Our crime problem and all in the Allentown area here on there is no reason why anyone should feel. Are concerned about common down Allentown to win short holiday season. This was the situation. Where bomb these two individuals who knew one another. They had the clintons. And the the individuals involved in this incident. Com got into a flight. Originally in the bar. The flight spilled over spilled out into the street in front of the bar. They continued to. Engage in the altercation bomb in their in the mill street there from the bar. And and the defendant. Armed allegedly. Went to his vehicle got to guard came back and shot the victim so this was not eight. Random act of violence in at the bar this was not in it did this was not a situation where individual. Was climbing into the town area to cause trouble. Combing the bar too well.

Almost first year in office now to bomb to it or not. To not. Have people incarcerated. All while there pending charges. If it is not just. You know what whenever I ask for bail. I ran my attorneys you know in court after bail I'll. I have a thought process behind it just Willy Nilly. I'll ask for bail order keeps them all in custody. While there pending charges because again the older or not they're guilty. Air pending charges. But when I believe that someone. I'm is a flight risk. I believe that someone. On who has a history of committing criminal acts or not actually go to court. And ask for bail and and when. And when you know and I out of former George so American are American are criticizing George decision hear me. Each Georgian in this in this county in this in this city.
