  1. They should not be termed as youths, but rather young criminals. That bail is too little, set example common I am pissed with the judiciary.

  2. Bail of $5,000. How sweet! Very romantic. Did they get some red roses when they were leaving?

  3. Hhmmmm guess the police found what they needed for themself to keep so they sending their boys back out to hustle again commsence they will not hold they drug dealers who eles will they trust to run the streets for them you think all police good no sir some are loyal yes but some in the game to long they kill my kids father when he was about to expose the one that was handing him all the assets but god don’t sleep it will take years but you that officer will get you coming share it’s not easy to get out from those boss police hands it’s either you lay down or stay down meaning you will not ruin my life you street dog I’m the law who will they believe but when the yutes have the evidence they kill them by them self or they send others to do it and make it look like is war on blocks smh

    • You must be jacked up on some sort of crack or something to speak that crap. What does their bail have to do with the police. It is obvious that you have no clue how the justice system works here. The police have no jurisdiction over the courts and are therefore unable to influence decisions of the courts. The imposition of fines or other penalties is solely that of the presiding Magistrate or Judge and not the police.
