The US is the only first-world country that commercializes bail. The for-profit industry rakes in more than $2 billion annually in revenue. Most criminal defendants can't pay the full bail amount and must either stay in jail or pay a 10 percent fee to secure a bond, which they won't recoup even if found not guilty.

I would like to see the rate of how fast a case gets dropped if you pay bail, because there is clearly something wrong with the system if your case gets dropped the faster you pay bail. It just sounds like extortion to be honest. It just sounds like they are seeing how long they can keep someone locked up before they loan money to pay an arbitrary cash payment to the state.

One man's slave trade is another man's marketing and branding. 2 sides of the same coin as they say.

Most bails are set at 5-10,000 depending on what you did and the severity of the crime you committed. These guys act like every bond is 500,000 or more that’s a fuckin lie. This lady in my state strangled her baby her bail was set at 500k (which I thought was too low) another guy shot a 15 year old over a cellphone (that the shooter stole) his bail was 10k he got bonded out because he was a big ass drug dealer in my town and had the money couple months later he got sentenced to 17 years. If anything the justice system favors criminals now because if I was the judge the shooter and the lady would’ve been hung in the court room.

Take some fckin german subs under the film. I understand only 30%
what's that all about??
You hear the way the redhead Italian lady talks to people. I hope they do away with bail bonds so that she can be out having to struggle like everyone else. There was no need to talk like that, but it shows her true colors. How are you gonna tell a guy on a DUI case who didn't kill anyone that she Hope's he drops the soap. Classy woman!

Britain's Illegal Rave Renaissance: Inside America's For-Profit Bail 1 day ago   37:49

Rave Culture is one of Britain’s great cultural exports, but after its first wave in the late eighties and early nineties, it was soon forced into the underground by stringent new laws and superclubs. But forward 25 years into in the midst of a nationwide purge on the nation’s nightlife, where nearly half of all British clubs have shut down in the last decade, and a new kind of scene has emerged.

Clive Martin investigates this 21st century version of Rave, where young people break into disused spaces with the help of bolt-cutters and complicated squatting laws, to suck on balloons and go hard into the early morning.

But with the police using increasingly extreme tactics to clamp down on these parties, and more than one fatality causing nationwide media panic, can the scene survive?
