Hirao has told the police he escaped because it was difficult to remain at the prison, reportedly telling them he was "disgusted with relationships."

That's odd, I thought prison was supposed to be fun and cater to one's every desires.

He wanted to be free from relationships inside the prison and so, left a letter of apology in his shoe box and ran away, they said.

After fleeing from Matsuyama Prison's Oi shipyard, a rare open-type prison facility, Hirao eluded a massive police search for three weeks that involved tens of thousands of personnel.

According to the indictment, Hirao escaped from prison at around 6 p.m. on April 8 through a window of the facility's first floor. He stole some 30,000 yen and a car as well as about 60 other items, including a minibike and an identification card, worth around 310,000 yen in total in Imabari and Onomichi in Hiroshima Prefecture.

So, just at the drop of a hat, anyone in the prison can just leave? It's that simple?

Or is Hirao just that damn good? He makes it all look so easy?

So, basically, the headline is "Prisoner who escaped from prison didn't like being in prison."

Well now, after running away from a minimum security prison, stealing a car and spending two weeks on the lamb with a search that involved 15,000 police ‘perhaps’ he will be put into a real prison.
