Again ? didn't this just happen a while ago and one of them recived the death penalty ?

These guys escaped about an hour west of me. They'll turn up sooner or later. The guys that recently got the death penalty escaped over a year ago and killed a cop right outside of Dallas. Prisoners escape all of the time in every state. The only reason it's news here in Texas is because it doesn't happen very often here. The fact that the state of Texas has more people in prison than just about any other [b]country[/b] in the world doesn't help though. I'm sure the Texas Rangers are out looking for these guys and they know they are in deep shit.

[/b] Ponyboy. The Texas Seven Fiasco , it was one of the few times that I felt like I was under-armed at home.

Yeah, especially after they hit the sporting goods section and stole all of those firearms right before they killed Aubrey Hawkins. That is when you knew for sure they were armed and dangerous. Truthfully, I'm very surprised that those guys were ever taken alive. I was expecting to see them on tv holed up somewhere exchanging gunfire.

Nah, not to worry. Criminals are basically cowards, and prefer helpless victims who won't shoot back.

These guys escaped about 30 miles from me. I've got a friend that was a juror on the trial of one of the guys who killed the cheerleader. He says Gambill appears to have no remorse at all.

I think everybody did. I put the short barrel on my shotgun and loaded it up when I heard they were up here. That's something I don't usually do. They were found about 3-4 hours east of me. Whew.

Funny thing is, if you substitute "liberals" for "criminals" in the above sentence - it's just as true! [:D]

When I was in highschool some friends and I rented out a hotel room. We brought in a keg and invited a few other people over for a night of "festivities". Not long after the keg had been tapped the manager was knocking on the door to investigate complaints about us being too loud and the fact that there was 20 people in a room that was booked for two. Needless to say we got booted. Later on that night around midnight or so the place got held up and the manager was shot and killed. It's pretty weird thinking about it, cause that same guy kicked us out and was all pissed off only to lose his life later that night.

Hell no, cause we got [b]chain gangs[/b]! Nothin like seeing a bunch of criminals in black and white striped uniforms picking up trash on the side of the highway with a guy holding a shotgun supervising. Brings a smile to my face! [:)]
