Personal trainer Perry Mosdromos released on bail

Original post made on Jun 12, 2012

He didn't have a "get out of jail free" card, but Perry Mosdromos is out of custody anyway. The 46-year-old personal trainer arrested in a $250,000 drug bust last week was released after posting $25,000 bail. ==B Related story:==

It's sad a criminal like this is allowed to be free. Hopefully he has been evicted and lost his "personal training" business. Justice needs to be served.

Where to start? Palo Alto Resident, this is a person charged with a crime, not a convicted one. In our society, accused people are considered innocent until proven guilty. Accused people do have the right to post bail, subject to legal supervision. They have the right to a trial by jury. They are protected, somewhat, against unreasonable search and seizure.

The sad thing is your distorted view of justice in the United States of America.

Palo Alto Resident,

I'm sorry I missed your response. I hope the removal of your comments were based on some sort of reasonable standard, which, unfortunately, I have not always found to be the case. I hope you will respond again.

Whatever happened to innocent until found guilty? I have a problem with people being "outed" for a crime and having their name given until we know the facts. If this guy is in fact guilty then yes, he should be prosecuted for sure, but we don't know what the truth is. And, he may be guilty, but he also may not be. I don't like trying people in the press before we know the facts.

Palo Alto Resident--I did have a good night. Thanks for your good wishes. No, this gent is not a "buddy," nor is he anyone I know. Even if he is a "loser" as you say--and his position right now does not look good--he still has a right to walk the streets unless he's much more of a danger to society than the justice system thinks he is. After all, the authorities have seized the drugs he's alleged to have accumulated.

saleha--I agree that trying people in the press is a bad idea. Here's a case where freedom of the press conflicts with an individual's rights. Prosecutors and police get to lay out their whole case, and the alleged criminal has very little power to publicly defend himself or herself against the allegations.

I posted under the name "Serving" Justice. Although I disagree with Palo Alto Resident, I can't believe his or her most recent comment was deleted! There was nothing in that comment that deserved censorship. Really, Palo Alto Weekly staff, can you justify these apparently random judgments? Please point out what in the world in the posts you cut was so offensive as to be unpublishable!

And the fact that the police found evidence of him having over 4,000 illegal drugs delivered so that he can sell them doesn't mean he's guilty?

All you people need to re-read the facts in this case before you go posting your confrontational opinions. What's your investment in defending a total stranger anyway? Sounds fishy.
