John Oliver: Tackles the American Bail System

John Oliver tackles the bail topic in America's legal systems

John Oliver tackles the bail topic in America’s legal systems

This latest episode most poignantly speaks on the matter of how “non-violent offenders” are made to spend time in prison for not being able to procure the money to cover bail – at times as little as a few hundred dollars for bond. And this got us to thinking about another legal-based story recently in the news.
