    Just a thought that crossed my mind ...



    Not that it makes any difference - but, I noted that that Thompson (now 35) would have been 27 or 28 yrs old back in 1998 when he murdered Dennise - his 39 yr. old ex-girlfriend & her new 30 yr. old boyfriend.

    Guess it's no big deal these days - but, it kinda peaked my interest why an almost 40 yr. old woman would be hooking up with 27-30 yr old young guys.

    I can't quite put my finger on it - but, as the Mom of a 28 yr. old son - that would have concerned me.

    Escapee Charles Victor Thompson captured in Shreveport, La.

    The Gulf Coast Violent Offenders Task Force got a tip today that led Shreveport police and the U.S. Marshal's Service to the 700 block of 70th Street, where officers saw a man they thought to be Thompson on a bicycle near a pay phone in front of the liquor store. When asked to identify himself, he replied, "You know who I am."

    Asked again, he responded, "My name is Charles Thompson."

    Thompson, 35, appeared to be intoxicated, police said.

    Just when I think that I have seen the most depraved things a human can do to another human, somebody posts a new story...........

    Why is it that when a custodial parent fails to provide for a child it is called neglect and is a criminal matter. But when a non custodial parent fails to provide it is called failure to support and is a civil matter?

    The brazen jailbreak that bought a condemned killer three more days of freedom has cost one Harris County sheriff's deputy his job and led to disciplinary action against seven other jailers.

    Sheriff Tommy Thomas announced the measures Monday while reasserting his belief that Charles Victor Thompson was able to walk out of the Harris County Jail early this month strictly because of human error not because of outside help or flawed procedures.

    Calling Thompson a "cunning" man who used his affable personality to dupe the jail staff, Thomas said the double murderer told investigators he had planned his escape for about two years.

    "There is no reason to believe anyone else was involved in this, knowingly involved, in aiding this individual," the sheriff said.

    The security lapse cost a 12-year veteran of the sheriff's office his job for failing to properly restrain Thompson and failing to lock a visitor booth from which the killer was able to walk freely on Nov. 3, Thomas said.

    From there, Thompson conned his way out of the jail at 1200 Baker by posing as a state employee. He told investigators he hopped a freight train out of town before being arrested on Nov. 6 outside a Shreveport liquor store.

    After his recapture, Thompson told authorities he had begun planning his escape soon after learning he had won another sentencing trial. He said he smuggled a handcuff key, civilian clothes and his prison ID card into the jail, hiding them in his cell or among his court documents, the sheriff said.

    "He was a very cunning individual," Thomas said. "He told us he tried to be very friendly to the jail staff, overly friendly, and used that to his advantage."

    Investigators said Thompson told them he kept his civilian clothes after his last court appearance and hid them in his cell. After meeting with a Houston lawyer who was not involved in his case, he slipped out of his cuffs and into the clothes. From there, he used his prison badge, with the word "offender"covered with tape, to convince guards that he was an investigator from the Texas Attorney General's Office.

    I'm glad to see some serious changes and firings over this. They have to protect the public from incarcerated criminals.

    That is part of the problem. They haven't made any serious changes. They just fired the little guys (the deputies). The sheriff says that no policies need to be changed.
    One thing that I could see was that the guy was able to put a piece of tape on his prison ID and make it look like an employee badge. That needs to be changed. They need to be a different color background or something, to make it impossible for anyone to alter it to look like an employee badge.
    I don't even work there, and I can see that. If someone who works there would talk, bet they could come up with other policies that need changing.
