Nev. lawmaker accused of grabbing for cop's weapon
#1
His bail was only set at $4,000. How can it be that low for what he's accused of? If this was an average citizen, it would be MUCH higher.

Troubled Nevada Assemblyman Steven Brooks was arrested early Sunday in Las Vegas on suspicion of physically attacking a family member, then grabbing for an officer's weapon.

The arrest came only days after the North Las Vegas Democrat embarked on a three-week leave following a string of bizarre events that began with his Jan. 19 arrest for allegedly threatening Assembly Speaker Marilyn Kirkpatrick.

Brooks, 40, was "agitated" and refused to obey officers' orders when they arrived to find him outside a home after responding to a report of a domestic dispute, according to police. Brooks is accused of fighting and grabbing for an officer's weapon as they tried to arrest him shortly after midnight.

Police spokesman Bill Cassell said the domestic dispute occurred inside the home, but he did not know the identity of the homeowner. No other details about the dispute were immediately available. Las Vegas police have a policy of not identifying the relationships of domestic dispute victims to suspects, Cassell said.

Brooks was booked into the Clark County Detention Center on misdemeanor charges of domestic battery and obstructing a public officer. His bail was set at $4,000, and he awaits an initial court appearance Monday morning.

battery and obstruction? 4k sounds reasonable. the missing charges that, for sure, would have been levied against normal people like us would, no doubt, command a six or seven figure bail.

There wouldn't have been bail if it was a "normal citizen". We would have been pushed to the ground, and been shot a few dozen times. The officer would say it was for his safety, get a few weeks paid vacation while IA looked into it, and then he would be cleared, back to do whatever it is they do these days.
This will be the best security for maintaining our liberties. A nation of well-informed men who have been taught to know and prize the rights which God has given them cannot be enslaved. It is in the religion of ignorance that tyranny begins. -Ben Franklin

Admit nothing.  Deny everything. Demand proof.
If we lie to the government, it's a crime. If the government lies to the people, it's called politics.

Bail isnt supposed to be based on bond. Its supposed to be based on bail. A bondsman doesnt have an obligation to post your bail and what happens when you post that $400 and show up to court? Hum... thats not how its supposed to be.
