N.Y. manhunt ends with second fugitive's capture, Cuomo says 'nightmare' is over

2 posts in this topic

CONSTABLE, N.Y., June 28 (UPI) -- Authorities on Sunday wounded and captured David Sweat -- the second prison escapee who had been on the run since June 6 -- and concluded an exhaustive three-week dragnet that involved nearly 1,500 police officers and, at times, spanned from New York to the U.S.-Canada border.

Hours later, New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo declared at a news conference that the "nightmare is finally over."

 

Police closed in on Sweat this weekend after discovering traces of his DNA near the site where his accomplice, Richard Matt, was shot dead on Thursday. With the help of a police helicopter and bloodhounds, officers finally caught up with Sweat in Constable, N.Y. on Sunday.

Funny how it took all this time to end it with all the  hi tech spy gear and several thousand police. Back when cops were real men, the kind who never needed to shoot senior citizens and pets, it would have required a couple of blood hounds a handler and maybe five men with a couple shotguns. How pathetic. The only nightmare is the one the people who were forced to submit to these losers.
