Excessive bail shall not be required, nor excessive fines imposed, nor cruel and unusual punishments inflicted.


What Is A Reasonable Bond?
On behalf of Suresh Kumar posted in Criminal Defense on Tuesday, April 21, 2015

In the United States, the U.S. Constitution along with individual state constitutions,guarantees an accused the right to a “reasonable bond” when charged with a criminal offense except in the most extreme cases such as murder or treason. If you find yourself under arrest and facing criminal charges, however, you will likely want to know exactly what is a reasonable bond? Furthermore, how does a judge decide what amount to set bond at for a defendant?

The first ten amendments to the U.S. Constitution, collectively known as the “Bill of Rights”, is where many of the rights a defendant has can be found. The 8th Amendment address bond and reads as follows:

“Excessive bail shall not be required, nor excessive fines imposed, nor cruel and unusual punishments inflicted.”

That's a good point. But they are really stressing the idea that people are kept waiting for trial for a long, long time so instead of fixing THAT system, they are letting some pretty bad criminals go free.

You have no idea .
Long Island ,not even nyc ,has the highest taxes in the world .
A friend of mine had the money to build his dream house out there ,and they imposed such high taxes ,he had to sell it .

Taxes have caused a lot of people to lose theri homes here. I'm one of 'em.

That should never happen. A man or woman should not lose 'roof over head' because of effing ~property~ taxes.

It is my most hated tax. 2nd homes, income properties, etc. might be a different story, tax-wise. But the family home should NEVER be stolen by government. If we didn't have politicians and many other bad actors siphoning off billions of fake dollars that they print non-stop, we wouldn't need the property tax.

The entrenched robber barons that are our corporate government and its bankster bosses need to be fed a steak, strapped in, and fried. With no tears cried about it.

Florida has no property taxes, so once you buy it, it’s yours!!

It sucks! People allow their property to go shit!  Which brings down my property values!!!
