Patriarchies tend to be very paternalistic, by having a strong behavioral norms.
The robbers, or the murderers?
This was why I was interested to read the scattered thoughts in the effective-altruism-sphere about bail reform. Some are too much of a risk. They are stuck in jail until their trial, which could take a long time: Length of time that defendants spend in jail before trial source.
The inmates awaiting trial just sit in their cells doing nothing. People who commit serious crimes might be looking at years or decades in prison.
Do the few months they gain or lose because of bail really make that big a difference? This article tells the story of a man accused of attacking some police officers; he claimed innocence and expected to be vindicated at trial. Prosecutors offered him a plea bargain of sixty days in jail, which he refused.
But he ended up spending more than sixty days in jail waiting for trial, which kind of defeated the point. Second, because much of the time this ends in people just taking the plea bargain.
For example, the man in the article above almost took the plea bargain after serving sixty days in jail — an understandable choice, since it let him walk free immediately with time served.
If his case goes to trial, he might have been be found not guilty and avoid the black mark.
Third, because people who are detained pretrial end up getting longer sentences. Some more seems to be related to prosecutors setting harsher plea bargains for imprisoned defendants because they have a worse bargaining position. People in jail have a bad habit of making incriminating statements that get reported and used against them on trial.
Suspects out on bail can rack up prosocial accomplishments to list off at their trial — they give the example of going to a counselor and making restitution to victims.
And they get the option to delay their case until the trail grows cold and prosecutors get bored and everyone just agrees to a lesser sentence. Plea bargaining is the rule, not the exception, and anything which makes it easier or harder is going to impact the large majority of cases There have been a bunch of studies trying to determine to what degree bail vs.
People tried their best to control for all observable factors, but this never works.
This study also finds that size of bail was less important than whether there was bail at all, which confused me until they pointed out that most suspects are really, really poor. As per the Stevenson paper: Some of these defendants are facing very serious charges, and accordingly, have very high bail.Search and browse our historical collection to find news, notices of births, marriages and deaths, sports, comics, and much more.
