LA goon hack politician Bob Hertzberg must have been encouraged by the Gascon recall botch to bring back his looney idea to eliminate cash bail in California. He pulled his last Zero Bail effort after catching heat over this crap idea.
Hertzberg is trying to jam this garbage through the dopey woke legislature to further eliminate consequences for dirtbag criminals.
Don't be surprised if this thing gets a signature from Governor Dippity-Do.
From Katy Grimes at the California Globe:
The bill to reform/destroy the bail industry in California by annually revising statewide bail schedule and set the bail amount closer to the charged person’s ability to pay, Senate Bill 262 by Senator Bob Hertzberg (D-Los Angeles), has been taken off the inactive list in the last days of the 2022 legislative session and is now eligible to be voted into law.
Zero bail was rejected by California voters in 2020, but introduced as legislation in January 2021 by Sen. Hertzberg as Senate Bill 262, is ironically named the “Safe and Resilient Communities Act.”
As one bail agent told the Globe, “Hertzberg wants to rid California of every Bail Bond Agency. Cost to CA Taxpayers will be astronomical, not to mention all the jail overcrowding.”
Former LA City Councilman and LAPD officer Dennis Zine called in today to share his fears about this BS....
