I've read that story twice and I still don't really know what happened.

So... local stations are now product placing themselves in 'news' stories?

After reading some other takes on this it's becoming clear that she is a car thief. She probably escaped the jail and wasn't simply released.

spent Saturday shopping at Walmart and eating at Subway and was at home watching baseball on Fox 59 Saturday night when she received a phone call from her brother-in-law.
"He said, 'You're all over Fox 59 News that you escaped from jail.' And I'm, like, 'What?'"
Something's not right here...

I knew a lady who lost her credit rating to identity theft.  I also had an employer with all employee info on his laptop that was stolen.  I had to flag myself to credit agencies so they must contact me on my cell prior to any credit applications being approved.

"So Majors collected her belongings"
Should be easy to verify, they don't hand over your stuff when you escape.

Sounds like the authorities haven't investigated this very well.  I could see a victim of identity theft falling through the cracks of incompetency here.

I like how there's ZERO presumption the state made a mistake.

Someone was supposed to be in jail and was not. Default answer: an escape took place. Don't bother to check your paperwork or video logs before throwing out accusations because the state never makes mistakes. Defending one's self from baseless criminal accusations by the govt. is just the price we pay to be free.

there is an active initiative to prevent people with "too high of an iq" from getting law enforcement jobs, resulting in  those who work there are dimwitted, SOP-oriented, paycheck collectors with no mind of their own.press a button, get a banana - idiocracy style.

NARRATOR
Joe decided that in order to get out of jail, he would have to use his superior diplomacy skills.
PVT. JOE BOWERS
[talking to the prison guard] Hey, uh... I'm actually supposed to be getting out of jail, not going back in...
PRISON GUARD #2
[hits Joe on the back of the head] You're supposed to be in that line, dumbass! [he points to the door] Hey, guys, let this dumbass out!

Here's my take on it:

Woman gets identity stolen.
Woman arrested on charges due to that stolen identity.
Woman released and charges dropped.
Woman arrested again, sent to jail.
Paperwork comes through saying woman has pending identity theft case, someone might have used her name, she should be released from jail.
She collects her things, uses phone, hangs out at jail waiting for a ride.
Goes home, shops, eats, watches TV.
Brother calls saying "You're on the news, something something escaped inmate"
Woman says "WTF?" and arranges to turn herself in to sheriff to help clear up things.
Undercover detective catches wind of meeting of woman and sheriff and snatches her up.
Woman back in jail.


That's what I got from the article...And if I was the sheriff, I would have slapped cuffs on the undercover detective for farking up her turning herself in. Dude, you don't piss off sheriffs... They are the top of the food chain in their county. Good luck with that detective ever getting cooperation from that sheriff for a while.

UPDATE: She settles out of court for $5 million, moves to a Hendricks county.

"Escaped Inmate" is an awful band name; nobody can find you in Google.

There is no such initiative.

Which is it, stupid, or dishonest?

Nope still don't get it.  There a stolen car in there.  The way it reads sounds like the only real issue here is if she actually did escape.  Sounds like she was probably there on charges but wanted on others.  The way they are trying to frame it sounds like "poor woman put through the ringer because of mistaken identity" when the truth is probably closer to "woman mistakenly let loose because she had a good story and paperwork got mixed up".

New London was discriminating against Robert Jordan based on his age. He was a 49-year-old entry-level applicant. The IQ argument was the best legal argument city had. While public safety departments are allowed to discriminate based on age, municipalities want to be able to hire experienced, POST-certified officers of that age. Saying that a 49 year old rookie is too old but a 54 year old transfer is fine is hard to justify.

Jordan was going to be a short-timer. Six months at the academy, at least 3 months field training, a maximum of a 14-year career as an officer, then mandatory retirement at 65. The city stated that it wanted to avoid short-timers and believed Jordan was going to be a short-timer because of his IQ. What they don't mention is that he couldn't have put in a full career because of his age.

The story would have been better if they could have slipped the phrase "Fox 59" in there a few more times.  Ten times just isn't enough.

/For contrast, the woman's name, Brandy, appears 8 times
//And I didn't count the banner/logo

Vlad_the_Inaner: The story would have been better if they could have slipped the phrase "Fox 59" in there a few more times.  Ten times just isn't enough.


Yeah, that's what I was thinking.

"He said, 'You're all over Fox 59 News that you escaped from jail.' And I'm, like, 'What? Fox 59 News, with the Accu-Trak™ Doppler Radar?'"

"Yes," her brother-in-law responded. "Fox 59 News, the one with Stone Garibaldi on sports, and the home of the Fox 59 Consumer Protection Squad."

"Wow!" the suspect exclaimed. "It's such an honor to even be mentioned on Fox 59. But I can't go back to jail. They don't have Fox 59 there."

"Fox 59," added several passersby.

Sunday morning, as Brandy and husband watched Fox 59 News and saw her story repeated, they decided they needed some help...

The Nebraska Family...! Hold on a second, aren't you and that son of yours supposed to be in jail for the next 700 years?

Ain't you the mouthy whipper-snapper. For your information, we released ourselves yesterday.

Isn't that called a "jailbreak"?

Yeah, yeah. Call it whatever ya want.
