It's from the third episode of the second season of the Walking Dead. Here is the context:

Rick: (in the background) The principal's car right out of the teacher's lot in the middle of a school day. Shane steps out of lunch and makes a beeline to Kingsley's Hyundai...(chuckles) Wires the ignition,peels out,drives down Dylan drive to that chicken farm out there. You've heard this before,right? So he pulls it into one of the big holding pens. Kingsley,he waxed that thing every month;had the auto shop vacuum it out every week. Shane,he parks it in this huge pen with a couple of hundred Rhode Island reds. He busts open bags of seed in the back seat,rolls down all the windows,and then starts sprinting back to school. It's three miles away easy. He's back in time to finish his sandwich before the bell. And then the bell rings

This is not grammatically correct English, but someone attempting a colloquial accent in dialog (well, monologue, really). The sentence should be, "It's three miles away, easily." Here, easily is used in the sense of at least, or beyond, with room for error. Another example:

The ball flew over the bleachers, easily a home run.

'Three miles away easy' is a casual or dialect way of saying 'without doubt, at least three miles away'. More formally, you can say 'it is easily three miles away'.
