    ABC News - Two 'Dangerous' Inmates Escaped From Texas Jail (ABC News)

Texas authorities are using helicopters and dogs to search for two "dangerous" Texas inmates who escaped from jail this morning by squeezing through a gate, leaving behind their black and white prison suits on the railroad tracks behind the jail.

Authorities believe Brian Tucker, 44, and John King, 39, escaped from Hopkins County Jail in Sulphur Springs, Texas, at around 8:30 a.m. today.

"Both are considered dangerous," Deputy Alvin Jordan of the Hopkins County Sheriff's Office told ABCNews.com.

Area schools are on lockdown and businesses are on high alert, according to police.

Tucker was awaiting trial in jail for capital murder charges and King had been indicted for evading arrest.

"They were put out on rec yard to have outside rec and undoubtedly squeezed through the gate and took off," Jordan said. "We did find their black and whites about 100 yards behind the facility."

Tucker and King were both segregated from other inmates because of the types of crimes they have committed, according to Jordan.

It is unknown what the men are wearing, whether they may have used some kind of transportation after leaving the jail yard and whether they are still together, Jordan said.

Asked if there is any reason to believe they could be armed, Jordan said, "At this point, unless they picked up anything from here to where they're at, the weapons part is unknown."

Their only known connection at this time is that they were inmates at the same time in the same jail with no known previous ties.

Authorities are warning people to be careful and call 911 if they see the men.

"If they're spotted, make sure they lock their doors, call 911 and tell us what area they're in," Jordan said. "Don't try to let them approach you."

Tucker is 5-foot-7-inches and about 170 pounds. He has brown eyes, brown hair and multiple tattoos. King is 5-foot-8-inches and 165 pounds. He has black hair, hazel eyes and multiple tattoos.

Gee Billie,

Since we're talking about ignorance and people supporting criminals and all.

I want to know why, when we had a post from a person that believed that she would have her husband beat the "gay" out of their kids ... She received one "like" and it came from you?

Why, do you support such ignorance?


Quoting Billiejeens:

 


Ignorance


Quoting Donna6503:

I blame Obama and his very liberal food stamp program; everybody knows that if Obama didn't allow food stamps those convicts would've preferred their life in prison.

Yep, gotta blame Obama it is his fault totally.

She didn't say that she would have her husband do anything.

She indicated that daddy would beat the gay out

Try to be accurate, please.

I am not draging this thread down with this nonsense.

Her oldest child is three - she is incredibly young and not experienced, I do not believe that many years from now her child will be being beaten.

However, understand this - if I should see the child being beaten for that or anything else, you will be behind me in the rush to quickly put an end to that.

If they are caught, they should send them to the Black Dolphin Prison in Russia, there is no escaping that place. Prisons here are a joke!

It wasn't a prison it was from a jail, for some reason the jail is near tracks, one is in for capital murder, this happened 24 miles from me and their stolen car was found in the town I live in, we have heard choppers all day long and our schools are on lock down! It has been a very scary situation in little east Texas today!

Why is the word dangerous in quotations?  To me that denotes sarcasm, but maybe there's a different reason?
