"We treat all cases the same."

Oh really. Then would the DA's office kindly like to tell me how often they set bail at an embarrassingly low $30,000 for for a damn child rapist who lives right down the street from the victim?

Sure, he's innocent until proven guilty, but so are the black and Hispanic and white ones who just so happen to not be former law enforcement officers.

Shenanigans.

Uhhh have you looked at the bond schedule? It's 20k for a first degree felony with no previous convictions. His bond is set at 30k. That doesn't sound like special treatment to me.

Uhhhh judges routinely go above and beyond the bond schedule.

Show me a black child rapist with this low of a bond.

JUDGES routinely go above the schedule. Not DAs. DAs don't set bonds, as I am sure you should know.

Sure, I misspoke. If they had requested a higher one, they would have gotten it, most likely.

I am sure you are aware of all of this because of all the times when you get criminal bonds set, right?

Do you have anything to base that upon? Which judge would have done that? Let me guess, you don't know because you don't practice criminal law.
