New app collects spare change toward bail
from By Michelle R. Matisons
The U.S. prison industry currently holds 2.2 million people behind bars. Of that number, an estimated 700,000 people sit in jails awaiting trials. They are locked up because they are unable to post bail. As more and more Americans get ensnared in some aspect of mass incarceration, different projects seek to rectify these hardships. A popular new app, Appolition, aims to direct users' spare change toward raising bail.
