Why was Carter's bond $50 and Gilbert's $2,000?
Does Gilbert have to pay $2,000 or 10% of $2,000.
D felony seems lenient for beating a police officer.
Will they serve time?

So sad this officer was trying to do his job. They should have to do time putting their hands on an officer of the law! A Class D felony is not good enough these men and women risk their lives for us and this is how they are treated! Unacceptable! SMDH!

Poor officer! So many "hood rats" running around causing nothing but trouble! I bet their parents are so proud of them! I wont drive on some streets when its dark..one time i did and a flock of people were walking in the road and wouldnt move and i honked and got flipped off...i know you dont have a car and your air force ones are your only means of transportation, but theres a side walk for a reason! People just think they can do whatever they want. I feel so bad for this officer!

I don't feel pity for him. Epd is a joke. I'm not a hood rat nor have I even been in trouble. Maybe if they weren't so openly corrupt they would get respect.

Both of these animals deserved a night stick across their skulls! Please prosecute this as a felony and don't reduce the charge. We need to crack down on these idiots.

Throw the book at these girls! This is a prime example of the lack of parenting. Please teach your children right from wrong when they are young so they do not make mistakes like this when they are young adults. RESPECT your elders and better yet RESPECT authority!
