  1. This is making mockery of the system; this man should be held locked up till the day of his Court case. An example should be made, and it should be tough enough to send a strong message to other miscreants. I find that the Law has been too soft, too lenient in these cases; too many gun shots, too many people being hurt and too many Firearms in such a small Island. I don’t think all of this was for self defense.
