Catching prison escapees using Facebook

“For instance, if a prisoner escapes somewhere nearby, we could post it on Facebook,” So says Joshua McMillan of the Russellville Arkansas police.

Suddenly, I have this image of a New Yorker cartoon where a woman is on the couch huddled over her laptop while her husband sits in his recliner reading the newspaper.  A man in prisoner garb is peering through the window. 

And the woman says, “Honey, the police say my new Facebook friend, Bruce, just escaped from the county jail.”
