Nonprofit group paid man's $5,000 bail. The day he was released he KILLED his wife. Should those who posted his bail be charged?

"Samuel Lee Scott had previous convictions for drug crimes and assault dating to the 1990's." Who in their right mind would bail out such a creature? Shame on them.

    No. The judge that authorised bail should be investigated.

      Fine. But the judge didn't actually POST bail.

    That he was granted bail and that is was only $5,000 means whoever granted bail did not consider him to be a threat. That was their mistake, not the mistake of the group that paid his bail.

      Surely the group knew about his past. Would YOU have helped pay his bail?

    you have misunderstood the legal process. The persons offering the bail conditions are responsible for doing so or otherwise. The people paying the bail are responding to an invitation from the authorities to do so, it is up to legal practitioners to decide if bail should be offered or not.

    There seems to be no criminal legal case for the presenters of the bail to answer.

      Would YOU have offered to pay? If not - WHY NOT?

    This is what happens when liberal do-gooders who don't live in the real world get involved.

    They are the same people who oppose capital punishment for child killers who go on to murder other innocents upon release.

    No. If he was assessed as being a risk he should not have been granted bail.

      He was in jail for bashing the sh*t out of his wife - destroying her eye socket - among other things. Would YOU have helped to pay his bail? IF NOT - than what excuse do those who did have?

    I wonder where that non-profit group gets its funding. The whole thing is tragic and ridiculous. I hope the group gets sued out of existence.
