I know I find myself watching Investigation Discovery Channel non-stop at my house, it also turns out sometimes the stories hit a little bit closer to home.

Nothing surprised me more than back in December when we found out Thomas Michael Dixon was asking to be released pending a new trial. He is appealing his conviction and as of now, he is out.

I don't know the guy, and I've read a lot of comments about him being a nice guy. That is fine. Ted Bundy, I hear, was a nice guy as well. But I wouldn't have wanted him out awaiting appeal either and living near me.

Dixon's terms of probation are, residing in Potter or Randall County. If Lubbock let him out, let him stay there. I bet Dr. Joseph Sonnier's family can't be happy about this. Their dad is dead and there is nothing that will bring him back.

Dixon has to wear a GPS tracker. I am not sure how I feel about this. We have all seen the Dateline stories. We know what he is accused of.

He was convicted of Capital Murder only now to have him out on $2 Million Dollar bond. I just don't get it except that money talks here in Amarillo.

Don't get me wrong. I was not on his jury. I sure would have loved to have been. I would have loved to see all of the evidence. I feel we have seen a lot and read a lot. I still don't get how he is out right now.

Do you get it? Comment below.
