50. And yet...people do escape, a few never caught.
Some have been, after time, deemed "sane" and released.

These things have happened.

You are right though, I do not know, to what extent mental institutions have been so fortified, even to 99 and 99/100% escape proof....still...this man slaughtered 70 and some men women and children.

1/1000th of a percent, in such a deadly situation, IMO, is a risk not worth taking.

Think for instance of percentages and the Fukushima nuclear power plant that was indestructible.

Odds are very different when the result of even the most remote, can be deadly.

Some countries now realize, correctly, that the odds, no matter how remote and though every precaution is taken, in the case of nuclear, are just not worth the taking.

It is not enough that, after a disaster, fully preventable by not taking the say...every precaution was taken.
