  1. Sierra Hotel LEO’s. This is a perfect example of someone who needs to stay in jail. We all know the Court Commissioner will release him. If he gets out there should a large cash bail, GPS tracking and a daily check-in with the DOC. If he commits another crime while out, he goes to jail and NO BAIL.

    1. Isn’t that amazing. I was just thinking I haven’t seen what the court commissioners were doing. Been about a week now since the articles have reported that kind of info.

  2. its a good ting that search warrants have to be signed- off on by judges. I can imagine the police taking liberties, not knowing where the draw the line + having a field day if they could just search someones stuff at their leisure. Sometimes, with a search warrant, they don’t have a sufficient reason for taking things + they are helping themselves.
