    TULSA, Okla. (AP) — Prisoner Joshua Silverman passed up a taste of freedom this week and called the police instead.

    Silverman could have fled with two other inmates who stole the unattended transport van he was riding in, but he dialed 911 and alerted authorities about the escape.

    "Uh, yes, ma'am, you're probably not going to believe this, but I'm a prisoner in a van, and I'm here with a couple of these other cats," Silverman politely explained to the 911 operator Tuesday. "A couple of the guys that were in the van jacked the van ... at the hospital."

    Guards from a private prison transport company had stopped in Weatherford, about an hour west of Oklahoma City, to deliver some ill inmates to a hospital. They left eight other prisoners, including Silverman, in the van unsupervised.

    Dude's probably got very little left to serve. Smart move on his part to not add a bunch of time to his term by trying to run. Not like you can hide for very long.

    No, that is people who sit around and let criminals get away with serious offenses to humanity.

    I'm at a loss for words.

    Yeah, next time I'm serving my 3-5 year sentence and some idiot drag me along on a prison break, I won't rat on them because I should care about them....

    What world do you live in?

    You hate it because he did the right thing and did what any law abiding citizen should do. Seriously dude this is a head scratcher....so you are saying that he should always be a criminal?

    Spoken like a true Canadian. People who go to jail are the lowest of the low in our country, until proven innocent of course. If he didn't want to be a part of it I don't blame him because like someone else said what if his sentence was almost up? Why ruin that getting thrown right back in?

    They call the cops after a player on their favorite team is checked by a rival. The cops actually investigate!

    Strange place indeed....

    The guy was in for not paying child support. All he had to do was come up with some money and he was out. How much time would escaping add to that 5 years? Looks like he made a smart decision and should be housed where no one can retaliate.
