    Wow, this is a perfect example of how pathetic the "injustice" system! Sounds like Eric Holder was on the bench for this one. I know a few people that got a higher bond for a fucking bag of weed! This bitch steals over a $100,000 and has to pay $1,000 to get out?????????? Next is a slap on the wrist and 6 months of non reporting probation.
