I can't remember who the jackass was who said that I was full of it when I said that child molesting ex-cops get preferential bail treatment, but they basically said I had no idea what I was talking about. Well, here you go.
Sure, Castleberry ran. So if that's the reason, why not deny bail altogether? They could have, hell they tracked this guy across the globe and know he's a threat. And of course he did more of what the former cop is accused of doing, but to what degree are we OK with putting accused pedophiles back on the street? In the case of the ex-cop, that's the same street his victim lives on, from what I remember.
While they didn't deny bail, this non-cop is (rightfully) unable to meet what bail has been set. I hope they put him in with everyone else to wait out his trial, and it looks like he's guilty as charged. So I'm glad he won't be out on bond. But I don't think an ex-cop should get easier treatment.
