Let me see if I have this right: An adult male in an orange prison jumpsuit with his hands handcuffed in front and restrained by a waist chain is able to hide in a doorway near the courthouse and nobody noticed him?

And then this same adult male in an orange prison jumpsuit with his hands handcuffed in front and restrained by a waist chain walks down Green Street in Gainesville checking cars until he finds one with the keys in the ignition (who leaves their keys in their vehicle these days in the age of remote locks?) and nobody notices him?

And then this adult male in an orange prison jumpsuit with his hands handcuffed in front drives the stolen pickup truck to Atlanta, where he abandons it and presumably walks away on foot and nobody notices him?

And then this same adult male finds money for meals and money for a motel room?

Lots of questions to be answered here.
