    Who do we think posted the relatively large bond for the murderer? I highly, highly doubt he had the money. I would assume a family member did because no bondsman is going to post bond for a...

    Honestly I think this incident makes a great argument for stealth camping, or at least staying away from shelters. Shelters will always attract the less serious/less prepared/party and drugs types.

    To answer the OP's question...

    Well have at it then! Nobody is stopping you. Set something up - but don't expect some bureaucracy to bail you out for your lack of personal responsibility and/or planning.
