The guest on the @itsgoingdown podcast today mentioned this past year has seen a big increase in prison/jail escapes - anyone know more about that?

Obvs prisons will want to keep this info on the DL, but I'm very curious to learn more about how many escapes are actually happening in 2021

@riotmuffin
hm, i missed that point, was it from "This Is America #146"? the escapee trends have been going down steadily for years, but perhaps there was a spike due to people trying to avoid COVID by any means necessary?

@igd_news @tom_nomad any idea on this?

@goldcarrot @igd_news @tom_nomad oh, it wasn't actually the podcast after all - it was the kpfa show today interviewing folks from Oakland Abolition & Solidarity.
