    Chris you should be ashame of yourself. You almost kill four people over two dollars. They should never reduce your bail who ever did this should think of those whom you hurt.

    Why was there a bail reduction? How can you recklessly use a firearm and fire shots indiscrimately, because you felt that you are untouchable. What is the logic behind the bail reduction. Where is the law to protect the victims. It is bad enough that a single mother of four was shot in both hands and be hospitalized, but, somehow you were given a bail reduction. Three people got wounded plus your intended victim. We know tomorrow it will be business as usual. You run the Route my boy.

      You are so correct, however it would be more meaningful and balanced if you consider it against the five police officers who are currently accused of ruthlessly beating a man to death. They are out zero dollars bail. For that matter they may never be charged due to various” technicalities”. So according to the police commissioner: “whats good for the goose is good for the gander.” So allow the law to take its course.
