Gang members begs to return to jail

Nassau,BAHAMAS- A gang member is back in prison after being a judge to send him there for his safety.

Anthon Munroe, reportedly a member of the Grove Hot Niggas, made the request days after rivals shot up his home.

After the attempt on his life, Munroe made an emergency application to have his bail revoked, using an argument often used by prosecutors when they object to bail.

Munroe had been on bail for over a year while awaiting trial for the murder of Shermalle Ferguson Jr at First Street, Coconut Grove on September 15, 2020.

Ferguson was sitting in a car when a gunman, whom prosecutors say is Munroe, approached on a motorcycle and shot him multiple times.

Authorities have said that the high number of retaliatory killings makes being released on bail a death sentence.

But the judicial system has been unable to keep pace with the crime rate, causing people to be freed on bail because they can’t be tried within a reasonable time.
