      The amount of bail is absurd and I do not think that heavily subsidized private companies that are destroying whaat should be public lands have a right to private property.

      My daughter Michelle Blessing is in jail as on of the Hobet 20. According to my congressman, the bail process violated her 8th amendment rights.
