    LEO's..What would happen in the US??

    Very interested to hear what would happen in the US, after the 2 were arrested they have been let-out on bail........Sucks to me!!

    FYI it appears the"gun" was a starting pistol

    Shots fired in Haywards Heath attempted robbery (From The Argus)


    Two men were arrested after a gun was fired in an attempted robbery at a chemists.

    The men, in their teens, were arrested after the raid at Lloyds Pharmacy in Middle Village, Bolnore, near Haywards Heath, at 4pm on Monday.

    Police said one man walked into the shop and fired two shots from a handgun towards the ceiling.

    He fled empty-handed. Staff were described as shocked but unhurt. They declined to talk about their ordeal yesterday.

    A spokesman for Sussex Police said: "Following immediate police enquiries and a search of the area two men, both aged 19 were arrested at different locations nearby. There was no violence or injury during the arrests. There was no damage to the building."

    Anyone with information is asked to call Sussex Police on 0845 6070999 0845 6070999.

    If your question is, would such BGs as the two you mentioned be allowed out on bond here in the US, the answer is almost certainly YES. Except for limited situations, bail can't be denied. It can be set high enough that it can't be raised. Conditions can be set such as house arrest and the wearing of ankle bracelets.

    It is true that they could get bail pending trial. However, that assumes, at least in my jurisdiction in Georgia, that they aren't shot dead on the spot by the pharmacist or one of the patrons. There are plenty of citizens who carry concealed in Georgia and who know how to use what they carry.

    we should have a secret criminal system, ship all the felons to china or russia and let them do what they decide with them. Imagine all the prisoners deported to other countries, the USA would save alot of money and be a much better place.

    What do you guys think about opening the jails’/prisons’ doors and telling the criminals “Move to Cuba or stay in prison forever” Does it sound familiar?
