Don’t Blame Bail Reform for Gun Violence
Throughout the COVID-19 pandemic, communities across the country have been grappling with increases in violent crime. Bail reform—which has been proven to promote public safety and improve access to pretrial justice—has come under scrutiny in recent months in a continued effort to distract from the real root of the country’s violent crime problem: the availability of guns. Powerful stakeholders with perverse incentives to preserve cash bail have grabbed hold of the national conversation and filled it with unfounded claims that bail reform is linked to increased rates of violent crime. The truth is that bail reform makes us safer—and it is gun access that is a key driver of violent crime and homicides.
Washington Examiner: Violent crime spike illustrates need for more reform, not less
In the past two weeks, four Washington, D.C., teenagers have died violently , including a mass shooting at a Juneteenth event in the bustling U Street Corridor that wounded a police officer, two civilians, and claimed the life of a 15-year-old boy , who cried out for his mother in his final moments. In the nation’s capital and across the country, Americans are getting too used to unthinkable tragedies like these. It’s time to change course to return peace and safety to our communities.
How Harris County’s Successful Pretrial Reforms Suffered a Misinformation ‘Pandemic’
Meanwhile, federal monitors found that the misdemeanor reforms were overwhelmingly successful. People were appearing for court dates, time spent in jail plummeted, dismissal rates doubled, and recidivism rates were unchanged.
So why did pundits and politicians claim a bail reform catastrophe?
The Texas Center for Justice and Equity released a report in November that details how “bias in the media” and a calculated misinformation campaign promoted misleading narratives about pretrial practices.
What People Say About Me
“My husband was charged with murder and faced 45 years. I contacted Ms. Baldwin and felt very comfortable with her and her abilities. We went to court for over a year. She was always the same, did not rush the process or encourage my husband to take a plea. At the end of the day the charges were dropped. I recommended her to several people and the outcome was the same.
She would be an excellent, fair judge and my only disappointment is that we would lose her as a lawyer.”
“I am thankful that Shannon diligently worked on my case for hours to make sure I was fairly represented. She is honest, caring, and forthcoming. I couldn’t see any one else better suited for judge on this planet; I mean that from the bottom of my heart.”
“As I fight back tears, I remember my angel saying how afraid she was for me as I faced a life sentence. Empathy and kindness is all she showed me as she fought for my life. Please help me support my angel, Ms. Shannon Baldwin for Judge. Let’s rally behind her so she can continue to spread her wings. She is experienced, just, fair, and someone I will always trust. If I thanked Shannon daily for the rest of my life it still wouldn’t be enough.”
