No joke; a prisoner in Leavenworth, Kansas escaped from custody today while taking out the trash! Raheem Armstead gave corrections officers the slip and is now at large. Of course, we all understand that because of budget cuts, there sometimes isn't anyone on payroll in the building, particularly on weekends, to take out the trash in the local lockup, (where's the eye-rolley when I need it?) but is common sense really in such terribly short supply? Why the hell was a prisoner taking out the trash?
Raheem Armstead, the man who outsmarted Kansas corrections officers.
Update: Raheem Armstead is back in custody now. Authorities will not, however; reveal where Mr. Armstead was found, which makes me wonder if he was ever really missing in the first place! Happy New Year, Kansas!
