All righty, this is really one for the books! The title of this blog should be: “A Complete Guide to the Persuasive Mind of an Inmate.” However, according to this glib inmate Hossein Nayeri, pictured above, who quips about Orange County law enforcement, it could be called “The Reality Distortion Club.” Hossein is of course, referring to the “incompetency” of Orange County law enforcement and their inability to cite the correct information regarding their infamous 2016 escape from the OC jail. He just wants to set the record straight.
So, his attorney has obliged and released the full escape video to the press – minus the music, because it would infringe on some copyright issues. Music, too???
Nayeri proclaims OC grossly overstated their daring escape and in part, he also had a personal vendetta against OC Sheriffs and just wanted to get some tacit revenge by staging this prison break. His vendetta stems from a subsequent conviction he received from Orange County. Has there ever been a more irreverent criminal who has gone to such limits – a jail break – to raise questions about justice and law in the US? Oh, but there is more irony. One of the three escapees is requesting the $180,000 reward for their capture by their own surrender! Did you get that one? Whatever. Only in America, huh?
But let’s continue. As you listen to Hossein’s narrative, and please watch the filmed escape and listen to his account, many questions will race across your mind as you are mesmerized, and to some extent, calmed by his melodic voice. You begin to anticipate each of his words. Questions arise, such as WHAT were you thinking, or WHAT possessed you to make this escape knowing one or all of you could be shot? Remember, the press and media profiled you as a reincarnate Hannibal Lecter. That ought to raise some rifles, guns and eyebrows, oh yes! Overall you will ask, who the heck helped you get the cell phone, the ropes, and the clothing smuggled into the OC jail? That seems to be a bigger problem. I guess that’s part of the incompetency he is citing about OC jail!
In closing, the videos are included to watch at your leisure. You will feel totally entertained by a convict. Quite unique at best. Oh by the way, here are some of the charges these three inmates/escapees have racked up:
- Bac Duong: Charge: Attempted Murder
- Jonathan Tieu: Charge: Murder
- Hossein Nayeri (Narrator): Charge: Kidnapping, Torture
