A massive prison break in Haiti has resulted in the escape of hundreds of inmates and the deaths of at least 25 people, including the prison's director and a notorious Haitian gang leader named Arnel Joseph.
The prison break occurred Thursday at the Croix-des-Bouquets Civil Prison in the capital of Port-au-Prince. As of late Friday, authorities had recaptured about 60 inmates and were still actively searching for more than 200 others, according to Haiti's secretary of state for communication, Frantz Exantus.
Gang violence in Haiti has mounted in recent years, and Joseph, the gang leader, had been among the country's most wanted fugitives before his arrest in 2019. He had been awaiting trial on charges of murder, rape and kidnapping.
Joseph was killed in a shootout with police after he escaped, Exantus said at a news conference. Joseph was riding on a motorbike through the city when police attempted to flag him down, according to Exantus. He was killed by police after opening fire.
Several of the 25 people killed were bystanders, authorities said, attacked by prisoners as they escaped.

Hopefully, they’ll get rounded up before Biden issues them all visas.
He may fly em over here.
Coming soon to a border near you!
Or as Biden calls them, “oppressed refugees”
Dude. It’s an ISLAND 🌴
unless you can really blend in I guess
Kameltoe on AF2 to bring them to America Last.
Capital punishment, Haitian style.
coming to a neighborhood near you!
I’m sure the breakout was due to this Joseph guy...and whoever killed him is my kind of guy, and brave as hell (and may well be dead now). He kept his head, figured out the plan, and made damn sure it was unsuccessful. Contrast that with the GOP responding to Democrats...
If everything I’ve heard, and read, is right, not even their next door,The Dominican Republic, hate Haitins so much they never let them in their side of the island! And, apparently, they get away with it!
