  1. Sounds like attempted murder to me. Get some back bone OPP and charge him for what it is. And why should he be allowed bail? He was on probation and broke the law. That there alone is a breach of his probation restrictions. No bail or is he a son of a cop or politician and getting preferential treatment?
