Give Him a Hand

Osceola County (Fla.) Jail officers were perplexed by a banging noise at 4:05 a.m. coming from the cell blocks. It took awhile, but they tracked the banging down to the cell of Hector Luis Campos, 22, who was being held on a burglary charge. “He had been punching the brick” with his fist, said a sheriff’s spokeswoman, and was allegedly trying to make a hole big enough to escape through. He didn’t manage to do create a hole, but “his hand is very sore right now.” Campos was charged with attempted escape. (RC/Orlando Sentinel) ...He never listens. His dad told him time and time again, “Use your head, dummy!”
