    "Her bond has been set at $150,000. If Jensen cannot make bond, she may waive extradition or it could be a long process before she returns to Mesa County." That's OK !! Because EVERYONE knows, PATIENCE is a virtue, and Great things happen to those that wait. SHE WILL get her just REWARD in the end, (be it by a Broom Stick in the Joint, all the better) :) They just HATE those that would harm a Child.
