End Cash Bail In Philly

Reason for signing

  • The poor can't afford cash bail. A motion for financial hardship should be filed right away, in every case. Holding people unless it is high profile is unconstitutional.The prisons are privatized and they make money for eachbed they fill. It costs around 35,000 to house a prisoner for a year. Cash bail is clearly a push to umake money.
