Well Brothers, the moment has come. I’m pulling the pin on my bail bond business. My license expires 11:59pm tonight. I ain’t renewing it.
The last three years has been a challenge to say the least. In another role I play, as a lobbyist representing the Nevada Bail industry, we prevailed over three major legislative threats, including one by our own regulators, the Division of Insurance🤢 who essentially no less than tried to strangle their own baby in the crib with their bill.
But it was the judges who did us in. For three years, I sat on a Supreme Court Committee as they implemented new experimental protocols of pre trial release that circumvent commercial bail bonds. Yea, the judge might “OR” you (own recognizance) or not! but you’ll wait 3-5 days to find out. Oh, what about that silly little thing called…your JOB?? Wellll, kiss that thucka g’bye!!
Anyway, the last straw was on August 28, California banned commercial bail bonds. We’re too close to that toilet rim not to get sucked down the tube. Not to mention the company that owns mine, has three offices in California. Erk!!
So I looked an Activist Judiciary in the eye, and Brothers, it ain’t perty. If these people represent the top 1% of knowledge and power in the criminal justice system, then I’m scared.
