    Sound like these young fellows can look forward to many more days and years behind bars…Let’s revisit them in about eight to ten years when they get out of prison for this little fiasco… Stay out of trouble boys, get a job, get married and pay taxes like the rest of us…well most of us…some of us ?… well maybe a few of us…

    How is it that one well two can hop a fence at the plummer center. The fence is high, so how do 2 people make it across undetected. Although its lower security that doesn’t excuse inmates of any capacity being unsupervised. This sounds like something someone should be disciplined if not fired for!! Totally unacceptable..Rather common over the years though at Plummer Center.

    the security gaurd was on his i phone looking at facebook.

  4. Wow says:

    Jennifer, you have never worked in corrections have you? You don’t seem too bright on this subject!

  5. Wow says:

    Born here ~ Correctional Officer, not guard.

  6. Jennifer says:

    WOW: No, never worked in corrections. After hearing of all the corruptness in that occupation I was bright enough to know it wasnt for me.
    Thanks for youre input. You are correct I was thinking the plummer center was the facility off kirkwood highway which is immediately behind a state troop. So i did have a location flaw when I typed that. It still doesnt help me understand how this could occur?

  7. J says:

    Wow,apparently you do work in corrections, or one can assume. Thanks for not doing your job, I like reading articles every day about escaped convicts running around from every form of facility in this entire state.

    I still cant believe the amount of people that can escape prison or some form of detention. Only in Delaware!

  8. J says:

    Heather, its not an isolated incident. This happens everywhere in Delaware. Never have I ever seen so many people escaping. I mean come on people, they make block buster movies about that kind of stuff!

    They skip work release, they jump walls, they WALK OUT! Man oh man we need to boot the people working our judicial system out from lawmakers to judges and, apparently correctional facility workers as well. But some of us have been trying that for years, decades.

    it isn’t a prison or a detention facility, it is a probation center. they are allowed to come and go from time to time because they aren’t incarcerated, they are on a high level of probation working towards getting themselves back into society. They aren’t breaking out of jail, they are not returning from scheduled passes, it is a huge difference.

  10. ProtectMyself says:

    Could not agree more J.

  11. not surprised says:

    J for president, NOT!

  12. J says:

    Who cares anon? Why give them the right to come and go? Apparently they cant handle it and it still does not discredit the point I made. Obviously its not that big of a difference or it wouldn’t be such a major offense.

  13. Wow says:

    J n Jennifer- it’s not the officers fault that the “convicts” don’t return. Policies are followed that are set by higher authority. Once they don’t return, even though they are not an incarcerated inmate it is still considered an escape.

  14. ReAlLy says:

    It has to be very hard to monitor this level of inmate especially in these types of facilities. It is ashame that this phase of imprisonment is so immensely abused by the inmates. It is ashame that inmates are so desperate that they make the decision to escape, as that only gets them back to complete lock up. Silly silly people!!
