Understaffing = Escapes
The major media outlets are ignoring this since so many of their relatives work for Dart:
- The prisoner who led authorities on a three-hour manhunt after fleeing the Rolling Meadows courthouse Wednesday is being held on $1 million bail after Cook County prosecutors Thursday filed a felony escape charge against him.
The Cook County sheriff's office said it is launching a thorough investigation into how Jonathan J. Scott was able to escape. As part of the inquiry, they say they will conduct a comprehensive review of staff and procedures.
Dart's people were quick to deny the obvious:
- The escape was not the result of a shortage of guards at the courthouse, [sheriff's spokeswoman Kara] Smith said.
"There is no suggestion that this was related to staffing," she said.
Could Miss Smith explain why this is the fourth such escape at a Dart run facility just this year then? We were just wondering.
