Bye Bye Shithead………

FILE - At left, in a May 21, 2015, file photo released by the New York State Police is David Sweat. At right, in a May 20, 2015, file photo released by the New York State Police is Richard Matt.Richard W. Matt, one of the convicted murderers who engineered an elaborate escape from New York’s largest prison nearly three weeks ago, was shot and killed on Friday by a federal agent, two people with knowledge of the situation said.

The authorities encountered Mr. Matt after the inmate, who was on foot, tried to carjack a camper vehicle near Malone, N.Y., a third person with knowledge of the situation said. The driver sped away and called 911, and law enforcement officers responded.

There was a report of a second episode of gunfire as officers pursued David Sweat, the other inmate. The officers did not see Mr. Sweat, but they heard him running. His whereabouts was unclear.

“They don’t have eyes on the guy, but they have a three-mile perimeter around the area,” the third person with knowledge of the situation said.

Mr. Matt’s killing marked a violent conclusion to one prong of a manhunt that spread over large parts of the state, and exposed just how haphazard the inmates’ escape had apparently become over the course of their time at large.

For all the intricate planning that allowed them to break out of their cells at the Clinton Correctional Facility in Dannemora, N.Y., the killers in the end made it only about 40 miles from prison’s imposing walls, moving between remote hunting cabins under the cover of dense woods.

The attempted carjacking ended a brutal criminal career for Mr. Matt, who also escaped from an Erie County jail in 1986.

The New York State Police said in a statement on Friday that a law enforcement officer “spotted a man in a wooded area” in Malone. An officer then “shot and killed a man believed to be Clinton Correctional Facility escapee Richard Matt,” the statement said.

“A positive identification is still pending,” it said.

Roadblocks set up on Friday evening near Lake Titus, in the town of Malone, kept residents and reporters away from what appeared to be tense law enforcement activity in the woods. Shortly after 5 p.m., a dozen state troopers with firearms stood 50 feet apart along Fayette Road near Route 30, just north of Lake Titus in Malone. They stared intently into the woods flanking the dirt road on the south, guns drawn. “The dogs are out,” one trooper said.

Justice is served………

Retro of the day: Player


Baby Come Back” is a song by American rock band Player. It was released in October 1977 as the lead single from their self-titled second studio album. It was written by lead singer Peter Beckett and J.C. Crowley. The song was their biggest single, hitting number one on the Billboard Hot 100 and number 10 on the soul charts, in 1978. It was the breakthrough single for the band, gaining them mainstream success, and the only number-one hit of their career.

The song has been used in the film Safe Men (1998). In 2011, it was the source of a parody by Chicago artist, Magic 1, entitled “Cutty Come Back”, which alludes to the Chicago Bears’ woes without quarterback Jay Cutler.[1][2][3][4][5] The song is also used in the Michael Bay blockbuster Transformers, when the AutobotBumblebee communicates with its new owner Sam Witwicky through songs on the radio. In this case, after an incident with the girl he is attracted to, Mikaela, gets out of the car and Sam tries to persuade her to “come back”. The lyrics of the song are expected to accomplish this desire, as laid out by the filmmakers, though it is unlikely given the context that she would actually come back anyway.
