OFFICER INDICTED ON VOLUNTARY MANSLAUGHTER CHARGES , BUT RELEASED FROM CUSTODY WITH 48 HRS TO RETURN
The NCSBI investigation is complete. Bryon Vassey was officially charged with Voluntary Manslaughter today by The Brunswick County Grand Jury, for the shooting death of Keith Vidal on January 5, 2014. Once it was established that he would be charged a bail hearing happened. What happened in that hearing should be grounds for even more charges. The District Attorney asked for a 100,000 dollar bond and the judge made the decision to decrease that number to 50,000 dollars. And then allowed the accused killer to walk out of the court house with only the promise he would turn himself in in 48 hrs.
My first article was written from a biased stance on the whole situation. Rightfully so some people came out of left field with their opinions of my opinion. Now we can leave all of the speculation out. This man walked into a home and killed a man. A grand jury has seen fit to pursue charges. So with that said, now is theres even bigger question that still remains unanswered.
Is it right to allow an accused killer 48 hrs. before he has to RETURN to jail.
Let me break this down another way.
In another incident in the state of NC this week an officer was also indicted on the same charges and had the same bond.
But in these everyday cases where officers weren’t involved this was the way things went down,
Sheree Amanda Moreno was being assaulted by a man and stabbed him in the leg resulting in his death.. She was charged with voluntary manslaughter remanded to custody and has to post a 500,000 dollar bond.
Michael Lee Phillips, the St. John man accused of murdering his son near Frankford last August, same charge but a 200,000 dollar bond
Are we starting to see a pattern here?
In all cases where a civilian was the defendant they were remanded instantly, and issued a very high bond. One would believe that if you issued a high enough bond the killer couldn’t afford to get out. Well in the case of Bryon Vassey they didn’t make him pay right away, they let him go with the instructions to return by Wednesday at noon with his bail money. What? You say it can’t be possible? Well let me assure you it is entirely possible and today in Brunswick County North Carolina, they allowed an accused killer to go home, with the promise he would return. I would also like to add that, the home he was allowed to go to was 1.3 miles from the place he killed my friend..
If you or I, average everyday Americans were to receive a formal indictment from a grand jury on the charge of voluntary manslaughter. We would be ushered through the inmate door and our family’s would see us on visiting day.. We all have to live by the laws of our country.. So why can someone be placed above them.
I ask that you share Keith’s story, and if you are as outraged as I am about this man being able to go home please write our governor and let him know..
CONTACT YOUR GOVERNOR AND TELL HIM WE WILL NOT STAND FOR A KILLER TO BE FREE.... SHARE THIS LINK... IT ONLY TAKES A MIN TO SEND HIM AN EMAIL... DO NOT LET THIS MAN SIT AT HOME FOR 48 HRS WHILE MY FRIEND IS IN A BOX...
Oh and the last question I want to ask is, since Vassey was on Paid Admin Leave does this mean he has to give all the money back? Or did we pay him to sit at home after he murdered someone..
Come on America, If you don’t stand up for what’s right, then who will.
Write your governor and tell them we will not tolerate this kind of injustice.
