Just who is the idiot judge who set this jerks bail?

Possession of cocaine, armed robbery and aggravated assault and a $5000 bail.

You have to be kidding!!! He should be held with no bail.

And you wonder why we have so much crime.

I thought this was strange so I looked this guy up on the Cobb sheriff's department website. He got a $5,000 bond for the possession charge. The armed robbery and aggravated assault were separate charges and have no bond. He is still in jail.
