Notes & Transcripts

Using a Popsicle stick and a razor blade, Carlos Garcia spent five months breaking the bar on his New Mexico jail cell and eventfully escaped. However, he had a change of mind and climbed back up the bed sheet and through the window into his second-story cell that he had just escaped from.

Garcia is a serious criminal, serving time for among other things, two murders. There isn’t much in this story that I can admire, except for his perseverance. I can’t imagine the work it took to use such simple tools to disable a bar that keeps a window locked in a jail cell. Yet, he wasted all that work by changing his mind and climbing back into bed. Sin carries with it, the seed to its own destruction. Even if he had escaped and avoided capture, he still wouldn’t be free because of condition of his heart–Jim L. Wilson
