Money bail system not right for NJ
A number of proposals designed to streamline and improve bail and pretrial detention policies in New Jersey have arisen in recent months, inspired by a growing consensus that our rapidly expanding jail populations are both economically unsustainable and socially harmful. The central problem with the current system is an over-reliance on money bail as the primary mechanism of pretrial release. Another unjust and destructive consequence of fashioning money bail as the central tenant of the pretrial release process is the growth of the largely unregulated and often ethically questionable bail bond business.
