Where do we mail the guy commissary money?

Statistically, he attempted to free people who are guilty of existing while black.

Can anyone provide a plausible endgame here? I'm lost.
It's not like he's going to hide weapons behind a trick bookshelf or something. I got the feeling that one would need to break through concrete to get to them, so what's the point?
I did see where they said "various hiding spots" but I would think that routine inspections would find those since, presumably, they would need to be in areas accessible to detainees.

I'm unsure of his endgame here... was he going to sell treasure maps to inmates once the jail was complete?
 
2020-05-27 12:40:47 AM  
He should have kept one of those keys up his poop shoot!

I'm sure he's hoping they missed one or two when he starts his sentence there.

Well secretly tunneling through concrete to get to the weapons just requires pressure and time. That's all it takes really, pressure, and time.

That's what I get for not refreshing before commenting

the guns are one thing.  I want to know how he got keys that could be used on the cells/doors of the place.  you think they have them under tight lock down with only a few people having access.
 
2020-05-27 3:04:57 AM  
He's planting contraband in the prison walls to make sure he has contraband in the prison walls for when he goes to prison for planting contraband in the prison walls.

Now that's thinking ahead.

somehow methinks that he was not planning on sharing the guns or keys.  More likely he was trying to set up a "get out of jail free card" for the next time he gets busted.

But that doesn't even make any sense if you're the one they want. Just don't go to jail in the first place, because now you're on the run if you break out.

If you're doing it to free someone else, that's their issue. Presumably they were okay with that and set this up.

You'd be surprised how infrequently spot-checks involve stripping drywall.

According to 9 out of 10 Fark statisticians, there are no black people in jail because the police shoot them all.

So the guy had a criminal record for attempted murder and seemed ro think he was likely to be incarcerated again.

I don't think this was an elaborate escape attempt, the equipment is all wrong unless he thought he eas going to be in some kind of WW2 POW camp. I think instead he was planning to start a prison riot hostage situation demanding prisoner reform. The handcuff keys would let inmates free each other and they'd have weapons hidden throughout the facility to subdue the guards. This could be done either on-site if he were incarcerated or remotely if he found an accomplice already serving. This also explains the four locks needing to be replaced - nearly worthless escaping the prison but potentially useful to let prisoners through interior sections to meet up.

Here's the problem.

A lot of people in jail and prison, most of them really, are very bad people and actually belong there. We are all better off because they are sealed up behind concrete walls and triple bands of razor wire.

There are people who got railroaded, yes; there are people who would be better served by being in psychiatric facilities or getting monitored release; but MOST of the people in there need to be there.

If you want to be a "prison reformer", reform the prisons themselves, and get them back into shape as penitentiaries and rehabilitation centers; not by releasing all those bad guys back out into society.

I'm sorry, but in what way would your "prison reform" plan increase shareholder value?

I think you'll have to go back to the drawing board.

Some gestures are only made to be gestures, not actually achieve anything functional save for the "Looks like we got a badass over here!" notoriety with those that share their platform.
