"Kentucky Corrections officials say they expect the incident to deter future escape attempts."

That's priceless!

That's just the movie I thought of too!

It would have been a very short film if it turned out this way!

If this happened to any of the terrorists down there at GITMO I guarantee the press in this country would go nuts!

These poor stupid schleps in Kentucky probably won't rate 20 more posts on this thread.

I didn't think fear of death was a crime deterrent.

Too bad we can't administer this kind of death penalty to countless other murderers, rapists, child abusers, etc.

This is unconscionable.

Federal OSHA regulations must be immediately amended to require electronic scream detectors in the cargo spaces of all garbage trucks, which detectors must be wired to interlock the compression mechanism.

One of these creeps broke in a house in the night and raped a 17 year old girl 2 years ago. Her dad was interviewed on Lexington local TV last night and was overjoyed at this change of events. He had sent his daughter out of town when they heard of his escape. The poor girl and her family had been terrified.

I'm waiting for the lawsuit against "Kentucky Corrections officials", the trash haulers, the manufacturer of the trash compactor and whomever else is in sight. More reasons to hate lawyers.
