No Bail? No Problem
"I-Bonds for everyone!" is one step closer to reality:
- A few dozen inmates who remain locked up in Cook County Jail because they’re too poor to post their relatively low bonds may be out soon under a new program State’s Attorney Kim Foxx announced for indigent, nonviolent offenders Wednesday.
After the Cook County Sheriff’s Office singled out 50 cases of those who were “languishing” in jail for several months because of their inability to post $1,000 or less, the State’s Attorney and Public Defender’s offices came together to identify those inmates who would be better served outside jail, Foxx said.
Through “agreed motions” requesting I-bonds, the inmates who qualify would be released on their own recognizance.
Dart and Foxxx will find a way to fuck it up, not a doubt in our minds. Dart can't even have his office get the paperwork straight for murderers being returned to his jail. It's like some twisted form of keeping the jail empty via incompetence.
