As Florida Today’s John Torres and I discussed the St. Louis cop killer having a Brevard connection and extensive criminal history here, we wondered how a judge could release a convicted felon in possession of a multiple firearms.Public Defender Blaise Trettis called the show to explain.It seems the judge had no choice. Trettis explained that the State Attorney’s Office had not filed charges in the required 40 days and the recognizance bond was then required.There is more to the story.John followed up and we’ll explore that later in the show.
We’ll start our day with HAIR GATE, the flap over Nancy Pelosi’s illegal hairdo and the furor on both sides over it.
IN A HANDBASKET we’ll ask what good erasing our nation’s history will do.
Could Glenn Beck have been right?Are talk radio’s days coming to an end?I don’t believe so, but it is increasingly evident that certain speech is preferred and enforced these days.The same applies to symbolism.
Mr. President, could you please refrain from speaking out on voting?And especially so when you encourage illegal behavior?Thanks.
Bad guys who decide to take the “Attack the Cop” challenge should consider what one Ohio Sheriff has to say.He sounds remarkably like Wayne Ivey.
