I think the timing of his capture was fortunate, in that his fugitive ass didn't screw up Halloween for area kids. I do note that his face does look pretty scraped up. The story has it that:
Frein, flanked by state troopers who easily wrapped their hands around his slim arms, was paraded publicly in front of the courthouse following his arraignment before District Judge Shannon Muir. Cuts to his nose and a bruised left eye were injuries Bivens said were not inflicted by law enforcement, but by life on the run in the dense wood of the Poconos.If the boy had killed one cop and injured another in Philly, we'd not be surprised if he bounced around a bit in the paddy wagon. But I have reason to think the troopers had good reason to truly not do that-they want his conviction. In any case, he isn't seeing life as a free man, again. And peace of mind is returned to that area and especially to families of troopers who feared he'd open fire on PA police search teams. I think it's good that there was a clean capture so we can hear what he has to say for himself.
Not that I'm looking to understand his misunderstandings.
