Wrote about some jail breakouts from this past Monday for Fck Prison

Video footage of 12 men escaping Washington State Jail has been circulating around all day. The group got out around 7pm yesterday, by breaking a fire door and jumping the fence. Since then, six people have been found.

A couple hours later, halfway across the country in South Dakota, 9 women from the same unit escaped from a minimum security jail through an exterior door. One person was found right away. Three more were found today.

Both of these breakouts were motivated by the spread of COVID-19. Over 15 states in the U.S. are currently releasing thousands of people from jails as a response to the health risks associated with overcrowding.
