    If your gonna be dumb, you gotta be tough. He’ll now have 5 extra years to be tough on his sentence. Maximum security of course.

    If you ain’t smart enough to stay of jail in the first place, you ain’t gonna be smart enough to be an escapee.

    That few hours of freedom probably cost him another 10 years in prison. Plus his time will be much harder because he will never be allowed to have another position on an inmate work crew.
