Judges have the power to decide if a suspect can be held or not. If they are a risk then they can be held until trial.

No system is perfect, how would you like to get accused of something and have to come up with $50k cash to pay out before you're convicted?

It keeps a lot of people out of jail over simple misdemeanors.

Yes that’s exactly the problem, one of the recently arrested car thief’s was out awaiting trial on 6 other stolen car charges. They’re being arrested but not a thing happens after that
