Hostage Freed in Arizona Corrections Department Standoff



Back in 2006, the Judge should have listened to Timothy Monk when he said “I shall return.” Those words were spoken at his sentencing him to 28 more years of his already 97 year sentence for a litany of violent crimes, most recently for kidnapping and sexual assault of a female prison employee.

This time, Monk took a library staff member hostage inside the library with a prison made knife. The response team was able to cause Monk some issues with gas and ultimately entered after a concussion device was deployed and the hostage was freed unharmed in a pretty tense situation.

So glad tax dollars keep this guy around *eyeroll.
