Facing hard time

If you spot Dustin Smith, 27, who escaped from the Edinburgh Correctional Facility, be sure to call authorities. You can't miss him, really:

Smith, a 5-foot, 9-inch white male with a shaved head and brown eyes, has facial tattoos that make his appearance distinctive. According to a release, he has a "tribal design" on the left side of his face and forehead. He also has a tribal tattoo on the back of his head.

My guess -- and it is only a guess, mind you -- is that someone who gets tattoos on his face has pretty much decided he doesn't care to fit into mainstream society. What do you think?

Nah, he's just a "misunderstood youth" that came from an abusive, poverty-stricken home, who killed the family cat when he was 4, burned down an outbuilding by gradeschool, and had several affairs with teachers, is miffed at the economy, global warming, and the war in Iraq, yet longed to join the circus, hence the tattoos, but I wouldnt exactly call him:
"not fitting in"...

Do you suppose the prison guards that made him a "trusty" have tattoos, too?

If anything, it appears their judgment is worse than his....
