No survey for me. I just went right to it.

Besides, it's in the Constitution that excessive bail is a NoNo.

I am shocked an appalled. One should never click randomly when being forced to take a survey they didn't consent for. One should strive to produce the most half-assed, contradictory results as possible.

To the OP – The article is both well sourced and well written. It's about time we see a lawyer quoted in the news level-headedly talking about … well … let's see … the principles of law. And a journalist who can provide proper context. (When I saw not involved in the case, I thought, great the journalist is trying to bias the context of the lawyer and got to pleasantly eat crow in the next sentence (or two) where it was pointed out that the source was a defense lawyer, which should lead the reader to understand his world view on bail.)

Just choose Prefer not to answer and you get to the article.

because your not guilty till after a trial. Bail is just a way to stop you from running away from facing the charges.

Can't we just punish people a little for being accused? It's trending, you know…

Yes, but….
I don't think that the framers expected it could be a year or more between crime and trial.
