Jails are overcrowded in both Riverside and San Bernardino counties. Unless it’s a violent crime you will get bailed out. I remember a guy out on bail for car theft, arrested again for car theft( passed out in stolen car with coke and a weapon in his lap. Let out on remand the next day

He was convicted in a case involving kidnapping and assault with a deadly weapon in Nov 2021 and was out on bail before sentencing. Skipped out on sentencing, arrested, and given bail again.

In a state with progressive bail reform laws (ooh, scary, I know!) like Illinois he would not have been eligible for bail at all after something like that! Bail is stupid.

Funny because our House Rep. Ken Calvert from that area was also caught with something on his lap in his car but she was a hooker with his penis in her mouth and he just got re-elected so I'm not sure the Repubs actually care about making things better. They just like to pretend to care while concern trolling.

Even the people whose job it is to make things better aren't interested in making things better. If there were a magic wand you could wave to eliminate crime, judges and attorneys and cops would be against it. There would otherwise be no bloated public system for them to work in.
