Inmate Sues Jail for Being ‘Too Easy’ to Escape From

‘A Colorado inmate who’s escaped twice from a county jail is suing because he says it was too easy for him to break out.

Scott Anthony Gomez, Jr. says guards at the jail abused him and that’s why he attempted to escape.

Gomez alleges he was seriously injured during an escape attempt in January of 2007. He alleges he fell 40 feet while trying to scale down the side of the jail.

His lawsuit says the doors on the jail cells weren’t locked and the ceiling tiles were easy to remove giving him an escape route through the ventilation system. [..]

The lawsuit is seeking an unspecified amount of money, claims authorities “did next to nothing to ensure that the jail was secure and that the Plaintiff could not escape.”‘
