French Gangster escapes Jail for a Second Time in a Helicopter



Redoine Faid, probably the most notorious French gangster, has escaped jail for the 2nd time, this time in a helicopter.

According to Telegraph, Faid escaped with the help from 3 heavily-armed accomplices while he was being visited by his brother.

Two of the men reportedly burst into the visiting room while the third waited in the prison courtyard and watched over the helicopter pilot, a flying instructor whose chopper the men hijacked in a nearby airfield.

The men, according to Dailymail, used smoke bombs and angle grinders on the wardens to aide their escape.

Faid’s first escape from jail back in 2013 had been less dramatic, featuring the use of dynamites instead.

      France is not USA. There is no birthright to the land. There are many legal and illegal residents in fact…and him being Algerian by origin, makes it even more likely he is not French.

      It doesn’t even look like his parents raised good kids. His brother is also a jailbird…

      On the other hand, because you were born in England, and speak English birthed to Nigerian parents…doesn’t make you English….you get my drive

      I bet you would proudly claim him as French if he won a Nobel or an Oscar or something noteworthy. Hypocrites

    I don’t know if France has the law where you can’t profit off your crimes. If they don’t, I would definitely reach out to this guy to get a book or movie made.

    this is a real life Tom and Jerry
