Video: Alabama Bond


This video produced by NBC 13 focuses on Alabama bond levels for murder charges.  In the video, murder bonds are compared to those for drug trafficking.  What do you think of the video and the facts presented?

One thing that NBC 13 should do is follow-up with a report on bonds set for lower offenses, such as technical violations.  There is a need to shed light on the multitude of low-level charges that fill jails and the bonds that keep them filled.
