Morning Poll: Should Guards Have Noticed Inmate as He Scaled Five Fences Before Escaping?

Clayton Thornburg had a brief taste of freedom yesterday
A guy wearing nothing but pink socks was seen running towards 35th Avenue near the Durango Jail yesterday. The problem with that -- aside from the guy being naked -- is he was an inmate at the jail who'd just scaled five razor-wire fences and his running naked through the jail parking lot was the first time detention officers noticed him.

As we pointed out yesterday, multiple fences aren't just part of an obstacle course for inmates -- part of their purpose is to give guards more time to respond if someone does make the bold decision to try and scale them.

In other words, if someone can get over one, there's no reason he can't get over five -- a sixth fence probably wasn't stopping this guy.

We contacted the Maricopa County Sheriff's Office to get an explanation as to how nobody noticed the inmate as he scaled five fences but nobody got back to us.

It seems monitoring the fences is fairly large part of a detention officer's job but we want to know what you think: should guards at the jail have noticed a guy scaling five fences?

Vote -- and see the results of yesterday's poll -- below.

This is off topic from the other comments but you touch film izle upon it in your post… Concerning E and J, have you considered individual therapy for them? It is really

important that they are able to process, in an emotionally healthy way, these huge life bombs that have been thrown their way. I’m glad to hear that E has a cousin he

can relate to but the great thing with therapists is that they can be completely impartial. hd film izle E and J would be

able to say anything to a therapist, things they might not want to admit to anyone within the family. Addiction is a family disease, so as great as it is to have

familial support, it is equally filmini izle important to have outside, unbiased support as well. E and J may want to check out Alateen as well, where they can meet others their

age who have been through the same thing.


yes drug test guards.. why is the criminal stupid? sounds like the cops were stupid in this one!
