I feek very sorry for Joe Byrneswife and child, but he did skip bail, his co accused seved prison sentences so surely he should have to face due process. If he is guilty, and that is IF he should not get away with it just because he was in America for 10 years.
It should be remembered that one of the victims of his alleged crimes was an eldery woman who had her lifes savings robbed.
