Mas Selamat did a "Toilet Break"

Yes it is a Toilet Break. Mas Selamat did a 'Toilet Break'. He escaped when he was asked to use the toilet, just before meeting his family. Maybe he escaped through the sewerage system. It was not a prison break either since it was a detention center and he was caught under the ISA so he is not considered a 'prisoner'. But frankly, detention center or prison, both serve the same purpose, to keep inmates in.

I doubt he escaped through the fences since it is filled with barb wires and has security cameras around the perimeter of the Detention Center. The gates are guarded by guards and security personnel. So where else can he escape? Sewers!

Well it is just a guess. Since the media seems a little 'hush-hush' about the how he actually escaped.

It's been more than 24 hours now, the prospect of him being caught seems slimmer by the minute. 24 hours is more than enough time to escape Singapore. Less than an hour to get around Singapore and even lesser to get out of this island.

Just to add salt to the wound, our fittest men are out looking for a man with a limp. If they can't catch him, I really do not know what to say about Singapore's security. No I am not losing my confidence on Singapore's security, our tax payers money are well spent, you can see it all around. I think what Singaporeans are thinking is the competency of our security.

We are holding a F1 Race this year and the Youth Olympics in 2 years time. And this guy is known to be the mastermind behind the plot of crashing a plane into Changi Airport and bombing the Yishun MRT station. You really can't have a man such as him loose. It just makes us all feel uneasy.

So what do I think about his escape? I could say brilliant if I knew how he did it. If he did it so smartly like those 'Ocean's Eleven' kind of escape then yeah brilliant. But if it is because of a mistake by the security personnel then we just have ourselves to blame.

I personally think that he might have planned his escape. Bear in mind he is a limping man, he must have some kind of transport to get him to some edge of the island. Then all he has to do is get on a boat and he is free. Impossible? Remember Took Leng How, the guy who escaped from, yes you guessed it, a toilet! And this guy was escorted by the police. He escaped from there and hailed a taxi, went to the Woodlands checkpoint and left Singapore. Well Mas Selamat could have done the same. Probably not to the Woodlands checkpoint, but maybe on a boat somewhere.

Don't forget that there was a security lockdown of the Detention Center. How long it took I do not know but those minutes spent, Mas Selamat would have been on a vehicle, speeding off from his escape.

Well, I sincerely hope they catch him soon. I mean really soon. It isn't a wonderful feeling knowing a man is capable of inflicting terrible damage to this country.
