    I’m sure they’ll let him out on no bond and never follow through with charges before all is said and done.

    How about we deport him. If he is here on a student visa revoke it and send him back! This will not make national news because the Deputy did not shoot him or taser him. I hope the Deputy is ok.

    He’s lucky he wasn’t shot.
    Too bad you never hear all the times law enforcement exercises patience and restraint w the community.
