  1. Judges should never allow bonds for men waiting trial for violence against an ex gf. The judge who allowed the bail is just as guilty of the murder as the man who did it. What do judges think will happen? Mr. Tempertantrum will sit at home knitting socks? Of course the psycho is going to plot and execute revenge. No bail for violent men, period.
