The bail is very low for the charges. He’s a career criminal.

225,000 bail! What a joke. This guy is a serious banger. He needs to stay off the street. This is where the young kids get their mentors. Remove this type of mentor for the kids sake.

According to Senate Bill 10 (Fair bail bill), signed by Gov. Brown in August, “High-risk” individuals would remain in custody until their arraignment, as would anyone who has committed certain sex crimes or violent felonies, is arrested for driving under the influence for the third time in less than 10 years, is already under supervision by the courts or has violated any conditions of pretrial release in the previous five years.” (Sacramento Bee) Will our judges, starting in October 2019, consider possession of a stolen car, a stolen loaded weapon, and cocaine for sale a “High-risk individual”? Today he can walk on giving 10% of bail to his favorite Bondsman.

I don’t not like this guy either but you know what? 8th amendment of the Constitution- we need to give him the opportunity to post bail. What’s to say a liberal judge, which we have plenty of out here, would rule that he’s not a risk to the community or a flight risk? I see more coddling by the state and courts here every year. Unfortunately I feel that the courts out here are not acting for and in the interest of the welfare of the community only the criminal, I mean, victim of oppression. Also what’s to say that the common Joe couldn’t be labeled a flight risk if an adgenda needs to be accomplished. The law is too unilateral and gives too much power to the courts, who are in bed with the beauracrats
