Hmm… Sweet Freedom, Or Beer?

All of the excellent credit for this story goes to Killbot. No sharing for him.

ROGERSVILLE, Tennessee (AP) — The party’s over for four inmates accused of going on a beer run after the jail’s doors were accidentally left unlocked.

Two of the inmates walked out through a fire exit, leaving the door propped open with a Bible, and made a hole in the exercise yard fence. They walked to a market, bought some beer and returned to the jail to share it with other prisoners. When the booze ran out, the other two inmates made another beer run to a different store.

The store visits did not raise alarm because the inmates were wearing street clothes borrowed from other prisoners. The crowded jail does not have enough orange jumpsuits to go around.

That last line is classic. Really sums up the glory of Tennessee when a county jail can’t afford orange jumpsuits, let alone competent workers.

I run bamf.


  1. …first al gore then this, damn, i just lost that last bit of pride i had in my homestate. at least we know our priorities.(BEER)

  2. competent jailers?How about competent criminals. What kind of criminal mind breaks out of jail successfully to go back? Either Tennessee is such a shithole that prison is better than normal life, or they are as fucking stupid as we all believed.

  3. Star Trek PlaceThis is all you Sharky hehe

  4. Well, y’seeIn tennesee, the orange jumpsuits are hand-sown from orange peels. This tends to make the supply in short hand as a) hungry inmates eat them and b) they wear out right fast, not to mention the time it takes to peel all those oranges.I guess they never got the memo on clothing dye.
