Obama’s DOJ Gives Poor License to Commit Crime: Justice Department Says Poor Can't Be Held When They Can't Afford Bail



I wrote a few weeks ago that the day is coming where Liberals will argue that Blacks shouldn’t be charged with the crimes they commit because it would be racist act against them by society. 
Well, this latest pronouncement by the DOJ is an incremental shift toward that goal and it is outrageous.    

NBC News reports holding defendants in jail because they can't afford to make bail is unconstitutional, the Justice Department said in a court filing late Thursday — the first time the government has taken such a position before a federal appeals court. 

It's the latest step by the Obama administration in encouraging state courts to move away from imposing fixed cash bail amounts and jailing those who can't pay. 

"Bail practices that incarcerate indigent individuals before trial solely because of their inability to pay for their release violate the Fourteenth Amendment," the Justice Department said in a friend of court brief, citing the Constitution's guarantee of equal protection.

This is absolutely ridiculous line of thinking by the Obama administration.  This is yet another step by Libs to destroy the civil society and cause mayhem and upheaval so they can impose more government control.

  1. So Jesus could not afford the bail, and it was His own damned fault.
    Probably God hates the poor, and targets them with laws, and such.
    The scandal of Law without Mammon to pay off those seeking blood.

    Of course, the rich do not know anything but to blame the system.
    If those bought in to smugness were to gain Life, that could require some choice in the matter. Why does this annoy the comfortable?
    Did you think that what lives and what dies is subject to your judgement?

      Lay off the drugs. The mind is a terrible thing to waste.

  2. I wondered how long it would take for the liberals to do something like this, after I saw a John Oliver HBO show about the unfairness of the bail system. He said pretty much what you would think. They find a poor sap that got a bum deal, according to them, and then run it to death.
