if he was headed S to the

if he was headed S to the homeland they should have let him go.

Any Takers?

He skips bond.

The name sounds Latin...

The name sounds Latin... he's about 20years old.... he has special rights. The DA too embarrassed to actually CHARGE him with anything. What in the hell is our country turning into?????

I got $20 says hes Illegal

Any takers?

Wait a Minute

he's 20; she's 14.

She left a dance on Friday night and she was not found with him until Saturday night?

Drug possesion on top of that.

And he can get out of jail on a $2500 bond?

That was question #-1. How can the DA not call for a higher bond?

Here comes challenging question #-2. Was he in the country legally?

What does this have to do

What does this have to do with his residency status? Wouldn't you be just as enraged if his name was Tom?

Yes I would

be just as outraged if his name was Tom or Tomas.

I'm also wondering how such a low bail amount could be set for someone who took a 14 year old with him and had drugs in his vehicle.

I'm also wondering where the 14 year old's parents were.

Of course, I also wonder why you could not come up with your own unique identity on this website.

wait a minute

What's our country coming to... the guys mother must work as a house keeper for the DA. We need to adopt the Arizona law. Anything to get rid of the illegals!!!

been saying this for years

it was fine wile they were maken the rich richer.
but the rich are spending twice as much for prop. they cant sale. I wonder wy???? do you think it might just be because the middle class cant afford to buy their homes. or any thing else for that matter. sence they have all been un employed because all the jobs were given to the illegals!!!!
what a scam by our gov. to get the money from the rich. wile every one else suffers. who figures.
histery has a way of repeating its self dont it??>??
just like when reefer madness began....
