  1. 5000.00 dollars bail?
    I'm a driver and mate should get more bail than that. Respect someone else's life


  2. Is this a joke? Really,$5000.00 for taking a life and fleeing the scene of an accident. The justice system is a big joke.

    A young man is arrested for growing 18 marijuana plants in his yard is offered bail at $18000.00. I can take a life and walk free but if I grow a plant I go to jail. Bull shit.


  3. Oh my Disco! How did that happen? Why you did not report it? What were you doing up there so early? Questions questions questions??
