    No one escapes prison with such a short sentence left unless they have a good reason.

    Happens all the time. It's related to the attitude of those that end up in prison: Many like this guy are narcissists.

    US Federal Prison is a well known "cake walk", the food is not bad, the facilities modern and comfortable, with libraries and educational possibilities, and in many cases, the "inmates" can go home on weekends and for longer vacations.

    Simply a fact that you have no clue what you are talking about.

    Either he was stupid or got a death threat from a disgruntled customer. If the latter he could have flipped and gone into witness protection. So probably just stupid,

    He obviously had a reason to escape immediately. I wonder what was happening to him.

    Happening to him? In "minimum security"? Probably boredom, very unlikely any ass pounding.

    This kind of person often thinks he's so much smarter than everyone else that he doesn't need to follow the rules like the rest of us fools.When he gets caught he'll blame other people, bad luck, whatever; it's never his fault. After all, he never did anything that was really wrong. Just followed a different set of rules because he's special.

    They do not allow people to take the weekends or even vacations off. You can request furloughs but those are only granted in extreme circumstances and if you have a perfect record once while in prison. I know people who were denied furloughs for funerals. You clearly have no first hand experience in the fed prison system.

    Only in the US. In other jurisdictions every men's urge to be free is recognized and accordingly there are no additional sentences for prison breaks IF nobody gets hurt, bribed, and property doesn't get damaged.

    going into Protective Custody in prison is the worst thing you can do. everyone will suspect you as a snitch or chomo, at the least you are showing weakness. either way, when you eventually get out of PC and back into GenPop, you'll be marked as a target for bangers to impress the shotcaller or as someone's bitch.

The first version always gets thrown away.
