This really goes to show how even in a small town in Minnesota there can be "terrorist" plots right next door.  Privacy compromisation is okay if the government may stop things like this.

 

Tanner Schatzel's comment, May 19, 2013 10:05 AM
I think that it is amazing that there are terror plots even in little towns. You would think that you could find them in the big cities but you would not think to find them in small towns. It is good that they found it before it actually happened. This raid could have saved many lives.

I found this enjoyable because the prison must be pretty "low security" to have two 60+ year olds just waltz on out of the camp and hide out for six days.

Tanner Schatzel's comment, May 19, 2013 10:01 AM
I find it hard to believe that people can just escape prison with all of the the technology that we have today. It should be a lot harder to escape from prison. He is old also which means he should not be as strong and cunning as people half his age.
