    When is enough enough? How many times a week do we hear of someone arrested again with multiple warrants; too many times.
    The Dancing Grannies are a prime example of what happens when you put violent criminals back in the street.
    What is worse is their are associations bailing people out of jail when the charges are serious so the Bailee commits yet another violent crime.

    It can’t possibly be Ross’ fault; he is obviously the victim of a racial society!!! Lock’m up, let’m out, I’d probably still be in jail with no bond for shooting a squirrel out of season.
