Bail reform in Chicago appears to have increased crime, suggests study

Two University of Utah professors have concluded that pretrial releases lead to increased crimes, calling into question the bail reform measures. Prof. Paul Cassell and Prof. Richard Fowles re-analyzed data on increased pretrial releases in Cook County, Illinois (Chicago area), concluding that the number of pretrial releasees who committed violent crimes increased by about 33%.

Thats impossible. How can releasing criminals back into the public increase crime? Thats racist.

So I guess Newsvoice doesn't actually care about real alternative media. I tried to submit this a few days ago when only CWBChicago was reporting on it. Thankfully a "real" journalist finally picked up in this story. Here's their history/mission statement if anybody from Newsvoice reads this. https://cwbchicago.com/our-history Anyways, here are more articles related to this subject since I can't add them as links: https://cwbchicago.com/2019/11/while-chief-judge-claims-no-horrible-incidents-under-his-affordable-bail-program-we-found-more-murders-allegedly-committed-by-men-free-on-affordable-bail.html https://cwbchicago.com/2019/11/chief-judge-says-there-have-been-no-horrible-incidents-under-his-affordable-bail-program-these-people-might-disagree-if-they-only-they-were-still-alive.html https://cwbchicago.com/2020/02/prosecutors-man-fatally-shot-15-year-old-while-on-affordable-bail-for-gun-charge.html https://cwbchicago.com/2020/02/avondale-man-charged-with-shooting-robbery-victim-while-free-on-200-affordable-bail-for-possessing-a-stolen-handgun.html https://cwbchicago.com/2020/02/court-records-reveal-even-more-men-charged-with-murder-shootings-while-free-on-affordable-bail.html

Create the problem, promise to give a solution if people pay pay higher taxes. Of course, if you don't want to pay higher taxes then you don't care about fixing the problem.

It is almost as if Chicago wants more crime. The saying "no such thing as bad press" does not apply here.

Did those professors come up with a "positive plan" as to making it work better; were all angles looked at?!! Or did they just want to pass judgement on those the law has subjugated?
