“This is an insane way of doing business.”

I don’t know who made this video but it was sent to me by Guy Ruggerio. Guy is the President of the Association of Louisiana Bail Underwriters. Guy also serves with me on the board of the Professional Bail Agents of the United States (PBUS).

I like the video very much. (If anyone knows who put this together, please let me know.) Often we bail agents are accused of speaking or acting from our pocket books. It is true we have a vested financial interest in pretrial release. But we also have a front row seat and a unique perspective that allows us to evaluate different methods of pretrial release. All too often the taxpayers are sold a complete bill-of-goods, which certainly seems the case here.
