    Another felon with a handgun…and government still wants to take them away from and make it harder for law abiding citizens to have a gun.

    I don\t understand the bond rates!! This man is under a million plus bond while the drunk driver who hit a child and mother is only on a bond of $5,700. Anyone want to explain this?

    • dewey

      @ alicia….he’s black, a flight risk and anything else you could think of….as you can see, they did, hence the high bond……..the white chick, Fox 8 can’t get it right….first it was 5700, then it was 7500 and now it’s 500000…..was the judge/magistrate in the back rolling D&D dice just pulling figures out of the air
