Almost Escaped !!!

If this had happened in Canada the cops would all be suspended with full pay for a year then fired, there'd be an inquiry that would last two years with no outcome. The terrorist would get a new motorcycle and $500,000 ( minimum) compensation, an apology from the prime minister, a government job.
This incident took place in Spain . apparently the Spanish police agreed to placate a "bank hostage" situation by allowing the radical to "escape" uninhibited. He was allowed to walk out of the bank in the company of 2 hostages. The police provided him with a motorcycle and free access to the motorcycle.
Then, leaving the hostages behind, he was permitted to ride away down a clear roadway to make his "escape."
This whole incident, shown on CBS television, complete with news reporting in English, can be seen on this 55-second video clip.
The concluding few seconds of this video shows the result of the Spanish planning in this escape.
In my view, an appropriate conclusion to any situation that involves a terrorist.

Thanks Ralph
