Question: Why does Buscuit try to run right before he's let out? Why does he say he can't go home to his mama?

Chosen answer: Because he is gay. In the time this movie is set, being homosexual was not only an extreme moral and religious taboo, but it was illegal in most parts of the US. Buscuit is too ashamed of letting his mother find out about his relationship with Jangleleg, so he runs, knowing the guards will shoot him dead.
