  1. i don get it. why would they even consider alower bail ? to me understanding he is accused of a second murder , i think they should double this animals bail!

  2. Bail is a right, it’s not normal for bail to be denied despite what you see on TV. The bail went from 5 to 7 million when they charged him with a 2nd murder. Pretty high, and I doubt any bond company in their right mind would put up their money to help this guy go free.

    Eddie- LPD has no control over the courts, how are they to blame??

  3. Na,na. If they’d dream of letting him out(although they wouldn’t in a million years) HE’S gonna be needing the bullet proof vest. I wouldn’t worry about the vest though, I think I’d take a few shots at the legs first just to get him screaming a bit. Let him relax for half an hour or so while making sure he doesn’t lose to much blood. We wouldn’t want him dying yet. The rest,I’ll leave to your imagination and creativity. Maybe we can have him brought to the town square and we can all take turns at giving him some of his own medicine.

  4. Wish they would use him as target parctice. IF HE IS PROVEN GUILTY,

    Some people already have the claim that he is just the fall guy. What’s next. he didnt do it- it was the gun, it was his poor upbringing, he had bad friends, he gre up in the slums….

    I just want to know when is LPD going to crack down on these thugs when they are juvinilles and get them when they are doing just petty theft. otherwise they just grow up knowing they can get away with hings and “graduate tot he next level” . First petty theft, then burglaries, then drugs, then murderers.

    We saw what is available when LPD wanted to catch this murderer. we need to Save LAKWOOD NOW!!!! its already becoming the next Trenton, Camden, Newark slums.

  5. 18- I’m with you. But the problem is that as long as the gangs, thugs etc are thought to only commit crimes against eachother no one cares. As long as people turn a blind eye and don’t want to give the LPD the resources they need to proactively fight crime it won’t happen. When the officer was killed law enforcement from around the state poured in to help- they drove with the LPD, they hunted for this guy. Everyone dropped everything and focused on finding him. That won’t happen every day- and until we are able to give the LPD more training and more manpower there is only so much they can do in a day. They can’t be proactive when they have less than 10 officers patrolling, and they have to run from call to call.

  6. I hope everyone remembers the fact that He murdered a Cop in cold blood for no reason. And now a woman will suffer for the rest of her life b/c her soul mate wanted to make a difference everyday when he went to work.. This piece of trash is worth nothing and there is no excuse for what he did. He made a choice that day to shoot and should now pay the price for that.

  7. To #3 you better go back to bed and tell another bedtime story, innocent until proven guilty, you make me sick………. He is the lowest of the low, does not even compare to a wild animal, he is more like the spawn of the devil. And to #10 I am totally with you. I think he should be let out in the Town Center and we all torture him alittle at a time and then do it all over again. No mercy on his soul, since he does not have one. Why are we going to leave him in prison for the rest of his life, so he can lift weights, watch TV and socialize and who will be taking care of him, WE WILL with our tax dollars. He is a parasite and should be destroyed like one. And I am not talking about euthanasia like we do with our pets, that is to humane. So to all of you that say innocent until proven guilty, bet you would not be singing that song if it was your loved one that was executed, now would you????????????
