I wish there were more people like Lawrence Adams in this world. When Ian Stawicki pulled his gun out and started shooting because he was declined service at the Cafe Racer (where he had previously been banned for his behavior), he decided to do what he needed to save lives. He only had some stools, which he threw at Stawicki, which enabled several other customers to leave. He is a true hero. More lives would have been lost without him.

Guest Post: Great Prison Escapes by Jaclyn Nicholson

“Throughout the years, there have been prison escapes that have been mind blowing. In fact, every year many prisoners escape. Some of the most famous prison escapes include those of Anglin Bros. and Morris, Frank W. Abagnale, Jr., Ted Bundy and The Texas Seven. Most prisoners who attempt to escape are those who are convicted of either theft or violent crimes. Prisoners who have 10-25 years of sentencing are most likely to escape, at 31%. Surprisingly, those who are serving 25+ years had the lowest rate of escapes at 5%. It is assumed that prisoners would have no chance to flee, but in actuality, for every 11.2 prisoners there are only 2 guards. Do you think more funding should go to guards for security?”
