  1. No way this psycho should be out on bail and I can’t believe he wasn’t charged with attempted murder.

    There were people in that house and he knew it. Discharging a high powered rifle into the house could easily have killed one of the occupants. Our justice system is failing once again. Disgusting.

    I hope his employer finds out about this insane @sshole’s arrest and fires him.

  2. Hi

    Can you explain what “100 000 NO DEPOSIT BAIL WITH SURETY.” means?
    Did someone come up with the money before he was let out? Or does mean it that someone has to come up the money if he skips his court date.


  3. WOW you can go out and shoot up someones home and luckily not kill anyone inside even knowing there was a family ln the home at the time including a young child. Miraculously no one was shot or killed but it could have just as easily have gone the other way. And this jerk gets to walk out of jail return to work and live his normal life like he did nothing wrong. A 100,000 dollar bail with no cash put up now isn’t that nice yet someone with a minor breach charge gets to stay in jail with no bail or anything and he did not even try to hurt anyone at all but then again he did not shoot someones home up either threatning the life of the people inside. But I guess when you have the money to put up as collateral that is what counts I just hope that he follows all his conditions so that his mommy does not lose everything that she owns. Well lets see how the young man that got refused bail will make out when he returns to court. Maybe he can use the same excuse as Jordan Couch did that it was an accident. How can it be an accident when someone just pulls into a driveway and starts shooting someones home up that is far beyond my fathoming. Well I hope that when he finally goes to court he is found guilty and gets to spend a nice long sentence behind bars where he belongs because in my books that is what he deserves. Still trying to figure out our justice system because it sucks big time. Petty anti criminals get to go to jail but the murders and guys like this just get to walk around free as a bird. WOW sure do not know what is happening with our court system. Just my opinion that is all.
