This is a discussion on How the heck did this guy get away? within the In the News: The Good, the Bad and the Ugly forums, part of the The Back Porch category; http://annistonstar.com/view/full_st...ston-hospital?...
Wow I just left that hospital that same day with my wife. Had to take her there because she had breathing problems. Wow!!! The sheriff is slipping big time...
How did he get away? According to the article;
Hunt entered the bathroom in his hospital room, tore off his IV, flung the door open and sprinted past his guards. Neither of the officers were able to catch hunt, Amerson said, and the man fled the hospital.

Sounds like it's gonna take Kryptonite to stop this one. Or more than 8 lead injections. WOW!!
I prefer to live dangerously free than safely caged!

Wow now the sheriff is blaming the guards on duty. Along with have police check points looking for the guy at hand..
I feel sorry for him if caught because he's really made this sheriff look real badd..If he had ay brains he's out of the state maybe even headed to the border..
As a former LEO I understand how it happens. A guarded suspect isn’t expected to do, or be able to do certain things. An officer becomes complacent and before you know it the guy is gone in a flash. Our primal instinct to escape capture is pretty darn strong. I escorted a 'rabbit' prisoner (runner) to the ER and the doctor insisted that I remove the cuffs for examination. Sure enough, the prisoner attempted to bolt until I had him pinned down with the nozzle of my OC device pressed against his eyeball, at which point he relaxed. My partner was added insurance but the suspect was very strong and very determined.

Too bad such determination is wasted on crime.
I remember reading about an emergency room, somewhere in America, that started requiring LEOs to disarm before they brought in prisoners after an inmate did a gun grab and shot the place up. Overreaction INHO.

I bet in the future they put leg irons on everybody under hospital arrest.
Hopefully this guy gets an infection in his wounds and either dies from it or runs back to the hospital

Hunt was ejected from the car, and when police arrived, they found him lying in the street, according to police accounts.

That's the problem with dialing 911, it's so fast. In a case like this, someone should have gone to th post office and mailed a letter to police dept. Could have saved a lot of good breathable air.
