Arlington school shooter is RELEASED on $75k bond: Gunman, 18, walks free one day after shooting 15-year-old 'bully seven times' - AND teacher during class brawl
Daily Mail ^

The teenage gunman who opened fire in an Arlington, Texas, school on Wednesday has been released on bond, a day after pulling a gun from his backpack and shooting a 'bully', a teacher and one other girl.

Timothy George Simpkins was being held on a $75,000 bond on three charges of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon but the 18-year-old walked out of Tarrant County Jail on Thursday afternoon.

Simpkins said nothing as he strode out of the jail in a blue t-shirt, matching baseball cap worn backwards, and jeans.

It's unclear why he has been charged with aggravated assault and not attempted murder or more serious charges, or why the judge granted him bail.

A video of their fight was posted on social media by Simpkins' cousin on Wednesday night in an effort to prove that he was being bullied.

It shows Simpkins - who was identified by police as wearing a light colored hoodie in the footage - being pummeled by the other boy, who is three years his junior, while holding his hands around his head.

Once the fight was over, he went to his orange backpack, pulled out of his gun and started shooting.

He shot the other boy 'seven to eight times', according to one student who was interviewed by police, and also shot 25-year-old Calvin Pettitt, a teacher who had tried to break up the fight. Pettitt was shot in the back.

Both he and the 15-year-old boy remain in the hospital. Pettitt is expected to survive and is in a good condition but the 15-year-old boy is in critical condition.

A third victim - a teenage girl - suffered a graze wound but is no longer in the hospital.

I also wonder if the Tarrant Co. Atty. is Soros funded. Sounds improbable but not impossible there.

Might be a little street justice heading to this young man. He might have been better off in jail for awhile.

disrespecting is different than bullying.

if i say, your rep doesn’t meet the expectations of your grill.

that is not bullying. that is disrespecting.

i wonder what the bully said.

In Texas, no less.

Stand Your Ground will not apply in this circumstance.

The judge is the ultimate decision maker on granting his release no matter who got the DA elected.

Context is missing in video, but once beat-down is over, it is not stand your ground to retrieve a gun and start shooting at people who had nothing to do with the fight.

There would be no bail the day after the incident. One might get one, eventually, but they’d stew in the county jail for a while. Then they’d get the $1,000,000 cash bail.

He had a fricking gun in school for one, he shot the teacher in the back for two, he's an adult for three. This is unbelievable and outrageous! But you wont see it in the msm.
