    Yeah Joe, while you are at it, why should we hold accused school shooters, serial killers or multiple child sexual abusers in jail - pretrial? Because there is a thing called risk and threat assessment, risk of flight, a past history of criminality or violence. Think before clicking on "submit a comment"
