Clearly bail is being set too low, especially in the case of the 34 year old male facing multiple firearms violations.

I assume these 4 suspects listed above are a small portion of a much larger gang known as INBSLOCTY Gang ” Insane No Brain San Luis Obisbo County Gang “

So perps stole a handgun in SLO. Did they bust the trigger lock or break the gun safe? If not is the SLOPD going to return the gun to the owner with a citation for having an unsecured gun in violation of state law and common sense. Btw did they ever cite the lawyer who left his gun in his gym bag to be stolen by the mental patient and used to kill one man and injure 5 LEO?

I think we need to see mug shots of this motley crew. Any guesses on the number of visible tattoos between the lot of them?
