Tallahassee, Florida - April 12, 2011

A registered sex offender tries to escape at a Tallahassee McDonald's but doesn't get far.

38 year old Daid Shuey - who is serving a life sentence for sexual assault and kidnapping - was being transported from Blackwater CI to St. Johns County, when officers made a stop in Tallahassee for breakfast.

Joe Marsala, with U.S. Prison Transport, says when the officers opened the car door, Shuey threw a water bottle at them and tried to make a run for it. He was nabbed right there in the parking lot.

    and he had the nerve to stop by the drive thru window and order a hot coffee and hot cakes with extra butter before he ran with the shackles on his feet

    Why do they only report part of the story? Troy in Perry is correct in all that he says. And guess what when DC employees transport they do their best to get from point A to point B quickly so as not to incur overtime, to save the state (taxpayers) money. Additionally, to everyone that wants to assume that all state workers are fat, lazy, and do not earn their money, WALK A DAY in their shoes. Every industry, job, everywhere has slackers and rude people, but not everyone falls into that catergory. I am tired of hearing all the negative things about state workers. Who do you call upon in times of need, state workers who are unappreciated! Many state workers are on the job 24/7, on holidays, during natural disasters (hurricanes, tornadoes, floods, fires), and crisis (murder, rape, etc) but yet nobody has a positive thing to say about a state worker. I really wish that every state worker could walk out for a week and then see how important these lazy, overweight, etc workers are?

    Just so you know it was a PRIVATE Company not a State Institution that was Transporting the Inmate. If you work for the State Prison System you are not aloud to stop any where except the receiving Institution, unless it’s to get Fuel and any other real emergencies. We would get fired if we stopped at McDonalds with an Inmate in the Van. Also note they were in a CAR not a Van or Bus. Why??? Because they are a PRIVATE Company and don’t have Money for Vans. And they want to Privatize the State Prison System. Hmmm

    WHAT THIS ARTICLE FAILS TO MENTION IS THAT THESE WERE NOT DEPARTMENT OF CORRECTIONS OFFICERS, THEY WORK FOR A PRIVATE CONTRACT COMPANY CALLED US PRISON TRANSPORT AND THE INMATE WAS PICKED UP FROM A PRIVATE PRISON IN THE PANHANDLE. IF THIS WOULD HAD BEEN A TRANSPORT WITH REAL DOC OFFICERS, I PROMISE, THEY WOULD NOT HAVE BEEN GETTING MCDONALD'S AND THE VAN DOORS SURE WOULD NOT BE OPENED OUTSIDE OF THE SECURE PERIMETER OF A PRISON OR JAIL. COME ON RICK SCOTT, THIS SAYS A LOT ABOUT PRIVATE RUN PEOPLE TRYING TO DEAL WITH INMATES, THEY DONT HAVE A CLUE!

    If the lazy/overweight staff wasn't spending work hours filling their fat faces with greasy food this guy wouldn't have even had a chance to escape.

        I am with ya mark. people have to eat. so cheese these transports can last up to 21 hours or more so you try it and see if you don't get hungry. but maybe next time they will just hit the drive thru.

      let me tell you something lip cheese, my husband is a correctional officer and their jobs are very hard and dangerous. they are not lazy. they dont spend their work hours filling their (fat) faces. they dont get a lunch break so they grab grub when they can. and when ur on transport like that, sometimes it is for hours at a time so they deserve to stop and pick up some food. you have no right to comment like that unless you have been there yourself!

    Well of all the nerve. Breakfast at McDonalds is not that bad. He could at least drink some coffee.
