    • He’s already out! They only charged him with a hit and run, I guess the bond is cheaper when they don’t charge him for vehicular homicide. The speed limit on Sherwood is 40mph. Ppl we will not rest until he is prosecuted just as the ppl who Louisiana loves to lock up. LSU has plenty of signs that say our pedestrians have the right away. Justice for Breunkia!!!!
