A French nutter

Sometimes my blogospheres overlap. As in this case, a tale of Christian wickedness from my adopted France. I'm surprised Mojoey hasn't got here first!

The daring prison break of Juliano Verbard, who was serving 15 years, and two other men 10 days ago was the stuff of TV drama as accomplices flew over the Reunion prison in a helicopter and hoisted them aboard.

Police said the fugitives were hiding in a house when arrested. Juliano Verbard and seven others were caught in a building in the island's capital, Saint-Denis. Police said 50 officers were involved in the operation, AFP news agency reported.

Here's the kicker: Verbard, the leader of the pseudo-religious cult, the Sorrowful and Immaculate Heart of Mary, was jailed in 2008 for rape and sex attacks on children, and the other two for their roles in a kidnap.
