2. I'm sure there was no shortage of white supremacist-types stepping up...

...to foot the bail bill. No shortage. Hell, his own police union may have even helped facilitate.

9. Watch for some heavy duty money

 

via a Defense Team showing up for this Guy. This case is just to big for some so called local heavy weight,whom he thinks he is,to let handle this case. The GOP as well as the Right Wing Militarist will not let a Guilty Verdict stand.
