Oh hell's no... bail at 5,000?? The judge should raise it to 100,000 better yet leave her a$$ in jail. ole crazy thinks she's all that witch. Wow it takes one hell of a man to stand there as he did and take that from her. My hats off to you and you're not a wuss in my book. You did the right thing, now fight to keep her there so she gets what she deserves. So sorry you had to go through that from her.

She deserved it! she is such a horible mother... and treated Gary like crap. Poor Gary always tried to do everything for her to fix their relationship, and she would always act like a spoiled brat. i hope she gets her daughter taken away. and never gets her back... nor gets to see her. she doesnt deserve her!

Well first off I think she got everything she had coming to her..It takes a man to walk away and not hit a women back.. But I do think she is a unfit mother who don't deserve to have kids.. I think she is a ungrateful little girl because you sure can't call her a woman..

Amber needs help! She deserves to be arrested and lose her daughter. She needs to know its not okay to beat on Gary. I hope shestays locked up for awhile and seek some psychiatric help.
