A Little Truth to Volume 1 of The Chronicles of Young Dmitry Medlov

flatecover-4Some of my readers have expressed to me that forging documents and getting out of a maximum facility prison (in Russia) seems highly unlikely.  And as you remember, Dmitry did just that to get his freedom when he was barely 18 with the help of outside Vory v Zakone members.  I had actually gotten the information after researching bribes that had been made in Russian right before the fall of the USSR.  Well, today in reading some Internet news, I found an article that supports my story (in America) that I’d love to share with you.

Authorities are searching for two men who they say were mistakenly released from a Florida prison earlier this year.

ORLANDO, Fla. — Authorities say two men convicted on murder charges were mistakenly released from a Florida prison with forged documents.

The Orange County Sheriff’s Office says Joseph Jenkins and Charles Walker were released separately from a prison in the Florida Panhandle in late September and early October. The Florida Department of Law Enforcement learned about the mistake Tuesday.

Walker was serving a life sentence on a second-degree murder conviction. Jenkins was serving a prison sentence for a 1998 first-degree murder conviction. According to the sheriff’s office, both convictions stemmed from crimes committed in Orange County.

The Florida Department of Corrections says the men were released based on forged documents filed with the court to alter their sentences.

State and local authorities are searching for the men and investigating how they got released.


Most Dangerous State in the Country: Tennessee



Staggering Stats:

1. Tennessee

> Violent crimes per 100,000: 643.6

> Poverty rate: 17.9%

> Pct. of population with bachelor’s degree or higher: 24.3%

> Property crimes per 100,000: 3,371.4 (10th highest)

Tennessee has the dubious distinction of having the worst violent crime rate in the country. The state was among the top 10 in the country for murders and robberies and was first for aggravated assaults, with an estimated 479.6 for every 100,000 residents. Tennessee’s 41,550 violent crimes in 2012 were up 6.8% from 2011 but down 10% from 2007, when there were 46,380 violent crimes. There were 388 murders in the state in 2012, up for a second straight year. To be fair, Tennessee’s violent streak is concentrated in some of the major metropolitan areas. Memphis‘s violent crime rate was the nation’s fifth worst, while Nashville’s was the 18th worst. Like many states with high violent crime, poverty in Tennessee is acute, and high school and college graduation rates are lower than most of the country.
