Being detained before your trial seems to go against innocent until proven guilty.

Okay I just wanted to start off by saying the girl talking about her Father in a domestic violence is so out of touch with reality it's ridiculous. I wanted to say that first before I talk about me actually liking the video. It gives me a unique prospective. Let's be clear though her Father was accused of Domestic Violence(which for someone who lived with my father abusing my mother I can tell you that unless my mother was calling the cops on him no one did) and he was a risk to his family because he was accused of Domestic Violence. So your solution to him not having a bond (and your defense for not going through with a bill that gets rid of bonds) is to give him separate housing so he can continue to provide for your family? The winds are out of the sails. You're father wasn't a danger?? This girl is like he went to jail, told he was a risk (because of the Domestic Violence accusation) and he couldn't provide for us? Like guuuuurl I can't take you seriously AT ALL! He deserves a bond because y'all don't have a provider. I can't. Then the first girl. Okay so the story almost starts off as if she was falsely accused but it turns out she was aiding and abetting in a robbery that must of been planned out. Okay it was good she was out and her rehabilitation proves she was remorseful but she thinks that the way the new system was set up that she would't have been out. The thing that took me by surprise is the amount of police was sent her way. Helicopters? Dogs? Um that sounds a lot more serious than a "little shoplifting" but okay. The bail system benefitted her and she redeemed herself but she is literally the exception to the rule and the bail system doesn't work for people who can't get the money together in two weeks. Her family got there but trust me I have been there and the money was not gathered in two weeks. It benefitted her but what about the families below the poverty line who aren't aiding and abetting in a felony robbery?

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.

None of the arguments against implementing cashless bail make any sense The only people arguing against it are the bail-bondsman trying to make money off the misfortune of others and people who are legitimate flight risks

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.

i voted for this in new mexico in 2016 while I worked at a detention center seeing these issues and knowing they need reform. For first time offenders it was a god send. but what we soon saw was repeat offenders getting released by a judge within days, reoffending, and getting released. these risk assessment tools DO NOT WORK FOR REAL CRIMINALS! look to new mexico bail reform for reference. I see the intention and it is good. Buuut so is socialism.

8:13 *Robs store and complains that new laws would've been harsher on a robber.* *Also data would point towards certain races because certain races commit more crime and that is just a statistical fact. 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.*

Of course algorithms work - they're based on data and ethics, they're not just based on some old white mans preconceived notions on what a criminal is. It is deranged to think that any county has the funding or trust to just let people go if they claim to be sorry and flutter their eyelids, it just doesn't work like that, I've worked with risk algorithms all of my adult life

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!

The DC Youth Rehabilitation Act basically slapped violent criminals on the wrist and set them free to revictimize communities. DC should not be used as an example of criminal justice reform - violent offenders mostly repeated and escalated their crimes because they knew they faced no consequences. That act serves to coddle adults and treat them like juvenile offenders. An example https://wapo.st/2OrmAQZ

While I am thankful I have never been in trouble or needed a bail bond. I do understand the current need for them but also why they want the industry changed. I think there needs to be change on both sides and we all can agree the prison system it’s self needs reform. However with regards to the girl at the end. 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. As someone that saw it as a child and had friends that have had it bad. All you do with letting them out is give them a chance to go home and do more damage.

I mean, if you really want to make sure people go to court and want to charge them something, charge them to rent a damn ankle bracelet or tracker that goes off if they leave the state or take it off without permission. What a farce. People who haven't been convicted, especially for misdemeanors and non-violent crimes, shouldn't be treated like they've been convicted.

Not all places have bail bondsman and a lot of people are stuck in jail without a set bond. Our system is so screwed up. It truly is guilty until proven innocence regardless of what happened. And the prosecutors hate to drop charges unless they get money out of it.

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.
