?Despite taking suitable precautions, the jail authorities
underestimated Evans?far-sightednessand commit

Dear Student
There were lots of slip-ups on the part of the authorities in underestimating their opponent. For instance, Stephens would be held responsible for his action of taking McLeery to the main prison gates even though he could not have fathomed that Evans would play a trick on them. He was diligently performing his duty in accompanying him personally to make sure that the prisoner had no opportunity for escape after McLeery left the cell. However, to prevent such a case,he should have performed a check on the departing man then it would not have led to such a confusion. Evans banked on the officer making such a common mistake or what can be termed as a negligence of duty because he was much smarter than the officers. He figured out the loopholes through which his plan could succeed.
