    The laws need to change especially when there is a history of theft, assault and drug possession. No person should be allowed out on bond and tfederal agents should be involved if firearms were stolen .A judge that presides over traffic and family court shouldn’t be handling cases that involve violent crimes or burglary. My family came to Talbot County Sherriffs department pleading for help against a criminal with an extensive violent criminal history only to be mocked , however we never met with Sherriff Gamble and I will say two detectives contacted me after I left frustrated and in tears offering to help and apologizing for the way their supervisor treated us. My children were also threatened by this criminal and I had to turn to another county and state officials for help. We had to move , and lived in fear until the assailant was captured on 4 outstanding warrants ,one of which was in Talbot County.
