Well at least the bonds were high for the first two criminals.

But the others should have been given
a bond, despite it the crime was different.

Police kept the incident in Candler from residents while shutting down the entire Big Cove loop area for many hours leaving folks stranded with NO explaination. I had frightened teens staying with me overnight who were turned away from getting home. Even a day later the police refused to give any answers...it is not reasonable or acceptable for the local authorities to be so silent in any situation that impacts the public like this did.

I am glad to see appropriate bonds set in the first two cases.

TLJ,
Shut up and quit whinning!! If you needed to know something, they would have told you. Maybe they were busy keeping a subject contained and not posing a threat to you.

To TJL Would you want those teens life in danger or would rather know what was going on at that time while officers were at work, protecting the community and risking their lives! Sometimes its not an appropriate time to give out information, you know there is a privacy act in almost every thing you do these days.

The kids were not inside the area wanting out...they were outside wondering if something had happened to their family which they were seperated from. I simply wanted an answer to give them. They also wanted to feel safe the next day when they went home...that's not too much to ask is it.

Lets Just Pretend that something did happen to one of their family members. What do you think would have happened then?? I know what I would do, I would try to force my way in one way or another to get to my family. Some folks are like that. And besides, if something had happened to their family, don't you think worrying for 10 hours would have been worse on them? The less the public knows during a heated situation, the better until it's all resolved. It keeps anyone else from putting themselves in a position to take unnecessary risks. I don't think they acted unreasonably at all. It just kills people not to know all the details.

why waste 10 hrs. on this worthless piece of dung.
aim for center mass and be done with it. he'll be turned loose and then he'll really get somebody. assualt on a law enforcement official should be met with deadly force and then let the coronor sort out the deadly details.

While I fully agree, its hard to hit someone who has locked himself back in his house after shooting at a deputy. Once the negotiation starts its tough to kill him and have a clean shoot.

Let's keep going with the "let's pretend." Let's pretend you and the others found out what was going on got on cell phones and started calling others related to those in the neighborhood... and those people came running to see what was going on... and people started calling 911 to find out what was going on... and tied up the lines so other emergencies couldn't be reported... and distracting officers on the scene by repeatedly asking questions that had no good answers at the time.

Sometimes it's best to just back off and let LEOs do what they're trained to do. Take the kids to Mickey D's for a coke and chill.
