Exclamation Playing Games = Banning --The Nordmann Prison Escape Hoax by GHOTI - "On the Lam!"

**UPDATE**
This was a hoax apparently played by two now banned members of this community.
Please scroll through to page 2, post #24 for details.


------------------------

Well, this is weird. While in the county lockup, I got curious on my way back from Bible study, and ducked into an "employees only" vestibule whose door had been left ajar. So then I heard footsteps out in the corridor, and to avoid being seen I ducked through a second door that closed and locked behind me. This second room turned out to be a control room of sorts that looked over a small parking area with a razor-ribbon-topped gate at the end. There were guard uniforms hanging up and a big key on a panel next to the door that opened onto the lot. I don't know what came over me, but I tried the key and the gate opened up, so I grabbed a uniform and bolted! For obvious reasons, I won't say where I am or how I got here, but I am out of the country, and it looks like I won't be doing my time to speak of, after all.

Oops! Gotta run now!

You have got to be kidding, really, no way. OMG Prayers and best wishes going up for you dear.
I am thinking somehow you got online or someone posted this for you, in which case you are not seeing this anyway.
Really funny though!!!LOL

Do you think there's a possibility he was never really in? and was just playing us all....

My personal opinion (while in a really bad mood for the record) is that whether this is true or not.... it's only a ploy for attention.

If he did actually take off, he's a total idiot.

He'll never see his kids again. He'll never talk to them again. He'll never be able to help financially and he just left his family totally hanging. That means all of that stuff he said before was all crap.

Not to mention coming on here and posting makes him trackable AND puts LASO at risk in some way I'm sure. I have a feeling that LE would love an excuse to shut us down. It also violates LASO's rule of "not promoting illegal activity" I'm sure.

There are people on this board who know him and can verify whether he took off I'm sure. You would think it would make the news.

If he didn't take off and had someone do this, then he's just looking for attention and that's an incredibly immature thing to do.

I have little tolerance for people who come onto a place like this and act stupid. New members could easily come read this post and think that we all condone someone escaping. You can not read sarcasm or joking on the internet, so this comes across as true and serious. Whether it is or not.

I have even less tolerance for those who completely mess with people's heads. Which it is entirely possible he has done. I do think there were people who verified his identity and charges, were there not?

I'm sure we will find the truth soon. If it's true someone will be able to verify it. Either way, my opinion of him just dropped several notches.

Nordmann somehow you are trying to be funny or you never had a charge. You deserve to do your time because of the crime you did. But hey I guess to each his own.

Baddreams his stories never added up so I never "believed" he was going anywhere. I do think that some people did fall hook line and sinker but hey that's just me.

Thumper there are several people who have doubted his honesty from the beginning.

However, if he never had a charge then he is one disturbed individual to be able to write some of the things that he did.

I have not slept well at all for months, but its finally catching up with me...I am actually feeling not so bad today and I only have about 2 more months till my son gets out...so the time is getting easier. I wish he could come home but since he is on misdemeanors he doesn't qualify to be allowed an interstate compact..long story but I am feeling really foolish right now for even thinking there was a shred of decency in this guy. (musta been a very small shred but now its verified..no shred at all)

Its a slap in the face to those of us who are really waiting on our loved ones.

I believe he had a case and is sitting in jail as we speak.
Afterall, wasn't he a computer genius. I'm more apt to believe that he had a friend do that message.

C'mon a control room with uniforms in it-now that makes no sense. Left unattended?. I get my news from NY and things like that make the news and it has not. Especially his charges.

Don't believe it for a minute.

I don't think it was a friend. I don't believe his story for a minute. I think he was just looking for a way to come back and cover his butt and I knew he'd have a stupid off the wall story for how he got out.

True, but many posting on LASO, have been betrayed, and its difficult to trust again. So its a real slap that will leave a lasting sting.

At this time I am going to restore this thread and give some details as to what has transpired with what is clearly a hoax.

As many of you pointed out correctly, rare is the time that a prison or jail break / escape takes place that it doesn't make at least the local news. Obviously, this one didn't, which was suspect in addition to the story just not sounding very plausible.

PTO staff are not here to fact check everyone's story, background, history, etc, but this clearly wouldn't have been good for PTO - having someone on the run & talking about it here - so we removed this thread until we could figure a few things out.

Any time a post is made the IP address of the person making the post is recorded. This may or may not match up to the registration IP address or previous post IP's. Obviously, the first thing we are going to do is pull up the IP address for the first post in this thread and both track it's geographical location, as well as cross reference it with all the other IP addresses in PTO's system.

Guess what we found? Nordmann wasn't on the "lam" outside of the country... He wasn't at his home computer or that of a friends.. That is because Nordmann (Erik) was still in jail (I called and confirmed it with the intake officer) and the person that was using his account was a member here by the name of "GHOTI", who is now Erik's pen-pal.

If the IP's were not enough, I received an email from GHOTI (Bill) in response to my inquiry about the situation. It is as follows:

Subject: Re: Motivation to pull a hoax at PTO? On the lam...

David,

While I appreciate your invitation to enlighten you as to why I chose this way to leave PTO, three forum members already know the reason. I don't find it necessary for you to be added to their number. You did the job I required of you (you are nothing if not thoroughly predictable), and I thank you for that. You really helped more than you may ever know.

I will be emailing one of your members with Erick's message asking me to post his silly little "prison break" story. There was, likewise, a reason (I assume) he wanted me to pass that on, word for word. But, again, you do not need to know. If she chooses to share that email, fine. If not, that's OK too.

Bill
If there was any doubt at all to GHOTI's part in this hoax, he cleared it up.

Personally, I feel his games are the act of a coward, not to mention someone that could care less about the other people in this community - especially the members that were his friends or held him in some type of regard. It sounds like he wanted to be banned, so rather than just stop coming to PTO or ask to have his account closed, he felt the need to try and manipulate a situation so that we would take action? If me being "thoroughly predictable" includes banning someone for playing games like this at PTO, I guess I am.

Whatever his motives or reasoning, I don't really care, but we don't take hoaxes and game playing here lightly...

David

Wow. Of all the people I thought might have done this Ghoti was never one I suspected. Not at all. It's gonna be different here without him but he did pick a weird way to leave us. Thanks for letting us know.
