    Seems like a fairly small bond for a violent felony. I understand bond is not supposed to be a punishment, but this seems too low to guarantee he shows up for trial.

    Another fine example of respect for human life. It appears from the picture that the perpetrator may have walked into the police station on a prior occasion. That looks suspiciously like a mugshot. It's young men like this who are stirring the pot for political gun control speeches. I don't want his stupidity to make me lose the right to bear arms, because unfortunately, with fine young men toting their Christmas toys about and practicing, we need to be more protected ourselves.

    Do these folks know each other? If not and if this was just random, was Mr. Epps drug tested? Just saying that someone taking the time and effort to follow someone else, then shoot into their vehicle, is quite rare.
