Police have charged reputed Hells Angels member Adam Lee Hall and two others with three murders including that of a witness who was slated to testify against him later this month in Pittsfield, MA as reported by The Associated Press.
Hall was hit in 2009 with drug, weapons and other charges, and last fall allegedly attempted to frame the now-murdered witness with a phony crime to discredit his testimony in the case.
In light of Hall's alleged plot to frame the witness it is inexplicable why a judge allowed him to remain free on bail pending the trial.
On at least two prior occassions the witness "told police he feared further reprisal from Hall, asking if a witness protection program was available" as reported by Ned Oliver for The Berkshire Eagle.
The so-called criminal justice system in Berkshire County has a lot of explaining to do over the seemingly avoidable murders of a witness and two other innocents.
