Crime-enabling, Controversial Zero Bail Policy Is Back In Los Angeles County.

(Los Angeles, CA) — The Zero Bail policy is returning to the city and county of Los Angeles. The controversial policy bars law enforcement from requiring cash bail for certain people before their arraignment. The policy will apply to people who are arrested for misdemeanor and ‘non-violent’ felonies. People arrested for sex offenses, domestic violence, or a crime involving a weapon will still need to come up with bail to go free. The policy has been criticized as a major reason why crime is on the rise in the region. It was reinstated after a judge granted a preliminary injunction in a class action lawsuit that seeks to end all cash bail in the county.
