New Orleans DA complains about community bail funds releasing low-level offenders

from Reason

Some criminal justice reformers aren't waiting for court systems to "fix" bail so that poor people aren't stuck behind bars even when they're not flight risks or community threats. Some charitable people have launched community bail fund organizations that collect donations and then use that money to bail out people who cannot afford to cover the costs themselves. If those defendants behave and return to court as promised, the money is returned to the community group and can be used again for others. more
