Stupidity: When the policeman comes for the girls, the people run along a straight path, completely straight, without bothering to go over the fence right next to them or run in a different direction.

Question: At the beginning the tracker is quite determined to catch the girls. Later it seems that he deliberately misses their tracks (out of admiration for their cleverness and courage?), but then again he is seen all by himself trying to follow them. Is there any evidence from the book that he wanted them to make it home?
