Bail disproportionately affects the poor and minorities. Bail happens before one is ever found guilty. There are countless stories of people being arrested and not able to afford bail so they sit in jail for days to months before their trial. In the meantime they lose their job and sometimes their children are taken away. And after all of that it turns out the cops got the wrong guy. It only works for people who can afford to buy their freedom.
