As news trickles in on what’s going on in Baltimore, the stories keep getting more and more unbelievable.
One man is being held on $100,000 bail after stealing ONE pair of sneakers during the riots earlier this week.
Antonio Jackson, a warehouse worker and father of one, was nabbed carrying an unnamed pair of sneakers that still had their price tag attached. Although Jackson was not caught at the scene of the actual looting, the state’s attorney showed no mercy, setting his bail at $50,000. Somehow, the judge didn’t think that was quite enough, and pointed to an incident when Jackson failed to appear to court as enough reason to increase the bail to $100,000. Over a single pair of shoes, according to The Guardian.
While we believe stealing is not the answer, $100,000 bail seems a little excessive. What do you think?
