Rebuttal for Anti-Bail Propaganda

Print PDF
By now, many of you have heard the watercolor chatter about John Oliver's purposefully misleading piece on bail. Unfortunately, Mr.Oliver's misstatements are not unique in the war on bail-related misinformation and his commentary seems to have taken on an unexpected life of its own.

To that end, we have prepared the attached document that directly addresses some of the falsehoods in the Oliver piece, but is equally applicable to much of the other anti-bail propaganda we are seeing, as well.

We suggest you print it out, share it with your staff, colleagues and friends and use it as you see fit to help all of us disseminate a positive truth about the important role that bail plays in helping our criminal justice system work the way it is supposed to; efficiently, fairly, effectively, and at no cost to taxpayers.

We recognize that you are on the front lines of this fight and want you to know we are also doing everything possible on our end to fight for this constitutionally protected system.
