Victor King is Out of Jail

Here’s more evidence that We the People are smarter and more responsible than those we elect to govern us (ABC 13, 8/18/17).
As readers will recall, this past Sunday I posted this piece about Victor Alonzo King. He’s the Raleigh, NC father of five with a wife who’s just been diagnosed with Stage Four cancer. He went to work last Tuesday, leaving his kids in the care of a neighbor. The neighbor apparently left them alone for a time, another neighbor called the police who, for reasons I can’t guess at, arrested King. King of course has done absolutely nothing wrong, assuming media reports to be accurate.
But, as if that weren’t enough, the judge in his case ordered King held on $25,000 bond, an amount he can’t possibly raise as the sole support of five children and a gravely ill wife. Keeping King in jail would of course have meant he lost his job and, unable to support his kids, would likely have lost them as well.
