    Felony, no bail.

    Did you ever think you would see the day when distributing a flyer disapproving of homosexuality--even in an offensive and cruel way--would be a felony? And that bail would be refused? I thought only capital crimes were non-bailable. But what I know? I just read the Constitution:

    I've said it before, and I'll say it again. I wish it were not so, but increasingly, it appears to be: Freedom of speech. Homosexuality widely accepted. Pick one.

    Back in 1960, homosexuals argued that they had a right to do in private what they wished, without fear of being arrested. Most people didn't agree with them, but we were a tolerant enough society that you could at least advocate for that position without fear of arrest. Now the shoe is on the other foot, and those who advocate (sometimes not very politely) that homosexuality is not a good thing do not get to enjoy that same freedom.[/quote:24xxzkhp]

    How does it deserve no bail?

    How does it deserve to be treated as a felony?

    If not them, then that one group that takes pro-religion cases. I always forget their name.

    If it were anti-heterosexual, would she be in the same trouble?

    What are you guys thinking?!

    This chick is 16, smokes pot & cigs, drinks beer, apparently cussed & scuffled with the arresting officer and has had 13 prior encounters with the police. She is clearly a text book example of a bail jumper. Hell I bet she already had plans to steal a car & be on her way out of state before the judge denied bail. Heavens knows I feel better with her locked away.

    :shakehead:


    Argumentative, obnoxious, opinionated, independant. Hmmmm I bet she grows up to be just like Ramm...

    I believe gays should have the same rights as the rest of us, but this is overkill.

    Hate crime? The girl is entitled to her opinion, even if it is hateful. Sticks and stones and so on.....

    Possibly the judge had her locked away because she is a flight risk or a potential problem of some other type. It's rather obvious she's not a model citizen, but until we know more, I guess we have to accept the judge's position. Probably...

    To arrest and charge this girl with a felony simply for stating her opinion, no matter how distasteful, is wrong. Wrong, wrong, wrong!

    They have the same rights I do. I can't marry a man and neither can they. They can marry a women and so can I. It might be symantics but they have the same rights.
