Hunt is on for mistakenly freed murderers

State and federal police fanned out across Florida on Friday in search of two murderers who walked out of prison after documents bearing forged signatures resulted in their release, authorities said.

Meanwhile, the state Department of Corrections said it was merely following a court order and no one in the department is at fault for the men's release.

"It's our responsibility to carry out the order of the court. It's not our job to question what the court does," said department spokeswoman Misty Cash. "We were given the info from the court that their sentence was modified, and we did our role."

      Marisol. You're new here. People on here do not like all this foreign aid going to other countries. Quite frankly it's disgusting when we have So many problems here at home. I made a statement and you insulted me. Play nicely please

      They also have a way of messing with numeric numbers. I said my ins premiums just went up fourty three percent on top of the fourty percent increase from last year. Get used to it folks. This is just the beginning

      Now these increases no longer affect me personally as I have recently got VA benefits. THANK GOD. These severe increases will have an adverse effect on people and their families however. I give it a year before most of you feel the pain as well. I'm keeping politricks out of it as the ACA is the law of the land. Takin money out of working tax paying people's check will not go over well. It never does

      I see what you mean. They won't let me answer you. EMTALA had a lot to do with the insurance raises in the last 30 years.

    I love Florida. Their exacting attention to law and order and the judicial system is second to none.

    Rather easy it seems for convicted murderers to walk out of jail in Fl. Yes authorities there should get their act together.

    A mistake, eh? And we should of course just take their word for it, too. Self-regulation NEVER works in the long run.

    STUPID EXCUSE'S: While I can understand following the courts orders, these 2 had LIFE + 100YRS! A simple telephone call could have prevented this!

    Are WE sure Florida is really part of the US? They seem an awful lot like some third world country.

    And for their next trick, they will acquire guns. It's a good thing that guns don't kill people.

    Tax cuts and slashed spending is fine. Raising revenue needs to happen also. We need to pay what we owe, and to do that we need revenue.

    I find it weird that nobody ever says a word about overspending when the President has a (R) behind his name.
