The Nation : Inmates Brag of Breakout

Three inmates who escaped Thursday from a South Carolina prison via helicopter with the help of a woman, stole a car at gunpoint, bragged about their breakout and vowed they would not be taken alive, authorities said. The four, including a convicted murderer, were last seen early in the morning at a motel in Mobile, Ala., by a motorist whose car they commandeered, FBI agent Steve Tidwell said. The motorist, who was unharmed, told authorities that the fugitives bragged of their escape and said they would not be taken alive, Tidwell said. "We still consider them armed and dangerous," he said.
