    This is NOT a victory.THIRTEEN MILLION OF IT IS BEING FUNDED BY ASSET FORFEITURE.ONE OF THE ORGANIZATIONS THAT HAS THE GRANT FOR SUPERVISED RELEASE IS ALSO THE ORGANIZATION WHICH MAKES RECOMMENDATIONS ON ROR.All caps 100% intended. Let‘s face the reality of this - another bureaucracy to get government funds - funds created by our clients! Robbing Peter to supervise Paul. How can we not scream about this? There should simply be NO BAIL for nonviolent charges. This scheme is reprehensible. And on what basis can judges be challenged? "I would not have ROR‘d that person anyway."
