    Tough, tough old man. Another reason why you should NEVER open the door for ANYONE you do not know under any circumstances.

    I'd like to see attempted murder added to the charges. Wrapping an old man up in duct tape and a blanket? They left him to die.

    They tie up a person, and come back the next day. When caught, one guy gets bail? Out! As retsupt would say "time to take out the trash".

    It's just a shame that he didn't have a gun and let them have it at the door. That's why you carry all the time, even at home.

    From article;


    Both charged, one free
    Carranza and Velasquez have been charged with aggravated robbery and unlawful restraint with serious bodily injury.

    Carranza was released from the Harris County Jail on bail of $50,000, and is scheduled to appear in court June 10. Velasquez, who has an immigration hold on his case, remains in County Jail in lieu of bail set at $70,000. He is scheduled to appear in court today.

    "This was a heinous crime," Stauber said.

    He would not discuss the details of the events leading to the two arrests, but said investigators believe the pair may have been involved in other burglarie


    ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^
    WoW,,, I'm shocked!!!!!!!!!!!


    Imagine that, immigration ISSUES.
    How about for Valasquez, we set him free 500 yards from the Mexican border, then take some of the local deer hunters and have them set-up 500 yards from Senior Valasquez and begin shooting.
    If he makes it back to the thin yellow line before he dies, maybe he was innocent.
    Knuckledraggers.

    I'm with ret on this one.
    Usually I'm more of a blindfold and a cigarrette kinda guy, but I think that is too good for these two scum.

    Angry

    Should have been No Bond for either one of these two POS. If this victim had not been as tough and resourceful as he was he would have been dead. Is there no room in Texas jails for those who definately need to be there ? An immigration issue on one of the POS...imagin that !

    Why give him as much of a chance as he'd have at 500 yards? Put em' 10 feet behind him and see how far he gets. Then make the other one clean up the mess and dig two holes. Leave the rest to your imagination.
