Sarno Wants Bail Reform Now

posted by John Baibak - 

Springfield Mayor Domenic Sarno is  pointing to the fatal shooting of a police officer in Weymouth as  another example of a flawed court system. 

Sarno said the individual who  was arrested should not have been on the streets, and that the  court-bail system seems to give violent repeat offenders affordable and  favorable release conditions. 

He says it doesn't make sense and is once  again asking state lawmakers to act on and pass his proposed legislation  to allow prosecutors to appeal low bail rulings from judges.  

Emanuel  Lopes is accused of attacking and killing officer Michael Chesna and a  resident, Vera Adams, in an incident on Sunday.
