All that and the best photo she has for a replacement is a cropped group shot?

After I escaped, I asked the cops to run the same photo that got me in trouble in the first place. Sadly, it led to them recapturing me after a passerby managed to identify me by my penis.

I do not think she fully understands the point of incarceration.

Well, since she was on the lam, she couldn’t really say the worse photo was un warranted.

And she didn’t capitalize her sentence, and didn’t use sentence-ending punctuation.

Would’ve been good if she’d gone on about how everyone was doing the investigation wrong.

It’s almost like she thought her sentence was unimportant and didn’t care to finish it.

Since I haven’t been able to find any description of what she did wrong other than escaping, which from no less an authority than Tolkien is the duty of a prisoner, I am totally on her side.

There should be sort of a patreon or grantspace for criminals I could donate to here. (KA-CHING! New Business model [4th this week!])

Ed McDonnough: You mean you busted out of jail.
Evelle: No, ma’am. We released ourselves on our own recognizance.
Gale: What Evelle here is trying to say is that we felt that the institution no longer had anything to offer us.

Fun fact (also off-topic): when Brendan Abbott was arrested in Darwin (on his way to or from getting pizza, can’t remember now), I wrote the front page story about it in a major metro daily.
