Maybe someone can explain something to me. If you are stopped with many outstanding existing warrants as shown above , taken to police headquarters, posting bail and then let go, why won't the person just continue doing it again? S

Ryan Maybe you should read the 8th Amendment, there is no cruel and unusual punishment, just avoiding your legal responsibility.

Steve- read the 8th Amendment- 'Excessive bail shall not be required, nor excessive fines imposed, nor cruel and unusual punishments inflicted.' In other words, based on this and Habeas Corpus and the English Bill of Rights upon which we based these articles, bail is mandated unless the crime is such that the person is a danger unto others or themselves. Bail is all but guaranteed to be offered and may not be 'excessive' to the person- someone making $50k a year isn't going to get a $10mm bail- bail is meant to be enough to make you show up for court.

Ryan Take a look at the first listing of September 26 with Jazmine Mathis. How many warrants where she has not appeared in Court do you give a person? That's the problem with our legal system. She should not have been released until all warrants were satisfied in whatever Court issued them. She have been remanded to Freehold County Jail. Do you see a problem with that??
