Seems like if you actually escaped from that place and didn't kill anybody, they should give you a medal, not a manhunt.

Those guys were all turned into crab feces a loooong time ago

Still haven't found them after 60 years?

Yeah, they died a long time ago.

Eh, those authorities are losers, whining about "their best."  After I escaped, I went home and farked the prom queen.

Did Anyone Escape Alcatraz?
Youtube A9vbyPw8OzQ


Answer: yes they did escape, they had pictures of them in south america, and the family knew the whole time where they were and kept in contact with them. As in, facial recognition software from 2 years ago said yeah those are them

Pretty sure the middle guy is Harrison Ford.

Yeah, MythBusters did a series on this.
Didn't turn out so well for the convicts.

Today I learned that somebody will try to fake being a prison escapee to get cancer care in the United States. That's farking grim.

I think I saw them in Red Dead Redemption II. I killed them. You're welcome.

If they had been better at building their raft they would have been fine. And,yeah, avoid the outgoing tide at all costs, it's no joke.

Can you just kill everyone you meet in RDRII? Everyone says it's boring as hell, but depopulating the map might be amusing.

If they've managed to stay off the radar of law enforcement for 60 years, I'd say they've probably been rehabilitated.
 
2022-06-22 7:17:42 PM  
Good lord!  Let it go! IF they lived:
Frank Morris would be 96
John Anglin would be 92
Clarence Anglin be 91

I seriously doubt they are alive, but, if they are, good lord, leave them alone!

If I remember correctly, the manhunt gets called off when they are either captured, confirmed dead, or hit the age of 100.

Frank is off the hook in 4 years.

I think this might fall firmly into "A fox runs for his lunch, a rabbit runs for his life" territory.  Trying your best with a safety crew an arms reach away is one thing, but anything is possible when your life is on the line.

So much this.

Waste of time and money at this point, just leave them alone if they're even still out there. 

Government bureaucracy at its finest.

Yeah, saying that they never succeeded because nobody ever captured them is the dumbest possible take...

Jesus, that guy kinda leads a tour by the "collapsing spiral" method, though... We'll get there when we get there, basically.

But he's definitely easier to listen to than these text to speech bots some people use on YouTube. I enjoyed him, he just kinda wandered around...

I'm not surprised they survived. The bullshiat explanation that since nobody ever found a body, that must mean they died has always pissed me off. Not an actual answer, just a hope that they can keep their "perfect record" intact.

Well, it's Mythbusters. They knew going in that they wanted to "bust" it. They ended up being horribly obvious with that.

Getting off that rock is rehabilitation alone. They did their time.

I say if you escape from jail and go 60 years without anyone finding you or getting in trouble, you get an automatic full pardon.

Maynotlast: So does this mean the Feds have finally admitted their whole "they drowned in SF Bay and DIDN'T actually escape and make us look like idiots" theory was BS?[Fark user image 850x568]


No, they didn't admit anything.

"The ongoing US Marshals investigation of the 1962 escape from Alcatraz federal prison serves as a warning to fugitives: That regardless of time, we will continue to look for you and bring you to justice," US marshals said in a statement.

They want you to believe that and be very scared of them, despite failing at the whole "bring you to justice" part.

Now that's an interest mention. I give the convict better odds of being alive than Cooper, but even he might have made it.

To be fair simon doesnt write the script, he just reads it and adds his own thoughts to it as he goes. And he has like 12 different channels covering just about everything. Well worth a sub to the ones with topics you like because he is always good, even though his writers are sometimes assholes in their layouts
