Regarding articles in the Dec. 16 Tribune: How is it that the 32-year-old man with charges of possessing an assault weapon and large-capacity magazine and suspicion of drug trafficking has a bail of $45,000 (“Oceano man arrested on assault weapons, drug charges”), and the 17-year-old (now 18) charged with threats (per the article), but not with guns, knives and not under suspicion of drugs, has a bail of $500,000 (“San Gabriel Elementary School threat suspect to be tried as an adult”)?
Things seem out of proportion in our justice system!
