What’s Wrong with the System – Part 89

I read this story in today’s paper:

Coppell police and the Dallas police SWAT team last week arrested a 26-year-old Dallas woman on multiple drug charges and seized weapons and an estimated $8,000 in drugs from a residence in the 11000 block of Audelia Road.

Police said they seized 47 grams of crack, 2.5 grams of cocaine, 26 grams of methamphetamine, 90 grams of marijuana, a Tech 9 automatic weapon, three handguns, drug delivery paraphernalia and $2,900 in cash. (name withheld) was arrested and charged with two first-degree felony counts of manufacturing or delivering a controlled substance, possession of marijuana and unlawfully carrying a weapon.

She was released from Lew Sterrett Justice Center on Saturday after posting $16,000 bail.

Look at the charges. And this person gets $16,000 bail? What exactly do you have to do to be held without bail outside of murder?

So, this person is back on the street. All of the hard work of the Dallas Police Department, and this person is out on minimum bail.

What’s wrong with this picture?
