    SOOOO, MOST people do NOT have a clue about how the system is screwing them over UNTIL they get accused of something they did NOT do. America has a VERY CORRUPT LEGAL SYSTEM and NO, ZERO JUSTICE SYSTEM!!!!

    The harder you fight to change it, the harder the lobbyists will fight to ensure it stays the same because bail bondsmem are worried about their profit margins.

    oh idk, maybe when you have an automatic system choosing what your sentencing is, make it so the Race doesn't get placed in as a factor, problem solved!

      To a point. In the US, blacks use weed at about the same rate as whites, but get arrested about 4x as often. So the sentencing could be fair, but it doesn't help if the arrest rates are not. It would also require laws not be aimed squarely at one segment of society. Nixon aimed the War on Drugs at the blacks and the anti-war hippies, so while alcohol results in ~11000 traffic deaths per year, plus all the liver-related deaths, and weed very little, it's those who smoke who get nailed based on "Reefer Madness" propaganda. One last (?) point is that judges are there to judge circumstances, and minimum sentencing laws (an automatic system) are causing them to put people into jail for decades for what should be a minor infraction.

    Tell me again why america is so great to live in? Ooooooh... you need to be white, male, straight, christian and at least in the top 10% earners ... all else will fit in the cast system, next the less 90% earners, than the dogs and cats of white males, asian males top 10% earners, latino and black males top 10% earners, and completely at the bottom, women, gays, lesbians and people from other religion. Wow so nice to live in an a segregated land.

    I would bet that the software isn't racist. Society is. The algorithms probably don't consider skin colour. However the metrics used to determine outcomes as described in the piece reflect societal inequality.

    Been arrested more than a few times and bail is in fact bullshit. It's just too gd tempting to post if you can because you want out at any cost because for me it is so dehuminizing regardless of guilt or innocence. If you are in there, you are guilty because why else would you be in that jumpsuit and unable to make any decisions for yourself?

    The software isn't necessarily racist. Black people are poor so they have fewer reasons to not run away. In many black areas there are no jobs...or no jobs worth having.

    Bail is the most absurd thing in US justice system. I mean...imagine a scenario.
    A guy suspected of robbing a bank is arrested and his bail is determined to be 10 000$.
    The guy( who actually is a criminal who just robbed 1 000 000$ ) will pay the 10k, and then fly off to another country to enjoy his money.
    At the same time, a poor guy who is suspected of robbing a bank( but is actually innocent ) can't afford his 10k bail and must stay in jail for months...perhaps a year until his court case is finally settled. During that time...he will lose his job...marriage, reputation, health(gets beaten up in prison).
    Bail is not about keeping the criminals in jail... it's about releasing them selectively, based on their financial status. It has nothing to do with "making the person not run away".
    If a murderer is given bail of 10 000$ and he is wealthy enough to pay his bail(or can just borrow the money)....do you think he will return to the court whilst knowing that he is actually a murderer and will face a life in prison or death penalty? No, he would wave goodbye to his 10k and take his chances in another country.
    Only a guilty person who is confident that he didn't leave behind enough evidence to get convicted would return to "get his money back".
    Innocent people will not run away anyways...bail or no bail...and guilty ones will run regardless of bail.

    There is a simple formula for bail.
    White person formula: bail X 0.10
    Black person formula: bail X 100
    Other minorities formula: bail X 10

    With the current labor conditions, you are going to have more people sitting in jail = worst conditions = more jails = more judges = more $$..BailHotline Bail Bonds bailout homeless people because money is not the only option.

    America's prison system is SOOO fucked up! Now they have prisons for profit, it's modern day slavery and the only real difference is they don't use whips and some white people get to take part. If America stopped locking up non violent offenders the jails would be almost empty.

    I disagree with the point that makers of the algorithm have to be racist. I dont think it sees race because its never told what it is. Instead its the whole american history that lead to black people sharing similar backgrounds.

    The bail system is an excellent way to oppress the poor, our criminal justice system was supposed to be the same for everyone thats why lady justice is blind folded she is not supposed to see the color of someones skin, or how well they are dressed, or even what they are throwing at her (hint: its 100$ bills in bags with $$ signs on them) but the bail system is merely one example of how Justice cares about the money you have, the rich get out the poor get jailed... thats how it works until you are actually proven guilty...

    He's off actually. Judges set high bails, like 50 k for small offenses. Bail bondsmen front that 50 k and takes 7.5 k even if the offender shows up for trial, it's thrown out or he's innocent. The bail bondsmen then gives 2.5 to the judge for their re-election campaign, then donate 2.5 k to conservative elections. Then keep 2.5 k.
    It's an iron triangle of misery.

    IF the US so desperately needs a fucking "pay to get out of prison" system, why not use a percentage instead of a fixed amount, so that when spoiled, rich pricks get in prison, they *really* feel the pain when they have to pay up to get out of jail.

    But I guess it has more to do with making and keeping the rich people happy,...

    Straw bales are yellow, and hay bales are green. Straw bales (wheat by product) are very light. A large child could pick up a (yellow) straw bale. A hay bale is another story. It can be outrageously heavy, and animals eat it. Most animals do not eat straw, but they do sleep in it to keep warm. So, when news talks about hay they should avoid showing (yellow) straw bales? Hay is green, and always will be green.
