Mainstream media is heralding a new landmark bill passed in California that abolishes cash bail in order to thin out prison overcrowding. Liberal proponents say that cash bail penalizes poverty while the wealthy can buy their release as they await trial. The new no cash bail system will instead give judges discretion to decide who can go home, released on their own recognizance or under supervision conditions like an ankle monitor, and who must stay in jail pending trial because they pose a threat to public safety or a flight risk. The ‘bail schedule’, a formula that attaches a monetary amount for the current crime and the defendant’s history, will be abandoned. People who are deemed low to medium risk, committing low-level offenses and non-violent felonies, will mostly be released on their own recognizance or under supervised conditions.
Last year, Lee Stranahan wrote an article about the controversial progressive backers of ‘bail reform movement’ under the banner of ‘criminal justice reform’, who include George Soros and Black Lives Matter, whose goal is to dismantle the systems that preserve law and order in the name of equity and racial fairness. The mainstream media is mum on revealing these supporters of criminal justice reform.
For example, during the Obama era, Black Lives Matter demanded an end to “mass incarceration,” which may be linked back to the Black Panther Party’s goal of releasing all minorities from prison.

An impact from the Black Lives Matter movement, funded by George Soros and leftist foundations, was the spike in murder rates in cities such as Chicago because police are intimidated from doing their jobs following non-stop protests, accusations of racism, and harassment against law enforcement.
The bail reform movement is funded by wealthy leftist groups that have launched lawsuits, protests, and bill proposals across the country to remove a key component of keeping the streets safe by holding criminals and their families financially responsible for their pretrial release.
Beth Chapman is best known to Americans as the wife of Dog the Bounty Hunter, warned that the intention after an arrest is to release the criminals back into communities with no repercussion and no deterrent.
The Washington Post failed to mention that illegal aliens will neglect to follow up on their court dates.

In the final week of 2017, Baltimore reported a total of 343 homicides. The murder rate has skyrocketed since members of Black Lives Matter began justifying violence as retaliation against law enforcement for the death of Freddie Gray, a 25-year-old black man who died in the back of a police van in 2015. Residents now are blaming the murder spike on the lack of police action in the city, which is what BLM called for.
