The next Guest on "The Bail Post" is James Lindblad. He has been a bondsman in Hawaii for over 35 years. He has witnessed many changes to the criminal justice system over the years. Join us as we discuss HB 1567, its passage and the publics' response which caused the Governor of Hawaii to veto the bill.
Mr. Lindblad suggests that the real fight was over the need for a new jail. HB 1567 was the response of progressives so that a new jail would not be needed. But law enforcement, business owners and the mayors of the four major islands banded together with social media to spread the message that releasing everyone was not working and that a change was needed. The public responded.
Is the "woke" luau over in Hawaii? James Lindblad is hopeful that more positive change is coming.
