5' 4"

Need a hard target search of every dog house, doll house, bird house, tiny house in a 40 mile radius.

Nice work, Subby.

Guard 1: It's 7 am. A prisoner is missing!

Guard 2: Well, I just got my egg McMuffin and you know how bad those taste when they get cold. Give me an hour to eat, then let's try to find him.

Well, he's going to fit under 12'4" so we won't notice him there.

Renfaires are the bomb.

"A spokesperson for Las Vegas Metro police said the department was aware of the missing convicted murderer and officers were being vigilant."

Maybe if they were vigilant FIRST, he wouldn't be missing!

Hey Nurse!: Guard 1: It's 7 am. A prisoner is missing!

Guard 2: Well, I just got my egg McMuffin and you know how bad those taste when they get cold. Give me an hour to eat, then let's try to find him.


Or they spent the hour doing a hard lockdown and cell-by-cell headcount.

I had to deal with a few of those myself, because some jackass on my shift did headcount without checking a cell's shiatter, came up one short, and never bothered to address the shortage. Thus, the automated system led to about an hour of rounding everyone up for another headcount and no entry or exit from the entire facility until it's done. As the local cops pile around the area.

Not that the guy's escape wasn't due to incomeptent or lazy CO's. They absolutely exist. I've worked with some.

But that is why the search outside the facility didn't begin for an hour. The search, even outside, was already happening. They just didn't confirm an inmate was missing until another count confirmed it.

They probably wanted to throughly check the inside of the prison in areas beside his cell before looking outside. He could have been hiding in a crawl space or storage closet.

Probably be caught before he gathers all the stuff to make another bomb, or so we hope.

coffee cup bomb makes me think this is a trained fellow who works for a heavy. his skills were missed and he will be back to work in foreign countries in short time.

He weighs about 62 kg. Be on the lookout.
 
2022-09-27 11:17:50 PM  
Say what you will about the guy, but he's crafty.

Don't let violent felons escape from jail?

I don't grok the headline...I know that Jan 6 woman was allowed to go to a Ren Faire, but why this guy

"Porfirio Duarte-Herrera, 42, isWAS serving a life sentence without the possibility of parole for murder at the Southern Desert Correctional Center "

He didn't escape from the Las Vegas Metro Police. He escaped from a nearby prison that's not their responsibility.

Christian Bale: I don't grok the headline...I know that Jan 6 woman was allowed to go to a Ren Faire, but why this guy


Equally baffled. I hold it might be a reference to a Simpsons episode based on other comments, but I think it's more related to this headline, "The woman accused of stealing Pelosi's laptop gets to attend Renaissance Faire"

It has to do with the fact that he's 5'4 tall. He would blend in at a Renaissance fair apparently.

I can't blame him for escaping.  He had no meaningful future and so nothing to lose by trying.

If they don't catch him, I can only hope he lives a decent life this time around.  But hopefully they catch him.

Isn't dwarf tossing illegal these days?

I assume that's how he got out.
