    With a criminal record that long, this rat has proven he is not able or fit to live in society. He shouldn’t even be able to have a bond set. Why is he even breathing good air after doing all those things on his ‘lengthy record?’ Can’t the cops put enough pressure on him to make his tell them who the other rat is? Or is he too calloused for that?

    Prople can only vote for who is available… and sadly a lot of folks don’t care enough about their community to vote at all…..but I’ve yet to see a judge or anyone for that matter run for office demanding or even suggest they be held accountable for the recidivistic crooks they continually return to society.

    Aren’t these judges elected by the majority? What does that tell you about the majority of the people around us? Or is that only me……..

    Lengthy rapsheet is right and guess what? Mr. “Sexual assault of a child” will be right back on the streets paroled by some insane judge who thinks everone deserves and 62nd chance. Judges who release criminals into our communities like this should be held accountable for the demons they set loose. My dos pesos.

    Wells Fargo should go after Harris county. For letting this worthless scum of a human back on the streets after all he has done. He should be locked up and throw the key away or death. Don’t let him out he will end up killing a innocent person.

    Not exactly the Lee Majors rags to riches story a prudent woman would want to marry in to but he did navigate the penal system going from being a two bit punk to being The Million Dollar (bond) Man.
