Title:
The problem with the U.S. bail system
Speaker:
Camilo Ramirez
Description:

Since 2000, the annual number of people convicted of crimes in the United States has stayed steady, but the average number of people in jail each year has shot up. How can that be? The answer lies in the bail system— which isn't doing what it was intended to do. Camilo Ramirez details how the cash bail system disproportionally hurts people in low-income communities and communities of color. [Directed by Patrick Smith, narrated by Addison Anderson].
