Eli Savit is a nationally recognized attorney, public servant, and civil rights advocate who currently serves as the Washtenaw County Prosecutor. Prior to his term, he served as a law clerk to Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, was a civil-rights and public-interest attorney, and also had a career as a public-school teacher. In addition to serving as Washtenaw County's Prosecuting Attorney, Eli is a faculty member at the University of Michigan Law School. Eli has been an integral part of several major, successful civil rights and environmental initiatives in Michigan and across the country, including a successful effort to have the Michigan Civil Rights Commission recognize discrimination claims against LGBTQIA+ Michiganders, and assisting New Jersey, Maryland, and Puerto Rico in their quests to hold corporate polluters responsible for waterway contamination. In this inspiring installment of Open Mike, Eli discusses his close relationship with late Justice Ginsberg, and how her tutelage helped inform his decision to carve out a career shaped by public service. Additionally, he and Mike consider the inherent problems with the American cash bail system (one of two for-profit bail systems in the world) and reflect on Eli's recent, successful elimination of Washtenaw County's cash bail program! Show Notes [00:09] Eli Savit's background and bio as Washtenaw County Prosecutor. [01:26] Welcome to the show, Eli! There was a prosecutor for how many years prior to you? [2:03] How was taking over an office from someone who had been there for twenty-eight years? [03:46] You were born and raised in Ann Arbor, went to U of M Law School, and were clerk for two United States Supreme Court Justices, is that right? Retired Justice Sandra Day O'Connor and late Justice Ruth Bader Ginsberg. That had to have been amazing — what was that like? [06:05] The same-sex marriage case, Obergefell v. Hodges, wasn't that a Michigan case? [07:50] The way that last year went down with the former president getting that appointment… that was such a horrible way that went down, and I'm sure it was sad for Justice Ginsberg's legacy. Do you have any opinions on that? [10:50] After working as a clerk for two icons, you could have had any job that you wanted, ones that pay more lucratively. What was that thought process like? [12:46] The way you chose to run your campaign, one of radical inclusivity, was really impressive. When I read that, I wondered how you were going to make everyone happy — I've never heard of a campaign like that! Can you take us through that? [17:19] Let's talk about cash bail… last year, we filmed an episode with two young ladies who are reforming the system via Bail Project Detroit… it was such an eye-opening thing for me as an attorney. You're the first prosecutor I personally know who has eliminated cash bail. Could you explain to our viewers why you believe so strongly cash bail should be done away with? [25:57] Entire states are now abolishing cash bail. Washington D.C. got rid of it in 1992, and New Jersey got rid of it in 2017. Crime rates in New Jersey subsequently plummeted. [27:55] Research shows that people will still show up to court, even without cash bail as an incentive! Something like 90% of people show up to their court dates, either way. Is that what you're finding in Washtenaw? [30:42] After the bail situation, what are some other initiatives your office is working on? [31:09] On the first day of his term, Prosecutor Savit banned all zero-tolerance policies in favor of adopting a more holistic, case-by-case approach to various crimes and conditions under which they occurred. [36:00] On Open Mike, we've had at least ten guests who were wrongfully convicted. As a prosecutor, what does your office see as your role in helping to free innocent people who were wrongfully convicted in Washtenaw county? [40:28] There's a lot of discussion about blanket immunity which completely protects people from prosecution for crimes related to testimony they provide… what are your thoughts on blanket immunity for people who are bad actors in processes that result in wrongful convictions? [43:57] We see a ton of jail house snitches and bad IDs from police misconduct… have these two areas of potential problems been examined by your office? [47:18] Where did you teach in New York City? [48:28] You're doing so many amazing things in Washtenaw County, and I can't commend you enough. I know it's not easy, and I can't thank you enough for your service. We'll have you on in a year or two to touch base on all the incredible work you'll have undoubtedly done. Thank you again for being on Open Mike! [49:20] What a life, Eli is leading! Doing amazing things to change the criminal justice system for his constituents, and hopefully the world! Comment, like, and subscribe to Open Mike! We really appreciate you; stay tuned for new episodes coming up soon.

There is an uptick in violent crime President Biden needs to own and then strive to mitigate its cause(s). Is bail reform part of the problem?  Does it hamstring a judge's discretionary ability to keep violent criminals off the street while awaiting trial? While bail reform was needed to some extent, is it an over-correction in places like New York?Chris continues the theme of the criminal justice system and asks if this is the time to abolish cash bail, a system which perpetrates inequities disproportionately upon black and brown communities.   Also on the table: Critical Race Theory popped up again yesterday, as General Mark Milley schooled Matt Gaetz and Michael Waltz at a House Armed Services Committee hearing, as to why he thinks it is important to understand and study systemic inequity.  Beyond this moment in a Budget hearing, Chris sees it as a tough nut to crack with those who can't even acknowledge that systemic inequality exists.   What's your brand?

With that in mind, I decided to rebroadcast this interview with Ashley Edwards about why the cash bail system is a worthy place to put our activist attention and how confronting it can keep literally millions of people safer from the abuses of incarceration. It's not abolition, but it's a start. (Original show notes below.) ____ Bailout funds have been in the news for weeks now, but how do they fit into the bigger picture of the criminal justice and cash bail systems?

What happened in 1861 was, so far, worse. 2. As Americans, we are invested in the idea that our fellow citizens accused of a crime are innocent until proven guilty. At the same time, we are invested in a bail system in which those accused are able to be released only if they can pay the price. Is it fair that the wealthy who are accused walk while the poor remain in jail awaiting their day in court? This week's guests do not think that it is fair, and they are working to end the cash bail system.

EP.42 Since 1954, a thriving black middle class has emerged, along with growing numbers of Latinos and other groups who are reaping the rewards of a multicultural society. And, of course, the ascent of the nation's first black President only accentuates the achievements of many African American professionals in recent decades. Lurking not far below the surface, though, is the grim reality of a society that in many respects is as segregated as ever, and arguably one with declining opportunities for those left behind in the changing economic climate. In many of the nation's urban areas, large numbers of the generation that grew up after the Civil Rights Movement now toil in low-wage or underground economies, with only distant connections to the national, let alone global, economy. And in the most profound betrayal of the promise of integration and opportunity, the United States has created a world-record prison population, fueled by policies that have exposed substantial portions of African Americans to the life-changing consequences of the criminal justice system. What is cash bail? Three out of 5 people in U.S. jails today have not been convicted of a crime. This amounts to nearly half a million people sitting in jails each day, despite the fact that they are legally innocent of the crime with which they have been charged. Most jurisdictions in the country operate a cash bail system, in which the court determines an amount of money that a person has to pay in order to secure their release from detention. The cash amount serves as collateral to ensure that the defendant appears in court for their trial. What is wrong with cash bail? In effect, the cash bail system criminalizes poverty, as people who are unable to afford bail are detained while they await trial for weeks or even months. Cash bail perpetuates inequities in the justice system that are disproportionately felt by communities of color and those experiencing poverty. --- Send in a voice message: https://anchor.fm/hollywoodandchinadollshow/message Support this podcast: https://anchor.fm/hollywoodandchinadollshow/support

California's Prop 25 on this year's ballot would replace cash bail with a risk assessment algorithm. Civil Rights and justice reform groups have fought for years to eliminate cash bail as it discriminates against the poor, primarily people of color. Now some of those same groups team with bail bondsmen to fight Proposition 25, which some say replaces racism with more racism. Bill Whittle Now with Scott Ott comes to you thanks to our Members.

Is Prop 25 California's Best Chance to End Cash Bail?

Proposition 25 is the culmination of a long fight over the bail system in California. A win for the "Yes" vote would uphold a law that abolishes cash bail and replaces it with a system that uses "risk assessment" algorithms to help judges decide whether to keep people locked up before trial. A win for the "No" vote would stop these changes and keep cash bail in place. The bail industry is in the "No" camp, but so are some progressive groups who think this new system would also be unjust and want the state legislature to go back to the drawing board on bail reform. That's why the campaign around Prop 25 isn't just about the merits of cash bail — it's about whether or not this is the state's best chance to end it for good.

Proposition 25 on the November ballot seeks to end the cash bail system in California and replace it with one based on risk assessment. If passed, it would make California the first state in the nation to completely eliminate commercial bail. Prop 25 stems from Senate Bill 10, which was signed into law in 2018 by then-Gov. Jerry Brown and would have ended cash bail effective last October. Instead, a coalition against the legislation collected enough signatures to put the issue up for a vote. Proponents of Prop 25 say this would make the process more fair, where a defendant’s freedom isn’t dependent on their economic status. Those opposed say ending cash bail burdens police departments with ensuring defendants appear in court and takes away a person’s choice to secure release from jail through bail. Forum takes up the debate.
