It is being reported that Kevin Janson Neal, the suspect in the case of the horrific Rancho Tehama School shooting is the same man who was arrested earlier this year for an assault against an elderly person that resulted in likely “great bodily injury.”
From the police logs on February 2, 2017:
Kevin Janson Neal: 43, of Corning was arrested Tuesday in the 6900 block of Bobcat Lane in Rancho Tehama. He was booked into Tehama County Jail on the charges of assault with deadly weapon not firearm or force, great bodily injury likely, battery on person, crime against elder or dependent adult, discharge firearm with gross negligence and false imprisonment with violence. Bail was $160,000.
His bail was set at $160,000. Yet he was free and armed less than a year after his vile crime to terrorize his neighbors and to allegedly murder yet-unnamed innocent people – selected randomly – at an elementary school.
From the local NBC affiliate:
“At least five people, including the alleged gunman, have been killed following a shooting spree in Northern California that ended near an elementary school. Two children were wounded and have been transported to local area hospitals.”

California has the strictest gun control laws in America. The question should not be whether there should be more gun control.
The question is why was Kevin Janson Neal free to roam California?
