If cash bail ends in state, what are the alternatives?
Bail bonds industry is spending millions to defeat the measure

When the push to eliminate California’s cash bail
system began in the state Legislature several years ago,
the battle lines were clearly drawn.
On one side were civil rights groups and criminal
justice reform advocates arguing that cash bail is unjust
because it allows wealthy defendants to buy their way
out of jail as they await trial, while poor defendants
who are unable to post bond — disproportionately
Black and Latinx — wind up stuck behind bars. On the
other side, advocates for tougher criminal penalties, as
well as the bail bonds industry, insisted looser bail
rules could put public safety at risk.
Now as California’s voters decide this November
whether or not to scrap cash bail, disagreements over
what would replace it have split the coalition that
fought long and hard for its end.
If approved, criminal defendants would no longer post
a cash bond to get out of jail before trial. Instead, their
release would depend on the severity of charges they
face and a “risk assessment” meant to determine
whether they are likely to commit new crimes or fail to
show up for court.
The measure’s supporters say that means defendants
who pose little risk to the public won’t be needlessly
locked up for months or even years as their cases move
through the system because they can’t afford bond.
Their families won’t have to fork over huge sums to
bail bonds companies to secure their loved ones’ freedom. Those who pose more of a danger
would stay in jail.
But Raj Jayadev, a criminal justice reform activist and
co-founder of Silicon Valley De-Bug, warns that the
risk-assessment algorithms judges would use to
determine whether someone can be safely released
from jail would only perpetuate racial bias in the
courts. It’s a stance that puts groups like Jayadev’s in an
uncomfortable position: on the same side as a bail
bonds industry he regards as “parasitic,” and that is
spending millions to defeat the initiative.
“Are we going to replace money bail with a new
system that is also oppressive, and also stripping of
liberty, and also fueling incarceration? Or are we going
to take the opportunity to imagine something totally
different?” Jayadev said. “That’s what we’re fighting
for.” The split could doom a long-held goal of
progressive reformers that has made its way into more
mainstream plans to overhaul the criminal justice
system: Former Vice President Joe Biden has pledged
to lead national efforts to eliminate cash bail if he is
John Bauters, budget advocacy director for the
Alliance for Safety and Justice, a group that supports
Proposition 25, said concerns about the risk
assessments are valid. But they don’t justify rejecting
the measure, Bauters said.
“People want a system that promotes safety and
justice,” he said, “and the bottom line is that the current
system does neither of those things.
“The bail industry is very happy to sit back and be
quiet and let people turn it into a debate that it is not,”
Bauters said. “The choice is: Should we eliminate the
cash bail system?” Under Proposition 25, most people
booked into jail on misdemeanor charges would be
released within 12 hours. A report from the nonpartisan
Public Policy Institute of California estimated 142,500
misdemeanor defendants would be released from jail
more quickly as a result.
People charged with felonies and certain misdemeanor
defendants – those accused of domestic violence,
current system would have a longer jail stay because of
the risk assessment, and may wind up being detained
while their case is pending.
Gov. Jerry Brown signed into law a bail reform system
ushered in by Senate Bill 10 in 2018, over the
objection of Jayadev’s group and others. The bail
industry immediately challenged the law, and it has
been put on hold pending the outcome of this
Supporters of cash bail contend that having defendants
put money down is the best way to ensure they will
show up for their court dates and not commit any new
crimes. Attorney and former state Assemblyman Mike
Gatto, a spokesman for the No on Prop. 25 campaign,
predicted the new system would “probably re- sult in a
whole lot of people who shouldn’t get out of jail getting
out, and it will probably result in a whole lot of people
being kept in jail who probably shouldn’t stay in.”
Separate from the ballot measure, local judges have
been ordered to consider whether defendants can afford
to post bond, or could be released with monitoring,
when setting bail amounts. That order is part of a legal
challenge to California’s cash bail system mounted by
civil rights groups in 2017, now under review at the
state Supreme Court.
Washington, D.C., Kentucky and New Jersey have
reduced or eliminated their use of cash bail by relying
on risk assessments. A 2018 report from New Jersey’s
court system found jail populations fell as a result of
the change, while defendants were not significantly
more likely to miss court or commit new crimes. Still,
critics question whether those new systems are safer or
more just than the ones they replaced.
California’s risk assessment algorithms have not been
created yet, and it will be up to each county to decide
which factors to consider. Bauters said there are
“guardrails” meant to keep those tools from
perpetuating discrimination. Counties would have to be
transparent about what criteria they use in their
assessments and review them for potential bias every
And activists could keep working with lawmakers to
further improve the new pre-trial release system,
Bauters said. But that’s only if the measure passes.
Lawmakers probably would be reluctant to take the
issue back up if it fails, he said, while the bail bonds
stalking or sex crimes, or who have a history of failing
to appear in court, among other exceptions – would be
held for up to 36 hours while the court conducts a risk
assessment that would classify defendants as being a
low, medium or high risk for committing new crimes
or failing to show up for their court dates.
Those at higher risk would be ineligible for release.
Local judges would have substantial discretion to
decide which defendants considered low or medium
risk should be held in jail and which can be released,
often with conditions or monitoring.
The PPIC report estimates that about 3,000 felony
defendants who might post bail quickly under the
industry could point to the failed referendum as proof
voters want to keep the cash bail system in place.
“The Legislature is going to say, ‘Voters do not want us
to do bail reform,’ ” Bauters said.
Alleged killer talked with Boogaloo Bois
Feds say man who murdered officer in Oakland planned attacks against police with extremist group
|By Nate Gartrell
For the first time, the U.S. Department of Justice has
linked a Texas man accused of shooting up a
Minnesota police precinct in May to the U.S. Air Force
sergeant who allegedly targeted and murdered a federal
officer in Oakland one day later, saying the loosely
organized extremist movement known as the Boogaloo
Bois coordinated as they targeted law enforcement
officials and structures across the country.
“Go for police buildings,” a suspected Boogaloo Boi
named Ivan Hunter, a Texas resident, allegedly
messaged Steven Carrillo on Facebook. The message
was sent hours after Carrillo and a man he met on a
Boogaloo Facebook group allegedly drove to
downtown Oakland where Carrillo opened fire at a
security booth at the federal building, killing Federal
Protective Services officer Patrick Dave Underwood.
“I did better lol,” was Carrillo’s reply, federal
These conversations, detailed by FBI agents in court
records that were unsealed this week, give the public
its first glimpse into allegations that Boogaloo Bois
have acted in concert while carrying out high-profile
attacks against police. Federal authorities have alleged
that members had discussed violence against law
enforcement for months before they took advantage of
widespread protests after the George Floyd killing to
carry them out. Hunter expressed a desire to “riot” in Minnesota in the
aftermath of the George Floyd killing, brought guns
with him on the multi-state trip, and later admitted to
helping set a precinct on fire, authorities allege. The
com- plaint against him alleges Hunter referred to
himself as a “terrorist” in the presence of an FBI
“I didn’t’ protest peacefully Dude Want something to
change? Start risking felonies for what is good,”
Hunter allegedly said in a Facebook message two
weeks after the precinct shooting.
Federal prosecutors in Minnesota have hit Hunter with
a rioting charge for allegedly opening fire at the police
precinct on May 28. On May 29, Carrillo and another Bay Area man,
Robert Justus, allegedly met at the San Leandro BART station after becoming acquainted through a Boogaloo Bois Facebook group.
I nve s t i g at or s fou nd posts on Facebook made by
Hunter and Benjamin Ryan Teeter — a Boogaloo Bois
member from North Carolina — stating that they were
planning to go to Minneapolis. Hunter and Teeter
communicated with each other as they traveled from
their respective states to Minnesota, the complaint
alleges.They set off for Oakland, where Justus allegedly did
reconnaissance on foot. Justus drove the van while
Carrillo opened fire at the FPS security booth, killing
Underwood and injuring his partner. Carrillo seemed
energized after the shooting, Justus told authorities
days after the shooting when he arrived at an FBI
building to offer a full confession.
Days after the May 29 killing of Under wood, Hunter
messaged Carrillo that he was going to be “ in the
woods for a bit.” Carrillo allegedly wired him $200.
“ Now I stand a better chance Steve,” Hunter allegedly
wrote.Later in the conversation, Carrillo allegedly told
Hunter that he was “doing goods— out there” and
reminded him to stay safe.
“ You too king,” Hunter allegedly responded.
|A week after the Underwood killing, Carrillo allegedly
ambushed Santa Cruz County deputies outside his
home in Ben Lomond, opening fire and lobbing
homemade pipe bombs at them. Carrillo killed Sgt.
Damon Gutzwiller and wounded two other officers,
and he wasn’t arrested until a civilian thwarted his
carjacking attempt and wrestled him to the ground.
Hunter allegedly found out about Carrillo’s arrest from
the news, and shared an article with other Boogaloo
Bois. “ Well, s—,” he allegedly wrote alongside the
Later, Hunter allegedly told an FBI informant —
referred to in court records as Confidential Human
Source or CHS — that he and Carrillo were in regular
contact.“Hunter told the CHS that he is a Boogaloo Bois
member and that he and Carrillo were founding
members of the ‘ Happy Friends Group’ which,
according to Hunter, is a ‘fire team’ that responds with
violence if the police try to take their guns away,” an
FBI agent wrote in an affidavit.
The Boogaloo Bois are a loosely-structured antigovernment movement that is built on the belief that a
second American civil war is looming. It has a white
supremacist faction, but also has members who’ve seen
the Black Lives Matter movement as an opportunity to
drum up violence against police.
“Go to the riots and support our own cause. Show them
the real targets,” Carrillo allegedly wrote on a Boogaloo Facebook group, according to the FBI.
Court documents say that between May 27 and May
28, Hunter traveled from Texas to Minneapolis and
expressed a desire to “riot.”
Hunter also communicated with Michael Solomon, a
Boogaloo Bois member and a Minnesota resident.
Hunter sent his precise location to Solomon on the
evening of May 28; two blocks away from the
Minneapolis Police Department’s Third Precinct
building. A video taken that night shows a man,
identified in the complaint as Hunter, firing 13 rounds
from a semiautomatic rifle into the Third Precinct,
according to court documents.
The shooter then walks toward the camera, highfives
another person and yells, “Justice for Floyd!” The
shooter is seen wearing a skull mask covering the
lower- half of his face and wearing glasses, a baseball
cap, and tactical gear, court documents allege.
Hunter later wrote on Facebook that he, “ burned
police stations with black panthers in Minneapolis” and
“ I helped the community bum down that police station
in Minneapolis,” the complaint alleges.
When Hunter returned to Texas, he made several
statements on social media about the Minneapolis
violence he participated in, court documents say. On
June 3, Austin police officers initiated a stop on a pickup truck for various traffic violations. Hunter was one
of three occupants in the vehicle and sat in the front
passenger seat. Hunter had six loaded magazines for an
AK- 47 style assault rifle fastened to a vest he was
wearing, court documents allege.
It wasn’t until several days after the stop that the FBI
became aware of the connection between Hunter and
Carrillo, according to the complaint.
Hunter was arrested Wednesday in San Antonio and
made his first appearance in court Thursday.
Carrillo and Justus are still in Santa Rita Jail in Dublin
where they face federal charges that carry a possible
death sentence. Carrillo is also facing a death penalty
murder case in Santa Cruz County for the killing of
Gutzwiller. Katrina Pross of the Pioneer Press

The ANT AND THE GRASSHOPPER
This one is a little different …Two Different Versions..
The ant works hard in the withering heat all summer long, building his house and laying up supplies for the winter.

MORAL OF THE OLD STORY:
Be responsible for yourself!
The ant works hard in the withering heat and the rain all summer long, building his house and laying up supplies for the winter.
The grasshopper thinks the ant is a fool and laughs and dances and plays the summer away.
Come winter, the shivering grasshopper calls a press conference and demands to know why the ant should be allowed to be warm and well fed while he is cold and starving.
CBS, NBC, PBS, CNN, and ABC show up to provide pictures of the shivering grasshopper next to a video of the ant in his comfortable home with a table filled with food.
America is stunned by the sharp contrast. How can this be, that in a country of such wealth, this poor grasshopper is allowed to suffer so?
Kermit the Frog appears on Oprah with the grasshopper and everybody cries when they sing, ‘It’s Not Easy Being Green’.
Occupy the Anthill stages a demonstration in front of the ant’s house where the news stations film the Black Lives Matter group singing, We shall overcome.
Then Reverend Al Sharpton has the group kneel down to pray for the grasshopper while he damns the ants. He later appears on MSNBC to complain that rich people do not care.
Former President Obama condemns the ant and blames Donald Trump, President Bush 43, President Bush 41, President Reagan, Christopher Columbus, and the Pope for the grasshopper’s
Nancy Pelosi & Chuck Schumer exclaim in an interview on The View that the ant has gotten rich off the back of the grasshopper, and both call for an immediate tax hike on the ant to make him pay his fair share.
Finally, the EEOC drafts the Economic Equity & Anti-Grasshopper Act retroactive to the beginning of the summer.
The ant is fined for failing to hire a proportionate number of green bugs and, having; nothing left to pay his retroactive taxes, his home is confiscated by the
Government Green Czar, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and given to the grasshopper.
The story ends as we see the grasshopper and his free-loading friends finishing up the last bits of the ant’s food while the government house he is in, which, as you recall, just happens to be the ant’s old house,
The ant has disappeared in the snow, never to be seen again.
The grasshopper is found dead in a drug related incident, and the house, now abandoned, is taken over by a gang of spiders who terrorize the ramshackle, once prosperous and peaceful, neighborhood.
The entire Nation collapses bringing the rest of the free world with it.
