California judges want to get rid of bailing out of jail before trial.

California Supreme Court Chief Justice Tani Cantil-Sakauye came forward on tuesday this week to say she wants to get rid of the state’s cash bail system. 

Her voice is one that is actively echoing criticism that it keeps poor people behind bars while wealthier suspects can pay for their freedom.

Instead Cantil-Sakauye and others are asking that Judges would rely on assessments of defendants’ flight risk and danger to the public to determine whether they should be released into the general public or not!
