The holding of Charles Garrett without bail is the most absurd waste
of a life and of the taxpayers' money I have witnessed.

The man has apparently become a responsible, working father. Why spend
taxpayer money to jail a productive citizen? Let's spend our tax
dollars to jail violent criminals. If someone still feels that he
should be punished, have Mr. Garrett participate in community service.

Don't let him rot in a jail cell. We would be needlessly punishing not
only Mr. Garrett - but also his wife and children, and the taxpayers.
