Just for the people not familiar with Strange Maarten, and the Strange Martians….
our “prisoners” escape for carnival ALL THE TIME…
Sometimes it’s reported, sometimes it’s not….
This is not the first time during Carnival that prisoners simply left to enjoy the celebrations…
and usually they turn themselves in at the end of carnival.
Don’t believe me if you don’t want to. I remember when C.H. escaped from Point Blanch back in 2000, because he needed to talk to his wife.
He escaped, had the conversation…….then returned…
And it happens more than you think,
you need to contact the Daily Herald, to get the actual stats,
The Today are very unreliable.
But part of the reason that locals usually don’t panic, is because we are pretty much used to it.
There’s the chance that he escaped for nefarious reasons,
but it would be a big coincidence if he just happened to “escape” during carnival 🙂
