      This is what the Bail Reform Act of 2017 did.
      He is not a risk so he is free to go
      He is process with a future date to appear. I am sure he didn’t appear in court as yet.
      This time they may hold him.

    Maybe they should make "nice gardens" at this location.
    That will solve the problem, right Goucho the Clown?

    If you want it changed Goucho the Clown, get involved. Start working within the legal system….even if it is corrupt. Apparently, you have all the answers.
