Q: When does someone charged with murder not pose a threat to public safety?
A: When he is innocent.
It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas for Claude McCollum. Today, at a bond hearing, prosecutors supported his release, telling the court that they do not believe he poses a threat to public safety. McCollum was released to an aunt pending a re-trial that is looking more and more like it will never happen. Later in the day, more good news surfaced when a state police officer, breaking a gag rule, released the one nugget that we've all been waiting for -- suspected serial killer and rapist Matthew Macon confessed to the murder and sexual assault of Carolyn Kronenberg, the Lansing Community College Professor, whom McCollum was convicted of killing.
