158: The Dannemora Prison Break

Updated: Jan 1, 2021

Is it just me, or should breaking our of a SUPER MAX PRISON be hard? AND YET SOMEHOW THESE TWO IDIOTS FIUGURED OUT HOW TO DO IT?

On the night of June 5, 2015, two MURDERERS, broke out of a prison fortress thought to be impenetrable. A little after 11 p.m., they climbed through holes they had cut — over months, with tools smuggled in by a prison guard — in the cell walls. They snaked through tunnels and between walls and through a steam pipe, which took them underneath the prison. They popped out of a manhole on the other side of the prison wall. THE ACCOMPLISHED ALL THIS WITH THE HELP OF A PRISON SEAMSTRESS, You are not going to BELIEVE this story. Or the rage we feel about. Oh, the beautiful rage.
