Separating the dangerous people from the rest of society, prison is undoubtedly one of the greatest human inventions of all time. However, several unusual cases have revealed that the supposed impenetrable walls of prisons have failed to keep criminals in check as some criminals have been able to find a way to escape their fate.
Over time, there have been several cases of prisons break by hardened criminals and not low brow thieves who, by accidents, found themselves behind bars.
These people who have found a way to escape these correctional facilities are known to be extremely dangerous people. And that is the main reason several people have questioned the abilities of correctional officers who prove to be less smart than these criminals as most of these criminals commit more dangerous and life-threatening crimes after escaping from prisons.
As dangerous as these people are, you would wonder how smart they are to plan and successfully carry out a prison break.
You will wonder how meticulous and strategic they would have been to be able to carry out such a dreadful operation.
Even though the crime of breaking out is despicable, there is no way you wouldn’t admire the determination, hard work, and cunningness invested in carrying out the escape plan.
Sometimes an escape plan could be as simple as bribing top officials and conniving with the right people. It could also be as difficult as finding intelligent inmates to hatch elaborate crime plans. No need mincing words, these guys are good!
It’s just so sad and surprising that sociopaths, serial killers, and those who commit unimaginable crimes possess very high IQs.
With life in prison being the payment for crime, the following people almost got away from facing the law.
10 El Chapo: Most Powerful, Most Feared Man In Mexico
Joaquin ‘El Chapo’ Guzman is by far known as the most dangerous and terrifying man in Mexican history. For many years, he was known as the most powerful man in the Mexican cartel.
He didn’t only become famous for his brutal crimes; he became more famous for breaking out of prison. For many years, he was head of Sinaloa Cartel. He also ran a drug empire where he smuggled about 500 tons of cocaine into the United States alone, which caused the death of a lot of people.
For his crimes, he was captured in 2001, but he escaped in a laundry cart after bribing prison officials. In 2013, he was caught, but he escaped through a large tunnel that led straight to his prison shower. In January, he was caught again and was sentenced to Life in Prison in 2019.
