    After hearing the current trend of some "progressive" jurisdictions no longer requiring or doing away with a cash bail because it is "discriminatory" against those of low income or color, the ACLU has announced they are filing suit against Canadian County, Ok. because they still require the "barbaric and discriminatory" practice. Canadian County, just west of Oklahoma City, has a reputation for aggressive investigation and numerous sting operations regarding child pornography and drug trafficking. I realize that I haven't been involved in the game for a while, but I do remember that bail was considered a type of "surety bond" for someone to show up to court to answer charges. Maybe somebody should remind the ACLU that if you don't break the law you don't need to worry about bail in the first place.

    Math is racist, standardized test are racist, grading is racist, most arrest are racist, bail is racist. Just some of the progressive speak. The criminal is the victim, screw the actual victims of crime.

    Soros is backing more and more DA's that follow this way of thinking. They don't want minorities in prison, no matter how dangerous they are.

    I usually don't agree with the UCLA but if you have two guys that are arrested for the same crime and one can basicly buy his freedom out of jail because he is rich and one has to sit in jail because he is poor that relly doesn't sound fair...plus there is that whole innocent until proven guilty thing..

    Lofty sentiment. IMO anyone who fights a lawful arrest, runs from the Police... Gets no bail. They endangered others to avoid going to jail. Odds are they won't show up for court.
    Life is not fair. You hurt children it really shouldn't be fair.
    Bail should be reasonable. IF you are not a danger to the public, are unlikely to leave the country..... Bail should be lower.
    The guy arrested for the 13th time DUI, lic revoked @7 DUIs ago, still driving, last accident caused serious injuries... (buys $800 car with current plates, has no insurance...). He needs to sit in jail.

    Whatever happened to You Walk Bail Bonds?

    Saw a 30-second t.v. ad years ago promoting their 'Diffin-Do-Nuffin' pricing for the wrongly rousted .... :wow: They said: 'Immediate release guaranteed, or you don't pay for one damn day!'

    As I recall, the ad even ended with: 'We'll have you back on the street faster than your arresting officer can finish a donut and coffee.'

    :rofl:

    If they can't afford to pay cash for the bail, there should be a county work team they can work on to settle the amount. County commissioners can sort out the dollar per hour rate to mow, pick up trash, muck out the stables, wash county cars, whatever.

    I do believe having people work for something is now racist also.

    ACLU will lose, but they don't care, since their lefty lawyers get to pay themselves from donated money, regardless.

    "Racist" is now defined as anything a progressive liberal doesn't like. If you can't defend your position with reasoned logic and facts, just say "you're racist!" Instantly, you're a winner!

    Can't be, I see probationers picking up roadside debris all the time here in Harris County, Texas.

    San Antonio is likely to go that way, however, the go easy policy only applies to non violent offenses and I doubt DWI arrests are given that break. Don

    I have always liked"Cool Hand Luke"as a way to keep prisoners busy.Instead of T.V. and pumping iron,work on the highways cutting weeds,picking up trash,etc.If you are arrested,instead of bail,work it off.Rich or poor,work is work.The chain gang was/is a good idea IMHO.

    Don’t do the crime, if you can’t do the time. Heard that somewhere......

    As far as bail being racist, there’s a story there. Just sayin’.

    It seems some posters are confusing bail with punishment (fines and probation).

    The most recent stats compiled by the DOJ say violent crime is down across the board in the US...but that could easily change if we continue to arrest small-time users while releasing the violent dealers etc...remember to EDC and carry a spare mag
