    By the way: Who pays the hospital bill in such a case? An arrested, but not convicted person. Should be himself, in my opinion, but somehow I doubt that he has health insurance… and if he pays cash, then I would assume that these are the proceeds from some earlier burglaries…

    My god! The man is a virtual Houdini!! What a brilliant ploy!!! The old ‘I got a tummy ache and run’. No wonder he was able to escape.

    Good Job RCIPS. Now that this poor guy woke you up is there any chance you can give us an update on those other three investigations?

      An update on the three investigations is long overdue. Stop letting the people believe that some individuals are above the law.

    "Dodged" – are RCIPS so short of funds that a prisoner isnt handcuffed anymore?  What did he do – just run faster than PC Plod?   SMH
