Most people have no idea what bail bondsmen do for our communities and the criminal justice system. Bondsmen help make this system work. Historically, bondsmen have gotten a bad rap- the perception is that bondsmen profit off of people who get in trouble.

However, most people don't know what bondsmen do behind the scenes- how they positively affect the community. They remind defendants about their court dates and give them rides so they don't miss their random drug tests. #Bondsmen play such an important role in the #CriminalJustice system. We need bondsmen more than ever!

We know that most people (even super wealthy people) don't typically post their own bonds. They rely on their friends and family to help post #bail, but when judges set a $0.00 bond for a habitually violent criminal and they are released - friends and family don't even know they've been arrested. We are losing the community accountability that makes this system work. The government can't do everything. We need bail bondsmen. What are you talking about Lina???!?!
