Hawai‘i’s cash bail system allows defendants with means to buy themselves out of pre-trial detention and condemns indigent defendants to jail solely because they lack access to money. Cash bail undermines public safety, contributes to jail overcrowding, wastes taxpayer resources, exacerbates economic and racial inequality, and inflicts punishment on poor people who have not been convicted of a crime. I support reforms to move away from cash bail in Hawai‘i as we devise a more fair and effective pre-trial justice system for all. Please support HB1567.
