I've been reading "Weapons of Math Destruction" by Cathy O'Neil, who explains that due to algorithms that are fueled by faulty information, bail and sentencing are pretty much prejudice based, because it accounts, not for the facts about YOUR specific case, but for crimes committed by your family, friends, and in your neighborhood. So if you're an indigent living in a high crime area, you're going to get higher bond than you can afford, and you're going to get a longer prison term because of a supposed recidivism ratio based on your neighborhood's crime rate.

Charged for public urination? Who does that? Who arrests someone for peeing?????

It's so stupid that a bounty hunter can break into your house if they want. But police officers can't even just search a suspect's house without a warrant.
Tournel Henry
That's his fault. If you are poor, why should you drive with a suspended license if it's not an emergency?

Lol disliked for the marching band comment

Almost should be revisited since Trump is pushing for private jails.

Awesome !!! Probably your best story yet keeping innocent people out of jail!!!

This was fascinating to watch. I understand the issue the bail on a macro level being an unfair system, however, I just don't see it in my community. I interned with the police department in my area this summer and have long since been going to hearings at our downtown courthouse on a semi regular basis. I would say that the vast majority of offenders were ROR'd--as in some days I would sit through an entire docket and everyone would be ROR, unless they were currently being held in jail in another county. When I asked questions about this it was explained to me that we simply did not have room in any of our jails to house offenders and only extremely violent offenders were given bail. However, there was no clear consensus of what a violent offenders was. It was so bad that bail bondsman in our area were protesting this policy of the courts because they were lacking business. While interning with the police I learned of a case where a women attacked a uniformed officer with a brick and the officer had to get stitches. The woman was ROR. For attacking a police officer with a deadly weapon. Obviously this created real and palpable tension between police and the court system. It is so strange to hear of this seemingly epidemic problem of courts putting too many people in jail after going into work everyday and hearing the exact opposite of this problem. It is a humbling perspective because while too high of bail might be this macro problem, effecting the majority of our country, the exact opposite problem was plaguing my city. While I am glad that we don't seem to be keeping offenders and taking away their rights, RORing so many offenders is not exactly the best thing ever either. I mentioned it briefly before, but there were many times when an offender would be ROR'd and then arrested for a different crime in a different county after having tried to evade the court proceedings from their first charge. And I mean this might happen multiple times a day. I heard judges in court apologizing to lawyers that they had to ROR someone based on policy, saying that they disagreed, but the metric they were given forced them to ROR the offender. Not even give them a low bail. Just ROR them.

Jesus Christ that one guy who just gets out of his car and points a gun at those two. I would literally shoot him on the fucking spot without even thinking because he's a fucking crazy person with a gun.
Kritika Deval
I really really wanna watch that show.
TheNewbiedoodle
...is it just me, or did one of those bounty hunters () point a firearm at someone who wasn't doing anything but standing there? What the FUCK? I don't know about you, but if I saw that and I had a gun of my own, I'd probably shoot the bounty hunter, because he is POINTING A FIREARM AT SOMEONE WHO IS NOT BEING AGGRESSIVE. If it'd been a taser, or mace, fine, I still think that's a bit excessive, but a firearm? That's when it goes from "meh, I can understand that, but I still think it's excessive" to outright attempted murder in my book. I'm also about 60% sure I saw his finger on the trigger, but it's really hard to tell from that angle. If his finger IS on the trigger, then I would definitely shoot first, ask questions later.

You can't tase someone with a stungun. No one has ever even been tased by a TASER.

I have a choice between visiting US or North Korea. I would choose N. Korea every time.
Zarrell
I've always wondered about the bail-system and if it's as stupid and unfair as it sounds... this way exceeded my expectations! :O The US is stuck in the fucking wild west era. Any idiot who's read a book can conclude that allowing guns openly, having no free healthcare and having a legal system directly favouring the rich are stupid ideas to cling to.

O'Reilly from Oz cameo wins the episode. Why hasn't he had more work? I think he was great in the only thing I've seen him in.

Man dies no ohhh
Not human dog ohhhhh

Seems we have some dog fuckers in the audience much like there's chicken fuckers in office.

It's unconstitutional for this exact reason. The government can accuse an opposition person of a crime, set the bail so high they can't afford it, and force that person to remain in jail for an undetermined amount of time. If we have to have a bail system the amounts should always be within what the person can afford. A better solution would be something like charge the person but perform a supervised release. Though that has issues too just not as bad as bail.

14:21 Hey, it's the Black 20 guy! Good to see he's still getting work.

I am a republican and don't agree with most of the lefts views but bounty hunters being barely regulated is insane. I'm a off truck driver and I'm regulated until I'm blue in the the face makes no sense.
