We learned that after Richard Matt and David Sweat escaped Clinton Correctional. Now the state of Louisiana might also have to pick up the tab for another kind of manhunt. The saga is cartoonish but the missing convict Benjuiel Johnson is dangerous.
Because of a clerical error, reports Helen Regan in Time, Johnson got to walk out of the Dixon Correctional Institute about five days ago. That means he has had plenty of opportunity to set up a new life somewhere.
He had been serving a 40-year sentence for manslaughter.
The powers that be look foolish.
