Of course they held him without bale. If they gave him bale he'd burn down the police station.

Put a pitchfork in him. He's done.

Pretty short sighted really.

Now when this idiot tries to make an argument where will he find the straw he needs for all those stawmen?

Bale may also have some questions about 80s pop music.
And that could get messy

I dunno, I'd be okay with him being released on bale, so long as it was on fire. Otherwise he needs to be corralled.

So just to be clear, hay bales with both Biden and Trump posters on them have been set afire?
So many questions.

Another moron radicalized by Rump's BS. Looks like a winner, too with previous accounts of strangulation.

Lonnie Durfee, suspect in Dalton sign fire, denied bail; judge cites arson's role in political intimidation

Highlights.....
- Smyth noted the role intoxication appeared to play in Durfee's present and past offenses.
- Durfee, Dohoney told the court, twice admitted to police that he set the fire.



The judge said Durfee's record of criminal convictions, multiple restraining orders, and history of violence with police and civilians also bore weight in his decision to deny his release before trial. He ordered Durfee held for up to 120 days, though his defense lawyer said it could be longer due to coronavirus court delays.
In a statement, Berkshire District Attorney Andrea Harrington said Durfee's record shows "a pattern of domestic violence, including strangulation, a strong indicator of potential lethality."
"Mr. Durfee's recent arson allegations are particularly concerning in light of his violent history because he is escalating his hostility against the public at large," Harrington said. "Our number one job is to protect the public. This ruling keeps a dangerous person from potentially causing additional harm to members of our community."

Too bad he can't get out jail. Trump would love to have him as a guest at one of his MAGA Rallies.

this part is some lawyerly horseshiat

FTA:

"Sullivan said Durfee is forthright about his recent use of alcohol to self-medicate and had sought advice from friends about how to manage the grief of losing his son.
The Biden-Harris hay bale endorsement represented to Durfee "the toxicity that we have right now on the national political stage, and it made him angry," Sullivan said.

Okay. Okay. He's trash. We get it. But honestly, setting a fire in an open field doesn't seem like held without bail territory.

Nice of the dumbass to provide prosecution with strong evidence against him:

Dohoney pointed to a dinner party at which a witness said Durfee made a scene despite the fact that political discussions had been declared off limits by the host. He cited another incident less than two weeks ago in which, police say, a witness linked Durfee to the burning of a Joe Biden sign on Home Terrace in Dalton, after which he stuck an American flag in the ashes.
Durfee, Dohoney told the court, twice admitted to police that he set the fire. After Durfee gave police permission to search his cellphone, investigators discovered a picture of the hay bales before the fire and pictures of other damaged Biden campaign signs.


To paraphrase Buddy Rich, "This guy is not my kind of guy!"

That's a pretty nice and well done bale sign. Contrast it with the binkie one in Nunes district that got burned. As usual no real effort was put into it. Or this is all the creativity they have.

And his next appearance is not until after Election Day. Which is delicious. If he somehow does manage to get out of jail at some point he's going to feel like he stepped into the Twilight Zone.

And when he's convicted he'll do maybe 9 months in Pittsfield. Do we think he's going to flee? Burn up another Biden-Harris hay bale? Please.

There's been a huge problem in my area of WI with Biden/Harris yard signs - I've had two stolen myself. I had trouble registering that someone had felt they had the right to come onto my property and take things that weren't theirs, and that they dared silence peaceful political speech in my country.

Yesterday, out in the sticks where I live, I saw a pair of Trump signs about 5' off the side of a county highway, nearly on the shoulder. I could have easily run them over without slowing down, and no one would have known who did it. But I didn't, because I'm not a cowardly punk.

So life in prison then? Because the time he does now will be taken off his sentence. Unless he's innocent, in which case he won't even get an apology.

The bail system needs to go, for everyone, including assholes.

The Berkshire District Attorney's Office said they successfully argued that the latest actions of 49-year-old Lonnie Durfee made him a risk to the public

Arson usually is.

Looks like they are actually charging him with arson.

But only because he did this in a Blue state.  I would really like to see a Trumpanzee held accountable in a Red state.

Holy false dichotomies! Nobody said anything about life in prison. It's probably best to keep him in the clink until after the election, though; kind of like Otis getting put up in the Mayberry jail so he can sleep it off.

He's been displaying a pattern of escalating deranged and violent behavior. It must be getting pretty bad if they decided to no-bail him.

"Not be able to vote" might be what they were going for.  And maybe not watch the election*.

/*or forced to watch the election, unable to reach a remote to change the channel as (hopefully) Trump's chances go up in flames like a hay bale in a field...

Hunty,no one is calling for that.  He is a violent repeat offender. If he is found guilty then he should serve his sentence.  Again no one is calling for a life sentence,the fact that you imagine that is a you problem.

If he has an "established pattern of behavior" he's not going to be rehabilitated by cooling his heels in Pittsfield while awaiting trial. If he's convicted, they're going to deduct time served from his sentence. If he's not convicted, he won't get jack shiat. Not even cab fare.

Refusing bail, in almost all cases, is punishment prior to conviction. And it's wrong.
