    Think the cops should be arrested for letting him go three times. Maybe he will kill someone tonight.

    The cops have to let him go thanks to Bail Reform, which was enacted by the politicians ruining this state.

      Inaccurate. In all three instances described, an appearance ticket was issued. This is the ‘invitation’ to appear in court, and has long been the preferred alternative to taking an arrested person immediately into custody if the arresting officer deems the offender not an immediate danger to public safety. Bail is never imposed until AFTER the arrested person shows up in court for arraignment or is jailed. This was true long before the recent bail reform measures were passed.
