Wrong Place, Wrong Time

Have you ever been in the wrong place at the wrong time? Unfortunately, this happens to even the kindest, most genuine people out there. These people mean no harm. They do not have enemies. They do good deeds. One day, they just happen to be in the wrong place at the wrong time and somehow, they end up in the middle of a messy tangle and their life is thrown for a loop.

For example, say a man named John is walking from the store to his car. He notices that ahead of him, a woman had placed her purse in the passenger seat of her car and is now filling the trunk with the items she purchased. She does not notice another man grabbing her purse out of her car. John, being a Good Samaritan, tries to grab the purse back from the unnamed man to return it to the woman. In the ensuing tug-of-war, the unnamed man throws a few punches at John and John naturally fights back in self-defense. The security guards run in to break up the fight and detain both men until the police arrive and eventually arrest both men.

In trying to be a Good Samaritan, John got caught in the middle of a random incident. He did not start the altercation, he merely tried to do what he felt was right. Had John left the store 2 minutes later than he did, he would not have witnessed the purse snatch and thus would not have been injured and arrested.

Now, John has to recover from his injuries and deal with the arrest and the aftermath, including possibly facing charges. In this case, he would need to consult a bail bond company such as Mountain View Bail Bond Store to help settle his bail arrangement with an affordable bail bond. What was just one routine trip to the local store is now something very different and serious: All because John happened to be in the wrong place at the wrong time.

You see, not everyone who is arrested is a feared, dangerous criminal. Many arrestees are actually in jail because of a non-violent incident or crime. However, the stigma surrounding arrests, jails, and prisons are that the arrestees or prisoners are dangerous. Some though, were simply in the wrong place at the wrong time and now must work through tougher consequences, like John.

If you ever need a bail bond for yourself or a loved one, please come to Mountain View Bail Bond Store and we will help out. Each family is going through a different situation, and no matter what it is, you can rely on us to get the job done.

Mountain View Bail Bond Store can be reached online or at 760-964-8377.
