Letter: Why set low bail on drug defendants?

It’s heartening to see TRIDENT removing these purveyors of “misery by the gram” from among the decent folks in our community. But I was equally dismayed that all but one of the Mexican cartel reps was able to make bail and walk.

Who the hell set this ridiculously low bail? Does anyone actually expect even one of these foreign nationals to show up for their day in court? They’ll get a new ID and go on working for the cartel in another location.

What a waste of public resources and law enforcement’s time. TRIDENT busts the social pariahs and some liberal, progressive-minded bail setter sets them free.

I will eat my Border Patrol hat and burn all my “Deport All Illegals” T-shirts if even one of the Mexican miscreants out on bail shows up for their day in court.

What counterproductive idiocy.
