What security?

This morning (April 28), I woke to the sound of the jail alarm.

I know this sound; we've heard it before, and I'm sure we'll hear it again.

Soon after waking I heard prisoner-hunting helicopters overhead. I told my daughter I would take her to school instead of her walking, and upon arriving at Valencia High School we were greeted to the sight of a helicopter hovering over the campus.

Clearly, the officials at the jail are overmatched by these prisoners, as these escapes continue to happen.

Usually the prisoners just walk away, since there are no fences in certain areas like the laundry.

Surely, the cost of a fence is cheaper than the cost of these semi regular manhunts.

The officials remind us it's "minimum security." Boy, is that an understatement.

Are we sure the word "security" even applies?

Is that supposed to make me feel better, while my daughters are out today with prisoners on the loose?
