I agree with you up to a point, Ann. Bobby is NOT an evil person,
and he is portrayed in the diary as a good, simple kid (even though
he does, according to Laura, commit manslaughter by shooting a guy).
However, planting cocaine in someone's bike goes far beyond simple
anger. We have been led to believe that Bobby blindly HATES James.
I hope that this antagonism is either brought out more or resolved,
rather than just forgotten by the writers.
