    walkie-talkie Can you hear me now?

    Good question!
    No suspect in custody. No persons of interest... so what's going to happen now?

    He's under house arrest it sounds like. It's interesting that the shootings stopped after he was arrested.

    It appears there are major problems with these cases, I say these because I don't think he was the only guy. However, the shootings did stop upon his arrest. Did the other people stop then too?

    :dunno:

    Since his arrest the shootings for the most part have stopped. I also believe there were copycat shooters at the time.

    My guess is lawsuit to follow.

    I think that goes without saying. I'd be on the phone with a lawyer if it happened to me.

    I'm still on the fence regarding his guilt or innocence. The shootings stopped after he was arrested but that doesn't make him guilty either.
    There were also some copycats during that time as well.

    I agree, but there must be some really messed up procedures by police and the prosecutor for this to happen.

    What is the difference between with and without prejudice?

    Dismissed with prejudice means the charges or action CANNOT be filed again against the defendent.

    Without prejudice means the charges can be filed again. I think it usually is filed this way when evidence is they did something but not enough to prove it in a court of law. This allows them further investigation time.
