It's OK, they'll get good union-approved job evaluations and promotions, then retire at 55 on full salary for life.

Joseph "Jose" Banks, 37, and Kenneth Conley, 38, had been wearing prison-issue orange jumpsuits, but now might be wearing white t-shirts, gray sweat pants and white gym shoes, Chicago Police Sgt. Mark Lazarro said.

I'd wager they are wearing sensible mens' suits, if I know Jos. A. Banks.

Today only, escape with Jose Banks and get a second knotted bedsheet absolutely free!

My mom was in the jury pool for one of these two idiots. Needless to say she doesn't have to serve on the jury.

1) 20 STORIES down a bedshet rope? With balls like that, they should be useful for someone.
2) Isn't there a better way to use real estate in downtown Chicago?

This would have never happened in a privately-owned prison.

Don't be silly. Every single guard stationed outside of the jail should be fired. Every single one.

(Guess how many that is!)

you obviously have NO clue how much suck it is to work in a prison. few last very long. that's not a job you take because it's your life goal, it's sheer desperation because of bad habits like eating daily and living indoors. i would rather shovel shiat in a Zoo, scrape barnacles off boats or mop jizz off the floors in an adult peep show.

It's probably a holding facility for a Federal courthouse, not a long-term warehouse prison.

It's near the courthouse, and it holds people before/during there trials (they don't serve their sentences there).

I've driven by that prison a million times. How does no one see that happening? And how they fark did they fit through those little slats for windows?

They escaped through windows 6 inches wide and used a rope made out of 30 some odd sheets that they were able to somehow conceal and NOBODY noticed at all. Really now... I'm calling BS on the whole story. Someone is trying to cover up for royally screwing the pooch on this one

My first thought was they had somebody throw the rope out the window while they escaped in a laundry cart or somesuch

Nice lack of pictures.I guess they don't want them found.

I work just west of the Jail and this morning after the news came out we saw the sheets/rope dangling from the middle of the building; these clever guys even created a harness. We counted 3 helicopters in the area possibly news but still, they were up there. Tons of Cops were in the area, too.

MOST impressive is how they squeezed out of the windows. they can't be more than 1 foot wide. see picture below.

2012-12-18 05:28:41 PM  
For those of you who keep saying the windows are too wide... um... no.

www.chicagoarchitecture.info

According to this web site, the windows are only five inches wide.

I remember being in Chicago and having to go outside for thirty minutes or so around 5 or 6am if you were in a bar - some weird rule they had/have. Everybody would just hang out for a while, smoking and talking drunkenly to people on their way to work while waiting to be let back in.

These guys lowered themselves over 200 feet on bedsheets? Sounds like somebody isn't paying attention to what goes on in their jail if two inmates can accumulate this many sheets. And what kind of crap ass jail has a window you can remove?

Yeah, this one strains belief. From another article: The windows on the upper floors which illuminate inmate cells are 5 inches wide, the maximum width allowed by the Bureau of Prisons. (Interior bars were added to these in 1985 after a pair of inmates enlarged one of the openings with a barbell and rappelled down the exterior on an extension cord to temporary freedom.)

They had to have removed one or more bars, chiseled out the opening without anyone noticing AND tied at least 40 bedsheets together? And when they got to the ground, they somehow made it to Tinley Park?

If they really did all of that it's damn impressive, but I'm thinkin it was more of a "I think we're in the wrong line, we're supposed to be getting OUT of prison today."
 
2012-12-18 05:37:15 PM  
It's pretty much standard procedure for their to be a great deal of corruption amongst prison guards. I'd wager that a guard or two was in on this.

Check and see if they are in La Cocina across the street. Good enchiladas in there.

nice one. The second guy is pretty close to Kenneth Cole as well, but this was rather clever.

Good job.

Yeah, it does sound like something a guard might have done to cover either his involvement or his incompetence after the guys walked out on the ground floor.

That is because technically bars can not be open for 24 hours. So close for a few minutes (some places the widdled it down to 10 minutes) and open back up. Creative capitalism.
