Rapper 50 Cent Shares His Two Cents On Los Angeles’ No-Bail Policy

According to Deadline, Jackson sees the new policy as an invitation for the city’s low-level offenders to feel emboldened. “LA is finished watch how bad it gets out there,” he wrote on Instagram alongside a news clip. “SMH.” Los Angeles is still recovering from a string of robberies turned homicides that claimed the lives of rappers Pop Smoke and PNB Rock and the wife of the industry’s “Black Godfather,” Clarence Avant.
The no-bail policy will not only apply to new crimes but also mean releasing those currently incarcerated for the offenses mentioned earlier.

Los Angeles previously instituted a zero-bail policy during the COVID-19 pandemic to reduce overcrowding in jails, according to Deadline. With a crackdown on the predatory nature of the cash bail system, it would seem like this move could have positive consequences if those spared detainment decide to change the course of their lives as a result. However, concerns about the freedom many criminals have to wreak havoc on the wealthy and notable residents of Los Angeles have been mounting.
