MICHIGAN CITY, Ind. - Police and prison guards aided by search dogs hunted Sunday for two convicted killers and a third man who escaped the maximum-security Indiana State Prison, apparently through underground tunnels and pipes.
All three men were considered dangerous, and prison officials used a telephone notification system to send alerts to nearby residents and others. It was not known if any of the men had weapons.
Authorities identified the men as Charles Smith, 48, and Mark Booher, 46, both of New Castle, and Lance Battreal, 45, of Rockport. Smith and Booher were convicted of murder in the 1990s. Battreal was serving time for rape. All three faced at least 30 more years behind bars.

thought they said, theres never been a break out in US maximum security, so we should put terrorist there
How do “murders” escape anything? Oh, maybe they meant “murderers”. Idiots.
I must have missed the news report that the warden and the guards on duty in the cell block have been fired.
S.O.S. (Shoot On Sight)
To be fair, I think the argument was that there has never been an escape from Supermax. Which is, I believe, 100% true (of course, we still shouldn't be bringing terrorists on to our soil - no need to turn prisons into targets - but the "no one has escaped" argument is a true statement, at least).
