American Justice

A soldier rescued two women being beat up–the abuser went free, the soldier was arrested. When the soldier asked the judge to release him on his own recognizance to speak to his commander, the judge raised his bond from $20K to $50K.

Should he have just called the police, waiting for them twiddling his thumbs while watching the women get pushed and choked?

Update: Charges were dropped against Matthew Nicholson on September 21.
