Ask most bail agents about their business these days and you’ll find out some sobering news. They are facing laying off hard working people, many of them family members, as they scramble to cut costs during the great recession. They are unable to pay their bills. They face eviction, foreclosure and possibly bankruptcy. Many long time agents (this one included) have never seen anything like this before. The drop-off in business is staggering. Two publications in California have just run stories about this. The Times Herald and the Imperial Valley Press both tell similar stories.
It boils down to this: Our clients have been hit the hardest by this economic downturn. With their homes underwater, many are unable to collateralize or pay for a bond. I read recently that the unemployment rate for the bottom ten percent of taxpayers is an astonishing 30%.
In Los Angeles County, crime is way down. This blows holes in many social theories linking economic hardship to crime. These are indeed strange times we are living through.
