I seen it with my own eyes, why wasn't Courson in handcuffs for the bond hearing. I have been in that court room many of times over the years and inmates waiting for bond hearing, they were in jail issued jumpsuits and handcuffs and legcuffs and were there for lesser charges than murder, so why was this allowed different for Courson?

Hmmmmmmmmmmmmm, that's strange. Anytime I've seen a bond hearing they were always handcuffed and wearing jumpsuits too. Was he wearing street clothes?

Okay, forget the above question. Just saw the story on WTOC and they show pictures from today. He is clearly wearing a suit! Wow

Courson's lawyer probably requested the suit and no handcuffs but did not impress the judge by no means..Looks like too much evidence against Courson.

I do not appreciate this comment at all.
I did not like what I saw either...I am a white, female and I thought he should have been in handcuffs. My teenagers saw the pics and their first thoughts/questions were WHY wasn't he in handcuffs? I think many WHITE people feel the same way.
I am in no way racist. I think comments like yours and people continuing to make those kinds of statements is why we continue to have race issues.
CHANGE Your THINKING!!!

Who was the insurance agent that testified in court today?

Also, how could he take loans out on automobiles that he does not own?

Way I am thinking that is why he took out the insurance policy, hoping that would take care of his criminal activity when he killed Mandy that he had an insurance policy on.

You know what sickens me, is that Mandy loved this man to no end and he ended her life and she knew till her last breath, that the man that she loved so much was taking her life, What he took was the life that was the mother of his child. How heartless do you get, Thank God her child survived through all this.

Do you know which bank all this occurred at? Wonder why they let him continue this? Looks like after he got 1 loan and never produced a title, they would not have done anymore. Also, why did he need loans so much? Gambling debts?

Lady that testified said she was from Interstate Credit Union. That is common practice for car dealer's but I agree about 2 nd loan.
