    Everyone one a a right to bail in this country, except for certain crimes. I guess sticking a gun in the ribs of a woman shopping in the safety of a supermarket aisle and demanding her money isn’t covered.

    and this is why I carry my service weapon when I go shopping. I can almost say with certainty that he would of been shot and killed if I saw that weapon pointed at someone else
