It is unfair and rather wildly unreasonable to disrespect individuals who are indigent.

In the case of arrest and bail, such as the charge of 242 California Penal Code (Battery), a person yeilding a reasonably high income may be booked and released on bail, let's assume in the amount of $500.00. That person may be released immediately, should she or he decides to spend the money.

There are no choices for the poor, when food for them is scarce; $2,000 per month for rent is only a dream; baby diapers, for most, is a strain on the household; the only choice many have is to find a way to keep warm or freeze.

$500.00 to most, when bail is demanded, is unreachable in this downward economy.

It appears interpretly collusion when capitalism supports or sides with the wealthy and subjects disciplinary exertions on the poor.

It seems it's all racism, all the time w/the GOP...Neo-Nazi robocall hits Iowa on Molly Tibbett’s murder: “KILL THEM ALL. ” Richard Wolff drops by about the National Debt. Is it a disaster or an OK thing? Also - Trump & The National Enquirer - Is the Economy Here To Serve Us Or Are We Here to Serve the economy?
