Well-dressed man at podium speaks against bail reform, while onlookers hold signs reading 'what about the victims?'

Pretty much the minute the clock struck midnight on December 31st and the New Year began horror stories have been filtering out of the great state of New York. Not traffic horror stories or horror stories about the price of apartments in the East Village. Horror stories related to the state’s newly enacted bail reform legislation. As predicted by just about everyone with a lick of common sense releasing suspected criminals immediately without a...

The so-called ‘bail reform’ movement of the past decade has hit some significant roadblocks in the past couple of years. It began with Alaska rolling back its bail reform law after it turned the Great White North into the Wild Wild West. Right here in Jefferson County, Arapahoe County and Denver County people had the good sense to recognize the bail reform snake oil salesmen for what they were/are and send them packing.

One of the biggest blows...

Animation with two silhouettes and text reading 'sorry' and 'not sorry'

If you asked people who they think has been behind the bail bonding reform movement some would probably say former California Governor Jerry Brown. Others might say former President Obama. And still others might say President Trump. Chances are good that 0 would say “The Arnold Foundation”. But while all of those political figures and many more have chimed in on the subject it was indeed the non-profit Arnold Foundation - founded by a former ex...

New York Times newspaper cover on February 18th 2020

For decades, the New York Times was considered a bellwether for responsible journalism. If you read an article in the Times, even if you didn’t agree with it, you could be reasonably sure the reporter had done his due diligence. You could also be reasonably sure that the editorial board double and triple-checked their facts before opening their collective mouth on an issue. Not anymore.

Over the past 20 years the Times, along with most othe...

Animation of Arnold Ventures founders holding S.O.S. sign on a sinking ship

In late July, a coalition of more than 100 civil society groups including the NAACP, ACLU and Black Lives Matter published a statement calling for states not to adopt the Arnold Foundation’s pretrial risk assessment tool. The statement also called on the few states that have already adopted it to stop using it. This was an extraordinary step considering these groups were some of the most vocal opponents of the bail bonds system the Arnold algo...

Bail Reformers Target Ohio

Ohio State Flag waving with white overlay

For nearly a decade the bail reform movement snuck around the country quietly working behind the scenes to try and undo a nearly thousand year old legal tradition: bail bonds. For a while they enjoyed some success, largely because the media paid little attention to the issue and all taxpayers heard were some vague promises that bail reform would save millions.

In the past couple of years, however, the worm has turned and reformers are being s...

Four police cars with blinking sirens in active pursuit

Bail reformers are fond of telling anyone who will listen that the current system punishes the poor. The jails are full, they say, of poor, innocent victims of a racist, corrupt judiciary and that ultimate boogeyman: the bondsman. The sad thing is reformers have actually managed to sell their snake oil to legislators in New Jersey, California, and a few other states, all of which have come to regret drinking...

Anytime you bail out a friend or loved one you’re taking a chance. If the accused heads for the hills after being released and is never heard from again you are going to lose and lose big. If you paid cash instead of using a bondsman that cash will be forfeited. If you posted a property bond the court may foreclose on your house and sell it to get the bail amount, and if you enlisted the help of a bail bonds agent they are going to come knockin...

When a person has been arrested there’s a lot going through their mind and it can sometimes be difficult to take a step back, take a breath and make sound decisions. One mistake a lot of people who have been arrested in Denver County, Golden, and elsewhere in Colorado make is deciding to act as their own bail bond agent by paying their own bail. Certainly, if they have the means it’s entirely legal for them to do so, but just because you can...

Although those in favor of eliminating the centuries-old bail bonds system suffered a much deserved setback last year in the Colorado state senate, that hasn’t stopped them from trying to saddle taxpayers with their backward, short-sighted ideas. In fact, as you read this lobbyists are working the corridors of power in Denver trying to get legislators behind new efforts to eliminate cash bail.
