Set him free now, otherwise 'legal process' will become injustice because is innocent and free at the first place. What did he do wrong to jail him like that? Get those involve in capturing and locking him up go through your 'legal stepssss' and during which keep them in jail. I feel so sorry for him to see he walks around hopelessly and nervously.

I am so sick of 'legislation', see? in romania the barbarians there legalized massive stray dags and cats killing. Can we 'legalize' killing, abuse or wrong doing to right? Can we legalize 'evil' to angel?

I hope he gets his freedom. It reminds me so much of a restaurant in the finger lakes area when I was very young. Under 9 years old. The restaurent was out in the middle of no where and they had one sad looking lion in a very small cage as an attraction. I'm almost thinking it was a lion...
The restaurnat was horrible and it broke my heart to see this lion . I was actually younger than 9 and I remember feeling shocked and disgusted. I didn't go up to the cage and no one else did that I saw eating there did either. I don't know how this can be allowed and to be held in these conditions. I do remember it walked back and forth and sat down looking so sad. horrible. I hope some how Tony really is let go.
Please?? This is not right.
