Union officials representing prison workers in Michigan are blaming budget cuts and privatization of services in state prisons for contributing to the escape of a convicted killer in Ionia. Governor Snyder downplayed the allegations from the unions. Michael Elliot was caught in Indiana nearly 24-hours after breaking free while wearing a white prison kitchen worker's uniform. Michigan Department of Corrections Director Dan Heyns says they will determine what went wrong at the Ionia Correctional Facility late Sunday.
