“Richard Matt, one of two escaped murderers from an upstate New York maximum-security prison, was shot and killed by officers involved in a massive three-week manhunt, three law enforcement sources said Friday,” reports ktla.com. According to cnn.com, Matt was spotted by a border patrol tactical team near the town of Malone. “A reported burglary led police to a cabin on Thursday in Malone, State Police spokesman Beau Duffy told CNN. Malone is about 14 miles northwest of Mountain View, where another cabin was burglarized.” One down, one to go.

  1. If he’d only know to yell “Don’t shoot we just want to get married. Its all love”.

    Obumer would have given them a prize.

    • Sorry, it was an unregistered 20 gauge shotgun. Police said we told him to put his hands up and he refused so we killed him.

  2. This was part of the dark half of the plan. You didn’t think either of them intended to be taken back alive, did you? Ida Lupino over Mad Dog Earle’s body ” what does it mean to crash out?” It means your free.

  3. I wonder if he was killed by an officer with a NY defined assault weapon. I hear they are terrible for self defense, underpowered for hunting, over powered for everything else and scary looking. I would hate to learn he was scared while being shot.

    • Would it just break your f—- heart?

      That guy was one bad dude. There was little doubt that he wasn’t going to be taken alive.
      You can bet he made sure of it and the cops knew that was coming.

  4. Are you sure this isn’t part of the weekend photo contest? “He was just turning his life around”…

  5. “probably had his hands up” .” probably shot him down like a dog”.” probably shot him in the back”
    . good,
    great,
    fantastic.
    should have been on death row and executed a long time ago.
    likewise his cohort.

  6. The one to go will be killed too. The Complex doesn’t want any testimony to how the prison was run.

  7. You just know if it wasn’t the New York State Police who took him out, they are just livid about it.

  8. One down, one to go. Too bad, as these clowns provided first class entertainment along with the Keystone Cops.

  9. I’m glad it was a BorTac team that got him, and not the state police. I imagine he might’ve been taken down earlier if Cuomo had kept his fingers out of it.

  10. Evaded capture while hiding out in a cabin used by the prison guards. Manhunt involving tens of thousands of police from multiple jurisdictions over a three week period. Could not find him. Citizen finds him. Now, don’t you feel much safer knowing that only the police and military should be armed?

  11. Look at the money saved now that he’s room temperature. Brutal murderers like this one should just be put down.

  12. Good riddance to bad rubbish. Hopefully his fellow escapee will get the same treatment. Then there will be two fewer worthless scumbags to live on American tax dollars for life.

    • Yeah, but unfortunately it looks like there will be at least two prison employees taking their places. And I’d have them serve the same sentences these two swine were serving.
