    Like you said the rap sheet keeps them out of the military...and most jobs as well...and in the meantime life goes on...what do you expect them to do? All efforts to straighten up are fruitless...sad.

    Rargos, you're right about that, slap on the wrist, that's why there's so many Repeat Offenders out there. It makes me sick to even think about it, and it's all ages too, that are too lazy to get a job and work, to scared to join the military, well it's too late for most of them now, their rap sheets will keep them out of the military, the judicial system will keep them out of prison, guess it's up to us to keep them out of our homes!

    What is the basis of the bail amounts? Is it a test to see if they can come up with the money, and THEN RUN? Or...is it chosen on the belief that they can't, and thus will stay in jail?? If the latter, why not just make the bail $2 million ???

    Looks like Clinton faired better on his way down than Tremaine. LOL

    No doubt a slap on the wrist. Bet you he makes bail the same day and be back at it again

    No doubt one or both will sue the builder and the apartment complex for not having made stronger ceilings and causing their fall.
