The information in the above article is incorrect. According to other mainstream news agencies, Prasad's bail is $1,000,000.00. According to CoCo Times article, when the charges were read in court Prasad objected to the murder charge. He told the Judge, "I have a question, your honor. I never possessed a handgun." Some people just don't get it. Good riddance Mr. Prasad. I just wish taxpayers didn't have to pay for your housing/care for the rest of your life.

Hi Dave. Bail was originally set at $300,000, but may have recently been increased to $1 million. We took that line out. Thanks for letting us know.

Prasad can object away. The Federal Murder Law is clearly stated and codified in California Penal Code Section 189. Additionally The rule of felony murder, recognized in California..."that when an offender kills accidentally or without specific intent to kill in the course of an applicable felony, what might have been manslaughter is escalated to murder. Second, it makes any participant in such a felony criminally liable for any deaths that occur during or in furtherance of that felony." In the case People v. Ford, 60 Cal.2d 772 (1964), the California Supreme Court held that homicide during the commission of a felony can constitute second degree murder if the felony is "inherently dangerous to human life." At the very least, it appears Prasad and the other two suspects involved can be convicted of 2nd Degree Murder.

At least we don't have to pay for one A$$holes court and housings cost. Go get a job instead of robbing folks. I can't stand punks. We are all struggling out there. And further more who the hell robs a store at 5pm on SRV blvd. That whole area is packed full of bumper to bumper traffic. IDIOTS!!!

From personal experience with Prasad of what we had been through with him, now I can finally say our prayers got answered as patience is a virtue and GOD DEFINITELY DOES JUSTICE when the cops had ignored us despite we had a strong case against him. Finally he got hit by KARMA and now I hope he rots in jail and goes to HELL for all his evil deeds!!!
