Sorry, it may sound like a great idea, or maybe not. Several judges are giving you a bond PLUS pretrial at arraignments. Yep that is what they are doing. If you are lucky and the jails are full to capacity, if you don't have a record of Failure To Appear (FTA's)on previous arrest cases, if it's not a serious crime, they may release you on your own recognizance (OR'd), plus put you on pretrial. Every week I see several in custody again for missing pretrial, they call it, "Fail to comply Alternative St", or you get a warrant for your arrest. As for calling to remind you of your court, they never do that. You are given a code, and you better go when they call you, that means, miss work unexpectedly and hope your boss doesn't get upset, pretrial is like probation before you are convicted...basically....which means more money for the jails on this pretrial.

I want the creators of Brooklyn Nine Nine to help make Pretrial Services become a reality.

Republicans spearheaded prison reform with Rand Paul. he attacked Sessions recently on this issue. he's a doctor and understands science and case studies. Dems need to reach across the aisle on this issue ASAP.

watching the usa from outside sometimes feels so crazy. like you see all the parodies they make and think, oh, that would be ridiculous, but then the actual thing is just like that.
murica goes deeper than it seems

I don't care if the dog is attacking you, don't shoot a dog. Kick it and yell, hell, bite them in the ear.

They fucked up a bit at 7:50, that idea of killing themselves and (then) jumping into a shark pool is actually a completely legitimate thing to say, even adds to the style of it: This is called hysteron proteron.

"The hysteron proteron is a rhetorical device. It occurs when the first key word of the idea refers to something that happens temporally later than the second key word. The goal is to call attention to the more important idea by placing it first.[1]."

It actually happens a lot in modern day English in some set expressions such as "shoes and socks" or "lock and load" etc.

I spent 2 days in jail for littering. For real.

If you don't want to go to jail, DON'T COMMIT A CRIME!

John Oliver isn't an American citizen, yet he says "our." He is not an American. When you let foreigners speak for Americans, where does it stop?
Le Touriste
Why are American still live in this country? You guys can easily get visa for most countries on the world,and all these countries are better than USA for raising your children

Hahaha you people are funny "bounty hunters this, you aren't a cop that" first of all. Bounty hunters and bail bondsmen are two completely different things. Second. You're right. A bondsman isn't a cop. They have more authority than a cop. When you bond out under a bondsman you are pretty much legally their property. Don't like it? Pay the court the full amount of your bond. Or just sit in jail. Or don't be a low life and get locked up in the first place. But when you do and a bondsman kicks in your door and beats your ass in front of your kids it's nobodies fault but your own. Get your life together.

Would watch

I wouldn't go fucking around with The Nose, that guy looks like he's on top of his game.

Bounty hunting is clearly a private enterprise invasion of a realm that belongs in civil government, bail bonds should be the same as any other loan. Lloyds of London offers, I believe, to insure fairly outré stuff. They are not authorised to hire killers.
Albert Rogers
While we're on the subject of unjust imprisonment, I know why as a volunteer blood donor I am sked if I've been in prison.
I haven't, but the assumption of an unacceptable probability that incarceration exposes my blood to anal rape- induced AIDS contamination means that prisoners are not adequately protected.

My boyfriend is a bail bondsman who also occasionally has to go looking for people who don't come to their court date (so I guess technically also a bounty hunter?). Him and the company he works for are nothing like what's described here. He helps these people out a lot and doesn't bring any weapons when he's out looking for people. The system isn't perfect by any means, but with the way it is now, there are respectable bail bondsmen out there who aren't trying to act like faux cops or some TV show. He also was required to have training and continuing education classes.

Bounty Hunters: like Central American death squads, but with 1980s wrestling-style mullets.

Jesus Fucking Christ, that's just fucked up. Our justice system here in Austria sometimes leaves a bit to desired, but compared to the US system, I guess it's bloody paradise.

Wait, "Meet Big Benny. They call him 'Teddy Bear'." No, they call him 'Big Benny'! That's NOT his legal name, and you can't have TWO nicknames! Also, 'Teddy Bear' would make sense, if his name was 'Ted', not 'Benny'! FUCK THAT SHOW!!!
