Then that should tell you that there is something wrong with the "law". What was the point of the guy with the loaded weapon? He knowingly walked into a public grocery store, where children probably were present, with a loaded weapon that was essentially an M16 rifle that military personnel carries. Suppose that clown suddenly flipped out and decided to start shooting? Suppose someone mistook him for someone that was whacko and planted a bullet in his brain? What was his purpose? Showing off? Being a ****? It was a stupid thing to do, and any law that allows that to occur in a public place is a stupid law. It's just as stupid as a street guy getting 20 years in jail for a few rocks of crack cocaine, yet some white-collar professional being sentenced to rehab and probation. You can justify it however you want, but it's completely illogical that a prank phone call could get you federal charges, yet a stroll into a grocery store with a semi-automatic only gets you scolded. Only in the south....
I guess you must be a Northerner, if you don't like the way things are done here in the SOUTH then go back where you came from!!

I personally knew Bryant Hairston. Even in the years we went to day care together, Bryant was very aggressive when it came to girls. The pursuit of sex came to him even at a young age. Also the fact that he called in a gunman to draw attention away from the rape/assault and battery charge is the real irony. Here in Martinsville, where he is from, are still shocked. Not only did he gives this town a bad name he also more than likely made UVa Wise think twice before accepting a student from this area. Bryant has a twin brother named Benton who attends UVa Wise with him. His family is probably going through a tough time knowing Byrant is facing federal charges but it still doesn't give him the right to get away. Also all of you that are so concerned about race.....he isn't complete black. He's mixed with white as well just like our president isn't black. They are mixed with white. Judging someone's possible charges based of race just proves how ignorant you are to the actualities of the truth.....I'm black you don't see me judging everyone......Just saying.....

Yeah the guy that allegedly shot that girl is in jail in Duffield. But the guy who called in the gun hoax, I mean what did he expect would happen to him? You can't call in something like that and think you can get a slap on the wrist. Law enforcement ain't playing with stuff like this especially right after a deadly school shooting. You can joke about some stuff, but that's a little extreme. This must be a cry for help or him just wanting to be known for something.

Some people do get out on bond to await trial. For instance the baby killer from wise is out until her court date in Nov.

People have a right to reasonable bail unless they are a flight risk or are considered dangerous.

He should be fried. He is defective and not worth fixing, considering everything else we could fix instead.

A college student at the UVa Campus called in a Gunman alert to Campus police, who then reported to higher authorities within the county. The individual later stated that it was a prank. Therfor is being charged with falsely filing a polive report, endangering the well being of a group of human beings. Spooking both campus police and authorities. And causing a seizure with another college student in the Slemp Center.

mistaken and wrong? Is that what you'd call a person who robs a convenience store or molests a child? LOL, the idiot lied to feds, that's a 5 year prison term crime right there.
