Cash bail for low-level offenses is a racket. It's a way of punishing people for being poor. It's supported by a million-dollar private industry.

Also I would agree for all non violent crimes, and misdemeanors bail reform is fine, but for felony assaults and other violent crimes the bill is a miss. Just think if instead of bail reform we made it so non violent crimes and drug offenses did not require bail, and all non violent drug offenders and other non violent criminals released with at minimum the former having their records expunged?

Much better than saying we are being fairer to SOME violent criminals.
