How to break out of jail (video)

(NBC4) Newly released video shows California inmates' escape from OC jail! The escapees film themselves breaking out of maximum security detention before kidnapping a taxi driver, living it up in San Francisco with marijuana, bananas, Jack Daniels, then getting caught.
Hurry up and wait in that cell, convict!
It’s been more than a year since three inmates escaped from a maximum security wing at the Santa Ana Central Men’s Jail in Orange County.
A week passed before the manhunt ended in San Francisco, where two of the inmates were captured [after hanging out in the Whole Foods parking lot]. The third escapee turned himself in to local authorities.

NBC4 obtained a video taken by the three men who escaped a maximum-security wing at an Orange County jail last year, using a contraband cellphone.

But a new video from a lawyer connected to the case was released this week to KPCC FM media partner NBC4. The cell (mobile) phone video is shot in first-person by one of the three inmates who broke out of the O.C. prison, showing both the escape and the days following during their run.
The footage has one of the escaped prisoners, Adam Hossein Nayeri, debunking [false] claims that [officials at] the jail made about their escape. This has led to questions about jail security and the transparency over what happened during the incident.

Today Libby Denkmann speaks to reporters who’ve been following the story to find out more. More + AUDIO (interview)

DETAILS, DETAILS: This video has emerged, showing how three prisoners broke out of the Central Men's Jail in Santa Ana, California earlier this year. The video was shot on a contraband cellphone and shows the three inmates escaping through a vent which led to the roof. However, the video doesn't show how they got off the roof (using high tension industrial rope not as officials lied about saying it was sheets tied together). Authorities lied to protect themselves when they said the trio used a chain of bed linens to get off the roof, and the media bought it and reported it without questioning or pushing back on the claim. The video also includes several photos that the three men took during their nearly a week on the run. The men are seeing smiling at the beach with a cabbie who they allegedly took hostage and forced to drive them to San Francisco. In other photos, they smile and pose in front of the Haight-Ashbury intersection (SF's hippie district). The video ends with two of the escapees smoking marijuana in the back of a van just two hours before they were recaptured. Jonathan Tieu, 20, Bac Duong, 43, and Hossein Nayeri, 37, escaped from Orange County Central Men’s Jail on Jan. 22, 2016. From left, Jonathan Tieu, 20, Bac Duong, 43, and Hossein Nayeri, 37, escaped from Orange County Central Men’s Jail on Jan. 22, 2016. Three maximum security inmates broke out of Orange County Jail in 2016, spent days on the run and recorded the entire thing. Video obtained by NBC4 shows a first-person perspective of the escape. It contains voice-overs from one of the escapees, a compilation of news clips regarding their break-out, and video of their time fleeing authorities.
