    You don’t think he had another passport,,,he’s long gone. The ‘system’ gave him almost 2 years to set it up. Mean while in other news a nut-job was sentence to 6 years in prison today for sending a threatening letter to Governor LePage.

    One America for them and one for the rest of us.

    (el-nut job goes straight to prison after being sentence)

    Where did he go?
    Why, he went in the woods and ate his gun.

      I’m thinking the same. Check those logging roads for the Audi.

          Or the drug lords he helped, are helping him hooked up with his offshore money.

        We can hope. But 3 minutes in a kayak (or even a set of waders in some places) will get you into Canada undetected.

    How many years will we have to read about this “drama”? Hope it is not as long as the Ayla case that the Maine media has made into the world’s biggest drama possible. PS1: One does not need a passport or money to enter or leave America. Ask one of the millions of refugees aka Mexicans and others; or one of the world’s many drug dealers. PS2: Are the people who read the news and listen to the media really as stupid as they appear to be?

    • millions of refugees aka mexicans

      Are the people who read the news and listen to the media really as stupid as they appear to be?

      Question asked and answered?

        Do you seriously doubt that there are millions of illegal mexicans in this country or that it is very, very easy to cross the border undetected?

        what do you live under a rock or have you just never leave your cozy, white little state of Maine?

        I’d say something lowered the old IQ by about 20 points or so…..whether or not it was the media remains a question

        • 1) No.
          2) I wouldn’t say “very, very easy”. Hundreds of thousands are caught in the act every year, processed and deported, though as many or more still get through obviously. I would say moderate difficulty.
          3) I am from the south originally and have lived in some rather diverse Boston suburbs in the past, though am in a rather white locale now. Not that this means much. There is ignorance to be found in the southern border states that is appalling and foreigners that understand American politics and issues far better than most Americans.

          All that said, anyone with a reasonable grasp on immigration issues understands the difference between a refugee and an illegal alien. Using the terms interchangeably either demonstrates ignorance or a repulsive callousness towards immigrants in general. Normally I don’t disparage the intellects of posters, given I am no genius by any means…though when one opens the door…

          Notoriously anti-illegal Arizona is one of the most welcoming states nationally of refugees. Though I suppose expecting people to make the distinction is expecting too much, eh Jack?

            The refugee ‘loophole’ has widened considerably, to where even Canada is closing their’s after so many illegal aliens changed their status to ‘political refugee’.

            Odd that AZ and NM with hundreds of thousands of acres of govt land wouldn’t petition the federal govt. to set a homesteading program on it.

            Other factors are the ‘racist’ assumption by Democrats that all ‘Hispanics’ support illegal immigration. In New Mexico, the first Hispanics arrived in the 1500’s and many were Jews fleeing the Spanish inquisition. Their extensive holdings and especially riparian rights have made them staunch opponents of uncontrolled illegal migration. Tribes also protect their land and water rights and without water there is no expansion.

            I rather like converting defense bases to civilian homesteading; 80%(?) of Alaska is owned by the Federal government.

          • End arounds and loopholes need to be closed certainly.

            I think part of the underlying problem in this country doesn’t even lie in the legality of the immigration, but the immigrants themselves – xenophobic, entitled nativists don’t want foreigners taking jobs and benefits that they supposedly deserve. Anti-Mexican bias extends far beyond just those who are here illegally.

            I don’t like the situation by any means, and believe that the solution lies in easier (but not too easy) paths to citizenship.

            Modern day homesteading sounds like a fine idea in theory, though I don’t know how well it would work out in practice – given the lifestyles most are accustomed to in this modern world. Alaska would make a tough place to live a self sufficient lifestyle, even for an experienced (modern day) outdoorsman. I can see homesteaders in over their heads needing bailed out.

    Might not have taken so much time and money if they had bothered to check on him when his ankle monitor went off at 12:46am! DUH

    • Anonymous

      I didn’t understand that either. Why have one if no one is checking the system until they get into the office at 8 AM with their morning coffee. Very encouraging for future ankle recipients.

    Who knows maybe he has dirt on someone and is in witness protection. Perhaps had plastic surgery for a new face. One never knows……..

      sorry I didn’t read your comment before posting the same thought.

    Most likely he is in Federal protection and they are just throwing stories out there to sedate the public.
    Think of the dirt he has on people, WOW!

      Just like the BP and Bear Stearns, (et al) executives do ?

    Question—Why was he allowed to be out on bail in the first place?? If this had been an ordinary working citizen he would never have seen the light of day–Just goes to show that the job you do really dosen’t “make the man” !

    I always thought if someone cut the ankle bracelet, alarms went off at the police station. So how did this guy get such a head start in escaping? Surely they knew the license tag numbers on all vehicles he had access to. If he didn’t take off in one of those, he went on foot. Bring in the hounds and follow the trail.

    • Anonymous

      That’s my point. If you read the first news story the monitor sounded at something like 12:40am. At 1:30am the device at the police station tried to connect to the monitor and failed. Between 7am and 8am they tried to call him and got no answer but it wasn’t until after 10am they decided to go and knock on his door. Why they didn’t investigate at 12:40am is beyond me.

          Just as likely he’s off shore in a bunch of bait bags. Sex offenders are often short on friends and long on enemies.

    It shouldn’t take a team of what I assume are seasoned U.S. Marshals and other police officers working around the clock to determine that without money or a passport that he likely is living in the woods in an area where he is familiar and feels safe. You’re welcome.

    While most of us should have no idea what to do to get away with having
    “with no passport or money”, the “state’s former top drug prosecutor” should know, and so has indeed gotten away.

    Opps.
    If drugs were legal, there would be no double dealing, dishonest drug cops.

    I keep saying they will find him “dead” if they ever find him. He probably jumped in the nearest lake and he’s sitting in his vehicle waiting to be discovered.

      I’m wondering if that’s why I saw a state dive team messing around in an old quarry today. Or do they do practice this time of year? They were there all day.

    I think he went to live on a farm in the country where there is fresh air and room for him to run and play with the other animals.

    Geez he’s been divorced 2 yrs and no mention of girl friends? Probably no one smart enough to tail one either!

    Two years to plan and make cash many ways to be done without even leaving your house–9 hour physical head start…Anywhere !! Well if he is found he can add a little more time to the sentences he get with the charge he is currently incurring with his run.

    Usually when you see people facing jail time go on the run they are criminals who are lets say, not so smart. This is a whole different story, obviously this guy is quite intelligent and driven, you don’t become a lawyer because your dumb. A person with his intelligence and background could potentially evade capture for an endless amount of time. He knows not to go back to familiar territory, which is where 99% of fugitives are captured. They might not go back for a year or even 5 years but eventually most fugitives will return to their “home base” and they are usually caught when doing so. I do not think the Marshall’s Service will find him unless he has committed suicide, which I doubt will happen but who knows. Think of all the territory in the wilderness where you could hide or on the flip side, he could be blending in while staying in a large city. It is much easier to blend in while in a big city versus a small town, contrary to what many believe. Everyone in a small town knows everyone and “new people” usually stick out like sore thumb and are scrutinized for a while. In a big city you can blend in with the crowds and not stick out, unless of course you have some unusual defining characteristic, such as being extremely tall or short, unusual visible tattoos, crazy hair, etc. I don’t think James Cameron fits any of those criteria and he looks like Mr. John Q. Public.

    Sex change & then move to N.H. and run for the Legislature. Relatively easy to get in and out of U.S. if you sail or hike. I know a lawyer in Vermont who defended drug dealers and growers for a long time; eventually he was indistinguishable from his clientele and became very knowledgeable in the many ways druggies escape prosecution and evade arrest.

    This man had it all and threw it away to indulge his sick sexual fantasies. I feel sad for his family having to deal with all this unwelcome media attention.
