Two Felons Escape From New Jersey Prison: Governor Responds By Abolishing Death Penalty

Governor Jon S. Corzine of New Jersey has such unmitigated confidence in New Jersey’s penitentiary system, and its ability to protect the public from society’s most dangerous criminals, that he has abolished the death penalty in New Jersey. Unfortunately, just prior to the governor’s announcement, two inmates escaped from the Union County jail. Otis Blunt and Jose Espinosa tunneled out of heir cells, using pinup photographs to disguise their progress, as Andy Dufresne did in The Shawshank Redemption. Then the two, in a brilliant replication of Ferris Bueller’s subterfuge, arranged their blankets to make it appear they were still in their beds.

Fortunately for the citizens of New Jersey, Governor Corzine plans to speed along the Garden State Parkway at 90 miles per hour, sans seat belt, tracking down the fugitives.

The truly troubling part of the story is the danger posed by these fugitives. Mr. Espinosa was serving time for his role in a shooting death and Mr. Blunt was awaiting trial on robbery and weapons charges. Governor Corzine opines about the amorality of “state-endorsed killing.” But where is the morality in knowingly failing to protect the citizens of New Jersey.

  1. Well that move sealed the deal–I will NEVER, EVER, NEVER, EVER move to New Jersey. I may never even visit it now. I love how righteous the governor sounded in his speech–like he is saving the world–except the only people he is saving are the murderers. Way to go Gov!
