    Ex-Inmate's Costume Sparks Jail Lockdown

    Ex-Inmate's Costume Sparks Jail Lockdown

    By JIM FITZGERALD, Associated Press Writer
    Wed Nov 1, 6:14 PM

    WHITE PLAINS, N.Y. - A jail went into lockdown and recounted its prisoners on Halloween night after a former inmate was spotted trick-or-treating in his old orange prisoner's jumpsuit.

    "Bad choice of costume," said Susan Tolchin, chief adviser to Westchester County Executive Andrew Spano.

    The former inmate, Oscar Aponte, was taking his daughter trick-or-treating in Peekskill on Tuesday night when a county correction officer _ also out trick-or-treating with her child _ spotted the familiar jumpsuit, Tolchin said.

    "She confronted him, and he ran and drove off," Tolchin said. The officer took down the man's license plate and called authorities.

    The jail went into lockdown until a prisoner count established that no one was missing. Meanwhile, police found Aponte, confiscated the genuine jumpsuit and let him go.
    Aponte was arrested and charged Wednesday with petty larceny and possession of stolen property, both misdemeanors, Tolchin said. She said prisoners are not permitted to take their jumpsuits home when they are released.

    There was no telephone listing for Aponte's address.

    Aponte was in the jail from May to September for violating probation on a drunken driving charge.

    What was he wearing when released?

    Good question. How was he able to take it home? Don't they exchange their clothes for his clothes??

    Yeah I've never heard of a prisoner walking out with their prison jumpsuit on, that's just asking for trouble down the road.

    So if he's a free man, why in the world did he run off when confronted? That man is paranoid! lol

    The quote;"Stupid is as Stupid does" comes to mind here.

    It also brings up another hypothetical question;


    If John Kerry had fumbled his joke in another way....lets say he said if you don't get an education you will become a stupid criminal, or a criminal in general.

    Do you think 1) That would have caused an uproar from Criminals everywhere, or
    2) Do you think the ACLU would look at suing him for saying that??

    Some of the weird things I think of sometimes.........and Yes I know I'm not right and I'm ok with that fact!!!!!!!!!!!!!
