(Newser) – A prisoner in the UK who flew the coop in September isn’t keeping a low profile—instead, he’s got one on Facebook. Craig “Lazie” Lynch has been posting photos of himself flipping the bird at police as he sends messages to more than a thousand supporters, the Daily Mail reports. “I beat their f---n system and i love it,” he told fans. “I love you all.” Lynch was near the end of a 7-year term for burglary when he escaped.
