Officer and Inmate’s Horrid ‘End Game’ Revealed After Apprehension

This would have been AWFUL.

For eleven days, the nation was on edge.

Vicky White and Casey White, no relation, were still on the run, having ditched and stolen a number of vehicles already, the corrections officer and her inmate lover were in Evansville, Indiana when authorities finally confronted them.

What ensued was a short car chase, followed by the fugitives’ being rammed and flipped.  It was at that moment that Vicky chose to end her own life with a bullet.

But, had the car not flipped, the pair had an audacious plan.

Casey White, the Alabama fugitive who escaped a county jail allegedly with the help of a senior corrections employee, told officers he likely would have engaged in a shootout with law enforcement had the pair’s vehicle not crashed, officials said Tuesday.

Vicky White was driving a Cadillac on Monday evening as the pair allegedly tried to evade law enforcement who had been surveilling the Evansville, Indiana, Motel 41, where the couple had been staying. They led police on an approximately mile-long pursuit before U.S. Marshals “basically rammed the vehicle and pushed it into a ditch,” Vanderburgh County Sheriff Dave Wedding told reporters.

The day could have ended in bloodshed.

“We later found out had they not done that, the fugitive was going to engage in a shootout with law enforcement,” Vanderburgh said, explaining that Casey White had admitted his intentions during a subsequent police interview. “He said that he was probably going to have a shootout at the stake of both of them losing their lives.”

He added: “Their plan was pretty bold. They’re criminals. Their plan was faulty. And it failed. Thank God.”

Vicky White died at the hospital after being extricated from the wreckage.  She had shot herself in the head.

Casey White will be extradited to Alabama post-haste, where he is likely to face additional charges stemming from his escape.

US Air Force Reveals Successful Hypersonic Missile Test

This could put the US back in the driver’s seat as far as missile tech goes.

Much like the global arms races that came before, the superpowers of the world are now looking to add a terrifying new doomsday machine to their arsenals in 2022:  Hypersonic missiles.

The missiles, which could be loaded with nuclear or traditional munitions, fly several times faster than the speed of sound and are said to be unstoppable by current defense technologies.  (The US has played coy with this claim, however, suggesting that our nation is well-defended against them).

Russia and China already possess such weapons.  North Korea keeps insisting that they do too, but the claim is dubious.

The United States, who previously admitted that they were a bit behind in developing these projectiles, made a major announcement on the subject this week.

UPI reports a B-52H Stratofortress aircraft successfully released a AGM-1831 Air-launched Rapid Response Weapon (ARRW) over the weekend that achieved speeds five times greater than the speed of sound.

The test was conducted somewhere off the coast of Southern California, it said.

“This was a major accomplishment by the ARRW team for the weapons enterprise and our Air Force,” Brig. Gen. Heath Collins, Air Force program executive officer for weapons, said in a statement.

“The team’s tenacity, expertise and commitment were key in overcoming the past year’s challenges to get us to the recent success.”

The news comes just months after China secretly test launched a hypersonic missile that circumnavigated the globe before hitting its target.
