Golden Gate Bridge and surrounding water in San Fransisco, California

In 2019 voters in San Francisco narrowly elected one Chesa Boudin as their new district attorney. Boudin was an anti-bonding company zealot who had been a public defender but had zero experience when it came to prosecuting criminals. Nonetheless, he was now the chief law enforcement official in the City by the Bay.

Boudin, however, was not totally unfamiliar with the workings of the judicial system. His pa...

Chicago Theater, skyscrapers and traffic in downtown Chicago, Illinois on cloudy day

Chicago has a well-earned reputation for being the murder capital of the US. Last year alone some 800 individuals were murdered in Chicago, nearly double the number murdered in New York City, a city more than three times as large. Those 800 murders last year represent a significant uptick from previous years and just happen to coincide with Illinois eliminating cash bail and essentially outlawing the bail bond agent at the start of 2021.

Closed handcuffs and paper stamped with "GUILTY" in black on wooden desk

In 2017, a three-judge panel of the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of Texas ruled that the existing bail bonding rules in Harris County (Houston) were legally problematic and ordered the county to make major reforms. As a result of the ruling Harris County instituted a catch-and-release system for most misdemeanors and significant reforms to the way people accused of more serious charges were processed following their arrest.

'FAIL' in all caps, white font against black and white background

Evidence that Chicago’s misguided attempt at bail reform has crashed and burned in the same way similar efforts have cratered all over the country recently came from an unlikely source. Loyola University, long a hotbed of Jesuit activism that has embraced all of the worst, most regressive elements of wokeism, recently published an exhaustive paper on the results of bail reform in the windbag city. The study behind it was supposed to show what a...

Arrow signs labeled 'right' and 'wrong' pointing in opposite directions

Those opposed to the travesty called "bail reform" are often accused by social extremists of being bail bond company lackeys who put too much emphasis on the negative and not enough on the positive. Those hilariously named "social justice warriors" point to figures that show overall prison populations are down. They also repeat the claim that the main goal of bail reform was not to create a utopia but to sto...

In 2019, New York State instituted what was hailed by its supporters as a landmark piece of bail reform legislation. No longer would justice be undermined by the bail bond agent. No longer would decent, upstanding citizens be victimized by a bail system intent on punishing people for being poor. Now, everyone but the most violent offenders (and even some of them) would be released on their own recognizance so t...

During the 1990s and the early 2000s, Denver was something of a peaceful oasis at the base of the Rocky Mountains. Not anymore. Since 2014 the total number of murders, rapes, aggravated assaults, and car thefts has increased by more than 50% and the explosion in crime shows no signs of abating. In 2021 alone, 96 people were murdered in Denver - the highest homicide rate since 1981.

The ripple effects fro...

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...
