They won't do shit except demand Black people vote for Biden again. This Senate is destroying our fucking legal standing in this country for the benefit of Manchin and that bitch from AZ. If they don't pass voting rights, with this climate, we are in fucking trouble.Will the Democrats pass special hate crimes legislation because of this?
Why not post a link or something.....
Cause he shot a black person. His age means nothing his race does. He was aligator bait. Did you know these savages use to feed alligators black babies? It’s history repeating itself.What I still don't understand.....an adult intentionally used his gun to shoot a child......
Why was there bail in the first place?!
"Compounded by the fact that the defendant was able to make his bond"....racist slick talk....people are angry that the low bond indicates the level of concern that the court has for a 6 year old Black child being shot...slick talk takes away from the question of why was the initial bond so low and what is going to happen to the judge whose decision had to be overturned by an emergency meetingWhy not post a link or something.....

Man who allegedly shot 6-year-old back in custody after court increases his bail following community outcry

A man is back behind bars after community outcry over his release on a $10,000 bail for allegedly shooting a 6-year-old boy.
Ryan Le-Nguyen is back in custody after his bail was increased to $100,000 during a hearing Thursday, Eli Savit, Washtenaw County prosecuting attorney told USA TODAY.
Washtenaw sheriff deputies responded to calls that a 6-year-old had been shot in Ypsilanti Township, Michigan on Sunday. They found the boy suffering from a non-life-threatening gunshot wound. He was taken to the hospital for treatment and later released.
An altercation between the boy, a 14-year-old and 9-year-old occurred with Le-Nguyen prior to the shooting, Derrick Jackson, Washtenaw Sheriff’s Office public information officer, told USA TODAY.
The incident was captured on video by a Ring camera and showed children running down a sidewalk when a gunshot goes off.

Le-Nguyen was charged with assault with intent to murder, assault with intent to do bodily harm and two firearms charges.
In Michigan, assault with intent to murder carries a lesser sentence than attempted murder, and prosecutors chose the one with the most significant penalties, Savit said.
Le-Nguyen was arraigned on Monday and later bonded himself out on the lower $10,000 bail.
Jackson said the sheriff’s office received a lot of calls from people upset in the community about the bond but noted the sheriff's office doesn’t set bonds.
“It’s a prosecutorial process and judicial decision,” Jackson said.
The outcry from the community and disagreement with the magistrate's court decision led the Washtenaw County prosecutor's office to file an emergency motion to cancel Le-Nguyen's bond.
“We share in the community's pain and anger from a child being shot. And we know that, for many, the pain and anger is compounded by the fact that the defendant was able to make his bond as set by the court,” Savit said in a Facebook post Wednesday.
During the hearing, Le-Nguyen's bond was upgraded to $100,000 and he was taken back into custody without incident.
“We are glad the defendant is back in custody, to ensure the safety of the community,” Savit said. “[He] was shot in the arm, but a couple of inches over and he would be dead.”
