if u do the crime u do time but there has not been a trial yet. Innocent until proven guilty. Bail would have been very expensive and we thought that money should be spent on his legal defense. Politics of jail can be difficult to navigate. You do not want to be pushed around so you do crazy things. He is in his mid 20s. Now, do you remember all the crazy illegal stuff you did and were never punished for at that age? 80 days in the hole is a long stretch for a kid who has never been charged with a serious crime in his life until now. But forget all my soft on crime whiney liberal crap.
I hired on this kid at a solar company and within 2 years he was the youngest crew leader at a large multi state company. He had stock options and was probably making 50 k a year. Sky was the limit. He has now gone from a taxpayer to a tax sucker and as a society that costs us allot.
