"Phillip Paul made a run for it while attending the Spokane County fair for a Eastern State Hospital field trip. Within minutes the hospital staff knew that he was missing, and they called the hospital to find out what their next step should be. That was when they were told not to call the police, and the length of time that Paul was missing continued to grow. They called again, and were told a second time that they should not call the police when they posed the question. This delay in the report created a two hour head start for Paul to be on the run."

Excuse me...but why would someone have to ask permission?
We should have a public review of this culture. Let's open this up. State employees and their union might want to have a say. They know where the problems exist.
