    Very breathless. Lack of capital letters makes it feel even more breathless. There are three discrete sentences here, not one overly complex one.


    Sucre and T bag will jump over the wall and michel will be close on their heels
    Michael or Michel or even Mitchell??

    sucre and t bag will have dumped their prison clothes in the nearby dumpsters but not michel

    everyone will be baffled as to why he doesn't just dump his clothes with the rest of them

    Poor construction is an error

    Please note that in grammatical written English, capital letters in the correct places are necessary, and that correct punctuation is also necessary. If you would like guidance on these, do ask.

    Grammatical is also correct in this context > of or pertaining to grammar or obeying the rules of grammar
