3. People need to bring more pressure to this issue now.
Unless your arrested, or a friend is, this is the type of issue that gets forgot, Don't let it!

These people need to be released and action must be taken against the judge that set these absurd punitive bail amounts. As well the thug-ish cops need to be held to account, for the rough treatment, and obvious power-trip mentality many of them maintain, and others accept as a part of the culture.

8. This is where school yard bullies end up...
They become cops, judges, and mayors. Authority is what it is.....always question it, always pressure it, always make it expose itself. I hope we as a nation didn't sleep too long. Shocked by the horrors of 9/11, we let down our guard and they slipped the patriot act and homeland security right by us.

10. Whats this called again?
Oh yeah, that's it

A totalitarian military police state

We all need to embrace the possibility of going to jail. That's what it will take to break the system to turn it back into a democracy.

Base our economies on the desires of the human spirit and the healthy and happy future of our planet. Also liberty. Probably a host of others.

We have to earn our livings contributing to the common good and the better futures for all.

And the only people that's going to accomplish this are each other of us all.

12. LA's City Attorney Carmen Trutanitch
The Los Angeles County Superior Court Judicial Council sets the bail schedule for misdemeanor violations and failing to disperse (state penal code 409) carries a minimum bail of $5,000, said Frank Mateljan, a spokesman for the City Attorneys Office. A charge of resisting arrest carries a minimum bail of $10,000, he said.

. . . .

At arraignment it is possible to have the bail amount raised or lowered, and to request no bail and release on a persons own recognizance, depending on the specific charges and background of the defendant, said Mateljan.

According to the City Attorneys Office, the LAPD can exercise discretion, with some limitations, when arresting someone for a misdemeanor violation. Depending on the situation, officers have the choice to detain and release the arrestee in the field with a citation; detain, book (for example, fingerprint and photograph) and release the arrestee with a notice to appear; or detain, book and recommend bail for the arrestee.

Carmen A. Trutanich was elected City Attorney for the City of Los Angeles on May 19, 2009, and assumed office July 1, 2009. Carmen, who was born and raised in the South Los Angeles neighborhood of San Pedro, attended local schools, earning both his undergraduate degree and MBA at the University of Southern California. After working alongside his father at San Pedros StarKist tuna cannery and teaching at local community colleges, Carmen decided to pursue a law degree.

Upon completing his law degree at the South Bay University College of Law in 1978, Carmen joined the L.A. County District Attorney's Office, where he cut his teeth in the "Hard Core Gang Division" before playing an instrumental role in the formation and success of the Environmental Crimes/OSHA Division. Determined to complete an ongoing gang prosecution, Carmen became the first and only Deputy D.A. to secure a death verdict while assigned to the Environmental Crimes/ OSHA Unit. Carmen was also the first prosecutor in California to obtain a felony conviction for illegal disposal of hazardous waste and the first to draft a set of court-approved jury instructions for environmental crimes.

Carmen left the District Attorneys Office in 1988 to work in private practice. In 1998 he formed Trutanich-Michel, LLP, where he continued to focus on environmental litigation. Carmen has been lead trial counsel in more than 300 trials, including more than 100 jury trials.
