Los Angeles County tiptoes forward on bail reform
from Los Angeles Times
The Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors should give quick approval to a proposal by Supervisor Sheila Kuehl to consider overhauling the county's money bail system. Too bad it's the only thing about this vital effort that could be done with any urgency. It should be obvious that it's long past time to reconsider a system that keeps L.A. County jails crowded with people who are just cooling their heels awaiting trial because they can't afford to pay bail, while their riskier but richer cellmates can buy their way out.
