On this edition of Deal of the Day, Cam Edwards shares a story from Rockville, Maryland where Judge Barry Hamilton set an unsecured bail for Philip Gilberti who ended up back on the street and later shot and killed his wife and himself. The court system is now blaming the fact that the computers were down in the courtroom, causing the judge to miss Giberti's long and violent criminal history. Originally aired 3/14/2012.
