Bail Reform Strikes Again

Bail Bond Reform

In 2014 New Jersey voters were fooled into approving an amendment to the state constitution. A ballot question was presented that seemed to imply that state wanted to make it easier to detain potentially dangerous criminals who were awaiting trial. Of course concerned citizens approved this seemingly common sense initiative. When the changes went into effect in 2017 however, it became apparent that writers of the ballot question had pulled a fa...

New Hampshire State Flag

Anti-bail bonds advocates managed to convince New Hampshire Governor Chris Sununu to sign SB 556 last year. That bill brought sweeping changes to the Granite State’s long established bail system. The goal, as stated by Sununu at the time, was to eliminate inequality in the criminal justice system by making sure no one was being held simply because they couldn’t afford bail. The reality of SB 556 however has turned out to be quite different. And...

John Arnold

In case you didn’t know the driving force behind the recent spate of anti-bail efforts nationwide has been an entity called the Arnold Foundation. The non-profit foundation was started by John Arnold, a former executive of the disgraced Enron Corporation, and took up bail reform as its reason for being.

Since picking up the standard of bail reform the foundation has been telling anyone who would listen that bail bonds in America was a corrupt...

West Virginia Justice System

Bail reform mercenaries have been crisscrossing the country in the past few years trying desperately to sell their snake oil to short-sighted politicians. No surprise that they’ve found plenty of them in places like New York and California. In West Virginia however, where common sense is still held in high regard, legislators recently rejected the fundamentally flawed notion that releasing more criminals onto the streets makes for a fair, safe...

ACLU stamp of rejection

Now that Jerry Brown's final insult to the people of California - otherwise known as Senate Bill 10 or SB10 - is finally about to take effect it's a good time to look back at this travesty to see if we can figure out why even those knights of the so-called "progressive" movement, the ACLU, came to loathe it. It's not often that the ACLU comes out in opposition to a major piece of legislation from the left, but in this case, they made no secret...

State of California

Updated on July 24th 2023

On October 1st 2019, Jerry's Revenge - commonly referred to as SB10 - took effect in the once Golden State. For those who haven't been keeping up with news from the bail reform front SB10 is California's deep dive into the world of catch-and-release "justice." Its proponents claim that by removing the incentive to appear in court that bail bonds provide society will be safer, and taxpayers will save millions th...

Alaska and Scales of Justice

For several years the so-called "bail reform" movement, led by the private Arnold Foundation, was able to go about its antisocial work largely in the dark. Bail reform was not an issue on most people's minds. So when a state or county somewhere decided to embrace a "catch and release" approach to criminal conduct, it barely made a ripple in the media. However, in the wake, New Jersey's disastrous no-bail experiment and California's 11th-hour ad...

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. In its stead they propose using a deeply flawed com...
