    KY - After 4 decades as fugitive, ailing man turns himself in

    FRANKFORT, Ky. (AP) — Frail and tired of leading a secret life for four decades, 66-year-old Clarence David Moore called police this week to surrender. The deputy who answered thought it was a prank. It wasn't.

    Moore escaped from police custody three times during the 1970s and eventually settled into a quiet life, living in Kentucky since at least 2009. His health is poor from a stroke and he has difficulty speaking. Without a legitimate ID or Social Security number, he had apparently struggled to get medical care.

    When Franklin County Sheriff Pat Melton showed up at Moore's house to make the "arrest," Moore was in a hospital bed. He broke down in tears.

    "He looks like he's almost 90," the sheriff said.

    Before you criticize someone, you should walk a mile in their shoes. That way, when you criticize them, you're a mile away and you have their shoes.

    "When from a long distant past nothing persists, after the people are dead, after things are broken and scattered, still alone, more persistent, more faithful, the smell and taste of things remain poised a long, long time like souls, ready to remind us, waiting, hoping for their moment amid the ruins of all the rest, and bear unfaltering in the tiny and almost impalpable drop of their essence the vast structure of recollection."

    I can't feel sorry for him, and now we have to cover the costs of his illnesses while he's in jail.

    I can feel bad for him. He got a stiff sentence for a petty crime. Yeah, he shouldn't have run but jeez, it's been 40 years & he hasn't seemed to be living a criminal lifestyle, aside from being on the run. People can change for the better. I can empathize without excusing though.
