DannemoraOners in their own homes as law enforcement from across the nation swept the rural wilderness near the Canadian border The manhunt made front page headlines as did the prison sex scandal involving both inmates and Joyce Mitchell and culminated in a dramatic and bloody standoffNow Charles A Gardner a lifelong resident of the community and a former correction officer who began his training at Clinton and ultimately oversaw the training of staff in twelve prisons including Clinton tells the whole story from an insider's point of view Not only is the narrative blunt but the author enables the reader to get an eye opening view not only into the escape of Richard Matt and David Sweat but into the NYS Department of Corrections the Clinton Correctional Facility at Dannemora as well as the restrictions and additional duties our correctional staff must perform without any increase in staffLt Gardner goes into the history of these two men and how they got to Clinton Correctional Matt and Sweat were cunning and able to manipulate their way into working at the tailor shops It was there that they encountered supervisor Joyce Mitchell who seemed to think she was above the regulations regarding interactions between staff and inmates She eventually smuggled the tools used by the men to cut through their cell walls into the catwalks and into the metal tunnels that led to outside the walls She even agreed to be their getaway driver she was unable to provide that service due to an anxiety attack that landed her in the hospital the night of the escapeBut it wasn't only Mitchell and her inappropriate behavior An escort guard who allowed Matt to skip going through the metal detector was also complacent Corcraft which operates several industries in the prison system who focused on fulfilling vendor orders than security matters Various other inmates guards and supervisors that saw Mitchell's friendliness with the inmate 'employees' and failed to report it Or if they did were ignored by higher upsIt is exceedingly fortunate that these escapees didn't kill any civilians or police officers during their escape as well during the search Breaking into hunting camps Matt and Sweat gained shelter food supplies guns and ammunition as well as the alcohol which led to Sweat abandoning Matt and Matt's eventual confrontation but they didn't confront any of the owners who checked on their property during the searchGardner even goes into the results of the investigation performed by an outside agency into Clinton and the escape As expected supervisory civilian and uniformed personnel were found at fault Some were forced into retirement Some returned to their jobs after being penalized So who is to blame for the 'do with less' ethic that led to empty wall towers insufficient manpower to perform inspections and inability to declare lock downs without Albany's approval That would be Albany who made the policies and procedures which failed and they didn't take any of the blame The only negative I could say is that it would have been a nice addition to have a map of the area around Clifton Correctional and the search area Being able to refer to it as the manhunt proceeded would have clarified the inmates journeyOtherwise excellent book Very accessible Writing style smooth and fast moving And on a personal note thanks to the men and women who were involved in the search 2019 111
