|This is the talk page for discussing improvements to the Prison escape article.|
|It has been suggested (although it's not clear by whom) that this article be split into articles entitled List of prison escapes accessible from a disambiguation page. What are your thoughts on the matter? Don't say you don't have any! Come on, make sure to voice them, because we can all benefit from your feedback. Keep in mind that many famous examples exist, and such a page could be very interesting and rich with information. If you don't believe it, just see the length and variety of the list below and you'll understand. Impressive, isn't it? Yes, you don't have to deny it, it is. Just the other day I was thinking of a few extra examples we could add as well, and I'm pretty sure you can come up with more of your own. So let's get busy and draft something; such a list can become a worthy and valuable article. And when I say valuable, I really do mean a hell of an article. I'm not the kind of editor who settles for less, and I'm pretty sure, dear reader, that you aren' either. I know, I know - you must be thinking: "but what if, even if I try my hardest, it turns out a mediocre article?" Well, that's the fear of the perfectionist, so I say, try not to worry so much in advance and enjoy the effort. Of course, everything added to that new entry must be referenced, and a strict NPOV stance is a must. True, sometimes this is difficult, but it's certainly possible, especially when several editors actively collaborate together. So what do you say? Are you up to the task? If your answer is "yes", let's discuss it. Go ahead and don't be shy! Remember, you must be bold!|
Move to prison escape
"Jailbreak" is an informal term. Can someone please move the content to prison escape (which currently redirects here). 184.108.40.206 05:05, 10 February 2006 (UTC)
This article blows...
The historical section that describes certain prison breaks and how they occured can be useful in learning about how that escapee managed to escape (for fun, not for information! :) so although not technically part of the Escapees category it does belong there in principle. --SMK 11:36, 23 June 2006 (UTC)
Is the Wooden Horse escape ( Book by Eric Williams, also film) famous enough to be included?. RalphHinton 17:26, 15 December 2006 (UTC) There is also the recent escape where the man used grease on his body to get through a narrow gap. It might be relevant here or in escapees?.

Some statistics of the number or prison escapes per year would be helpful
Maybe in the US, or by state. Malamockq 21:27, 4 April 2007 (UTC)
Gentle Johnny Ramensky's story involves prison escapes and deserves a summary and link here. I'm new to this so don't know how it all works.
In New York State Law there is no term prison escape. The correct terms are escape from custody and escape from a detention facility.. The article should be called something like ESCAPE AND OTHER OFFENSES RELATING TO CUSTODY as it seems WP is using a slang rather than correct term for the article title. Perhaps other juristictions (US states, countries, UN) have different terms than NYS. Either way I think the article should use the correct legalese. —Preceding unsigned comment added by Geo8rge (talk • contribs) 13:35, 15 June 2008 (UTC)
- This article is primarily about the act of escaping from prison, not the laws prohibiting it. 220.127.116.11 (talk) 01:15, 7 November 2009 (UTC)
you should mention public enemies in the pop culture section and i was wondering if Harry houdini ever escaped a prison as a trick. I remember that happened in the movie about him from a long time ago and was wondering if it was true. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 18.104.22.168 (talk) 17:02, 18 December 2010 (UTC)
Timothy Leary - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia As a result, Leary was assigned to work as a gardener in a lower security prison, and in September 1970 he escaped. Leary claimed his non-violent escape was ... —Preceding unsigned comment added by 22.214.171.124 (talk) 22:51, 9 March 2011 (UTC)
