i was recently reading about some all star nba basket ball player (i want to say it was the guy who does the sprite commercials, but i dunno, hehe) who was arrested for beating his wife. he had his bail set at $25,000 dollars, which he paid immediatly... which got me thinking... shouldn't bails be set at a percentage of someone's networth? a $25,000 bail for someone who's a multi-millionaire is like asking most normal people to give up a penny... and sure... i'd do it without a thought, heh. and for a poor person to have a $25,000 bail... they might as well skip the formalities and give him a life sentance, right then and there.
i think that's totally unfair, but whatever. i also kinda think this is unrelated to the topic, hehe, but... since no one is discussing the topic at hand, maybe they'll discuss this one
