The taxpayers of New Jersey have been taken for a ride...again. This time, however, it's not just at the expense of their wallets...it's at the expense of their safety too.
In November 2015, after Governor Christie called a special session on August 4, 2015 to get NJ Legislators to pass his Bail Reform Act (only one of two times he has ever done this), the citizens passed a constitutional change labeled SCR128, allowing New Jersey judges to deny bail to offenders of certain crimes. The companion to SCR128 was Amendment S964. S964 establishes new Pretrial Services and overhauls the bail system in New Jersey.
Sold to the citizens as a solution to New Jersey's need for bail reform, this bill virtually eliminates commercial bail, in favor of an unaccountable Pretrial Release system that is the more kind and gentle approach...a "get out of jail free" card.
These sweeping changes to New Jerseys laws not only make the citizens LESS SAFE but will cost the taxpayers MILLIONS.
