This tool forgot to check what type of garbage truck was hauling the trash. Most of what I’ve seen here in El Paso are the compactor type. Well at least he gets to go back to Mexico!

there was flaw in the way trash was disposed of at the jail

Could someone fill me in. I just don't see the flaw.

Oops! Guess he forgot that it’s a garbage *compacter* too. Talk about a Darwin Award winner! He must have been really really upset for the last few seconds of his life, when he saw the inevitable coming towards him.

I guess they just can’t leave him where they found him, eh...

Hehehehe... For some reason I picture a bunch of swords welded to the crusher plates (if that's what they're called).

Next time he crosses back into the US, it’ll be on your lettuce and spinach!

Well, it WAS a safety hazard (one prisoner might stuff another one down the chute of the old system, and as pointed out not all there are even convicted of crimes, let alone things like murder).

I have seen compactors in action at large retailers,etc..It is usually just a flate plate affixed to a large hydraulic ram;there is a relief valve that sets the maximum compression force so the ram or the container won't be damaged.They are also rather noisy due to the large electric motor/hydraulic pump ,so that a person's screams might not be heard.The pressure is usually sufficient to squish all the air and empty space out of the trash but not really condense solid objects.

I would expect any person hiding inside the trash to die of suffocation and probably also have bruised internal organs,broken ribs,and dislocated joints.This assumes he was hiding amongst a bunch of the usual cardboard boxes,etc. If a person was the ONLY item in the container when it was cycled the results would resemble roadkill.

I used large garbage systems for years and there are a couple of problems with this story. I can’t imagine a place the size of a jail with anything less than one of those twenty foot long roll-offs and a compactor. So I looked it up. The ram peaks at 49,000 psi. I never knew that, but I did throw oak pallets and other things in there to see what the ram would do to them. The ram always won.

I don’t know anyone who underestimated the power of one of those things, especially after they spent some time shoving five tons of stuff into one and watching the ram make it fit. Anyone who was not sure how they got the trash out of there could see it when they rolled the replacement container off the truck. If you were in there when they opened the door and tipped the container, you would get ten thousand pounds of trash dumped on your head.

Maybe this guy was really that stupid. We have Darwin Awards for a reason. But I have to question the “security flaw” mentioned in the news story. If they’re just trying to prevent an escape, all they need to do is put a picture of this guy next to the compactor. He did not “escape.”

But what if someone put him in there? If he was subdued or forced into the compactor, any injuries he sustained would be concealed by injuries caused by the ram, or by the five tons of trash that dropped on top of him. If he was killed and then later put in there, they could see that. But if he was alive and someone else put him in there to kill him, it would be almost impossible to prove it.

So is the policy now for a guard to accompany the inmates when they dump the trash?

There have been a few escapes in compactor systems that were successful. One used 4 by 4’s cut to 16-18” to protect himself; I’m not sure that the ram really went all the way home. Pretty bold, but lifers can be quite desperate.

Most prison sally ports now attach a heartbeat detector ( earthquake rescue technology) to every vehicle leaving the compound.
