After a nearly two-week-long manhunt, officers in Pennsylvania sparked controversy by posing for a photo with the captured convict who escaped, Danelo Cavalcante.

According to an article published by Forbes, the nearly two-week manhunt for the convict who escaped, convicted murderer Danelo Cavalcante, ended controversially as nearly thirty officers in Pennsylvania posed for a photo with the escaped prisoner upon his capture.

The image of the convict who escaped has sparked both praise and criticism, with Pennsylvania State Police Lt. Col. George Bivens defending the officers while former Philadelphia Police Commissioner Charles Ramsey labeled it as “unprofessional.”

The photo, captured from a CBS Philadelphia helicopter, depicts a group of camouflaged officers surrounding Cavalcante, the convict who escaped, who was wearing a green Philadelphia Eagles sweatshirt. Ramsey criticized the image, dubbing it a “trophy photo,” and urged officers to maintain professionalism.

During a press conference following Cavalcante’s arrest, Bivens commended the officers for their hard work under challenging circumstances and expressed pride in their accomplishments, particularly in capturing the convict who escaped.

He remained untroubled by the controversy surrounding the photo.

According to an article published by Mirror, former acting FBI director Andrew McCabe acknowledged the sentiment behind the photo but cautioned against actions that might create an impression of self-congratulation, as it could harm the public’s perception of law enforcement and the convict who escaped.

The massive manhunt involved 500 officers, including those from Chester County, Pennsylvania State Police, FBI, Border Patrol, and U.S. Marshals, highlighting the extensive effort to capture the convict who escaped, Danelo Cavalcante.
