Inmate Escapes SF's Hall of Justice While Taking Out Trash

An inmate escaped San Francisco's Hall of Justice while taking out the trash Saturday morning, according to the San Francisco Sheriff's Department.

The inmate, identified as Timothy Midgett, 40, of San Francisco, was being escorted into the basement of the jail at 850 Bryant St. to take out the trash when he ran out a door.

Midgett ran east and the deputy tried to keep up but lost him.

The sheriff's department and other law enforcement agencies are looking for Midgett, described as a black man standing 6 feet 3 inches tall, weighing 165 pounds with short black-and-gray hair, brown eyes, a mustache and a goatee.

He is a sentenced inmate booked on July 25, 2013, and due for release on July 24, according to the sheriff's department.

Only a month to go and now he can get years more for escape. Not too bright.

Sometimes the simple method works best. I hope they catch him, and figure out why this was so easy for Tim to do. Tim, the 6ft 3in Midgett.

He may have done it on purpose, to prolong his free ride, in stoney lonesome. Some prefer giving up their freedom to move around, in exchange for three squares and cot. Some give up on believing life will ever get any better than a basic excerise of survival.

"Three hots and a cot"--as the saying goes.

Maybe the "Midgett" refers to his I.Q. The 40 year old also seems to be a "taker."

Some years ago when I was serving my 6 months for drunk driving they had me washing dishes at the senior center right across the street from the Greyhound station. We were completely unsupervised and often had family members stop by for quick visits. They could have brought me street clothes and money for a ticket at any time.

One of the guards at the jail told me that they had never had a male inmate cross the street and get on the bus. They had to stop sending female inmates to work at the senior center because so many of them escaped from there.

This is, by the way, the reason why prisons rarely have track teams.

I think you are being unfair. I think Timothy Midgett served his prison with honor and distinction!

Some possibilities:
1. "Somebody" doesn't CARE what the boss thinks of him/her, so who cares what the JPE says?
2. "Somebody" doesn't CARE because there's a SOMEONE important behind the fool.
3. "Somebody" is a minority and thereby protected.

If this person is SO bad and CAN'T be fired, s/he CAN be send to some place where s/he can do the least harm...all with a "promotion."

This isn't a new phenomenon in human history.

He's likely a guy who wants to get caught and finds security in being in jail.

The unfortunately titled social belief known as The Peter Principal comes to mind. People will rise to the level of their incompetence, and then some if no body’s paying attention.

I worked in a California joint for 25 years. First, let me say, most inmates are not known for being smart. These types of escapes DO happen fairly regularly, even with only a month or two to go. There could be many reasons, such as drug debts, safety concerns etc. I would suspect the staff members are sweating bullets right now. If he commits more crimes, they could be in deep doo doo.

You ALMOST got it right.

He's dating both Pelosi and Feinstein. He LOOOOOVES older women. Feinstein is 80 years old, Pelosi is 66 or so.

I have a BETTER solution: we should put them in the same cell for the rest of their days.

The unfortunately titled social belief known as The Peter Principal comes to mind. People will rise to the level of their incompetence, and then some if no body’s paying attention.

To me "PETER'S PENCE" is a special collection taken up by the Catholic Church.

From Google:
Peter's Pence is payment made voluntarily to the Roman Catholic Church. It began under the Saxons in England and is seen in other countries. Though formally discontinued in England at the time of the Reformation, a post-Reformation payment of uncertain characteristics is seen in some English manors into the 19th century. In 1871, Pope Pius IX formalized the practice of lay members of the church – and "other persons of good will" – providing financial support to the Roman See.

Also:

The ancient payment (1031–1555)
The term Peter's pence, in its Latin form, first appeared in 1031, and the payment may not have had a single origin under the Saxons. Whether seen as a pious contribution, or merely a levy, it evidently underwent various changes both before and after the Norman conquest. It was applied by the Normans to Ireland as a 'penny per hearth' annual tax in the later part of the twelfth century under the Papal Bull Laudabiliter. The traditional scholarly view is summarized in Jacob's Law Dictionary Peter-Pence (Denarii Sancti Petri). Otherwise called in the Saxon Romefeoh (the fee due to Rome), it was a tribute or rather an alms given by Ina, King of the West Saxons, in his pilgrimage to Rome in 725. The like was also collected by Offa, King of the Mercians, throughout his dominions, in 794. However, it was said to be not a tribute to the pope, but for the sustenation of the English School or College at Rome. It was called Peter-pence because a penny from every house was collected on 1 August, the feast day of St. Peter ad Vincula. King Edgar’s Laws contain a sharp Constitution touching this money.

======================================================

In truth, no one HAS to give a nickel to the Church. One can simply let the collection basket PASS BY like a passing breeze. No one in the Church forces a Catholic to write that check. It truly is voluntary.

I have a friend who worked for a few years as a social worker at the HOJ. He told me that the inmates do the most incredibly stupid things - again and again.
