      I wonder why they didn't identify him? He doesn't look like a minor.

      In any case, the DA's office is more forthcoming with names, so I've added that into the original post.

      That bail amount both requested by the DA and set by the judge is laughable considering the severity of the crime.

      If convicted.

      He's not convicted. Bail isn't punishment. This isn't Texas or NYC where the state tries to make a buck off of holding people hostage when they haven't been convicted of anything.

      We don't know the circumstances. The press release from the DA's office says something like "should he make bail ..." which indicates he did not make bail and that $500 was a high enough bar to keep him in town.
