"A Georgia driver is accused of firing multiple shots at another vehicle during what authorities have reportedly called a “road rage incident” on Highway 92 in Cherokee County. Local deputies said defendant Wade McEwan, 61, of Acworth, shot at least 14 rounds, according to WSB-TV. McEwan is accused of blocking victim Jason Daxon, 25, from passing him several times. The 61-year-old then opened fire on the younger man, deputies said. “Both vehicles were stopped at the traffic light at the intersection of Highway 92 and Woodstock Road when McEwan began firing through his drivers side window the sheriff’s office explained in a press release obtained by The Telegraph of Macon, Georgia. Daxon turned and headed in the other direction, but McEwan kept firing, the authorities have alleged. The 25-year-old was shot twice but managed to pull off the road, according to the WSB report. McEwan was reportedly charged with aggravated assault, reckless conduct, and reckless driving."

So you shoot into someone's car 14 times, hit them twice and all you get charged with is assault and reckless driving?? WTF?? On top of that, an officer witnessed the shooting and he of all people should have clearly seen that what this guy did was attempted murder -- police themselves have fired into cars over 137 times for a lot less of a reason -- I don't know if this happened in one of those "good ol boy" counties but there is no way if this was the other way around; Mr. Daxon would be able to shoot at someone's car 14 times and not be charged with attempted murder; especially if he shot the occupant twice, once in the arm, one in the back....fortunately, the victim will survive his injuries -- but only charging this guy with assault seems like insult to injury....

This isn't road rage, this is just rage by an unstable person.

Attempted murder, especially if he hit his target and showed clear intent (as compared to scaring someone per se).

Yeah that. He'll probably be released on his own recognizance and have to wear an ankle monitor for a few weeks. The left wants to eliminate cash bail anyway.

It's ok to lie about what cash bail reform actually is:


Those who are not eligible for swift release or personal bonds include those arrested:


  • and charged with domestic violence, violating a protective order in a domestic violence case, or making a terroristic threat against a family or household member;
  • and charged with assault;
  • and charged with a second or subsequent driving-under-the-influence (DUI) offense

So no, no "Democrat" elected anywhere is arguing for swift pre-trial releases of people who commit violent crimes, aggravated felonies, etc....but you should be happy that those in your Trump circle jerk are getting that swift release for their felony charges...

What is right for people that have money get all the benefits, is that right?? if its right for people who have money, is it a right for those who don't??
-----------------------------------------------------
A. Cash Bail Is Unjust and Inequitable America’s system of cash bail is unfair, inequitable, and imposes severe harm on communities. Cash bail is a system under which a defendant who has been accused of a crime is required to post money in order to secure release from jail pending trial. Importantly, cash bail forces defendants to pay for their release before they have been convicted. In function, then, cash bail imposes pre-conviction punishment on criminal defendants who cannot afford to pay. Cash bail is inconsistent with several foundational principles of American criminal law.1 Debtors’ prisons—that is, prisons that housed people for inability to pay a debt—were abolished by Congress in 1833.2 Today, debtors’ prisons are illegal in all fifty states.3 The United States Supreme Court, moreover, has held that states may not constitutionally imprison indigent defendants, as punishment for a crime, simply because they cannot afford to pay.4 Yet each day, hundreds of thousands of Americans sit in jail, pre-trial, because they lack the funds to “make bail.”5 Cash bail is also at odds with the “presumption of innocence” that has long been a bedrock of American law.6 Few would argue that being forced to sit in jail is not punishment. Indeed, jail sentences are routinely handed down as punishment. 7

Care to tell me what law was passed that demanded his release??
Can you point to the "Democrat bill" that called for this??


But after Seaberry was in jail for nearly a year, prosecutors failed to meet a demand for a speedy trial. That led to Judge J.D. Watts releasing Seaberry without bail, rather than having the charges dismissed altogether.


Since when are Dems blamed for a judge making a decision based on the 6th amendment??


Why do you folks consistently lie??

A friend in law enforcement who lives in Ga said that there isn't really a statute for attempted murder in Georgia.....so maybe that is why he was charged with assault....or maybe assault is just easier to win a conviction on....

The 25-year-old was shot twice but managed to pull off the road, according to the WSB report. He remained “conscious and alert” and was taken to the hospital from there, the television station said; he is expected to survive.

Shoulda had a hole stomped in his ass by the cops.....Then charge what is left with attempted homicide, reckless endangerment, using a firearm in the commission of a felony, and anything else that fits the bill.....Glass on the road, charge him with littering.

If I was on the Grand Jury I'd bill every charge.

I think you will change your mind if the shooter claims he was afraid for his safety because the guy looked like a "thug" -- folks like you usually support murdering unarmed people if they look scary and powerful -- and make you feel all effeminate and weak .....which is how u normally feel....but.....
