Bail reduction is just so wrong

So much for holding people accountable for their actions. Of course the Oregonian, being the Oregonian, fails to tell us why the bail was reduced. But, this is a case where it is clear that this person is responsible (allegedly as the Oregonian puts it) for the death of another. His blood-alcohol level was more than twice the legal limit.  [Bail reduced for man charged in Old Town drunk-driving crash that killed Gresham woman].

Don't expect the sentencing, assuming a guilty verdict, to be of any consequence. Drunk driving is socially acceptable.
