Judge orders Tulsa murder suspects held on more than $9 million bond each

A judge in Tulsa, Oklahoma has ordered two men suspected in a string of weekend shootings that left three people dead held in lieu of $9,160,000 bond each.

Jake England, 19, and Alvin Watts, 33, are charged with three counts of murder and two counts of shooting with intent to kill in connection with last week's shootings, which also wounded two people. Authorities are working to determine whether the violence that left three people dead was racially motivated.

    With all of this violence in the world, Jesus has to be on his way....anytime now *looks at wrist watch*

    Killing, and mass murdering, and suicide terrorization, bombs. All I have are hopes and prayers for the victims, the killers, and all of their families.

    By posting the bail does the judge value the murdered people for a certain amount of money?

      A judge *sets* the bail according to the bail guidelines of the state.
      Oklahoma obviously has very high bail amounts associated with crime.

    This is just horrible. Now black people are just being picked off by obvious racist @ssholes with guns-innocent or not! These nut jobs should be put under the jail. They took the law in their own hands. It is obviously a hate crime because they went to a black area, looking to committ murder and targeted ANY black male around. The loss of his father is terrible but murdering any random innocent person is not the answer. People are going nuts!!!!

    Murder? Big deal. This is obviously a clear-cut case of racial profiling. We better hand this one off to Al Sharpton/Jessie jackson religion to decide.

      How about a racial slur "Dirty Asian" from MARION BARRY? So what Jessie Jackson and Al Sharpton are going to do? So is it O.K. for Black to be a racist?

  6. Murder defined

    Murder. The "taking of human life with malice aforethought" aka 'preemptive war'. Prevenge is what I like to call it. Seeking revenge before the case has even been tried let alone prosecuted. The call for blood when the call should be for justice.

    They say they are anti-racist. What they are is anti-White.
    Anti-racist is a code word for anti-White.

      why so narcissistic? a racist rejects love and malovently devalues life, devalues personhood, and opposes humanity so as to falsely exalt ones importance and/or superiority by oppression or possession of another. it is a mortal sin to be a racist for it opposes the liberty and freedoms of man. It also violates, offends, blasphemes and opposes the two great commands: to love the neighbor and to love God. It is demonic in origin and its fruit once fully bloomed is death and destruction of humanity and the removal of God's love from the hearts of men and from the face of the earth. racism is not limited to anti-white...racism is hatred of all men.
