What the hell kind of keystone cops do they have for a "transport team?" How does a kid in leg restraints and without shoes manage to escape and how far can fast can he possibly be with those leg restraints? Can you say "incompetence?" Must be some red faces on those people.
With all the technology out there with cell phones, etc one would think that these leg restraints or ankle monitors would be equipped with a device that give the location of the wearer. Especially in a transport case.
Ankle monitors DO have a GPS feature built in. I really WOULD like to hear the rest of the story CB. I don't really see where GPS on ankle restraints should be necessary, but how can anyone get very far with their ankles shackled together with a foot or so of chain and ankle bracelets? I would think that someone suspected of a double murder would be under constant watch and never out of sight of those guarding him. The rest of the story will probably include disciplinary action and an ass chewing for whoever was supposed to be watching the kid.
A person I know was on house arrest for felony DWI and wore a bracelet. She was allowed to work, but they could tell at any given time exactly where she was and when she arrived home she had to check in with authorities and again before she went to bed. They also had some sort of breathalyzer device connected to her phone and they could call her and have her blow into the machine and it would transmit the results via telephone. She was supposed to go directly home from work and check in. She had 6 hours on Saturdays to shop or do whatever she wanted. She got dinged once when she thought she could get away with stopping after work to get her hair done. The hair dresser was next to a bar in N Utica. A probation officer or a cop, I don't know which, actually went there and found her in the hair salon. Had she been in the bar she would have been off to OCJ for a year.
