    So the reason why it's always Muslim, terrorist; black, thug; white, mentally ill is because that's usually true?

    Like I said:

    Attorney Explains Why Accused Waffle House Killer Is Allowed Bond

    According to Nashville attorney David Raybin, under Tennessee law, every criminal suspect, except those in death penalty cases, are entitled to a bond. ...
    Raybin made it clear there is no way Reinking will get out on bond. In the unlikely event the suspect makes bond, then several things could and would happen. The district attorney could immediately request a hearing to increase the bond to $3 or $4 million.

    It's bail, not bond. Bond is one option to make bail. /pet peeve

    Great parenting by the father. Him and Adam Lanza’s mother must have attended the same school of thought.

    Judge revoked bond today after the public reminded him that the treatment of this white killer of black people was a perversion of justice.
    Key passage:

    Reinking's original bond drew harsh criticism from advocates, celebrities and community members. Some drew a comparison to Emanuel K. Samson, the suspect in a September shooting at an Antioch church, who was immediately held without bond after he was arrested.

    Waffle House shooting suspect Travis Reinking's $2 million bond revoked

    Lets dispense with the notion that granting of bond is automatic.

    You have no idea what the law is and why one judge handled it differently than another. You haven't the foggiest. You haven't seen an order. You haven't reviewed the statutes or cases. You weren't in either courtroom. You have no clue.

    40-11-102. Bailable offenses.

    Before trial, all defendants shall be bailable by sufficient sureties, except for capital offenses where the proof is evident or the presumption great. After conviction, defendants are bailable as provided by, § 40-11-113, § 40-11-143 or both.

    My best guess is that the judge said, "Fuck this, I'm not being in the middle of a shitstorm here. Let someone else sort this out."
