[ laughter ] >> i ne-- i never looked at it that way, but-- >> well, i don't know that that's true. >> that's kind of a sad ending, though, to know that you're digging three months, aney know it, and, uh-- how-- >> well, you-- >> how close were they? they were almost, uh-- >> yeah, they had about, i think-- from what i read in the paper-- ten-t-- i thought it was kinda ironic they-they dug under the gas chamber. there's somethin' about that that i thought was kind of ironic, but-- it's-- >> you were in san quentin. you were also in folsom. >> at folsom. >> did you ever try to dig out, uh-- >> well, i escaped from folsom. >> that's right. you were the-- one of the few people who got out of folsom. >> yeah, i'm the only one that ever escaped, as a maximum-security prisoner. well, i went through a tunnel. but i let the state dig it for me.
and i just used it. [ laughter ] >> but you really feel that they probably-- now, will they get extra time, for something like that? >> oh, yeah, they'll get extra time. they're probably-- you know, i did five years in solitary, for-for escaping. and i would imagine they're-- >> but they didn't escape. >> w-well, i-- it's-- doesn't make any difference. if you try, they really get upset. i told you, once, i thought-- [ laughter ] escaping is the worst crime that you can commit in prison. killin' the warden's second. [ laughter ] of their se-- [ laughter ] you mean, they're so proud of their security, that-- >> they really-- they really get upset, when you escape. >> right. >> so, you spent an additional five years. >> well, i spent five years in solitary, for that. and then, uh-- then, about 10 more years, after that, to-- you know, trying to convince-- >> boy. >> yeah, i know-- trying to convince 'em that i was a good guy, and-- >> but, at-- when you were at folsom, you went through a-- was it a ventilator shaft or something like that? >> no, i went through
built in the 1800s, and they had forgot it was there. and-and i, uh-- >> have they taken care of that, now? you know? >> oh, yeah. t-to this day, they have-- it's painted, uh, silver, and it's got big restriction marks on it, and if you step-step one foot on that grate, they'll kill ya. i mean, that-- you know. and i'm also in the department of corrections' manual. if i live forever, it'll be in the department of corrections' manual, as, you know, the classical escape-- what to watch for and all those-- >> did when you were out, right? >> yeah. i-- well, mostly r-- armed robbery. >> armed robbery. >> i mean-- but, you know. [ laughter ] >> i'm s-- i'm sorry. excuse me. >> i, uh-- >> no, no. now, don't you see? >> you know, i spread it out, a little bit. i mean, i-- >> yeah. you did-- now, today, everything is, like, electronics. they use all the sophisticated, uh, electronic detection gear. did you do anything like that, or did you just go in and say, "hi, there?" >> well, there was one robbery i pulled, and they had really good security, and i couldn't, you know, figure out how to get
>> of course. [ laughter ] >> so, i finally had 'em ship me-- i had some friends, you know, that i worked with, at this time, and they shipped me there, in a packing crate. and-- >> whaddya mean? they shipped you? >> yeah. i had a-- you know, like it was merchandise, and that got me through everything. and i had 'em put all kinda "fragile" stickers and-and "this side up--" >> you went in in a box. >> yeah. [ laughter ] >> "no hooks." you know, i didn't want 'em to kill me. >> yeah. >> you know how they handle freight. >> of course. >> and, uh-- so, they shipped me in, and, uh, then they wheeled me through all the securitnd then they went to open the box, and i said, "hi." [ laughter ] you know, "stick 'em up." and it was really kinda neat. [ laughter ] uh. [ applause ] >> how-how did they catch ya, on that one, now? >> to tell you the truth, they didn't catch me. the-- but, see, the statue of limitations is over. i only got caught three times, and, uh, uh, three times is more than enough. >> yeah. >> but-but that's all i got caught, was three times.
no, i only admit to the things that i am absolutely certain they can't do anything to me about. >> right. >> i mean, you know, there's some things that i wouldn't talk about, because who knows. >> yeah. i don't-- i don't mean to put you on the spot, now, or embarrass you, but have you ever had the urge to, you know-- >> uh-- >> do-do something-- fall back and say, uh-- try the old packing case trick again, or anything like that? >> n-not the-- not the urge. uh, i think it's-- you know, it's kinda like an old prize fighter or something. you-- when you see something, you know. >> right. >> uh, i, uh-- [ laughter ] i-i don't think i'll ever-- you know, would ever do anything again, but i'm a looker. i-i look a lot, and, uh-- >> well, that's okay. >> and p-- and part of the-- part of the-- my work, now, is to-- is to look and try to find, uh, ways that, you know, i can help businesses not be robbed. so, in a sense, uh, i'm still looking, but for a different reason. >> right. have you got a new program going, now, at the, uh-- >> yeah, we're doing, uh, the robbery prevention program.
all over the country, in the 7-eleven stores, and we're now beginning to work with other-other corporations-- uh, convenience stores, uh-- you know, retail outlets that are having a tremendous, uh, you know, robbery problem. and we-we have hope that this is going to help. it's already had a 30% reduction, nationally. and, uh, i am going into a thing, at the institute with kids. i'm really concerned about-- you know, like 13-, 14-, 15-year-old kids-- >> right. >> are just-- god, the violence are-- it's terrible. and so, we're gonna tr p and teach in school, uh, the cops and robbers game, that maybe, uh-- maybe some of these kids will choose a different alternative. >> stop it before it really gets started. >> yeah, before they get in, like i did and, you know. >> all right. >> to-- >> well, you're gonna stay cool. >> i hope so. >> we'll be right back.
