Gees, maybe if there were jobs here and things to do, these two, along with others. wouldn't have to revert to drug dealing as employment. It gets worse folks.To those of you on unemployment benefits , when your last check is given to you,where will you get the next check to pay your bills? just might see your name on the Police briefs

What strikes me is the fact that the Judges just about give these fools a free ride back to the streets with low bails and especially when the people involved are on probation or out on bail already for the same types of offenses!
Stop the revolving door routine!

What did the judge do wrong? Bail is not to keep people off the streets. It is about flight risk.

No,that is a misconception,bail is inclusive of the level of danger the bailee may pose to the public safety!
Yes the risk of flight is part of it but not all!

It would take several years before my well dried out.. But crime would never be an option. There is state and federal aid, family and part-time work. I'd work at Wal-mart before I exposed my child to seeing me do crime..

I am not sure if that is true (though I will concede that I am not an expert). There is no proof that the person even did the crime until it is determined in court. Just because the police and DA make an allegation does not mean that it even happened. The newspaper is even less reliable. But even if you are correct, it would be the judges option to have a high bail set not yours or mine. He would have better information regarding the case and the defendant's prior history. That's my compromise position to you...

Fine,the Judges have been notorious for setting low bails for sex offenders,repeat offenders,and people already on probation and with other charges already pending!
In my estimation it is necessary for the Judges to start protecting the public from these career punks!

I am for tough sentences and jail time for all violent criminals. I am just not sure I agree with you on the bail issue. But it sounds like we are in agreement with the protection of the general public.

For instance,Judges release on personal recognizance sex offenders who are charged with failure to register their adress as ordered by the court! In essence by not telling the court officials where they reside they have fled the courts jurisdiction,if they can't be located they cannot be checked on!
This presents a clear and present danger to the public!
Are you saying that you believe bails are set at correct levels ?

There are certain individuals that already work there. What will you do kick them out, to take thier place. Or if you were single or married with no children {from which most crimesters breed from. What would you do if your 7-8 $$ an hr. folds and there still is no work.

There are people that do not have nest eggs or services for helping them thru hard times such as yourself and many others are in shelters ect. And let us not forget about the elite that are in jail who are criminals, Madoff ect. lawyers doctors, police, politicians and officials from Fed., state, county,city town and village. which have a well known breed of criminal activities and rap sheets. On ALL LEVELS
