Life Give That Murderer An Oscar

In the October 9 issue of The New Yorker, Mark Singer writes about the criminal adventures of Richard McNair, a convicted murderer who’s finagled a number of stunning escapes from U.S. prisons (and remains on the lam as I write this.)
The video above shows McNair working some of his criminal magic. Shot by a police officer’s dashboard camera, it shows McNair being questioned by Louisiana policeman Carl Bordelon, who received word of an escaped convict then found McNair running down the railroad tracks.
Despite having no ID, lying about his eye color, and giving two different names (first he’s Robert Jones, then Jimmy Jones), McNair talks his way out of it.
Enjoy, and if you see anyone resembling Richard McNair, call 911.
