A convicted killer by the name Kamron Taylor who early last week attacked a jail guard and escaped from the Kankakee jail facility was re-arrested in late Friday night. Taylor was arrested by Chicago police shortly before midnight near the South Stone Island and 92nd Street. Taylor had a loaded handgun during his arrest. He was charged with four felony counts connected to the possession of a firearm. Taylor was recently found guilty of committing a murder and was a murder and was detained at the Jerome combs detention center awaiting his sentencing. He escaped from his two-man cell on Wednesday night at around 3 a.m. Taylor was identified by the Chicago police based on the strange tattoos and a reward of 25,000 dollars was placed for anyone who could give any information likely to lead to his arrest.

The officials have no idea of how Taylor managed to escape from his cell by they believe that he did not enter his cell when the facility went on shutdown. He then hid in the facility before attacking the guard, beat him and choked him. He then possessed the guard’s uniform, keys and he used his 2012 Chevy Equinox to escape. The staff cuts that took place in December last year could have contributed to Taylor’s escape as the prisoners are aware of the cut and may take advantage of it. The car he used to escape was found by the police five hours after the escape, but Taylor was at large until late Friday night. More police officers were deployed in the area near where the car was found believing that killer stayed in the area. The reward for any information about his whereabouts was increased. The attacked guard is still hospitalized and is in a stable condition. Taylor remains in custody in Chicago, but he may be returned to Kankakee jail facility.

It beats logic how a convict can escape from a high-security prison of the level of Kankakee prison. The escape is an indication of how the American prisons are insecure and lacks the appropriate security system to ensure that law breakers are kept away from innocent, law-abiding citizens. Some of these facilities are understaffed and this could be the factor that may lead to insecurity in these facilities. Taylor’s escape could also be could have also been as a result of the inside job. Maybe some guard or an employee of the prison had facilitated his escape has no one can explain how he broke out from his cell. The government needs to beef up security in order to prevent future incidents where prisoners escape from their cells as this could expose innocent Americans to the threats of these criminals. Similarly, more security guards should be employed to enhance security in these facilities. More should be done to minimize the risks of exposing innocent citizens to criminal actions of the law-breakers who are on the run.
