    They'll def let him out in a couple of months, where he'll catch 'another' charge, & they'll just do that process over again. How else are they gonna keep getting paid?!?!

    "Cant the same be said of repeat offenders in other counties we read about all the time?? Its not just a Durham issue as its a Raleigh issue also from the reports lately..."

    Yes, but for the life of me living in Durham I can't understand how the awful leaders of Durham get reelected time after time, scandal after scandal. The city and county governments both have a tremendous amount of debt and no one seems to even care.

    "Good work Durham PD! Although they're probably already back out on the streets again."

    You think the guy being held on $1M bond can come up with the $150K he needs to bail out? Unless he's got a really rich relative, I'm thinking he's staying in jail for the duration.

    Good work Durham PD! Although they're probably already back out on the streets again.

    Catch and release is great way to preserve fish populations but in Durham it seems to be used to preserve the voting base to keep the crooks running the city government.

    "probably keep up with current events and politics religiously."

    no, but I'm sure they're still encouraged to vote.

    I'm sure these guys vote and probably keep up with current events and politics religiously.

    This is why there are so many of them in prison.....they are committing most of the crimes. Think about it.
