  1. You have to wonder whether someone capable of such a mistake isn’t just working on auto-pilot. How could anyone tasked with public safety make a mistake like that?

  2. Hi Sault on line 😁
    Just curious and maybe I’ve missed something but if you look at when this first aired and the time of the escape “release” shouldn’t there have been a public announcement earlier or did they just realized he was gone almost 5 hours later? ☮️
