I think the "no bail" mandate will certainly save a lot of money by reducing the inmate population in Kearny, but what will it do for the incentive not to commit a crime? If I'm a shoplifter, for instance, don't you think I'll be emboldened to shoplift more because I know my odds are pretty high I won't go to jail, I'll just be released with a notice to appear?
I know there's a huge backlog already with warrants, doesn't this new mandate just increase the potential growth of the backlog?
I wonder what stats will look like on this program this time next year.
