"Cash bail, by definition, is a form of conditional release for a person who has been accused of a crime, but has yet to have a trial. The idea is simple: require people to put an amount of money they can afford on the line and they will have a financial incentive to come back to court until their case is resolved. Over the past few decades, however, cash bail has become a mechanism for incarcerating low-income people before trial. Judges routinely set bail amounts that people cannot afford, particularly for people of color. As a result, we have a two-tier system where two individuals charged with exactly the same thing are treated differently based on their race and economic status."
