A woman who was recorded pushing an elderly man off a bus and accused of killing the senior citizen was freed on bond Friday.
Las Vegas residents are outraged after Cadesha Bishop, who was arraigned Friday, was released after posting a $100,000 bond.
Surveillance footage shows the 25-year-old suspect pushing 74-year old Serge Fournier out the door of a city bus after he reportedly interrupted her profanity-laced tirade by asking her to be nicer to the other passengers on the bus.

Bishop was “yelling and cursing” at passengers and attacked the elderly man when he interjected, witnesses said.
Fournier then fell to the pavement and fractured his head and hip when he fell. He later died from the injuries in the hospital.
According to the Las Vegas coroner which ruled his death a homicide, Fournier died from “complications of blunt force torso injuries.”
Bishop, who has a criminal record and previously convicted of domestic violence, was charged with murder but was released wearing a “high-level” electric monitoring device. She is slated to appear in court on May 23.
“I think the bail was set too low. I base it on the violent nature of this offense. This was an unprovoked, unnecessary attack on a senior citizen with a walker,” District Attorney Steve Wolfson told WFLA. “We are progressing aggressively with the case and there are always other stages that occur in the case. We can always ask for another judge to review somebody’s custody status.”
Trevor Taylor said he knew Fournier for ten years and wants to see Bishop behind bars.
“Watching it was horrible for me to see. He was a good friend of mine,” Taylor told the network. “Under the circumstances of such a violent act, I would prefer she would be in jail.”
BREAKING: Roger Stone is a Free Man, President Trump Commutes Sentence
The story is developing.
On July 10, 2020, commentator John Cardillo reported that conservative operative Roger Stone received a commutation of his prison sentence from President Donald Trump.

Over the past few days, President Trump has considered commuting Roger Stone’s sentence a few days prior to his report to prison.
Stone is expected to report to a federal prison in Jesup, Georgia by July 14 where he will serve out a three year and four month prison sentence for allegedly lying under oath to U.S. elected officials during the politically contrived Russian interference investigation.
Trump has had a relationship with the Republican political operative for decades.
For some time, Trump has discussed the potential of commuting Stone’s sentence.
When asked by reporters earlier on July 10 about reports of his plan to pardon Stone, Trump remarked, “I’ll be looking at it. I think Roger Stone was very unfairly treated, as were many people.”
Reuters reported that back in November 2019, a “Washington jury convicted Stone on all seven criminal counts of obstruction of a congressional investigation, five counts of making false statements to Congress and tampering with a witness.”
The same report added that “Stone was convicted for lying to the House of Representatives Intelligence Committee about his attempts to contact WikiLeaks, the website that released damaging emails about Trump’s 2016 Democratic election rival Hillary Clinton that U.S. intelligence officials have concluded were stolen by Russian hackers.”
Stone’s commutation, while not a full-blown pardon that erases his conviction, is a solid victory for the Rule of Law.
