Convicted Murderer Who Attempted Escape From Racine Prison Is Evers (D) Parolee Awaiting Trial For Armed Robbery From Last Year

Lorenzo Guyton and WI Governor Tony Evers (D)

A 51-year-old violent convicted murderer who is alleged to have attempted escape last weekend from a Racine County prison, is a Governor Tony Evers (D) parolee, KCE has learned. Lorenzo Guyton only served about 30 years of a 58 year prison sentence, when Governor Tony Evers’ parole commission released him on September 24, 2021. Aside from murder, he was also charged with armed robbery and other serious felonies in 1992. Five months after being paroled, he allegedly committed armed robbery again in Milwaukee County. He was then held on a $10,000 cash bond and sent back to prison. He eventually made his way to RCI, or Racine Correctional Institution, where he allegedly attempted escape last weekend. According to a source familiar with the investigation, Guyton made it over one of many fences outside of the prison. Guyton, however, encountered a fence that was electrically charged and reportedly was rendered unconscious. Alarms meant to alert correctional staff to such behavior were ignored for 45 minutes until Guyton was discovered outside the walls of the prison.

We contacted the Racine County Sheriff’s Department who is heading up the criminal investigation. They’re likely to refer charges to the Racine County District attorney’s office.

  1. I wonder if this was another felon released while Racine’s John Tate II was in charge of paroles? Mr. Tate II is currently, I believe, head of Racine’s Common Council and a leader in the Democrat Party.

  2. Keep reporting and fighting the good fight and God Bless you Kevin. These radicalized sons of bitches that hide behind the progressive agenda need to be held to the light of day. Truth be told they could give two shits about black Americans. Tony Evers, the 70 year old pencil neck, ball-less, lifetime tax payer nipple sucking wimp, if left alone will drive our beautiful Wisconsin deeper down the shit hole in my opinion. He ran the Department of Public Instruction/Destruction for years sending black children and families even deeper into poverty and crime, before Scott Walker harpooned him thank God. Shame on Governor pencil neck Tony Evers, for choosing the race hustling, poverty pimp, never worked an honest day in his life thug Mandela Shit head Barnes as his lieutenant Governor. Every shit head radical leftist, Lexus, liberal Wisconsinite like Tony Evers, needs to quit their job and give it to some poorer black person. They should pay toward reparations for black people and encourage their daughters and grand daughters to marry poorer black men as well, like the one mentioned in this article so that we can spread the love.

    Stay tuned for more 🙂

  3. Tony gee whiz, oh gosh, by golly ,let’s all hold hands and sing koombaya Evers allowed Kenosha homes an businesses to burn to the ground during the riots. He told us to fight covid and not people while he sat by and allowed the demons from all over the country to destroy our city. His policies and politics do not align with the values of most Wisconsin families. He indoctrinates our children in the public schools and teaches them to hate the America that we all love in my opinion. He has done enough damage already and needs to go. Maybe he can move to Shitcago and help Lori Lighfoot run that city. He may feel more at home there.

  4. Although the escape attempt can be attributed to Evers and Barnes liberal agenda regarding the setting free of murdering scum…I doubt it will diminish Ever’s being named Ambassador to North Korea along with Barnes as his trusty sidekick.
