Alabama County Faces Lawsuit Over Pregnant Vet Jailed Because She Can't Afford Freedom

Another example whether the ACLU and the SPLC are doing good.

The headline is a bit too narrow. There is quite a bit more context on what's going on with the money bail practice in a broader sense.

Property bond?
There has been a case in the news where a Chinese lady living in the US has been accused of murdering her husband. Her family put up $64 MILLION in property (and $2 MM in cash) for her bond!!!

High Property Bond

But to get back to the first post, the US, like everywhere else in the world, money talks. I am sure that there are statistics out somewhere that could relate aquital vs. net worth. My guess is that aquital rate goes up with net worth (better lawyers, more investigation by private detective, etc etc)

Oh, I think Ax and folks that think poor people should be allowed to pay low or no bond, should form a philanthropic company to let poor folks have bond money for free. After all, they'll get their money back when the person shows up for court. ;) ;) :lol2: :lol2:
