freidog: The judge denied a motion to reduce Clark's bond. He remains in jail with bond set at $725,000.

He's 17.  He'd have trouble fleeing the country even if he weren't under arrest.
Ban him from using internet-connected devices for anything other than phone calls/court business, freeze any accounts he transferred money to and be done with it.
Bail is so incredibly stupid in this country.


Funny thing about the judge is she sits there and hears all the facts.  You don't.

The kid had previously stolen almost a million dollars (1.8 million today) in bitcoin when he was 15.  The FBI caught him and recovered half the bitcoins but not all of them.  They also didn't charge him because of his age.  So he has about 500k-1million in money secreted away.  He also has no parental oversight.  He was living by himself in a swanky apartment.  And he believes that he can get away with these crimes.  He's a 17 year old with a secret bank account and not one single tie to the community.  For him it makes all the sense in the world to abscond to belize and tell the US to go fark itself.

I'd say bail makes sense here.

Whenever someone makes this argument it's ALWAYS in favor of a white person. That's the white privilege in action.


That's fine to think.  It's probably even mostly correct.
But my position is very few non-violent cases should ever involve pre-trial detention.
Pre-trial detention is to serve two purposes
Flight risk, which can be mitigated in a number of ways, most of which do not involve jail
Public risks, which are often minimal in non-violent cases and can be handled better with restriction of behavior rather than jail.

If he violates his conditions of bail, throw him in jail. That's fine.  But it shouldn't be our default stance.

No, it doesn't. If he's a flight risk, he sits in farking jail until his court date, but maybe the judge wants new carpet in her office.
