They turned themselves in on a class A misdemeanor. Bond is about right. Class A misdemeanor means that although they are facing a year in jail, realistically they are not facing much in the way of consequences, maybe a suspended sentence and some community service.
I've been shot a number of times with a paintball gun. It hurts and can leave a bruise. Maybe punishment should be getting shot 10 times with a paintball gun see how they like it. We'd have to test our guns prior to being used because some people would hop there's up. Those would really hurt.
