Controversy and indecision regarding the future of the cash bail system is never-ending. Some state lawmakers have done away with it altogether.

Even with the COVID-19 pandemic, bail bonds reform laws are still an important storyline to follow. Lawlessness breeds crime, crime of the sort making its way across the country right now breeds anger, and anger breeds action which defies logic.
