Philadelphia DA drops cash bail for 'low-level' crimes
from Fox News
Philadelphia's top prosecutor said his office will stop jailing people who cannot afford to pay cash bail in minor criminal cases, affirming the commitment of the country's fifth-largest city to a national movement that argues the practice targets poor Americans. District Attorney Larry Krasner said his decision to instruct city prosecutors not to seek a bail payment in a number of misdemeanor and non-violent felony crimes will correct a criminal justice system that discriminates against African-Americans, Latinos and poor people.
