Sentencing hearings make the six o’clock news, bail hearings not so much. If people knew, would they care, that judges rarely wait until the trial is over to unleash the most insidious and tangential depature from justice of them all? For after the formal introductions are met, bail is set! And round and round, slithering both low and high, this perpetually consistent flaw weaves its way to ensure justice continues serving vengeance as its master. Prosecutors smirk for they all know, the bail which is set, will not be met, and their tools of vengeful sloth needn’t even be lifted to strike the final spike. As they await the date, cozy with pride, until yet another soul delivers his own crushed fate upon a plater. Through the wire or even a cellmate does it really matter? The accused must serve his fate.
