New York Gov. Cuomo: We don’t know if escaped inmates are still in U.S.

As a large manhunt for two escaped murderers stretched into its ninth day in upstate New York, Gov. Andrew Cuomo said Sunday that “we don’t know if they are still in the immediate area or if they are in Mexico by now.”

In recent days, searchers have focused on the woods near Dannemora, N.Y., where Richard Matt and David Sweat were discovered missing from the maximum-security Clinton Correctional Facility on June 6.

    Has anyone thought to look in the Whitehut or the Pentagon? They might have disguised themselves as secret service agents or five star generals.

      Both being ‘white’ I don’t think they’d be allowed to enter ‘whitehut’.

    The New York Post reports that Gov. Cuomo intruded into the manhunt at an early stage because he wanted the State Police to monopolize the glory to the exclusion of local forces and the FBI and produced what one unnamed constable described as a “total cluster fuck.”

      Yeah I was listening to WBEN between 4 and 6 and they were all over Cuomo about this. Could almost hear Cuomo yelling, “You can’t hunt prisoners with an assault weapon, nobody needs ten bullets to kill a murderer”.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dvKXJ6VTlAM
