    Marie didn't get shafted. She shafted herself by being stupid hanging around a felon. No one forced her to put up bail for him.

    This lady was smart enough to split with her loser.

    Yep.

    For a lead role in a cage?

      I know its just the luck of the draw. However, it pisses me off when criminals win the lottery over law abiding citizens.

      Criminals and stupid people.  Oh dear Lord at the stupid people. Crying

        Of course she got shafted. Yes, she's making really dumb and questionable decisions which I don't see ending well until she leaves him and cuts ties with the people who will continue to drag her down, but that doesn't mean she isn't getting shafted. There are actual murderers, wealthy murderers, whose bail is much less than his. The guy then violates the terms of his release, and instead of being held without bail, as would be the norm, bail is set at a ridiculous sum.

        You think they did that out of the goodness of their hearts? If you think the judge and prosecutors involved don't know the emotional pressure she's under to pony up his bail, you're kidding yourself. They know she feels obligated to get him out, which is why they set that second bail amount instead of simply keeping him behind bars until his trial, which is what they would have done had she not won that money. Do you really believe they think it's in the best interest of society to release a repeat offender who's still dealing heroin and who's been caught with illegal firearms?

        I might wake up early and go running.  I might also wake up and win the lottery.

        The odds are about the same.

          Regardless, she is shafting herself by putting up bail. No one, no one, is making her do it. I sure can't feel sorry for her. Just because she has the money doesn't she should spend it, or has to spend it....on a convicted felon of all people.
