The news is out: [Bail was set Tuesday at $1 million for several protesters arrested during demonstrations against a fatal police shooting in Lancaster, Pennsylvania, a move decried by many including the state’s lieutenant governor, who called it “blatantly unconstitutional.”
Lancaster police arrested 12 adults and one juvenile after about 100 people gathered outside the city’s police station Sunday following the police killing of Ricardo Munoz, 27, who authorities say chased an officer with a knife. Police said the demonstration devolved into a riot that caused damage to the station, vandalism to local businesses and a small fire, and officers used “chemical munitions” to disperse the crowd.
At least seven of them were held on $1 million bail, according to police.]
The bail amount is just outrageous and clearly against the Eighth Amendment. When all is said and done, sue and recall the stupid judge.
