    'So Much Money': Baltimore Teen in Riot Photo Held on $500,000 Bail

    "The young man in the blue hoodie seen in pictures smashing police cars during violent protests in Baltimore has a name and a family. He is Allen Bullock. He voluntarily surrendered to police, only to be held on half a million dollars' bail, an amount his parents say is "ridiculous."
    Bullock, 18, is charged with eight counts, including rioting and malicious destruction of property all of them misdemeanors after he showed up with his stepfather at the Baltimore City Juvenile Justice Center."

    Didn't see a thread on this yet, but if one exists, please combine.

    Is a half a million dollars appropriate bail for this man?
    Thanks from Rorschach

    I don't know.

    While it does seem a bit steep, I am wondering if he will ever really have to "pay" for even a tenth of the damage HE, personally caused?

    Personally, if he is a minor, I would be fine with taking down his parent's information, releasing him to their care, then telling them:

    "The check for damages will be in the mail......"

    This reminds me of a story. I was a new teacher and walked out of school and someone had thrown a brick through my windshield. My students knew who did it but were petrified to tell me so I had them put the name in my mailbox. I confronted this kid who was not even in my class and did not even know me and told him he had two choices . One choice was for me to report it to the police, and the other choice was for him to pay me for the windshield. He chose the latter. Every week he would give me five dollars and we would chat and I was unaware that he had a crush on me. He got kicked out of school and actually broke in to pay me. He confessed his "love"...I was only 21 and he was 15....after we got married (kidding)
