  1. And, ladies and gentlemen, you can bet your last dollar that they will be granted bail! (And by the way, is it possible that the Glock pistol fou d with these two hoodlums is the missing Glock from BCF??? Just asking on behalf of a friend.

  2. ” …..for the purpose of Bail hearing” – I don’t understand this, in my world these men should not even be given a bail hearing, they should both be locked up, awaiting Jail time, and lots of it. I wish to congratulate the Cops for a job well done, keep it up.

  3. Good works cops…now onto the real promoters of gun violence aka the people running the judicial system (aiding and abetting).
