Maybe next guy wil be coming home from the Belmont gun club

To The Daily Sun,

I've got steam coming out of my ears on this one.

Let me quote what I read in The Daily Sun on April 12. Judge Jim Carroll ruled that the Franklin man who allegedly burglarized a elderly couple's home in Belmont can be freed on reduced bail in he enters an out-patient drug treatment program.

Let me stop there before I puke. According to Channel 9 News and the papers, this punk — hold on ... I have to use the word allegedly — was robbing this elderly couple's residence. They come home, pull in their driveway blocking the not-too-bright punk's car in. In desperation the punk attacks the old-timer, steals his car and takes off down Interstate 93 with a stolen car and jewelry with a multiple-police chase that ends on I-93.

Judge, you don't have to be Arpian Saunders to figure out this punk is a threat to our community.

Maybe the next Belmont resident who comes home to find a stranger robbing them was out at the Belmont gun club instead of out shopping.
