Ummm why was he allowed to bail out?

Shouldn't he have been held with no bail until the pistol was run through ballistics and the serial number traced? You could have let a murderer out on the streets. Shoddy police work!!!

The police don't let anyone

The police don't let anyone out, judges do that. And how do you know the gun wasn't tested?

They are their own best

They are their own best customers. It's sad that people will destroy themselves with that poison. It rots their souls and their bodies.

And then they contaminated that room with hazardous chemicals.

It's getting so that you have to really look hard to find a safe hotel in the CSRA.
