The guard was…wha?

You have got to be kidding me:

An inmate granted a new trial after his 2006 murder conviction was overturned escaped the Walker County Jail early Tuesday by overpowering an unarmed guard and fleeing in a car that had apparently been left for him, the sheriff’s department said….

(Sheriff’s Deputy Butch) Davis said the jail in Huntsville, about 60 miles north of Houston, is not fully staffed at that time of night.

Jail not fully staffed at that time of night, and what staff they have is, apparently, at least partially unarmed? Really?

“Trent De’Ray Archie, 29, of Huntsville, is considered armed and dangerous…”

But remember, friends, you don’t need guns because the police will protect you! Even if because of their own ineptitude the bad guys get out of custody!

    Why would a guard have a gun? The guard could be overcome by a prisoner and have the gun taken away. Then where would we be?
