orbs someplace!
2002-01-30 02:03:59 PM  
Oh Lord
Bless this thy hand grenade
that with it thou might blow thine enemy to tiny bits
if thy must

Only in Florida, folks, only in florida.

Skiinstructor --
1, 2, 5!!!
2002-01-30 03:08:42 PM  
Maybe there were in fact 12 live hand grenades found.

Tomorrow's post: "Prison explosion kills dozens - cause yet unknown"

This sounds like an upcoming episode of Oz...

Curley Fine finds something on the ground...

"oohh, pineapple!!"

*Bites down*

**Crrrunnchhh!* "OW! OW! OW!"

"Bad pineapple!"

*tosses it over shoulder*


"Ah! Ah! Ah! WOO! WOO! WOO!"

Guys don't you get it? Further Signs that Grand Theft Auto is modeled on real life! Now if only I could find that rocket launcher lying around...
