Most bizarre statement on jail explosion

Jon Stewart would have fun with this statement from Escambia County Public Information Bill Pearson that he told the media at the county’s first and only press conference on the April 29 jail explosion:

“From everything that we’ve been told–we’ve actually gone through our 9-1-1 calls–we did not receive any calls about a gas leak before the explosion took place.”

I checked with my sources who work at the jail. The phones that inmates are allowed to use to call family blocked from making 9-1-1 calls.
