This was a really interesting piece. I think you did a pretty good job of letting all sides air their opinions without a clear bias. It was a little vague whether Amber-Rose knew about the robbery before the fact. However I do believe that non-violent first offense crimes committed by stupid teens shouldn't have to completely ruin their lives. I don't see a clear winner in this bail argument. I understand why there is a bail system to limit the risk of people just running but I think there should be a better way. It seems vastly skewed for those in a lower income bracket. It would make it that those in a lower class would have a higher likelihood of being falsely convicted just because they couldn't pay bail to look like a citizen rather than a criminal.

Bail should be done away with....There are other reforms that should be enacted, but that doesn't mean we should wait to fix something that is broken because the fix isn't perfect. I also like the idea of better communication from the court so far as the court date and notifications. On the other hand, the argument that people will be treated based on race under the bailless system because they are from "areas that are over policed" seems like someone is looking for excuses.

ABOLISH THE ARCHAIC CASH BAIL SYSTEM. I deplore the idea that folks are locked up SIMPLY because they're poor. There are so many stories about people who have not been convicted of a crime. But because they can't afford a simple $500 or $1000 bail, they're doing hard time for it. Most of these are for petty offenses like loitering or weed possession. Living at or just above poverty is hard enough as it is. At the end of the day, bail bondsmen are getting rich because citizens NEED to be free to return to their jobs.

Unfortunate truths aren't something people need to be shielding themselves from simply because accepting it hurts. There should be a system in place to make bail free if a crime hasn't been proven and there's no criminal record. But if you very obviously committed a crime you shouldn't get leniency.*

So I have some SERIOUS problems with your journalist's reasoning in this. My first issue, and probably the biggest, is that he chose an example of someone who got a much better shake out of the system than she deserved. She's not some innocent who got caught up in a bad system. She's a criminal who got off with a slap on the wrist for assisting in a robbery. Her being the getaway driver doesn't make her less culpable for the crime. On that note, the journalist says she did what any teen with the freedom of a new car would do, then went on to describe her assisting her friend with a robbery. In case you were unaware, most teens don't drive getaway cars for their friends, no matter what part of town they grew up in. That''s not normal, nor is it an honest mistake. I'm sure there are plenty of better examples of people who actually had to deal with this system while being innocent of the crime they committed. This lady unapologetically admitted that she drove the getaway car for the robbery. The next problem is that the girl was complaining that because she's black, she'd be worse off by the new system in spite of the fact that the new system doesn't take race into account. It was pretty clear that if she wasn't set free, it would have been because she committed a robbery(And yes, being the getaway driver means you actually committed the crime, because you were an integral part of the crime as a whole). She gripes about how the new system is racist, but that requires some serious mental gymnastics. It's racist because black people commit more violent crime and are therefor more likely to not get bond? But that doesn't matter because she thinks the old system is bad as well. Apparently she thinks we need to just let criminals loose until their trial date? As for bail bondsmen, I fail to see how they're supposed to be bad. They are a win win for the system. You can pay a fraction of your bond and get out of jail. If you go to court like you're supposed to, you won't have to worry about Bounty Hunters. As for the problem with not having a home, so you can't get mail for your court date, but are you really trying to tell me you can't afford a PO Box? If you can come up with $1000 to post bail, you can come up with the $20 you need for a PO Box. Can you tell this frustrated me? It frustrated me... A lot. A bunch of whining and complaining that the world isn't perfect, then complaining that the solution to the problem is racist because after all, how could you expect black people not to commit crimes? So yeah. You set out to inform me, but you only pissed me off with this nonsense!

That says we should take people with a domestic violence charge and give them room and board while they wait for court. To hell with that. Lock them up.

all that matters in this system is money. no one care's who you are, what you do, who depends on you, nothing. my experience so far has been a resounding sense of greed and nothing more. i had the money to post bail, pay my lawyer, pay my probation fees - i had the fortune to have a steady job, reliable transportation, and a support system from family and friends. without any of that, especially the money, my life would be completely different. I'd be in jail right now, waiting for my release in January 2020, which would've started January 2017. the bail system is predatory and feeds on the misfortune of the disenfranchised, while favoring those who are well off. bail bonds are a necessary evil that people have, do, and will rely on to get out of jail. do away with this corrupt system, there will no longer be a need for them. fuck those 8000 jobs, what about the hundreds of thousands locked up who can't post bail so they lose their jobs, homes, family, everything? i don't know the right resolution for this issue. but i'm happy the conversation is being had. fuck bail. and fuck this corrupt criminal justice system we have. it's a monster.

A Bail Bondsman talking about protecting constitutional rights is pretty obscene.. the US Constitution, if I recall correctly, has some lines in the 8th Amendment about treating every human being equally when facing justice. It says they have right to bail as does my country's equivalent, but in my country they tend to base it on severity and income, so rich people pay an amount that reflects as a heavy a price tag as it would be to poor person. Even if the amounts are not the same.. they feel the same pressure at the idea of losing it.

While it is true that an algorithm can't be flawless and may present new problems, it would be a drastic improvement over the current bail system. Also, an incorrect algorithm can be adjusted far easier than widespread human bias. Based on the description, it sounds like it would primarily be utilized to filter out people who are blatantly low risk, and then places most of the med-high risk individuals separately to be further assessed. It would not be the sole determinant of a person's risk. It is important not to lose sight of the goal of removing the current horrible system. It's far better to try a new system and adjust it based on its issues rather than keeping the current one in place.

Who decides what is "excessive?" Let's put it like this: Would you oppose an extremely high bail or no bail at all for someone like the Christchurch shooter? Technically, under our system, he's innocent until after he's been through trial. We know he did this horrible crime. We know why he did it. Why would we not hold him and make the barrier for getting away as high as possible? In this case, the chick got out of jail after willingly committing a crime for $1000. If anything, she got off way to easily. She was guilty of the crime she was charged with (Though she seemed to think that being the getaway driver wasn't the same as being a part of the robbery), other than a few days in jail and the bond money, her life was barely impacted by the system. Can you really say that this was excessive?

Would it be worth looking at doing a percentage of your worth to set the bail as opposed to starting from 50k (the median for bail as said in the video)? If you get set 30% of your worth at the time (for example), would that not give you the incentive and pressure to make sure you get it back without putting anyone else out, making it important for you to get it back, whilst also not cluttering a jail cell?

These are all legitimate questions I don’t know the answer to but need to know: 1. Does the algorithm accurately predict whether or not the defendant will return? 2.

It seems to me that alot of the issues with the algorithms is the inherent racism within American society. Each case needs to be assessed on its own merit. Outside of algorithms and utilising personal statements by people who know the person. People are less likely to flee if they have jobs, a good relationship with school and other references. If you have never been in trouble before and the crime is a misdemeanour then you should get a no fee bail. Everyone will still get bail, just not one that is paid for and therefore unfair to poorer demographics, creating unnecessary debt and hardship to families of the accused who very likely are unaware of the criminal activity of their relative/friend. Also updating court date information, using text messages, is definately a good idea. My GP texts me before my appointment. As does any specialist treatment provider I may need. So why can't the American criminal justice system. People were upset when slavery ended because it would cause pressure on an already teetering employment system. People didn't like it when primary school was made mandatory and children were banned from working. That didn't mean either of those practices were right.

It is astounding to me as a Canadian to learn how Americans transfer institutions, that should be under the control of the federal state, to corporations. Institutions such as prisons, education (school charters), hospitals, etc. Corporations in a capitalist system are only there to make money. So why is it ok to put human life into their hands. This system of bail bonds is basically unjust for individuals who cannot afford bail. When you are rich in the States, you can pretty much buy your way in anything you want. You need an operation, pay up! You want the best education, pay up. You want to circumvent the judicial system, pay up! For example, Jeffrey Epstein, who basically rape underage girls and built a prostitution ring for rich men literally spend 13 months housed in a private wing of the Palm Beach County. But, what do you do when you have no money to your name. Around half a million American are sitting behind bars (How Bail Traps the Poor in Jail by Bob Zadek). Not because they are guilty, but because they do not have the money to pay!!! I'm not here to look down on Americans (Canada is not the best country in the world like Chretien said). But when you look at the case of Kalief Browder, it makes you wonder if there are two worlds in this country, one for the rich and one for the poor!!!

I'm not saying the bail system is fair or should be a thing however this instance of a robbery charge... ugh. There are far better instances we could have used to prove the point. Robbery is a crime of violence. The fact this this young lady was scared or a straight A student is irrelevant. Im tired of shows, podcasts and news articles using irrelevant facts to steer folks who arent completely in the know about how the justice system works away from facts that actually matter in a case. Also in most cases an attorney is allowed to present their client in normal clothes and not an orange jump suit. On top of that, bail is usually only instituted in cases where someone is a flight risk and the court wants some skin in the game for them to return to court. In fact, most courts use whats called an Own Recognizance Bond where you are simply signing a paper claiming you'll show up to court and if you dont you understand that you'll get a warrant and be arrested and likely not be allowed to get out with bail at that point because you violated your own recognizance. The algorithm system is extremely flawed as well. Ugh who knows what solutions we could come up with if everyone just sat at a table and discussed...

Great is the enemy of good, I can understand the concerns of CURB and there is undoubtedly more that can be done but I think it would be far better to start in the right direction now. Getting rid of cash bond altogether is a huge step to take and while it shouldn't be the final system, no action perpetuates much larger problems.

Seems like, yes, the money bail system needs to go, but maybe the groups on both sides of this issue need to get together to come up with something different, maybe some hybrid of the two systems, that includes a bail option and the notification reforms instituted in New York? Concerns over just using an algorithm seem justified, but just keeping the current system does nothing to protect everyone's right to presumed innocence. Equally concerning is that under the algorithm some would be completely denied release until a court date--esp. when it's pretty obvious that our court system is currently failing to protect the rights of everyone. (Disclaimer: I am not including the concerns of bail industry in my statement, it is hard to see how they would be a good-faith actor in this debate. Although maybe with a bail option, they could have some input on implementation.)

Absolutely agree with the points starting at 10:30. The problem with bail is solely relying on police systems, which are very flawed, cuz paperwork is done by regular people. I got pulled over in a state that wasnt mine. I had to show up to court in that county, but I was able to supply an attorney on my behalf so I didnt have to travel back to the state. Everything was cleared up and finalized, yet a few months later I had found out my license had been suspended and there was a warrant for my arrest. I called the courthouse to correct these issues and they simply reverted the changes. Really? You were going to suspend my license and possibly arrest me because of human error? One that only reflects MY life? Of course, my story isn't based on bail since I didn't have to post any and just show up to court, but the point being if something so simple can be fucked on that end, what are the endless possibilities for innocent people to get fucked over? Yea, fuck the jail system in the U.S.. As long as something is for profit, it never will work for the people and only benefit the few.

If you have a million dollars lying around to just post bail, there's probably a larger crime that's been committed

Anything that allows someone to buy their freedom is fundamentally unfair. Take out the discrimination in the algorithmic system: using race, age, zip codes, income etc and you'll have a fair and equal system. But if someone has a history of violence they should not be able to buy their way back out onto the streets. It makes a mockery of the concept of imprisonment. People accused of crimes should be protected by employment rights too. Their employer should not be able to fire them unless they are found guilty and the accused should be given a grant or loan to cover their living expenses until sentencing. They pay it back if guilty but not if found innocent. This would be similar to employees being put on paid leave while under accusation for employment disciplinary. People shouldn't be put under financial pressure due to false accusations or face bondsmen's fees for bail on a crime they did not commit. Innocent until proven guilty and true justice for the innocent.

Some people making mistakes is one thing, and I absolutely understand that the bail system is SUPER messed up...but am I supposed to feel sorry for someone like the girl at the beginning of the video?? She and her friend obviously robbed a place. That's Not a mistake, that's just fucked up. Some laws and regulations are cruel and stupid, but come on...robbery?? I have no sympathy for that sh*t
