No doubt some of you have read about the two dudes on the loose somewhere in New York. Luckily they are hundreds of miles from anywhere I need to be concerned about and hopefully run north to Canada instead of south. These two guys are evil, like the most heinous of the bad.
The two men whose daring weekend escape from a New York state prison has triggered a nationwide manhunt are seriously hardened killers.
One killed a cop. The other dismembered his former boss.
Richard Matt, 48, and David Sweat, 34, lived in adjoining cells in the maximum security section of the Clinton Correctional Facility in rural Dannemora, N.Y. They were counted as present Friday night but found to be missing during a 5:30 a.m. bed check.
"It's very important that we locate these individuals," Gov. Andrew Cuomo said. "They are dangerous and we want to make sure that they don't inflict any more pain and any more harm."
Sweat is white, 5 feet-11 inches tall and weighs 165 pounds, police said. He was 22 years old when he and another man shot and killed Broome County Deputy Kevin Tarsia, a 13-year veteran.
I remember when Sweat killed the officer not far from where I live. It was a heinous act, they shot him to disfigure and then ran the officer over:
I hope they shoot this guy on site if they find him, he deserved the death penalty anyway. Just light this ****er up when they catch up to him and be done with it.“They said they couldn’t give him the death penalty,” Tarsia’s father, Phillip Tarsia, said. “That’s what they told us, so they gave him life without parole.”
On July 4, 2002, Tarsia was brutally murdered by three robbery suspects when he confronted them near Binghamton.
“Well, he’s dangerous,” Tarsia’s brother, Daniel Tarsia, said over the phone. “He did my brother brutally.”
Police said Sweat shot Tarsia and drove over him with a car.
“You don’t shoot his nose out,” Daniel said. “Shoot him 16 times. Shoot him through the hand. I don’t know. He’s just, he’s a sick guy.”
Daniel learned of Sweat’s escape from the Clinton Correctional Facility on Saturday.
The other guy is just as bad and deserves the same fate in my opinion:
To top it off Matt is alleged to have a genius IQ. He also killed an American in Mexico with the knife which is what got him caught and extradited to the U.S. So you have two thugs with rap sheets longer than I am tall, one of which has a history of breakouts who are now on the loose in upper NY. These two ****s should have got a bullet to the head years ago but somehow the system says "nope they are better off in jail".Bates testified that after Matt entered Rickerson's home, punched the victim in the face and knocked him down, Matt grabbed a long, thin knife sharpener and hit the victim with it several times. Matt also stuck the object in Rickerson's ear once, Bates said.
Bates said after about an hour, Rickerson was bound with duct tape, carried outside by Matt and thrown into the trunk of Bates' 1990 Chevrolet.
During the car ride, Matt would occasionally yell back to Rickerson, "Where's the money?"
"Sometimes there was a reply, sometimes there was a grunt, sometimes there wasn't anything," Bates said.
At one point, Matt directed Bates to drive to a secluded spot in Pennsylvania, where they opened the trunk, and Matt allegedly hit Rickerson several times with The Club, a steering-wheel security lock Bates had in his car.
After a drive through a snowstorm in Allegany State Park, Bates said they headed west and pulled over near the Sunset Beach Club outside Silver Creek because Rickerson was making noise and pulled out a wire to the car stereo's speaker.
"Rick Matt was telling him, 'Did you remember where the money is? Make this easier on yourself,' " Bates said.
They opened the trunk, and Bates said Matt broke four of Rickerson's fingers and struck him in the chest with The Club. "He made a screaming-type noise," Bates said of Rickerson.
With Rickerson moaning, they drove toward Buffalo.
"[Matt] had me turn down a road that was a cul-de-sac," Bates said. "I opened the trunk with the key. . . . Rick Matt said, 'You know, I've had enough of this.' He reached in and twisted on [Rickerson's] head. I heard a pop. [Rickerson] just dropped back in the trunk."
They drove back to North Tonawanda and dumped the body on Tonawanda Island, Bates said. He said Matt later told him about returning with a hacksaw and a shovel to dismember the body and throw pieces into the Niagara River.
Unreal to me sometimes that **** like this happens, these are some sadistic mother****ers on the loose. I'd shoot them myself on sight if I had the opportunity and deal with the ramifications later. They should open loose felon hunting season in NY We could start a pool with door prizes etc...to the winners lol.
