Script Details

The concept of bail can be traced back to the middle ages/
And many opponents to the US money bail system say that it shows/
The concept of surety is something that works to return people to court/
But what happens when a person can’t afford bail?/
When people like Miguel sit in jail because they can’t afford to pay bail/
It isn’t just the defendant who suffers/
The spouse/
The children/
And we take a working person and make them unproductive/
We saddle them with something that will stay on their record forever/
Because the system forces them to plead guilty if they can’t afford bail./
In courthouses across the US/
Defendants plead guilty instead of fighting their cases/
Because the only way out of jail is to plead guilty to something they didn’t do/
So we take a working person with a family/
We destroy the family/
We cause the spouse to lose their partner/
We cause the kids to lose their mom or dad/
We cause the defendant to lose their job/
We force them to plead guilty to get out of jail/
And we brand them as a convicted criminal/
Now they can’t get a job/
They can’t support their spouse/
They can’t care for their kids/
Why on earth would a system like this exist/
And how in the world did we allow it to continue?/
The enemy isn’t bail, at least not just/
Sure, we don’t want people sitting in jail because they can’t afford bail…/
But our system isn’t broken because of bail/
The use of bail is a symptom of the brokenness of the system/
Our system rewards private companies with contracts to build jails and prisons/
Phone companies charge 5 dollars a minute for an inmate to make a call/
Supply companies charge 5 dollars for a candy bar. Yea… 5 dollars/
The inmate is literally a captive customer/
And the family pays/
And pays, and pays, and pays…/
Bail is the start of a giant scam to rip off poor people/
And make wealthy people wealthier/
Its just a giant con/
And bail, which used properly does work, is manipulated/
And through manipulation, poor people stay in jail/
Did we mention that minorities make up a majority of the prison population?/
Blacks are 12% of the US population/
But nearly half of our prison population/
This giant con attacks economically disadvantaged communities/
And targets racial minorities/
The result is a huge permanent underclass/
Because, did we mention, in many places felons lose their rights?/
The 13th amendment to the US constitution says/
Slavery is illegal/
But wait, there’s an exception/
Its for convicts/
So there you go, modern day slavery…/
Did you really think slavery was gone?/
And how much have we really changed?/
Our nation is at a crossroads,/
And we are in a time of crisis/
Downtrodden communities are tired of discrimination/
And these communities are rising up/
Conflict is rarely ever comfortable/
And we know that our broken criminal justice system can’t survive our time/
A new way is important/
A new way is appropriate/
A new way is necessary/
In order to actually move beyond evil in this system/
We must find a way to fundamentally change it/
And we can change it/
That’s right. You, and you and you and all of us/
There is Nexus/
We have gathered/
We have amassed this army/
