Why is the bail amoutn so low? Didn't he fire a shot at state troopers? Nice way for the judge to de-value the lives of our law enforcement officers!

As a former resident of Schuykill County I can say there are a lot of folks way behind the tmes living there. Not ALL of Schuykill County, mind you, but in the back woods there are lots of people that are still there with the same narrow-minded, biggoted mentality that's been there for generations & generations. It makes me very happy to live in Bethlehem, PA since I moved here almost 9 years ago.

Sure, the price of living is a lot lower in some parts there, but then again some things are worth a lot more to my family & me.

I live in the area that this happened and am disturbed to see the bail amount so low!! Especially after shooting at a State Trooper - there should be no bail in this case.

On another note - thank you to all of you who put your lives on the line and keep the rest of us safe.
