    His bail should be high and I hope he stays in jail for a long time.. That’s horrible to beat up an older person and basically leave them for dead! Not only that but he doesn’t live far from me. I don’t want anybody that’s capable of doing something like that to be anywhere close to me or even in our community! Some people are just crazy!
