“This means America has set up a system whereby high risk people with money buy their way out of jail while low risk people without money sit in jail for months awaiting trial.”

“The US court system is not about justice but instead it operates as a human ‘market’ where bail is set by a judge and thus the fees for the bail bond companies can be tabulated by those who can afford to pay them.”
