Season 3 Episode 7 - A Cold Mom, a Brother Daddy and a Prison Baby - QUESTION? Instead of endless escalating bickering, can we try to agree on who the badguys really are? Republicans, always try to a create false normality and false equivalencies Republicans ... Ugh, they replaced Rooster with Dax Shepard? Did they ever resolve what happened to Rooster? Why are there so many stupid, brain-dead movies like this? Trump will be hamburger in days if not weeks What if everyone in the world when they went to work ... Clever show and funny ... but View all posts >

> For people whon cannot pay bail, there are bail bondsmen who loan the money. Not relevant, not an answer. I don't know what the recommendation is, but your attempts to spin this in the most fear-mongering way is akin to those who twist Black Lives Matter or Defund The Police into Antifa ... it's just not so. Just because some people who call themselves Democrats say, or are reported why the Right-wing as saying something that is problematic does not mean that is what is going to happen, and it also does not mean Republicans do not have worse suggestions, such as those who support QANON or Stop The Steal. Your whole argument is just an alternative to name-calling the Democrats. You seem to spend all day every day on that too. Is it your job? Do you get money for posting these inane claims? > Liberal shows like The Connors won’t let you forget about real-world politics for even a second. The tweeting super-criminal in the white house is the one who will not let us forget about real world PROBLEMS for a minute. Today it was reported that he was blocking vaccine rollout. It looks more and more like this lunatic was actually trying to kill as many Americans as he could. It makes him a kind of super criminal, so I hope he has to face justice like one. I never heard of that. She is nice looking enough, but I agree, for me, tattoos are for hookers, cheap strippers, meth-heads and porn stars, and people who are just too clueless to know better. People who drive on the public roads need to be managed and responsible. To not give people who we have so many of them in the country to do the work we all seem to refuse to pay for in menial jobs and picking our fruits and vegetables some kind of way to drive or to exist in the country is to make them a criminal class who can be totally exploited and if they stand up for themselves they can lose everything they have. Apparently you feel that your personal financial benefit from that inhuman system over-rides the ethical constraints against slavery and exploitation. > And it's sad because Democrats want these people out of jails That is BS. It is so disingenuous of you to distort the issue to make Democrats look bad, when if you look at it objectively Republicans really look worse and affect a lot more people. With your Republican programming to always do that, that is the exact point of my initial post. What Democrats are looking for his is a way to: <i>In effect, the cash bail system criminalizes poverty, as people who are unable to afford bail are detained while they await trial for weeks or even months. Cash bail perpetuates inequities in the justice system that are disproportionately felt by communities of color and those experiencing poverty. Spending even a few days in jail can result in people losing their job, housing, and even custody of their children. Studies show that pretrial detention can actually increase a person’s likelihood of rearrest upon release, perpetuating an endless cycle of arrest and incarceration. What is more, the cash bail system often leads to the detention of people who do not pose a threat to public safety.</i> What is the problem with you people? Why can you never address a problem without turning it into a way to insult more than half the country? Because you hate democracy and feel better when other people are miserable. That is a lot of the kind of people who are Republicans. You want and support a justice system that is unjust to the people you do not like, and then you posture hugging the flag or holding the Bible when so many are immoral haters. Just about every Right-wing group is funded from outside and most of them are fake. The opposite, anything community or actually Left-wing is monitored very closely by police and intelligence. I remember in the movie Fahrenheit 9-11 how a community group was infiltrated by the local police, and they only found out because they happened to see that a police officer in a neighboring community happened to die and he was the one infiltrating their group. Like most of the raucous Right-wing comments here are fakes as well. > Right-wing extremists are moving all around from app to app to try to keep US intelligence off their scent. I am sure this is true, but look at this Capitol Hill storming ... a lot of current and ex military and law enforcement were in on that plan. It is most likely no different inside the intelligence community, they have their secret sub-groups or current and ex people banding together for their own purposes, or selling their expertise to outside groups. You think that the only people to be release from jail ought to be the rich ones then. Is it a problem, and if so how would you solve it? By flapping your goddam gums and whining as usual, huh? In the grand scheme of things this is a minor issue having nothing to do with the continued existence of the country. Like I wrote in another comment, Republicans are all about bringing up the irrelevant or obtuse and pretending it makes the Democrats wrong. They may be wrong in the case of bail, but there is a problem and at least they are trying to solve it. Just like health care, Republicans criticize but have no solutions except get to be rich so you can afford your health care, or just die. What is wrong with cash bail? In effect, the cash bail system criminalizes poverty, as people who are unable to afford bail are detained while they await trial for weeks or even months. Cash bail perpetuates inequities in the justice system that are disproportionately felt by communities of color and those experiencing poverty. Spending even a few days in jail can result in people losing their job, housing, and even custody of their children. Studies show that pretrial detention can actually increase a person’s likelihood of rearrest upon release, perpetuating an endless cycle of arrest and incarceration. What is more, the cash bail system often leads to the detention of people who do not pose a threat to public safety. This starts with a presumption of release, which places the burden on prosecutors to prove the need for detention and limits qualifying offenses for detention to only the most serious offenses. Three out of 5 people in U.S. jails today have not been convicted of a crime. This amounts to nearly half a million people sitting in jails each day, despite the fact that they are legally innocent of the crime with which they have been charged. Most jurisdictions in the country operate a cash bail system, in which the court determines an amount of money that a person has to pay in order to secure their release from detention. >> Can everyone agree the level of discourse on the MovietChat Politics Board is pretty low? Do you think there is any overriding reason the political boards all over the world are so bad? I think it is because people who have enough money work very hard to undermine political discussion so that the lack of political discussion leads to a defocusing of the average citizen so they are politically powerless and the system can be manipulated for a marginal amount of emotional manipulation within the media. The only ones who have the power to do that are not Democrats, or Antifa, or Black Lives Matter, Gays, Transexuals, Christians or any other group distraction from real national and international issues, it is the people who have big businesses, empires and believe that gives them the right to own everything, socially, economically, environmentally or militarily. These things are not in the hands of people being operated for the good of the people almost anywhere, they are interest whose primary concern is political cancer, to gain control, everything other than that goal is secondary and local and national governments are manipulated to that end, right down to the chat board level, because with all this technology and all that money - they have the means to do that.
