I Guess It All Depends...

...on your definition of risk.

(CBS4) CAMBRIDGE - Neil Entwistle wants to get out of jail and return to his home country of England while awaiting trial for the murders of his wife and baby girl in their Hopkinton home.

Lawyers for Entwistle filed a motion in Middlesex Superior Court, arguing their client has cooperated with authorities and is not a flight risk.

Technically speaking, he wouldn't be a flight "risk". He's told the judge he wants to flee the country at the first available opportunity. This puts him firmly in the category of flight "guarantee".

Which, around here, usually means "Have a safe trip!".
