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.

    Asian? He's Cherokee. I have lived in Tulsa for a long time, as well as some of our largest cities. Tulsa is a great place, but yes, it definitely has a race problem. After all, Tulsa was home to one of the worst race riots ever.

    I want CNN and every other liberal news media to post what color the killers are and what color the victims are. That would be fair and balanced. Sick of the hypocrisy!!

      @txtwisterz: actually.. fair and balanced would mention no race at all. 2 guys killed alot of people. the only people who care about the races involved are racists..

  9. just curious

    lol, where do these judges come up with this arbitrary bail amounts? 9, 160,000.00. Why not just round it off to 10 million? Still, how do they come up with such figures?

    • leeintulsa

      @just curious: they have a list of charges and other factors that they use to add up the bond. and, obviously, rounding it off would be arbitrary...

    Case of revenge killings of father, the killer of his father couldn't be persecuted for fear of persecuting a black guy, and the police/prosecutor being called a racist.
