    Ouch. Now the bail is going to be set at $5k since the woman died.

    I don't get it. So no one was going to look for them if she lived? Article says police were looking for the men BECAUSE the woman died. I know they were looking for them for murder but it is worded as if they would not be looking if she lived.

    Isn't wrist-slapping considered cruel and unusual punishment and therefore unconstitutional by the ACLU?

  • please-stand-by Feb 27, 2009

    Yeah, MadBiker, their wrists will sure be sore after the severe slapping they're in for!

    Nope, don't need no gun control. Lets make them real easy to get so that they are cheap enough on the street for every low life punk that wants one.

    These fellows are bound to get some serious probation time now!
