Two arrests in a span of 3 months and yet he is free on bail and on the streets. He gets caught burglarizing a Rite-Aid, yet he has either $75,000 for bail, or they gave him the 10% option and he paid $7,500 (or someone he knows). Unbelievable!

Let's let a man who would take out a knife and threaten a couple over a parking space in Walmart walk the streets free while out on bail. Makes me feel safe in Brick, NOT! Let's see if he returns for his day in court after posting only $7,500. If he would take a knife out over a parking space, what else might he do if he gets upset over something a little more important, let's say someone cuts in line in front of him in McDonalds? Will he take a child hostage? Rob a bank when he can't afford his Big Mac? Why should Brick residents have to worry that these people are walking the streets of our town when they have demonstrated they are not fit to live in a civilized society?

Brick is not the safe place it used to be any longer. It is a very sad thing. These criminals (terrorists) should NOT be allowed on the streets of our town or any other town. We send our troops over to other countries to protect them from terrorists and they are allowed to live amongst us here in the U.S. How is it that a person can get a "rap" sheet as long as an arm? It only means that they are not getting punished for the first crime they committed. The leniency needs to STOP!!!! There are gangs allowed to rule the streets of this country and no one is doing anything to stop it. We should not have to be afraid. Bricktown is really going downhill fast. Remember at election time who is in office while this is happening. Unfortunately, I voted for them last time..I won't make the same mistake again..
