Murderer walks away from prison, grabs a taxi
By Nathan Taylor, QMI Agency

ORILLIA, Ont. Cops have arrested a murderer who walked away from prison over the weekend and hailed a taxi to a casino.
Luigi Boni, who was serving a life sentence at Beaver Creek Institution in Gravenhurst, Ont., for second-degree murder, was arrested in Barrie, Ont., Tuesday.
He left Beaver Creek illegally Sunday and took a taxi to Casino Rama, police said.
Cops made contact with Boni and arranged to have him turn himself in.
Boni, who was also serving time for theft, break and enter, robbery and impaired driving, has now been charged with escape from lawful custody.
The perimeter at Beaver Creek, a minimum-security institution, is "defined, but it's not controlled," said assistant warden Annette Allen.




An assessment concluded Boni was a minimum risk, which is why he ended up in a minimum-security prison, but that will likely change, said Allen.
The Correctional Service of Canada and the Beaver Creek Institution are investigating the escape.

Even for minimum security, how can a prisoner simply walk away? Does minimum security mean "no security"?

They have a "defined but not controlled" perimeter. Whatever that means.

Well, what it means is that a prisoner can walk away and hail a cab I guess, lol.

At the min security prison in High Level, it was a white painted log fence knee high.

They're counting on Canadians being too polite to cross it when they're not supposed to I suppose?

Oh I found it to be pretty amusing too. The people in the area are lucky that it was this guy who got out. I have a feeling that most people serving a life sentence would do whatever they think is necessary to avoid re-capture. Instead he has some fun at the casino and turns himself in.

I remember reading about a few POW camps they had in northern Ontario during WW2. Some of them didnt have fences or defined perimeters either simply because there was nowhere to escape to. They were in the middle of the woods. Naturally a few took their chances and wound up coming back on their own. haha

I thought you couldn't have cash in prison. If so, how could this guy tip
the cabbie, let alone pay for the ride....& what could he do at the casino
with empty pockets?

Couldn't he have saved up the 15 cents a day they get paid?

Whatever he made, is would be on paper in an account, so he couldn't
be robbed by his fellow 'roommates' I'd assume. He could use his account
to buy stuff from an 'in house' confectionery, etc....but having actual cash
leads to an "economy" that would be discouraged in prison, I'd assume.

I don't know but I do know that parking is now going to be a bitch at the prison. Everyone is going to have to deal with the long line up of cabs looking for a fare.

lol.

What is origin of no honor among thieves?
Answer:
Those who who have no moral scruples will lie cheat and steal amongst their thieving acquaintances...just as soon as they will against their honest "marks".

This could all be avoided if we just knee-capped our second degreemurder low-- risk-- offenders. Then when the cab came right to the prison the guards would be tipped off that there was a jailbreak.

What makes me wonder, is how that rap sheet gets you put into the low risk offender category.
