Well, well, well. It seems that the Orange County Sheriff’s Department has really outdone themselves this time! Forget about the usual shenanigans of catching bad guys and keeping the peace – now they’re in the business of forgetting visitors and leaving them locked up overnight at their maximum security jail!
The Forgotten Visitor
So, here’s what went down: a woman in her 30s decided to pay a visit to an inmate at the Theo Lacy Facility. Seems like a lovely way to spend a Saturday, right? Well, things took an unexpected turn when the person she was there to see wasn’t immediately available.
Now, any normal human being would think that maybe it’s not meant to be and head on home. But not our visitor! She was asked to wait in the visiting area while her friend (or enemy?) behind bars got his act together.
And wait she did. In fact, she waited so long that she fell asleep in one of those charming little booths they have set up for visitors. And guess what? No one noticed her snoozing away as visiting hours came and went! I mean, come on – who hasn’t accidentally left someone behind at least once in their life?
A Minor Laceration
To add insult to injury (literally), our poor forgotten visitor woke up with a minor laceration on her hand. How exactly did this happen? We may never know. Maybe it was from trying to claw her way out of that booth after realizing everyone had gone home for the night.
Naturally, after this fiasco made headlines (because how could it not?), sheriff’s officials suddenly realized they might need some new rules around here. So now supervisors are required to physically check the visiting area after hours end for the day – you know, just in case someone gets left behind again.
But wait – there’s more! The jail is also planning on installing an emergency phone in the area because apparently no one thought about that before.
Sgt.Gonzalez Speaks Out
Sgt.Frank Gonzalez spoke out about this whole mess by saying “This unfortunate incident should never have occurred.” Wow Frank, you really hit us with some hard-hitting insight there!</P?
Folks…this is where we’ve ended up. A world where even going for a friendly visit can turn into your worst nightmare if you’re not careful enough.
We can only hope that next time someone falls asleep during visiting hours at Theo Lacy Facility; they’ll remember to set their alarm clock or bring along some snacks and entertainment – because who knows when help will arrive?</P?
In conclusion…maybe just stick with virtual visits from now on? At least then if you fall asleep waiting for your incarcerated loved ones or frenemies…you won’t wake up feeling like Tom Hanks stranded on an island all alone
with nothing but Wilson his imaginary friend……..and let’s face it folks…..we all know how THAT turned out.
Goodnight Orange County Jail….don’t forget your visitors!! They don’t make very good cellmates!
