VIDEO: Mich. Man Escapes From Squad

A 26-year-old suspect can be seen wriggling free from his handcuffs and climbing out of a locked West Bloomfield Township (Mich.) Police cruiser in a raw video released by the department.

Quincy Alexander, 26, of Detroit was initially arrested in a swampy area. Alexander can be seen in the back of the cruiser biting his handcuffs and slipping the cuff off his right wrist.

He then leans into the front of the cruiser and appears to lower the window on the rear passenger side door. He can be seen crawling out of the vehicle.

The escape caused a three-hour manhunt by four departments and two K-9 dogs to catch the suspect, accused of brandishing a knife while staying overnight with two women in the township.

Good grief! It's 2011! When are cops going to start a. cuffing in back, b. double locking cuffs, & c. NOT leaving prisoners unattended? The only thing worse would have been not searching him for weapons before a., b., and c.

I carried leg cuffs which I used quite often. It makes it hard to run or kick. Cops should routinely cuff behind the back and double lock the cuffs. If you cuff in front use a belly chain and in extreme cases cuff the leg cuffs to the hand cuffs.
