His bail should be higher and he should be locked up for twenty years.

So sad.... you know the problem is we don't keep them locked up long enough the first time.My sister is a heroin addict.. they bailed her out the first time (her druggie bf) the second time she did7mos.... in Ocean county... I am hoping now that she is home she will continue to do well.. Maybe if they helped them by keeping them locked up, and gave the proper counseling needed... they wouldn't re-offend.
