The Bail Project

A friend just pointed out The Bail Project.

I hadn’t been thinking about how poor people are much more likely to rot in jail before a trial. Having not thought much about it, I assumed that bail amounts were being reasonably set and bail-bonds was a weird but more-or-less reasonable system to keep people from fleeing before their trial.

Maybe I should do more thinking and less assuming.
