  1. I think that maybe he shouldn’t be allowed to bond out. Most times if your out on bond and catch another charge your bond is revoked so why was his not revoked. on the 2nd and 3rd time being arrested? I hate to see anyone in jail unless they hurt another person or child or animal but this man was said to be bringing in heron into this city and that i consider as harming other people
