A bench warrant was issued Wednesday after a man accused of taking part in the shooting of an Augusta man failed to make his scheduled court appearance.

Stanley Fields is charged with aggravated assault, possession of a weapon during the commission of a crime and two counts of criminal attempted burglary in connection with the Feb. 18 incident at the former Merrick Place Apartments in west Augusta.

The victim, Wayne Eggins, was trying to stop Fields and his co-defendant, Aaron Bey, from breaking into his neighbor’s house when he was attacked and shot in the head.

Why in the world was this

Why in the world was this animal released on bond? The seriousness of these charges did not warrant being released.

Because some idot of a JUDGE let him out on bail instead of leaving him in jail where he belongs, now he can go shoot someone else.

I don't understand why he is

I don't understand why he is out on bond either. Not only is he a direct threat to society, he is also (now) a flight risk.

Why does everyone seem so

Why does everyone seem so shocked? Bench warrants for non-appearance are issued every week in Augusta.

Our society has decided that protecting its citizens from crime is a lower priority than providing cell-phone service "free" to low-income people. Protecting us from crime is a lower priority than providing subsidies to "green" energy businesses like Solyndra. And the list goes on.

As the left likes to say "you can't deny a man the right to kill his neighbor".

Why was this criminal given

Why was this criminal given bond? It's 25 to life for shooting the man, 5 years for the burglary, another 5 to 10 years for the possession of a firearm while committing a crime. That's 35 to 40 years. Why go to court? It's election time!

The answer to the question
Unpublished

The answer to the question "who let this crook out" is quite simple - we did, when we elected lawyers to represent us in the state house. The Judges are anything but judges in that they don't judge, they simply regurgitate what the legislature tells them what to do in their palaces of power. Begs the question of "are we a country of laws" and just who is the protected party in any legal action, civil or criminal?
