Most of us are probably pretty familiar with the drill. If we haven’t experienced it ourselves or known someone who has, we have at least seen the drill performed on the countless cop shows on television: Someone gets arrested, and they wait in jail until someone can bail them out. Seems sensible enough, right?
I mean, there needs to be some accountability to make sure that person shows up to court. Having money riding on the line seems to be a reasonable solution to this.
