    Two black females from Al were arrested for attempted armed robbery and aggravated assault and put a $200,000 bond and three white guys armed robbery a man at gun point and ran they only got a $15,000 bond and bond with $1500 so you all tell what is wrong with this picture the girls are black and the guys are white, but these girls were just in the car with the two criminals that committed the crime and they should have been charged with accessory before and after the fact of the crime they did not have a gun, but they are black so there are different laws for black people. What is going to happen the NAACP has gotten the message and they are wanting to know why this bond is so high and are these charges against girls are like this they have told what went on and they are still holding them, they do not care as long as they have someone to put the crime on because the people that suppose to had been robbed were white. Those people that were supposed to had been robbed knew what was going on and what actually took place and everyone else does to.
